#Update — Kick Off 2018 On The Right Foot With Your New Instagram Grid Preview

Happy New Year!

The Loomly Team wishes you all the best for 2018: success at work, good times with your loved ones, and a strong health to enjoy it all!

2018 is going to be an important year for Loomly, full of improvements and surprises, which we hope you will all enjoy.

Kicking things off on the right foot, we are happy to bring you a brand-new feature today: the Instagram Grid Preview.

As you may guess from its name, this update allows you to preview your Instagram posts in grid format, i.e. in the context of your other Instagram posts:

Kick Off 2018 On The Right Foot With Your New Instagram Grid Preview Screenshot

By default, the post you are previewing will appear at the top left of your grid, as the last published post on your Instagram account.

By toggling the SHOW FUTURE LOOMLY POSTS switch, you can also preview a post taking into consideration your upcoming posts already scheduled with Loomly:

The Instagram Grid Preview is available from the Post View, for all Loomly users, in all calendars linked to an Instagram account.

As always, this is a feature inspired by your immensely useful feedback and we hope it will live up to your expectations.

Thank you so much for your incredible support in 2017: we are proud to keep building — and improving — Loomly for you in 2018.

Manage All Your Media Assets Inside Your Brand-New Content Library

#Update — Manage All Your Assets Inside Your Brand-New Content Library

We’ve been a little more quiet than usual lately, as we have been working on some big surprises for you all, the first of which is this major update, bringing a brand-new Content Library to your favorite social media tool.

You can access your Content Library from both the List View & the Calendar View via the Library icon in your Toolbar.

Loomly Content Library Icon

Inside your Content Library, you can:

  • Upload photos & videos to be used later when creating new posts.
  • Edit new and existing files metadata, for instance renaming assets per your internal conventions.
  • Delete assets you no longer need.
  • Apply changes to multiple files with bulk actions.

Of course, you can select any file — and even multiple files — in your Content Library and create a post from there:

Content Library Build Post From Media

Conversely, you can access your Content Library from Post Builder and simply select a file — or multiple files — on the fly when creating a new post:

Oh, and one more thing: all the files you have ever used in all of your Loomly posts since Day 1 have automatically been saved into your Content Library, ready to use again.

This brand-new Content Library is already available to all Loomly users: check it out now!

Once again, this feature was inspired by your amazing feedback and developed thanks to your outstanding support: thank you so much to you all.

We are immensely grateful to be able to build Loomly for you every day and we are happy to report that we have some pretty sweet surprises coming your way real soon: stay tuned.

Publish Tweets With 280 Characters & YouTube Twitter Cards

#Update — Publish Tweets With 280 Characters & YouTube Twitter Cards

On Tuesday, Twitter officially rolled out the 280-character limit to all users: as of today, you can publish tweets with 280 characters via Loomly as well.

Besides this increased character limit, your post creation process remains exactly the same in Post Builder:

  • If you want to publish a post to multiple channels, including Twitter, define generic content first.
  • Fine-tune your content for each channel, making sure that your Twitter copy is 280-character long (or less).
  • Links & media respectively count as 23 characters and 0 characters against this limit.
  • As announced yesterday, you can include images up to 5MB and videos up to 200MB and 5 minutes in your tweets.

One little thing we have improved along the way is post preview for tweets including a YouTube video, which now show up in Loomly (and, of course, get published to Twitter) with a video Twitter card:

Publish Tweets With 280 Characters & YouTube Twitter Cards Post Preview

That’s it for today — a quick update letting you publish 280-character tweets and the ability to include YouTube Twitter Cards in your posts — until we bring something much bigger to you in the upcoming weeks: stay tuned!

As always, thank you so much for your support: you are the best users we could dream of.

Upload Larger Media Assets To Your Posts

#Update — Upload Larger Media Assets To Your Posts

Loomly now allows you to upload larger media assets to your posts from Post Builder:

  • Up to 10MB for photos on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ & LinkedIn — and 5MB on Twitter.
  • Up to 200MB and 5 minutes for videos (although we do recommend videos less than 30MB and shorter than 2 minutes for an optimal experience).

Upload Larger Media Assets To Your Posts From Post Builder In Loomly

This update is already available to all Loomly users: login and create a new post now.

Along with faster upload and GIF to MP4 conversion, the increased limits above are in fact the tip of the iceberg…

We have been working on a brand-new architecture, which is the foundation for two two very nice new media-related features, coming by the end of the year.

We can’t wait to share these exciting updates with you: stay tuned!

As always, thank you so much for your incredible feedback and your continuous help: it’s an honor for our team to get up every morning and build Loomly for such an amazing community of users.

You are truly the best.

Publish Animated GIFs to Facebook & Instagram

#Update — Publish Animated GIFs to Facebook & Instagram

Sometimes, a seemingly small feature can make a surprisingly big difference… that’s the kind of update we tend to think we are announcing today: Loomly now allows you to publish animated GIFs to Facebook & Instagram.

So far, you were able to upload animated GIF files to Loomly but these were not accepted by the Facebook (Page) & Instagram APIs: you could either publish these “as is” and they would end up as non-animated on your social accounts, or upload MP4 files instead, specifically for these two platforms, which also implied some kind of manual conversion on your end.

Now, Loomly will do the heavy lifting for you: just upload an animated GIF to Post Builder and, if you selected either Facebook or Instagram as channels for your post, then your file will automatically get converted to MP4, and get published as a video.

Publish Animated GIFs to Facebook & Instagram With Loomly Post Builder Demo

Note: on all other channels, namely Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ & LinkedIn, your original animated GIF file will get published as expected.

Then, you may ask: what about the famous 3-second minimum duration for videos on Instagram?

Well, if the MP4 video resulting from the conversion of your animated GIF is shorter than that threshold, then Loomly will automatically loop it for you until the 3-second requirement is met.

In other words: you can now focus on finding awesome animated GIFs your audience will love, and Loomly will take care of the rest for you.

As always, this is a feature inspired by your feedback: thank you so much for your amazing support and your incredible enthusiasm.

(A lot) more is coming: stay tuned!

Today, we are introducing not one, not two, but three new features in Loomly… and something tells us you should enjoy these new features! Read on.

Loom.ly URL Shortener

Until now, if you wanted to include a nicely formatted link in a post, you had to use a third-party tool to shorten it and then paste it in Loomly: these days are over! Post Builder now provides you with a built-in URL shortener that converts any link you input into a beautiful, short loom.ly link.

Loomly-Three-New-Features-URL-Shortener

Mobile Post Builder

The Loomly mobile apps (iOS & Android), launched last month, are already getting their own significant update: Mobile Post Builder now allows you to create & edit posts on the go, from your smartphone. It’s the Loomly experience you all know and like — including Post Ideas, Generic + Fine-Tuning Content & Post Optimization — right in the palm of your hand.

Loomly Three New Features Mobile Post Builder

Important Note: make sure to download the latest version of Loomly from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store to get access to Mobile Post Builder.

Post Labels

Last but not least, a simple yet super useful feature inspired by you: Post Labels let you tag posts in Post Builder and identify at a glance throughout Loomly what campaign or category they belong to. For instance, you can create labels for specific campaigns or types of posts, such as blog posts, sponsored posts, product posts, etc. Of course, you can also filter posts by labels in the List View & Calendar View.

Loomly Three New Features Post Labels

Login to Loomly and check out these three new features now!

Oh, and we have two pretty major updates coming up in the next few weeks: the version 2.0 of an existing feature, and a surprise, brand-new feature we have been cooking for a while now that will take your Loomly experience to a new level. Stay tuned!

As always, a big thank you to all of you for your amazing feedback and your incredible enthusiasm: we are grateful every single day to be able to build Loomly for you.

Earn Money For Recommending Loomly With Your New Referral Program

#Loomly — Earn Money For Recommending Loomly With Your New Referral Program

Many of you are already spreading some incredible love about Loomly around them and all over the web: while we cannot thank you enough for your support, our brand-new Referral Program now provides you with a platform & rewards for doing exactly that!

How does Loomly’s Referral Program work?

When you join Loomly’s Referral Program, we provide you with a custom referral link, which you can share over email, on social media, on your blog or website, in forums and even offline.

Loomly Referral Program Landing Page

Your custom referral link leads to a personalized landing page including a warm welcome message and your profile picture: every single time someone signs up and then subscribes to Loomly from your link, you earn 10% of the amount of their subscription.

How much can you actually earn?

As mentioned above, it’s real simple: you earn 10% of every subscription you generate, as long as it lasts.

That’s it, there is no minimum or maximum reward amount: your rewards scale perfectly with your efforts.

The amount of your reward depends on three variables:

  • The number of subscribers you refer.
  • The plan they choose when they subscribe.
  • The length of their subscription.

We have put together a simple calculator to help you understand how this all works and how much you can make:

Loomly Referral Program Rewards Calculator

Your rewards are deposited directly to your bank account on the 15th of every month for the prior month’s earnings.

What limitations apply?

Okay, that’s the least fun part, and we legally have to go through it: so, let’s be quick!

This Referral Program is exclusively meant to reward you for promoting Loomly to new prospective customers and as such, is NOT a way to generate commissions from subscriptions you would have purchased otherwise, either directly for yourselves or on behalf of collaborators, including but not limited to clients, vendors, partners, affiliates, representatives, employers and employees.

Per our Referral Program Agreement, that means:

  1. You cannot earn rewards by subscribing to Loomly from your own referral link.
  2. You cannot join a calendar created by a user who signed up from your referral link.
  3. You cannot transfer ownership of a calendar to, or receive ownership of a calendar from, a user who signed up from your referral link.

That’s it for the lawyerey word of caution: on to the next step, getting ready for action!

How can I join the program?

You don’t have to be a Loomly user to join Loomly’s Referral Program: all you need to do is fill out this form.

Note: if you are a Loomly user, make sure you are logged in when you fill out the above mentioned form — you will save plenty of time.

Loomly Referral Program Referral Profile

You will then access your Referral Profile, including:

  • Your custom referral link.
  • A special tool letting you send your referral link over email, leading to your customized landing page.
  • Best practices & tips to maximize your rewards.
  • Your rewards summary.

Are you ready to join Loomly’s Referral Program?

Let’s spread some love about Loomly: start earning now.

More than ever, thank you so much for your amazing support: you are the absolute best community we can dream of and we are happy to get up every morning to keep building Loomly for you.
