Creator Profile: Custom pages

Feature

Just like you'd create additional pages on a website, you can now do so too on your Creator Profile. Use custom pages to set up pages like:

  • About page: Deeper dive into your background, the work you've done, and the testimonials you've received from clients or brands you've worked with.
  • Work with me: If you're a service provider, this is a great way to include a page to share the type of services you provide and a call out to reach out to you.
  • Sponsor me: Want to work with brands? Create a page with your newsletter details, demographic information, and the type of brands you'd want to work with.

This is a great way to expand your Creator Profile if you don't have a separate website. You can add up to 3 custom pages, and you won't need to get used to a new editing experience—it's the same as our email editor!

For more information about how to customize your custom pages on your Creator Profile, check out this Knowledge Base article.

Explore Paid Recommendations in ConvertKit

Improvement

We’re making it even easier for you to get paid to promote other creators in your Recommendations modal with Paid Recommendations. Now under the Earn tab, you’ll be able to more easily setup the integration with SparkLoop, and then discover a list of creators and newsletters who are looking for fellow creators to promote their list.

In the discover section of Paid Recommendations, you’ll be able to:

  • Search for specific creators you’d like to promote and recommend
  • Filter based on payout per subscriber, max payout, and expected earnings
  • Review the requirements of each paid recommendation

No more bouncing between SparkLoop and ConvertKit. Don’t leave money on the table and start earning from the work you already do.

Insights (beta): Advanced analytics to improve your marketing

Feature

Set up Insights to get advanced analytics on how effective your marketing channels are with Creator Pro today. Insights will give you a much more comprehensive view of your...

  • Best acquisition channels: A deep dive into how organic search or paid is working, which piece of content converts the best for you, and more.
  • Most engaged segment: A month-to-month view of which segment continues to be the most engaged in your content.
  • Best customers: Find out who your best customers are, how much it takes to acquire a customer, and which promotion emails generates the most sales.
  • Marketing effectiveness: Take a look at how long it takes for a subscriber to turn into a customer. This helps you calculate how much advertising budget you have, and helps you hone in on where you should iterate your funnels.

This feature is still in a closed beta. If you've been invited, you'll see it in the top corner of your dashboard. Currently, only Commerce sales and Stripe integrations will be tracked.

Redirect to your Recommendations page

Improvement

Decide how you want the Recommendations flow to behave. We now have an auto-created page of your curated Recommendations that you can use as a page redirect after a subscriber joins your list. This is perfect for creators who are…

  • Using third-party forms that don’t support the modal: You can now use Recommendations by setting up a page redirect and start growing your list with our network of creators.
  • Save time from embedding code snippets: Don’t want to embed code snippets on all the pages that host your third-party form? You can also use this page to set up a page redirect after a subscriber joins your list.

We love to see the network growing and driving thousands of subscribers for active creators, and we want to continue to make that easier for more of you.

Email editor: Shortcuts, custom CSS, and deliverability alerts

Improvement


Simple and powerful updates to our email editor are here to improve your writing experience and your email marketing efforts.

  • Slash menu: Easily add in blocks by typing in the slash / character to search and add the block you need as you're writing your email. No need to stop and hover over the + button.
  • Custom CSS: Under each Section > Advanced of your email, you can set up custom CSS which you can later use to target in an HTML block. Particularly handy if you share your posts on your own website.
  • Deliverability alert: When your email is too large, it risks being clipped by email clients, like Google, which affects the deliverability of your emails. Now, when you're drafting your email, you'll get an alert if it is over 100KB.

Keep writing and we'll keep delivering new updates that make that experience even better.

Integrations: Gravity Forms

Improvement

A native integration with Gravity Forms is here! Gravity Forms is a powerful WordPress form builder that create beautiful lead generation forms, accept online payments, create surveys and quizzes, or build custom forms for niche solutions!

With the ConvertKit Add-On by Gravity Forms you can automatically send all form entries to your ConvertKit dashboard, enabling you to easily grow and manage your email list. Here are some features the new add-on include...

  • Custom Fields—Every field on your form can be mapped directly to a custom field in ConvertKit. Collect more information on your subscribers and use that data to deliver highly optimized campaigns.
  • Tag Support—Keeping track of large number of subscribers can be quite a task to take on. By attaching tags to your subscribers, you can keep them organized, helping to provide a tailored content experience.
  • Creator Network Recommendations—You can easily display Recommendations after form submission, encouraging users to sign up to other email lists and follow other creators.

For creators currently using the ConvertKit plugin for Gravity Forms should use this new native add-on for more updated features. Any existing settings will automatically migrate once the new add-on is installed and active.
