Efty (an advertiser here TLDinvestors) has taken to Namepros where a lot of their users reside to get help on improving Efty.
It’s been more than four years since @lionel_efty and I set out on a mission to change the way domain name investors manage, market and monetize their portfolio’s. And what a ride it has been!
After a private beta with a small group of users, we decided to turn to NamePros.com in December 2014 to announce our public beta and with an open invite for anyone to sign-up and provide feedback. And feedback we got. A lot. In fact, the feedback has never stopped and it is safe to say that it is thanks to the community here that Efty transformed from our humble vision of a domain portfolio management tool into the full-fledged sales platform it is today and that we’re continuing to build for you.
Pretty much all of the new features we shipped over the past few years were build on top of the original framework that we developed for Efty back in 2014 which resulted in a somewhat bloated application that isn’t always as fast and bug-free as we like it to be and frankly, has started to look a bit tired.
That’s why we set out to completely revamp the application, streamline the menus, simplify navigation and build a responsive layout for all devices and operating systems. The result is a platform with a strong emphasis on helping you make more money, by driving more sales and better reporting.
We think it’s turning out awesome but we need some unsalted feedback before we flip the switch and roll it out to our entire userbase.
And what better place to turn for feedback than here on NamePros? The very same place we announced the first version of our platform
The new Efty is not just old wine in new bottles. We already incorporated a lot of feedback and delivered on a lot of the popular request posted by members in the many Efty threads on the forum.With the new Efty, you can:
- Create custom categories for your marketplace (yay!)
- Rearrange the order of premium domains on your homepage
- Remove the Make Offer form from the marketplace (for your BIN domains)
- Get in-app notifications for new inquiries and transactions.
- Turn on/of logos in your marketplace or For-Sale landing pages.
- Show listings on your marketplace in chronological or alphabetical order.
- Activate two-factor authentication for added security
- Quickly see which of your domain names are under review.
And please, do let us know what you think in the comments. Did we miss something? Spotted a bug? Love it, hate it? All feedback, comments, questions, and suggestions are very much appreciated.
I think it’s smart to crowdsource ideas to improve the product and wish more companies would do that.
