This is the composer:
As you can see, you can set the Title, Written Content, Link Text, Link URL, Segment Filters, Feedback Options, Auto Sidebar Open, and Open Links in New Tab options. Everything you need to write a compelling post is here at Beamer. You can also add media, such as images and videos, see below:
Note that the Link URL does not even have to be from the same website Beamer is installed in. It can be any URL. This means that you can direct users to other things outside of your website with the icon installed. We use Beamer in three websites, all having the same news feed. However, the reason for this is that our business spans three websites rather than one. Even a single Beamer account can be reused and recycled for similar and connected websites.
Typical Use Cases
Beamer can be used for many things. In this case, we use it to update users about our blog and promotions. Other uses include SaaS companies seeking to announce new features and improvements. The ability to install Beamer into apps, makes it an excellent choice of news feed for SaaS businesses. This is a clear advantage as there are no push notifications for apps. One useful feature which helps set it apart from push notifications or other products is language support. Beamer can adapt to many languages, see here:
You can also translate common fields manually, see below:
Beamer is the best news feed plugin available. It will improve engagement greatly, and provides user feedback. The team have really built a powerful SaaS product and every website needs this tool. We use this for our three connected websites, and this news feed establishes links between each of the three websites, allowing inter-connectivity between them. We have not seen anything similar on the market yet, so we have full confidence this is the best product of its kind.
In sum, my review is as follows:
- Easy to install and use
- Highly customisable
- Increases user engagement
- Multiple language support available
- Same plugin can be installed in as many websites as you wish
- New version now includes push notifications
