Website Improvements

If you logged in this morning you probably noticed a bunch of great updates to the Nobex Partners Dashboard. Let’s have a look at some of them.

  • We improved the flow of building a new app, in particular adding a station to the database if your station didn’t turn up in the search. Also, a new build now returns you directly to the dashboard so you’re ready to customize things even more.
  • We’re introducing the new Alerts widget on the Dashboard home page to make sure you can see every important notice from our team. For example, if we review an app you’re submitting and are requesting changes, you’ll see them listed here.
  • We’ve streamlined the Push Service tab to make it easier to send messages the way you want.

Keep an eye on things over the next while, we’ve got even more great stuff coming! And please share your feedback! We’d love to know what you think.

Instagram Feeds/Tile Update

Remember when we announced that we were updating the process to add Facebook Feeds – oh right, that was just a few days ago! Well, we’re back to do it again, this time updating the Instagram feeds.

Starting today, all Nobex Partners stations and podcasters will be able to add their Instagram accounts in the Nobex Partners Dashboard. This will allow the Instagram tiles to begin to display again. Thanks everybody for your patience. This one has been a long time coming and we’re so excited to see it back!

Once you have updated your details your Instagram tiles will update reliably with your latest content.

Once you have updated your details your Facebook tiles will update reliably with your latest content and you will be able to extend access to Nobex Partners regularly meeting Facebook’s security guidelines.

Website Improvements

We made a few quick improvements to the Partner Dashboard

  • Home Page tiles: You can now display up to 60 unique Home Page tiles in your app. The App Setup Tab > Tile Settings is where you can customize all your awesome tiles!
  • Program Schedule: we’ve corrected an issue that was affecting updates made to the Program Schedule after it was made live. All updates should appear live in the app within 30 minutes of changing on the Dashboard.
  • Facebook Call to Action: this section was removed from the Promotion tab, since the feature has been discontinued by Facebook.

Update: Net Promoter Score

As another year draws to a close, we like to have a look at how things are going, and where we can improve. A big part of that is keeping track of our Net Promoter Score (NPS). If you’re not familiar with NPS, you can learn more about the concept here.

We survey users who have reached 6 months, 1 year, and 3 year milestones as partners with us, asking a simple question: How likely are you to recommend Nobex Partners to a friend or colleague?

Spread the Word

Here’s how things are shaping up this year:

6 months – 71% of respondents would recommend, 14% would not. Overall score of 57
1 year – 100% of respondents would recommend. Overall score of 100
3 years – 96% of respondents would recommend, 4% were neutral. Overall score of 96
This increase over time shows us that we are able to win over detractors by helping to guide them through the process of going live and providing the tools to help make their app a success.
Don’t forget your can share ideas with us whenever you want! And join us for a webinar to learn more about how to use the features on your Dashboard.

Upcoming changes to StreamLicensing/Oi2 Media Apps

We wanted to offer an update to stations using the Nobex-generated StreamLicensing/Oi2 Media apps. As of November 15, 2017, the agreement that covered the use of the Nobex app for StreamLicensing/Oi2 Media is no longer in effect.

We want to make sure our decision causes as little disruption to your station as possible, so if your station uses the StreamLicensing application you’ll have a few options:

  1. You can register for the Streamlicensing Legacy User plan with Nobex Partners ($25/month) and we will continue to maintain and support your version of the app.
  2. You can build a brand new mobile app with the Nobex Partners program.

Either way, you can continue to have an app for your station!

It is important to note that Nobex Partners doesn’t provide any assistance with content licensing. You will be responsible for ensuring that your station is properly licensed and managing payment of performance royalties.

Please feel free to contact our support team via the onsite message system. We’re happy to discuss with you.
