Email template update: New default content


You can now add default content to your email templates to make writing emails a simpler task in your future. When you create a broadcast or sequence using an email template, it’ll start with the default content you added, which you can edit for your new email. This means saving time on duplicating old broadcasts to make a similar one. Changing the default content for a template won’t affect any of your existing emails using that template. It only affects the starting point for emails moving forward.

To add default content, open an email template in the template editor and enter your default content in between the tags that say “Start of default content”/“End of default content”. Then click the “Save” button.

You can update your email templates here.

New pricing method: Pay what you want


You can now create a product with “pay what you want” pricing. This new feature allows you to set a minimum price for a digital product you’ve created so you can give your audience the option to choose how much to pay. Creators who struggle with knowing the value of their product can use this feature to test out how they can monetize their audience and even use it as a tool to engage and build trust with their audience. To learn more about how to use this feature, check out the support documentation here.

Display multiple subscription pricing plans


You can now display up to three different subscription pricing plans for a single product. You can offer different price points for different content tiers, or offer a discount for longer subscription periods.
