Curated blog with news, events, listings, jobs and exciting stories about web design & web development.
We’ve been looking for a platform for our internal team communication for some time – like Slack, but much clearer. Oh yes, and it should also offer an app. To cut a long story short: our search is over! Say hello to Heartbeat, which has just released event upsells, upsells embeds, isolated groups, and a video walkthrough.
Actually Heartbeat is a community platform which allows you to host both free and paid events, conversations and more. It is therefore a new alternative to Circle or Bettermode (previously Tribe). As said, however, it can also be used for our use case described above. Watch above video for a full walkthrough of the platform.
With Event Upsells, Heartbeat has just introduced a new way to help you monetize your community.
Events for paid groups with upsells enabled are now displayed to your free members with a lock icon. They can click on the event page, purchase access to the paid group, and join the event!
Previously, $mention embeds for paid content could not be viewed by your free members. So Heartbeat has now added an upsell pop-up! So if you mention a paid course, document or event, your free members can click the “Unlock” button, pay and get instant access.
Do you need to create groups where members can’t see anyone outside their group? To isolate a group, simply use the Isolated Groups toggle in Settings > Manage Groups. This means that members of the group will only see other members of the group as well as administrators in the Online Now section, DMs, directory and @mentions.
Customized Login Emails
Heartbeat has also just introduced customized login emails. Now all login emails from your community will be customized with your community name in both the email and subject line! They’re also customizing emails based on context, e.g General login, New user onboarding and After new users pay.
Finally, the Heartbeat team is currently working on expanding the documentation of their user guide.
