Celebrating 20,000 Vocal+ Member Milestone
There are moments in our business, in every business, when the company hits a new stride, a tipping point that can feel akin to the g-force felt when you hit the accelerator in a fast car.
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.
Celebrating One Year of Challenges
When we launched Challenges one year ago today, we could never have anticipated the milestones we’d reach. What started off as a new way to encourage creativity and reward creators to think outside the box and participate in competitions across topics and interests, quickly evolved into so much more—thanks to you.
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.
Vocal Has Joined Stripe’s Climate Initiative
At Vocal, we’re all about supporting initiatives that make a difference. We do our best to use the platform we have to speak up for change, and to put our money where our mouth is; we support causes we believe in, we incorporate donations into as many Challenge prizes we can, and now we’re excited to announce our most recent effort: Joining Stripe Climate, which allows us to automatically donate a portion of our revenues to efforts to helping the environment.
A New Way to Manage Your Vocal+ Subscription
The introduction of Vocal+ has been, to date, the biggest update for Vocal since we launched the platform nearly four years ago. We first introduced it to you, our community, through Founding Memberships: one year subscriptions to Vocal+ for our first early adopters, who tested out the membership in exchange for their feedback to help us build a better subscription.
Today we’re excited to introduce Challenges, a new way for creators to get inspired and join the rest of the Vocal community in some friendly competition. Starting this week, creators will be able to participate in various Challenges across a range of topics and interests for the chance to win cash prizes, experiences, and much more.
Introducing Likes on Vocal
We’re always working to create tools that help reward and encourage you. That’s why we’re excited to introduce our newest update: Likes. Now, you can more easily support your fellow creators, and receive support yourself, through liking Vocal stories.
The Future of Vocal+
From building a home for your stories to fostering the growth of an entire creative community, we’ve been hard at work for the last three years helping you create, share, and earn from your stories. A few weeks ago we shipped Vocal 2.0, which along with the new features and updates, sets the stage for the future.
It’s hard to believe, but it’s been nearly 3 years since we released Vocal. We’ve since been joined by over 470,000 creators and their stories.
