Swish.ink Update #4: End of Beta

This was sent out as a Newsletter, subscribe here.

It's been 4 weeks since the last update, and this update officially marks the end of the beta for Swish

What's New

Here's what's been added to Swish since the last update.

Public Demo

I wanted to add a public demo, because I think it is great when anyone can take a look around a product without having to sign up.

There's now a fully featured demo for Swish at https://demo.swish.ink. Works exactly like the main product, but the data is refreshed every 24 hours.

Landing Page

A landing page has been up for a little over a week now at https://swish.ink.

I want to add an FAQ section, but I'm not sure what questions people have. If you have any suggestions, let me know (just reply to this email or send a new one).

Registrations are OPEN

Since the Beta is over, anyone can now sign up for swish (link).

Billing and Pricing

Huge thanks to everyone who helped me with this. I've settled on a pricing for Swish that I think is pretty good.

The "Growth" plan is priced starting at $5 per blog per month. Here's the link to the full pricing table.

Every blog created before 31st October will get a 3-month 100% discount on the first subscription that begins on or before 31st December

What's Next

Here's what's planned next for Swish.

Analytics

I've been thinking about this for a while now, but I'm being careful so that I can implement it a seamless way.

I now have a huge incentive to implement this quickly since the pricing system is dependent on page views, which can only start being measured after analytics are implemented.

Multiple Users per Blog

I find it very useful for a blog to be able to have multple users and contributors. So over the next weeks, that capability will come to Swish.

Multiple users will be able to have access to the same blog, but with different permissions. So one could invite contributors, or editors without giving them too much access to the blog.

Thank YOU

I'd like to say a huge thanks to YOU for being interested in trying out and using this product for the approx. 6 weeks beta period.

Every blog created before 31st October will get a 3-month 100% discount on the first subscription that begins on or before 31st December
