Beta Test Period Ends!
AuthorAdvance has just finished its open beta test phase. This phase lasted a little longer than we intended, but since we launched several months ago, we’ve fixed hundreds of bugs, cleaned up formatting, added new features like the Dashboard and user Activity, and generally made the site more stable and easier to use. The result is a state-of-the-art networking and research tool that is, at long last, officially open for business!
But the progress doesn’t stop there. During the testing process, we received a lot of feedback about how to make the site more user-friendly and easier to navigate. We’ll be implementing a number of changes to put that feedback into practice. We’ll also be updating our Getting Started Guides with step-by-step instructions to help both new users and veterans alike get the most out of what the site has to offer.
We’ll also be focusing on data development, which means filling out the site with more markets, resources and services. Because our listings are openly-editable you can assist with these efforts by adding new ones at any time. We’re working on a few incentives to sweeten the deal. More on that soon, but you can get a jump start by visiting our Listings and adding some new ones today.
And last but not least, we’re already hard at work on the next set of new features, which we’ll be unveiling in the coming months. As we continue move forward, we want to hear from you about the kinds of tools and features you’d like to see become a part of AuthorAdvance. Contact Us and let us know!
