Product Launch: The New Photo Album

It's no secret that you all have been going absolutely crazy -- uploading so many new photos!!

The website is so much more colorful and beautiful!

It's really fun surfing around and checking out all the, seriously, AMAZING photos all over the site!

Well, to keep up with you, the FanBox engineers have built a new photo album to help you show off all these great photos!


And now, they have just finished importing all your old photos into the new photo album...

... and the new photo album is live!
 

Power Users:  You get acess first.  Please enjoy it -- and report any issues to your Success Coach -- and they will submit a ticket to the engineers.

Everyone else: Please give the Power Users, Success Coaches and FanBox engineers a chance to work together to remove any bugs or issues for you.

      After they bless it, the new photo album will be open for you.  
            (My best guess: One week)

 

To access the new album, s
imply click any photo in the feed:

To return to the feed, click the X at the top right:
       Product Launch: The New Photo Album

From any photo, click the photo album name to access the album:
      Product Launch: The New Photo Album 


Of course you can always visit anyone's photos from their profile:
       Product Launch: The New Photo Album


Notice the 3 main sections at the top:

         Product Launch: The New Photo Album 

 

Rather than walk you through it all, I'll let you do it for yourself so you have more fun.

However, one item you don't want to miss:

When you roll over your photos with your mouse, you illuminate certain features -- such as the Highlight feature:
       Product Launch: The New Photo Album    
      

Click the Star (*) to highlight that photo:
       Product Launch: The New Photo Album    

Now, when your fans and friends visit your photos, that photo will be highlighted (enlarged) for their viewing pleasure.

Also notice the little pencil icon. Click it to illuminate more features:
        Product Launch: The New Photo Album 

By changing the date of any photo, you can change the order of photos in your album.


Please play with all the features -- and let us know what you think.

As you can see, photos are continuing to become a growing part of the FanBox experience.

Introducing the FanBox mobile app for iPhone

OK, so I was wondering how long it would take for some of you clever people to figure out that the FanBox mobile app (for iPhones) has been launched in the Apple iTunes store.


Well, it appears that a few of you have already figured it out!

(I was waiting for the Android app to also be ready, before announcing it -- so that we would have a level playing field between Apple and Android users) ;)

Well, one of those clever people is Senator Anna P.

Check out her earnings:
               Introducing the FanBox mobile app for iPhone 

As you can see, the algorithms are giving these photos (taken with the mobile app) hyper-freshness earnings credit...

... since the freshness of those photos are guaranteed. 


Yes, it is true:

Organic photos -- taken with the FanBox mobile apps -- earn significantly more than all other photos...

... because the app can guarantee their freshness.


A few notes about the mobile app:

Version 1 is hyper-focused on only one thing:

Your photo earnings


The purpose of this app is to give you a way to take photos...

.... and have them instantly appear in the homepage feeds of your friends and fans...

... so that ZERO time is wasted between the time you take the photo, and when it is spreading out to your fans, their fans, fans of your fans of your fans, and so on and so forth.


Remember, for earnings, it's all about freshness. 

(Learn why freshness matters so much for your photo earnings, and why you want your photos getting shared as quickly as possible).

Hint: You actually earn more from people that are NOT your fans, than people that ARE your fans.

Just notice how many people in this illustration are connected to you directly, versus those that are connected to you indirectly:
 Introducing the FanBox mobile app for iPhone

As you can see, most people that view your QUALITY photos are NOT connected to you directly.

     ----> You actually earn MORE from people that are NOT your fans yet! <----

So to maximize your earnings, you want to post QUALITY photos, so that your fans spread them far and wide, and so that their fans do the same.

And now, with the new iPhone app, you can do that very quickly, and even earn significantly more than you earn with your other photos.

 

Warning:

When you take a photo, it is published instantly!

To "pull it back", you need to delete the related feed story, by visiting your profile on the Web.

You can also permanently delete the photo from your FanBox photo abum on the Web.

Future versions will allow you to do all of that from your phone, of course.

(Instead of making you wait for the entire mobile app -- which will include virtually everything on the FanBox web site...

... the engineers wanted to get this to you now -- so you can start earning with it immediately...

... while they continue to build out the rest of the mobile apps).


My suggestion:

If you were thinking about getting an iPhone, this is the perfect excuse to do that. As you can see, earnings from the app may pay for the phone in a matter of days.

       (The Android app is also coming soon, I promise.)

If you already have an iPhone, don't miss an opportunity to take a photo with it, every time you're hanging out with friends and family, or notice something beautiful.

In the back of your mind, always be looking for the beauty in things; the beauty in relationships; and the beauty in moments.

The more you look for beauty, the easier it will become to find it -- eventually without even thinking about it:

They say the mind can only hold one thought at a time: Positive, or negative.

The more you use your mind's muscle for either of those two, the stronger that part gets (and the weaker the other part gets).

So, even if for no other reason but to increase your earnings, start fine-tuning your brain to look for positive, even as you go about your day, your work and your life.


My challenge for you:

It takes 21 days to build a habit. 

I challenge you to take at least one photo every day, for 21 days...

... always looking out for the beauty in things, people, situtations and moments -- so that you can capture that fantastic photo that your fans will love.

If you do that every day, for 21 days, you will have built a habit.

Your brain and eye will automatically notice beauty -- even when it's only in your peripheral vision.

Also, if you do this for 21 days, your ability to notice (or care about) negative people and situations will be dramatically reduced. (That part of your brain will atrophy and be on the decline).

And because you always attract people and situations into your life that harmonize with your dominant thoughts...

... you will start meeting new people and experience new events that will create even more positive momentum in all areas of your life.


Anyone up for the challenge?

We're talking only 21 days.

After that, if you notice a sizeable increase in the amount of positivity in your life, and you like that, you might set a new goal and keep it going.

But if you find that all that positivity is just too much for you, by all means you'll want to stop this experiment and remove the app from your phone immediately!  ;)

 

Ready to try the mobile app?

Visit the Apple iTunes app store from your iPhone, to download the free app.

(By the way, there seems to be another app in there with the name "FanBox"... that has nothing to do with our community, so just make sure you download the right one!)

It's a very simple app, so the best way to learn it, is to just use it and play with it.

You earn more with photos taken with the app, so long as they were taken fresh.  

(By the way, the app also let's your upload photos to the site from your photo storage on the phone -- photos that you took previously...

... but keep in mind that those get the same credit as photos uploaded on the site.  Only the fresh ones you take that are instantly and automatically uploaded to the site get the earnings multiplier).


Android users:
 Your app is almost ready. My current best guess is that it will be yours by the end of next week.

Congrats Anna P and others that have already figured it out!

 

Any questions? I'm here for you.

Which readers help you earn the most?

As you may know, the new simplified earning algorithms have been launched…

… allowing all FanBoxers to simply earn when people view their blog posts, photos and, soon, videos in their homepage feeds.

 

Question:

Which people in the community help you earn the most when they read (view) your posts in their homepage feed?

 

Answer:

The higher level Power Users

 

Let's discuss.

When a Basic Power User views your post in their feed, you earn approximately 12 times what you would from a non-Power User viewing that same post.

 

Does that make sense?

Basic Power Users are simply worth a lot more to your earnings than non-Power Users.

Why?

Because Basic Power Users bring tremendous value to the community and the attainment of its mission.

        (Read how Power Users are enabling the achievement of the mission)

 

What if a Yellow Power User views your post?

How much more are they helping your earnings?

  

And what about an Orange Power User?

And Green?

 

What about Blue?

And Purple?

And Red?

 

How much does each Power User level contribute to your earnings, relative to the other Power Levels?

To answer those questions, simply compare the size of the Earnings Potential bar, for each Power User level.

(I have taken the following images from the “Get More Power” page):
 Which readers help you earn the most? 

  

So, a Basic reader is worth 12 times as much as a non-Power User reader (to your direct earnings).

And as you can see, a Yellow reader is worth 4 times a Basic reader.

An Orange reader is worth twice as much as a Yellow reader.

A Green reader is worth twice as much as an Orange reader.

A Blue reader is worth two and a half times as much as a Green reader.

A Purple reader is worth twice as much as a Blue reader.

And a Red reader is worth a full 50% more than a Purple reader.

  

By the way: The “Earning Potential” bar always shows 100% full for the top available Power Level – and all other levels show as a % of the top level.

In the future, as more Power Levels are released, the top level will show as 100%, with Red and other colors showing as a % of that top level.

That does NOT mean that Red’s Earning Potential has been reduced.

It just means that a higher level has been released with even more potential.

Again, when new levels are released (which happens automatically when there is demand for them) the earnings potential of the lower levels is NOT reduced.

Their bar is just shown as a percentage of the top level.

 

 

As you can see, you want Power Users to be your fans.

And you REALLY want the top Power Users to be your fans.

 

So, what’s the best way to get Power User fans?

        Become their fan! 

When you do that, they’ll be presented with the opportunity to fan you back.

 

Should you send them (unwanted) emails?

If you really want your account to be deleted, that’s the way to go.

Why?

  

Here’s why you do NOT want to spam Power Users:

All users can click "Report Spam" on your email:
         Which readers help you earn the most?
When any FanBoxer clicks “Report Spam”, the email is forwarded to FanBox Customer Care for review.

If Customer Care finds that the email was spam, the spammer’s account is deleted without warning.

 

Question:

Guess whose spam reports are prioritized (brought) to the top of the Customer Care queue – to be reviewed first?

Answer:

Power Users – sorted by higher levels first, of course.

New users: 

I think by now you’re starting to get the sense that this community is totally serious about honoring Power Users in the interest of the successful accomplishment of our mission.

(Want to understand the spirit behind many of the decisions being made? Read about our mission here)

 

So, you DON’T want to spam Power Users (or spam anyone, for that matter).

But to maximize your earnings, you do want Power Users to view your posts.

Again, the best way to do that is to become a fan of a Power User every time you see one that you’re not already a fan of.

 

Lastly, remember that you don’t just want fans, you want LOYAL fans.

Why?

1.  Because loyal fans are the ones where you appear in their Top Stories.       

(Read why appearing in Top Stories matters so much to your earnings)

2.  Your loyal fans are the ones that will spread your posts far and wide.

(Read how it is that you actually generate MOST of your earnings from people that are NOT your fans)

  

So be sure to treat the Power Users with the most respect, love and care. 

You really want them on your side.

And if you haven’t noticed already, FanBox Power Users are humble, down-to-earth and always ready to give advice and offer anyone and everyone a helping hand.

 

Summary:

FanBoxers with the most loyal Power User fans earn the most
