Introducing the New WebKite Dashboard

One thing we’ve been working on at WebKite HQ is an updated admin dashboard. Why? Well, we’re always making tweaks to improve your experience with the WebKite platform.

A saying that comes to mind is “if you’re not growing you’re dying.” While a bit morbid, it’s definitely a mantra any startup should keep in mind. That’s sort of the theme for this evolution of the dashboard. We gathered all our user feedback—good and bad—to build a more intuitive on-boarding experience as well as change the layout of the backend.

Here’s a few screenshots of the new look:

Slick, right? We’re making it a bit more streamlined so users can easily access the areas they interact with the most. Plus, we have a new on-boarding flow to make Kite creation a tad easier.

For comparison’s sake, here’s the old dashboard.

While it’s mostly the same content, the new dashboard presents options in a more organized manner and with a lot of the text removed. The result is a clean dashboard that you just can’t wait to check out. Go ahead, click on the images above to simulate the new experience. Isn’t that a great feeling?

We’re very hyped up to be rolling this out to customers starting Monday, November 25th.

Wondering why we put the tabs on the left? Removed text? Organized everything the way we did? Those are all great questions that I can’t answer. Which is why Holly, our Senior User Experience Lead, is working on a blog post to answer those questions as we speak.

Keep scrolling for a few more screenshots of the new dashboard.

Inventory-based advertising is a better way to advertise

Since we're generating specific ads based on a business' inventory, ads are only shown to customers that are ready to buy those products.

This mitigates waste and ensures that you only get clicks that have a better chance of leading to a sale. Inventory-based ads help you skip past the bartering and get right to the sale. Meaning you can spend less time maintaining ads and more time taking care of your business.
