Some exciting news for y’all!
We’ve been hard at work at HQ these past few weeks, as we witnessed COVID-19 engulf nations and with it, jobs, livelihoods, any sense of what “normal” is.
But instead of fear, what we also saw was an incredible surge of creativity on BMC. Since then, we’ve seen thousands of COVID-19 initiatives on the platform as well as thousands of affected creators get the support and membership they need from their audience.
We’ve been so inspired by this that we worked tirelessly to make sure that we bring you the features you’ve requested specially at this time.
drum roll please
All new homepage
Categories is finally here which we will use to showcase creators on the homepage. You can now search over 300 niches (or add a new one), giving you a chance to discover more creators and be discovered.
Your page just got an upgrade
You can now also add a “one-liner” bio to your page to succinctly let your supporters know what you’re all about or what you’re working on. We’ve also improved the mobile view with this update.
Want to highlight your Membership option? You can choose to make it the default widget (from your Membership settings)! New members can now leave a comment (just like supporters) and will also be listed on the page.
Better supporter experience
Your supporters get hella love too, as we’re rolling out an improved experience for them. Logged in users/past supporters can now see your latest posts so they can be up to date on what you’re working on. A supporter app is also in the works, launching very soon.
What seemed normal just a couple of weeks ago has been upended by COVID-19. We’re with many of those who have lost their jobs and their livelihood. At a time when nothing is certain, we’ve always believed in the power of human creativity and community to give us hope and sustain us.
What do y’all think? We’d love to get your feedback and as always, thank you and keep creating
P.S. More good news on the way, we’ll share tomorrow
