WHAT ARE UPDATES?

Updates lets you talk to your customers directly: share news, pictures, or clips as your project progresses. Creating a new Update will auto-email all of your subscribers, so they'll all know what’s up. Updates are also a mini-blog that can attract new followers -- anyone can read your news on your VHX site and subscribe. And comment! Is your project crowd-funded? Backers have already played a critical part in your project via Kickstarter or Indiegogo. Return the love by continuing to keep them updated on current and future projects! 


WHAT CAN I DO WITH UPDATES?

  1. Email your audience. Send custom emails to your followers right from the VHX Admin. 
  2. Run a blog for your audience. Each Update sent, also creates a public blog post on your own VHX site blog. Followers can comment on and share these posts. 


WHAT SHOULD I SHARE?

Some suggestions:

  • Behind-the-scenes info
  • Photos/videos of the cast
  • Upcoming events
  • Screenings 
  • Progress on releasing the film
  • Next projects
  • Outtakes
  • Extra fitness moves
  • Additional TMI moments
