Peerlist Monthly Update: April 2022

As Peerlist grows, our overall activities in a month are also increasing. So instead of just writing a changelog, we decided to share monthly comprehensive updates about Peerlist as a community!

Let's start with some significant product development.

🀝 Announcing Gumroad Integration

gumroad-integration-peerlist

One of the most requested integrations by our users, who are indie creators, is Gumroad. This integration will enable these creators to showcase their digital products and services on their work profiles and reach a target audience.

Check Gumroad integration in action on none other than Shruti Balasa's Peerlist profile.


πŸ”₯ Advancements to Peerlist Scroll

Content feed is one of the biggest problems of existing professional networking platforms. There is a lot of noise than signal due to irrelevant content getting shared.

We are applying some out-of-the-box thinking to Scroll. To keep the content professional and relatable to the professional context of Peerlist, we are bringing four types of templated posts (opportunities, books, URLs, and events) that you can share with the Peerlist community.

Apart from this, from now on, you will be able to better interact with people by mentioning them in posts, comments, and replies. It is another step toward networking! 😊

✍️ Hashnode now powers Peerlist blog

Peerlist blog is now powered by Hashnode

Hashnode recently launched Hashnode for Teams. We just grabbed the opportunity to host our company blog there. As a small team, we wanted something plug-n-play for our blog and Hashnode suits our needs at the moment!

Soon we will be inviting guest authors to contribute to our blog. Get in touch with us if you want to write something which will add value to Peerlist members!
