Norby Community Newsletter – No. 19

Norby Community Newsletter – No. 19

Hey Norby Crew,

We’ve kicked off summer pushing hard on some of our top user requests with more to come later this month – it’s User Appreciation July! If you’re new around here, welcome to the crew. We’ll pop into your inbox every few weeks with a mix of product updates, announcements, tips and tricks, helpful resources, and interesting articles.

Now, let’s dive in!

🩱 One For You and One For You Too 🩱

If you haven't already, check out our new referral program. Share 🤝 Norby with your friends or other creators and community builders in your orbit with your unique referral link. When they become a customer you’ll both get a month 100% free – yep, that's FREE.99. Grab your referral link from your dashboard or learn more here.

💻 From URL to IRL 👬

We're all attending more IRL events now that Hot Vax Summer is in full swing – and we know you all are hosting them, so say hello to IRL events on Norby! You can now create IRL events alongside your online ones with all the same Norby SMS, email, and analytics features you're used to. We've also added a CONTENT_LOCATION variable so you can easily reference the event address in your SMS and email campaigns.

We'll be continuing to refine our IRL event features this summer, so hit reply to let us know if you have any feedback or requests!

🧱 New Kids on the Block 🧱

We've been continually adding new customization options to our page editor. Say hello to the newest kids on the content block:

  • Header Block. We've removed the Creator/Brand profile style toggle from your appearance settings and replaced it with a new header block you can use in any of your pages. These header blocks allow you to customize the type, style, and position of headers on a per-page basis, so you have more control over individual pages than ever.
  • Newsletter Signup Block. You can now create customizable newsletter signup blocks that allow people to subscribe to your newsletter inline on any page (you can also still add newsletter opt-ins to event and Drop signup flows). The new newsletter signup block allows you to customize the title, subtitle, and label shown on the subscribe button, as well as add a post-submit message to thank people for subscribing.
  • Newsletter List Block. Similar to the event list block, you can now create a single block that will automatically populate with a list of your most recent newsletters. You can also filter and limit newsletter list blocks by tag, which means you can easily set up category or archive pages for your newsetter that will always keep themselves up to date.

🎨 A Little (More) Redecorating 🎨

We've made some more tweaks and adjustments to the dashboard UI that should make life better, the sun shine a little brighter, and may even make food taste better (no promises). Two tweaks we made recently that are worth mentioning:

  • You'll see a new grid layout when browsing your pages. The new layout will show you a preview of what's inside each page, so you can easily find what you're looking for at a glance.
  • There’s a new full screen preview for events, pages, newsletters, and Drops. Tap the 👁 icon next to any of your content in your dashboard to check it out.
