Behind the scenes at Crowny
Preparing for the release of our platform has been an intensive process so far. From tying up loose ends in our software to iterating the platform based on partner feedback. We're honoured to be working with our release partners to bring Crowny to market, and can’t wait to finally make it official.
As we put the finishing touches on our platform, we're excited to share an exclusive sneak peek of the platform with you all. We demonstrated how basic modal previews are now a hint of the past, and how Crowny’s mobile campaign preview allows marketers to experience the look and feel of their content before publishing it.

Shedding light on our potential
One of the most exciting things about Crowny's platform is its incredible potential for adoption across a wide range of industries and use cases. With so many different perspectives and ways of applying the software, the possibilities are virtually endless. With our blog posts, we attempt to make the potential somewhat digestible. By shedding light on these different use cases, we hope to inspire others to see the many ways that Crowny's platform can help their business succeed. Here are the perspectives we analyzed this month.
Community marketing potential
We emphasized the importance of incentivizing community members to engage with a business's content. By using Crowny's content-driven rewards program solutions, businesses can reward their most active community members. With this method, businesses increase engagement and loyalty, thereby unlocking the full potential of community marketing.

Opt-in & zero-party data
This month, we also explored the benefits of using Crowny's opt-in consent approach, which allows users to control how their data is used. This approach can help businesses comply with data privacy regulations while also building trust with their customers. By allowing users to provide data following their own preferences, businesses are guaranteed to collect accurate data and provide relevant content in return. This approach will significantly improve the performance of content campaigns, allowing businesses to thrive with opt-consent in the age of zero-party data.

Incentivizing users to complete specific actions encourages more active participation from community members, thus increasing user engagement.

We're thrilled to see excitement building within our community as we share more and more insights about our platform. It's incredibly motivating to see that our vision is resonating with people, and we're continually blown away by the creativity and passion of our community members. One standout example of this is Friso, who recently created a mockup of the Crowny app store preview. It's inspiring to see how Friso imagines every app store looking like when Crowny takes over the industry. We're grateful to have such dedicated community members who are willing to put in the time and effort to help bring our vision to life.

Over the course of this month, we ran several polls on Twitter to gauge community opinions on various topics. By asking our community for their opinions, we hope to gain a better understanding of what matters most to them and how we can improve our platform to better meet their needs. We'll be sharing some of the results of those polls.
