This week we shipped three improvements for publishers: a campaign search bar, invoice downloads, and made some tweaks to whitelists.
Campaign Search Bar
Some of our publishers now have hundreds of campaigns, so reverse chronology wasn’t cutting it anymore. Search by campaign name! This returns campaigns and what state (e.g., drafted, active, etc.) they’re in.
Downloading Old Invoices
You never know when your accountant or the tax man might bug you for an old invoice. No more hunting through old emails. Download the PDF for any previous billing cycle from your Billing Page in Account Management.
Each creator’s page now shows you which of your whitelists they’re on and allows you to add them to another.
Furthermore, when you’re adding creators through our whitelist dialog, creators already on that list they won’t show up in the search. We wanted to avoid duplication, but let us know if this change in behavior is not what you were expecting.
We have made some significant improvements to the readability and usability of our publishers’ “Feed” of events, and a small improvement to our whitelists.
Creator channel stats are now shown on hover.
Items are highlighted when you hover over them.
The separation of days is now less intrusive.
The color scheme is now unified.
The filters area is brightened up.
The background is now a pleasing blue gradient.
This new look should be less taxing to wade through, so you can get back to slinging codes sooner.
Notes added to a feed item regarding a creator will now also be posted to their profile.
Invitations to Woovit from adding someone to a whitelist are now more flexible. If you invite someone using an email address, they can sign-up to Woovit with a channel attached to a different email address and still be on your whitelist.
If you’re a publisher that would like a demo of these capabilities, let us know at [email protected] or our chat box in the lower right of this screen. We look forward to hearing from you.
Woovit has always tried to block creators we think are running scams, or that are too small to help your campaign. We take this very seriously — we’ve blocked over 10,000 accounts. This problem plagues the industry and is a big reason we started Woovit!
What if a qualified creator is just bad for you though? Someone that doesn’t give you fair reviews or incessantly bugs you. You still want to automate a campaign, but how do you stop that creator from getting code?
We’ve solved that: introducing the Blocklist. This is a publisher-specific list of creators that will be prohibited from getting codes from you, and limit interactions altogether. You can find it at the top of your screen as a publisher.
Unlike Whitelists, each publisher has only one Blocklist. Adding a creator to your blocklist means they:
Can’t see your campaigns
Can’t request codes from anyone in your organization
Will be automatically removed from any of your organization’s whitelists
When a creator has been blocked, but still finds a link elsewhere to a campaign, they will see this message.
When someone is blocked, you can add a note so your team members on Woovit know why they were blocked. However, any member of your organization may unblock. Blocklist activity will show up in the organization feed.
Publishers can block by:
Searching for the creator’s handle
In response to a video delivery
From their profile page.
Once blocklisted a creator won’t show up in your searches when whitelisting. You will also be unable to send them proactive offers. This means you don’t have to worry about any codes being sent by accident.
Woovit knows which creators are getting blocked by publishers. It’s helpful to everyone for us to know who is getting blocked. If we see many publishers individually blocking a creator, we will review and consider whether that channel should be blocked for everyone.
It’s your codes, your choice, we won’t lobby you to reverse a block. If you feel uncomfortable with us seeing who you’ve blocked we’ll consider building opt-out mechanisms so you can keep that private.
We hope this is a helpful step forward to automate and improve your outreach to creators!
