I know… I know… I KNOW.
I’ve been promising a lot over the last few months regarding EGR upgrades, apps and new videos. We’re overdue for a full encompassing update on what we’ve done so far, but more importantly what’s coming very soon…
What we’ve done:
- Completely reprogrammed the engine under the hood that runs EGR so that everything is controlled via API. This essentially just allows us to port functionality over to new mediums like mobile phone apps. As always, this type of process ended up being much more expensive and time consuming than we projected which delayed all the rest of the goodies but this needed to be done for everything else to be possible.
- Mobile back office update: The first noticeable change made possible by the API was a new mobile friendly EGR back office dashboard. (note: we upgraded the front end website to the new mobile friendly design last fall)
- Tracking functionality: Along with the new mobile friendly back office came some new tracking functionality allowing you to see exactly what your prospect is going on your website. Initially this new functionality is only available via web browser in our new mobile friendly EGR back office dashboard. Watch this video for an intro walk through. We’ve not made a big deal of this yet because the functionality is not as simple or smooth as it will be from the coming mobile apps, but it was necessary to launch via web browser first so we could debug the programming that makes it all possible. Also we wanted to make sure everybody could use the functionality even if you don’t have an Apple or Android mobile phone.
What we’re on the cusp of completing:
- Android & Apple Mobile Apps [ETA: August 1st]: These apps will make it extremely easy (and fast) to create and share unique tracking links with your prospects. Once created, these links can be easily shared via text, email, Facebook and more with one click. After sharing you will receive push updates on your phone letting you know when prospects have interacted with your site. As a part of this tracking you will be able to visually see exactly how much of each video your prospects have seen just like in the screenshot above which is already available via web browser.
- All New Intro & Presentation Videos [English ETA: August 7th, Spanish ETA: August 21st]: We’ve already re-filmed (see highlight videos below) the videos and are in the middle of putting it all together with a complete visual refresh and some new graphics to make the videos more effective and compelling than ever. We also have a new “welcome to the team” video that will provide some added kick in the pants to help your prospect make the decision to get started.
What we could really use your help on:
- We’re missing some FREE energy bill examples on many of the newer territories. Check out our full compilation @ http://downloads.energygoldrush.com/ and if you have or have access to any of the missing territories please send a hi resolution scan over to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll give you free EGR for life! Only the first person for each territory will qualify so don’t wait, get them over to us ASAP!
That’s all for now folks.
