    PLANOLY 2020 Year in Review - Feature Image

    At first, the thought of looking back on a year that feels more like five years wrapped into one felt like such a daunting task. But once we poured a cup of coffee, put on the new(est) Taylor Swift album, and started diving into the archives, we found ourselves overwhelmed with gratitude for our community of PLANOLY users. Completely in awe of how much we’ve accomplished together in 2020. 

    From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for being part of the PLANOLY family and for continuing to inspire us to design new products that simplify social marketing for entrepreneurs, creators, and brands.

    If we could take away one learning from 2020 it is that ultimately, we're better together. From virtual events to product launches, our most celebrated accomplishments this year couldn’t have happened without involvement from our community. And while we spent a ton of time laughing at the funniest memes and figuring out the best times to post our content, it all comes back to you - our community. 

    So let’s take a little stroll down memory lane, shall we?

    PLANOLY 2020 Highlights

    Here’s a little more about a few of the highlights we mentioned above.

    Designing Change: Local Love Grant 

    Although PLANOLY is a global brand with team members throughout the US, Austin is the city we call home. To help relieve financial hardships at the onset of COVID-19, we awarded a $10K Local Love Grant to two Austin-based small businesses: The Paper + Craft Pantry and Brooklyn Breakfast Shop.

    PLANOLY Presents: A Digital Event Series 

    In April, we hosted our first, free digital event series to empower the PLANOLY community during a time of profound change. From conversations to mini-workshops, these events featured exclusive insights from world-renowned founders and creators. Be on the lookout this January for a new series aimed at bringing out the inner-creative in any business owner!

    Launched sellit to help turn your followers into customers

    Times of crisis have always led to innovation, and nowhere is that more clear than on social media. We accelerated the launch of our newest tool, sellit, making it easier for you to connect with your social media followers and sell them the products and services they’ve come to love.

    Upgraded your Instagram Bio with linkit

    We asked you to re-think your Instagram Bio by launching linkit - a free tool for all PLANOLY users that allows you to create a clickable gallery of a selection of your Instagram posts. Use it to increase traffic to wherever you want it most - like your website, product pages, and blog posts. 

    Introduced Pin Planner Campaigns 

    In addition to planning and scheduling, PLANOLY’s Pin Planner now includes a ‘Campaigns’ feature to help you grow your audience and increase engagement. Create 'Campaigns' to keep your boards fresh and active with engaging Pins. 

    We genuinely appreciate you being a part of our community of readers, subscribers, and planners. From our family to yours, have a Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year.
