In January, consistent action yielded great results.

We’d promised ourselves to come out guns blazing this year. (Not that we actually went outside much).

This ranged from smaller “facelifts” such as color adaptation, to larger updates such as optimized map functionalities, redesigned displays (grid and list view) for artist stats, menu upgrades, and expanded analytics features.

We also improved “Learn with Viberate”, the knowledge archive of our platform, featuring the timeline of our regular webinars and handy industry guides. The findings from one of our articles about streaming services were recently included in this (Spanish) article on the economics of song licensing.

💡 What we learned:

This month’s nugget of wisdom came from the design department, but it can be applied to pretty much anything.

If you take the time to dig into a subject, the “cool” will happen as a side effect.

From seemingly small actions, big results can happen — and we’re already excited to tackle February....
