Introducing Stories You Liked
We launched Likes on Vocal in November 2019 to allow your readers the ability to show their appreciation for your stories. Since then we’ve seen an incredible amount of community engagement through likes, which has helped creators understand what stories resonate with their audience while assisting Vocal’s Curation Team surface and champion remarkable stories.
The single most requested and anticipated feature to date is finally here, and we couldn’t be more excited. We’ve been working to determine the best way to help your fans follow along with your stories and keep up to date with their favorite creators.
Introducing Quick Edit
About a month ago, I reflected on how far Vocal has come, owing in large part to the feedback that we’ve received from you, our creator community. From the introduction of Creator Bonuses, to a major site redesign and the Vocal Ambassador Program, we couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve built thanks to you. And we’re just as excited about what’s in store for the Vocal community as we continue to provide you with the tools that you need to create better stories.
An Update on Updates: Vocal’s Upcoming Features
Two years ago, in May of 2019, we introduced Founding Memberships to Vocal+, which asked our creators to be some of the first to test out Vocal+ membership. We’ve always relied on creator feedback to help us build new features and services to improve the Vocal community. And now, a year and a half since we launched recurring Vocal+ memberships, Vocal has grown significantly—we’re now home to over 1 million creators and their stories, and over 25,000 Vocal+ members.
Introducing Creator Bonuses on Vocal
Today we’re rolling out Vocal Creator Bonuses: a more direct way for the Vocal team to reward creators directly in their Wallet.
Introducing a New Look for Vocal
You may have noticed that things look a bit different around here. Over the last few months, we have been working on a new version of Vocal that sets a strong foundation for the features and goals we want to accomplish in 2021.
A Thank You to Our Community for 10,000 Vocal+ Members
For the last four years, we’ve worked on building a community that allows you to create, share, and earn from your stories. Since then, over 800,000 creators have joined the Vocal community and shared stories that have inspired millions of people around the world. Our constant mission—to provide the best storytelling tools and communities for creators and help them get rewarded—led us to introduce Vocal+ last year, helping you create better stories, connect with other creators, and maximize your earnings.
Story Partnerships on Vocal
As a user generated platform, Vocal is home to the stories of over 700,000 creators who are creative, authentic, and authorities in their spaces. Whether they are fitness instructors sharing their expertise or beauty gurus giving product recommendations, our creators have a ton of advice and experience to share with their audiences.
