In our last article we featured some of our favourite product development like the Personal Information Filter and various platform improvements. This month we have some very exciting LeadBoxer updates for everyone. So, let’s not waste anymore time and dive straight into it.
What’s New with LeadBoxer:
New Leadcard – We’ve revamped the Leadcard to bring better user experience. The idea was to fit all of the information we collect into one beautiful snapshot of your visitors’ profile. You can find more information on the Leadcard here.
Redesigned E-mail Notifications – We added the option to send smartlist notification to your e-mail as HTML opposed to CSV. This makes it easy to look at the leads from the smartlist without opening your spreadsheet application.
Improved Daily/Weekly Alerts – We also had the daily/weekly e-mail completely rebuilt! This makes all of your weekly/daily leads clickable which directly sends you to their specific Leadcard (without having to log-in and look for them yourself or to open the CSV spreadsheet). We hope that this change will improve the user experience and save some valuable time.
Other New Features and Improvements
Here is a list of some other cool updates we made in July:
We added a link to reset password in profile page (no need to leave your account to do it).
We added a new page with all your invoices. The link to this page can be found on the payment page
We added the option to set or change the timezone for each of your datasets. This setting can be found on your profile page.
We now remember your latest ordering settings of leads (leadscore or last event) so when you come back it’s set to what you had before.
We now also consider the order of leads when creating and updating the smartlist.
When you select a smartlist from the drop-down menu, we now expand and show the specific property settings for this smartlist.
We made the share and assign buttons more prominent on the lead details section so that people can find them easier.
Thank you for sticking with us so far! We will see you again next month.
In our last article (which you can find here) we featured some of our favourite product improvements such as regional filters and CSV download fields. We are back with this new instalment to give you information on the LeadBoxer updates in June.
What’s New with LeadBoxer:
Personal Information Filter – we have had numerous requests from clients to be able to filter out leads by E-mail address, first and last name. We are finally answering your prayers. With our new filter you can sort out your top leads even better. Just remember to look for it under the name “Other Fields” on the left-hand side of the dashboard as shown in the image below.
Auto-capture URL Parameters – another long-awaited product update. We can now automatically capture lead values from the following lead parameters:
This means that if your visitors views a page with the following URL:
We will automatically add these values (email, first name, lastname, etc) to the specific lead. If you want to get more technical, you can see the full changes on our Changes page, which you can find here; what you need to know is that you can enrich your leads even further with this new feature.
We’ve been trying to improve some aspects of LeadBoxer. Here is what we’ve been working on in the past couple of weeks.
Save/Reset Button – We found an issue with the reset button in the leadscore setting page, which is now fixed.
Lead Tags – All of the lead tags are now being converted in lower case so that we avoid duplicate tags.
Tool-tip Message – We have added a tool-tip message for recipient user selection in smartlist save dialog.
Finally, here are two bug fixes we have solved in the last month:
The company and user icons and the leadscore graph are now rendered properly in Gmail while sharing leads
Resolved issue for custom CSV fields in daily/weekly smartlist notification mail
Those were the main changes and bug fixes we have initiated in June. For the full report you can check our Changes page, which you can find here.
It all started 23 years ago when I was born in…just kidding. Hello, my name is Yordan Tachev. I came to Amsterdam from Bulgaria almost 5 years ago to pursue a bachelor’s. Since then, I’ve worked here and there mostly in Business Development and Sales. I recently jumped the opportunity to work at LeadBoxer just a couple of months after graduating, because I’ve always found the start-up environment thrilling. I am currently working as a Sales and Marketing professional, assisting both teams with operational activities and witty jokes.
This is the first of many blogs I will be writing to show some insights into life at LeadBoxer. I am very excited to share the ups and downs of getting a startup to the next level. This week I am delighted to share with you, our recent trip to Dublin and the Tech Conference we attended as well as the start of my time here at LeadBoxer.
It was just another normal day at work when out of nowhere my team asked me if I would like to join them in Dublin for the Tech Summit. You can imagine my surprise when I heard that! My answer was, “Hell yeah, when do we leave?”
Fast forward two weeks to the 14th of February, and I was anxiously waiting at work, with my travel suitcase packed and my mind full of all the improbable scenarios which I will face with LeadBoxer, like closing at least 10 deals in the first hour or talking with investors and impressing them…yeah, as if.
We arrived in Dublin around 20:00 PM and although we worked the whole day before our flight, I was full of energy and eager to explore. The plan was to find some food and delve into what this vibrant city has to offer. Well, the only things we found at that late hour were burgers and beers, which was more than perfect for us! After rewarding ourselves for surviving this far, we walked around the busy streets trying to absorb in mere hours a culture that has existed since the 10th century AD.
However, we were there to work and not on vacation. Early in the morning, we were ready to conquer the world…eh, the tech summit, I mean. We quickly set up the booth, and with coffee in hands, started probing our surroundings. Surprisingly, there were not a lot of people at 8:00 in the morning, go figure!
Around 11:00 AM people started pouring in and overrunning the defenseless salespeople all around us. After that, everything was a bit of a blur. I don’t think I have ever spoken with so many people in my life! But I can say one thing for sure, it was amazing! Everyone was buzzing around, exchanging ideas, demoing products, and talking tech!
The craziness continued for several hours. When I wasn’t talking with people, I was updating our followers on all the social media channels in existence or drinking copious amounts of coffee. When I managed to finally look at the time, it was already 18:00! We had been standing for almost 10 hours. I couldn’t even remember the feeling I was having, but I’m pretty sure it was something that rhymes with wired.
Surely, it should be over, right? Right? Apparently, it is customary after a long day at work to go drink and socialize with the other companies that attend the event. After several hours of drinking and appearing on all of the venues we were invited to, it was time to head home.
The second day was a bit slower. Most people did not appear before 10:00 AM, it was almost like they stayed up late or something. But as coffee and croissants were swirling around, people started to appear from all the crevices of the building. After lunch, our Co-Founder, Cralan Deutsch represented us at the StartUp100. The presentation was heart-warming and informative, you should have seen it!
We only had a couple of hours left as we had to leave for our flight around 16:00 PM. Therefore, we decided to give it all we had left. We mustered all the strength we had and the business cards started flying.
Before you know it, it was time to leave. We packed our bags, closed the laptops, and with pockets full of contacts and heads full of new adventures, we headed towards the airport. It was my first conference, and before I even realized it, it was over. We ate only junk food, we were up on our feet the whole day, we didn’t sleep much, we couldn’t see all that Dublin has to offer, but it was one of the best experiences ever, and I wouldn’t change it for the world!
