While Disqus should be recommended for helping to further blog comments as a viable and worthy part of the blogging experience, it should also be recognized that this all comes with a price for end users.
Today we are announcing a new initiative to support the free press, the exchange of ideas, and democratization of publishing: Postmatic Press.
Remember when social media first arrived on the scene, and how it was lauded for the way it now gave customers a voice to connect with the businesses they buy from?
And remember how, as cool as it was for customers to have that ability, it was even cooler for the businesses that embraced social media?
Replyable brings the best parts of Postmatic to every WordPress site. It's affordable, zero-configuration, and built of the same stuff that has made Postmatic the engagement system of choice for WordPress professionals.
Since our Michigan retreat we have been heads-down working on something new. You might say it is Postmatic's little brother.
Development is complete and we're ready for your help with testing.
We’ll be in Philly later this week for WordCamp US 2016 and hope to see you there. If you’re in the northeast, don’t have plans this weekend, and love WordPress as much as we do… then come meet us!
Say hello and hear about our new product
Look for Jason in a Postmatic t-shirt. He’ll be handing out early invites for something new we’ve been working on. It has a logo which looks a lot like what you see here. 🙂
Oh! Tacos and beer!
On thursday night we’ll be co-hosting the first annual WordCamp US Taco Club. We’ve teamed up with CalderaWP to put on a laid-back and non-exclusive event for fellow WordPress enthusiasts to talk shop, dream up products, and maybe even hack a bit. You can RSVP if you think you’d like to join us.
We’re about to launch a zero-configuration monetization platform built on Postmatic.
It works by inserting contextually appropriate ads in the header and footer areas of your Postmatic emails – For posts, newsletters, digests, and comment notifications. The ads are tailored to both your content and your subscribers – ensuring an experience that is smooth, makes sense, and generates revenue.
The goal is to make you money while giving you free Postmatic service.
We’re calling it Postmatic Pays.
Interested in trying it out? If you have a WordPress-based site with an active commenting community and subscriber list of at least 500 email addresses get in touch. The beta is open now.
