Announcing: New Social Media Feed Templates 

These templates are already available for all our previous and new users, and you can find them in the Settings bar in the Layouts section. 

To read about our design phase and check the new templates, follow the links below: 

Design phase: Brainstorming, mockups, and prototypes

Before starting to design, we had in mind the following principles: 

  • User needs, requests, and feedback 
  • Follow the latest UI design trends.
  • Responsiveness and fit to any device, browser, or a website builder

The research phase included a few workshops among our marketing, UX, and customer success teams. And lot’s of pizza!

You can gain numerous advantages as a marketer by merging the power of social media channels and your website.

If you want to keep your audience up-to-date with your latest company news, a Twitter feed will be an excellent fit for you. 

Or, if you may want to engage your audience by showing your newest collection. In this case, embedding an Instagram Feed will be a good idea for you. To increase your event visibility, consider trying a hashtag campaign.

Don’t forget that you can always combine your social content from several social media accounts in one place if needed.
