The latest and the best mobile website should be accessible to every publisher! This is the prime purpose of Sortd. To accomplish this goal, we keep on upgrading Sortd with all the advanced features so that you enjoy the finest technological solutions to enhance user experience, website performance, monetise mobile traffic and elevate ad revenue.
To help publishers get all these benefits, we are integrating some next-gen features in the Sortd 2.1 version. This will give publishers a competitive advantage and help them establish as a brand in the digitally driven era of business.
So, what is special about this new update? Or what new features you can enjoy with Sortd 2.1. Let’s cover them all one by one!
1. Paid Articles
In the latest version, Sortd is coming up with a stunning feature of paid articles. This will enable publishers to get their readers pay for the premium articles. Users can purchase individual articles to access the full article. It will generate extra revenue for publishers and help them monetise their premium content efficiently.
Publishers need to provide their Razorpay credentials in Sortd to facilitate the payment process. Sortd is only providing the platform, and there will be no revenue share or fee for this particular service.
To activate this feature, publishers need to go to pubconsole, and from there they can enable this functionality. All the functionalities need to be enabled individually which include paid article, donation widget, and auto notification.
For better clarity, see the below illustration:
2. Donation Widget
A donation widget is a great way to collect donations from website visitors. Publishers can integrate this widget via Sortd. All they have to do is provide their Razorpay credentials in Sortd to activate the transaction facility. Sortd is only providing the platform, and there will be no revenue share or fee for this particular service.
The widget will offer multiple payment options to users, such as credit cards, debit cards, net banking, and UPI. The donation widget will create a direct link between a user and publisher, facilitating the overall donation process.
This will unlock a new revenue stream for publishers and uplift the small or medium-sized media houses that often struggle with funds.
3. Auto Notifications
The Sortd framework uses Artificial Intelligence to pick all the trending articles and send auto notifications. This can save the publishers’ time as they no longer have to select the trending news and send it manually. However, publishers still need to send their manual notifications as this functionality only covers trending articles. Auto notifications will be sent on an hourly basis.
With auto notifications, you can increase user retention and stimulate engagement. Auto notification is a great way to keep your users actively informed and engaged. The timely sent alerts can also significantly improve conversion rates.
4. Categories hierarchy
Through this advanced functionality, we support multiple levels, whereas the earlier version of Sortd only supported up to two levels. To sync the child categories, the users first have to sync the parent category. For example, if you want to sync Gurgaon, you must sync Haryana first.
Once the parent category is synced, the user can sync the child category too. You can always re-order the categories, but it is only possible in the same level or category. For example, Bhopal and Haryana can be shuffled, but none of them can be interchanged with India, which represents a parent category.
5. WordPress MakeStories Integration
We have integrated the MakeStories plugin with Sortd, which will allow publishers to create and publish their own web stories. A web story is a great way to capture users’ attention via vivid visuals and captivating videos.
Also, web stories load almost instantly, attracting more readers. This is an easy-to-consume content format, and we have made it ‘Easy to Create’ for you. Utilise the potential of web stories to expand your reach and boost revenue.
The latest version of Sortd will allow you to redesign your mobile website smartly, aesthetically, and functionally. You will be able to get a high-performance mobile website with minimal effort. The best part is that you don’t even need any technical expertise for it because we have kept the entire setup process quite simple.
We are so excited for the latest version launch and hear from you all about your experience with Sortd. Get in touch with us today to start your new journey of digital success!
