What's new: stats, charts and drag-n-drop

Posted by Ksenia Borisova on April 6th, 2015

We have just released an update we don’t want you to miss, because this release is all about making it easier for you to manage your widgets.

Widget statistics at a glance

You can now view statistics on each of your widget represented by a chart and a world map. When you login to your GetSiteControl dashboard you will see that your widgets now have a new button called View statistics. Click this button to open the statistics page where you can view the widget’s impressions and clicks conveniently displayed on a bar graph. And there is also a world map that shows where the people who click your widgets come from.

What’s new: Color it up!

Posted by Ksenia Borisova on December 8th, 2014

It’s been awhile since we posted an update, but we’ve been busy working on some seriously cool features here at GetSiteControl. These new features will help you create unique professionally looking widgets which will match your specific needs.

Customize the colors

If you are already familiar with GetSiteControl widgets you know that until recently you could only configure widget colors with the help of the automatic color matching tool. It means that you choose one base color and we match the rest of the colors, such as button and text colors, automatically. And this method works quite well as far as we can see. However, we have received requests from people who wanted more freedom in terms of colors. So now you have it! In the newly added Advanced color customization section you can now choose separate custom colors for all widget elements: buttons, headers, texts and background. You can create unique widgets that will perfectly match your corporate colors and your website design.

Feature overview: Responsive mobile widgets

Posted by Ksenia Borisova on October 14th, 2014

Is your website optimized for mobile devices? If yes, please read on, as we will talk of how GetSiteControl widgets behave on mobile. And if no, why not? Responsive web design seems to have become a necessity because of the huge growth in mobile traffic. More and more people every day choose to browse the Internet from their smartphones and tablets instead of their PCs, we all do so many things on the go these days. Still mobile users aren’t converting at the same rate as desktop users, and the obvious reason for that is poor mobile user experience. You are very unlikely to order, buy or subscribe if you can’t click the right link because the site is not mobile friendly.

And what if your site is responsive, but you are in need of third-party tools, such as opt-in forms, surveys, contact form or social buttons. These should be responsive too, right? No problem! If you are using GetSiteControl on a responsive website your widgets will become responsive too.

What's new: Cool animations, new widget layout and more

Posted by Ksenia Borisova on September 22nd, 2014

The recently released Survey widget was not the only feature we have been working on here at GetSiteControl. There’s so much new stuff that it just did not fit into the previous post. So, today we’d like to tell you what other new features we have prepared for you.

New Slide-out layout

OK, so this name might not be final, but the layout itself is here to stay, because it can be useful for so many things. When you go to create your next widget or edit an existing one check out the two new layouts you can now choose for your widgets. They are neat forms sitting either in the bottom right or bottom left corner of the page. They are quite eye-catching but not as obtrusive as a central pop-up window might be. Your website visitors are sure to notice them, but a widget like this will not prevent them from browsing around your website. Yet they will still see your message.

What’s new: Get to know your customers with the Survey widget

Posted by Ksenia Borisova on September 16th, 2014

GetSiteControl widget set has just had a super useful addition - the new Survey widget. You can now easily conduct surveys on your website to learn what your website visitors think about your site, products or services, to better understand what they need or what difficulties they have. Knowing what your clients truly want is vital for success of any company, and there is no better way to know what someone wants than to ask them. That’s why we have decided to add surveys to GetSiteControl widget kit.

Posted by Ksenia Borisova on August 13th, 2014

We listen carefully to all the feedback you send to us and implement the best ideas. So today we are here to share some really cool new features we have just added.

MailChimp integration

GetSiteControl is now friends with MailChimp allowing you to sync your accounts. If you are using MailChimp to send your newsletters, just connect the two accounts and the email addresses you collect with the Subscribe widget will automatically be exported to the mailing list of your choosing.
