Spot.IM incentivizes your users to create engaging User Generated Content through a beautiful, instantaneous chat UI. The best of those contributions are then exposed in the context of your professional content in the live, personalized Spot.IM Newsfeed. By implementing real-time social capabilities, Spot.IM creates on your site a content-circulating ecosystem. We keep the conversation about your content flowing, increasing on-site user engagement and loyalty, driving bounce rates down, and pageviews up.
You can’t surrender your conversations to social networks and aggregators. For your brand to remain relevant in today’s Internet, you need to be able to create meaningful communities around your own content, on your own site. Spot.IM gives you every tool you need to accomplish this and leap into the new generation of online publishing.
Live Commenting, Actionable Notifications
User engagement becomes truly in-the-moment with Spot.IM. We combine the familiar interface of a commenting section with the real-time capabilities of social networks and instant messengers. Typing users and submitted comments are seen instantaneously. Actionable, sticky notifications alert your users immediately to replies on their comments and other trending conversations across your site.
The Spot.IM Newsfeed enables websites to expose their content to their users in the most efficient way possible. The above-the-fold Newsfeed sorts and highlights the first 140 characters of each of your article’s most fantastic user Reply, and displays that Reply in the context of the article. Being able to see what other users have to say is increasingly vital information for users when deciding whether your content is relevant and worth reading.
The Spot.IM Newsfeed automatically prioritizes both your professional and user-generated content uniquely for each of your site’s visitors. It’s about getting the right content to the right reader.
Group and Private Messaging
Your users see other online visitors and engage them in a free-flowing dialogue in either group or direct message.
Spot.IM on your site is automatically optimized for all mobile platforms, ensuring that your users get just as much out of your site when they’re on the go as when they’re at home.
Moderation can be time-consuming, and even expensive. Spot.IM provides you with an unprecedented degree of automation, ease, and control to take the hard work out of monitoring your site.
Spot.IM combines a host of features that keep your users engaged with your content and one another at all times. Rewards for posting, liking, and sharing incentivize your site’s visitors to keep creating and interacting with content. Users can also directly tag one another in real time with a simple ‘@’. And of course, it goes without saying that all types of media are supported for sharing.
