Recalling the outgoing year with Linkis

christmas

We hope you all enjoy the holiday season and already wished a Merry Christmas to your beloved ones. We also congrats everyone, and would like to look back at 2015 and remember all the work we’ve done for you.

All new themes for your links

This year we were happy to release a whole new Horizontal theme. Some of us believe this is the neatest and the most beneficial theme because of its design and features for promotion. Briefly, it’s just a one-line panel on the top of a webpage which you can edit adding your social profiles, blogs, and websites. So far your Twitter followers will be able to find you on other platforms, or see more of your projects when opening your customized links. Once you update your personal settings at Linkis with the info you’d like to promote, all of your Linkis URLs will work for you.

Horizontal theme

We didn’t forget about those of you who prefer a Vertical theme and updated it too. We replaced the non-hottest features (Promo block and RSS feed) with something more useful. Now you can add up to 6 links aside from your social accounts and use it for various blogs, or websites, or whatever you want to promote.

We are also proud of a new Twitter Surf Theme which is a perfect choice to get more views for links you shared earlier. Your readers could simply miss something in your feed when checking you on Twitter. We use buttons ‘Next by @your_username’ or ‘More from @your_username’ to encourage your followers to read your previous posts shared with Linkis.

New look for links on mobile devices

We did a great research on our users’ experience and created a few new variants for the look of customized webpages on the small screens. Now you can see your links customized with a panel of a Social Mobile or Twitter Surf themes (see a description above).

Social Mobile theme, as well as a Horizontal one, gives you a chance to promote your social profiles and blogs, or websites. At the same time, it doesn’t distract your readers from the page they are on as this info is hidden in a menu.

Mobile theme

 

Both themes showed a huge growth of views for Linkis users over the first week. So we’re on the way to implement the final updates and make it possible for you to manually choose your mobile theme (now it is set up automatically). See below how Twitter Surf looks on smartphones.

Support interaction

This year we decided to interact more with all of you to know better your needs. Since late October we implemented a chat form on our website and have already processed over 216 dialogs. Whenever you want to share your thoughts, ask anything or leave a feedback you can easily contact us via our chat window. In case we are offline, we receive your messages via email, so everyone is heard.

And we are excited to tell that this year we reached the first million users on our platform! We appreciate you stay with us and we’re thankful for your support and loyalty. Everything we do at Linkis we do for you.

May the next year be even more awesome for all of us!

Looking back at 2014 with Linkis

sylvester-465873_1280

It seems we’ve done a great job upgrading our service step by step this year. But let’s make a short overview of all that happened in 2014.

More and more about you. We extended the functionality of a personal panel: now it includes two more social accounts – YouTube and Instagram. You can promote your social activity even more and help your readers to know you better. Isn’t it fantastic to have a possibility to share anything you want with the most important info about yourself?

Daily Autoposting. To make it easier for users to stay tuned, we’ve provided a new additional tool for users who love Twitter and want to keep up with their followers, but feel a lack of time for it. That’s why Linkis Autoposting was created. After activating this option, users will update their news feed with a simple tweet of the most favorable link among the people they follow. It looks like you keep up with the latest news making no efforts for it.

Stats. We added a great tool to analyze your shares via Linkis. Statistics on each link processed by Linkis shows views and replies of your readers, so you can easily analyze your tweets and your audience.

Online support. Any questions you have are important for us, so we decided to simplify our interaction. Our users have an option to immediately contact our Support team using a Chat bar hidden on each webpage customized via Linkis. If our agents are offline your message goes directly to our mailbox so it won’t be missed.

Twitter instead of ads. Another great break is TwitterAnywhere plugin released by Linkis a few months ago. Our browser extension replaces banner ads with Twitter news feed widgets. So any time you’re surfing the web getting mad of all that promotional offers and needless information, just enable TwitterAnywhere. Imagine, you’re keeping up with the latest news on Twitter while reading some articles or visiting your favorite websites.

Sure there is a bunch of upgrades on Linkis home page which now includes the top links processed by our service and a button to activate Twitter automation option immediately.

Nevertheless, we still have a few more great ideas to realize next year. Hope you’ll stay with us to become a part of these changes at Linkis. We truly thank you for being our friends for all this time. And wish you to get the best of the next year, tons of joy and prosperity, lots of smiles and everything you’re dreaming about!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

11 brilliant examples of promos for Linkis

Hi, guys! As you know, one of the coolest features in our Sidebar and Twitter Media themes is promo-blocks creation. Writing captions for them is an interesting and creative task. Today we’ve collected (and even invented) great slogans that illustrate how to write the best captions.

1. The Times
If The Times used Linkis to promote their new filial newspaper for iPad readers, they could write a slogan like this:

Key points in the caption: phrase “Read The Times on your iPad” targets the audience, users of iOS devices.
Slogan Yesterday is history encourage readers to be more concentrated and focused on up-to-date events, and call-to-action part Read and stay tuned encourages viewers to click on  the promo-block.
