This new type of data is going to be crucial to unlocking the full potential of your Searchie account.

Jump to the "Hubs" section of this post to learn more about these features.

New
  • You can now choose to force the highest quality video to load first for your audience when they view your content

Custom Onboarding

image (10)
  • Customize the Right Section of the Onboarding page by adding additional steps for your audience to complete when they first access the Hub
image (11)
  • Add attributes with input elements in Steps to start collecting information about your audience in the onboarding sequence
image (12)
image (13)
  • The data collected here can be used to segment your audience as well as to enhance the Directory experience with filters- but more on that later
  • You can also add custom text and video elements to onboarding steps to make sure any important information about your Hub is communicated ASAP to new members

Audience Directory
(Guide)
  • We've introduced a new Hub page for Pro users that can be turned on in your Hub Settings
image (15)
  • In the Directory, your audience will be able to find others in your Hub by searching their name or by filtering the list using attributes
image (17)
  • Your audience can hide their profile from the Directory in their account settings if they don't wish to be discovered by others in your audience
image (18)
Audience
Segmenting with Attributes
(Guide)
  • Using attributes, Pro users can now segment their audience into even more specific groups

  • These segments can be used the same way they always have, allowing you to customize the content experience for your audience in Hubs with information they may have entered in their onboarding sequence or elsewhere
Segmenting with Hub Activity
(Guide)
  • Along with the ability to segment based on information the audience has explicitly provided, Pro users can also segment their audience based on their viewing habits
