Exciting Plans For 2024

Two days ago a customer in our Facebook Group asked about what we have planned for a sister product, SureMembers.

I asked them to give me a day to formalize the plans, so I could share them.

Since our plans for Presto Player are closely aligned with SureMembers, I thought I would post both here.

Like anything, these are our plans, and sometimes things can happen to delay or change plans, but this is what we are going to be working on in 2024. If something is a few weeks or even a month behind, it’s just how it goes sometimes.

First, let me share our plans for Presto Player then SureMembers because these two products will become the perfect pair.

Presto Player 2024 Plans

Next year we will be rebranding Presto Player and bringing it into the Sure family of products. If you haven’t aready checked out SureCart, SureMembers, and SureTriggers, you are missing out on the most powerful tools in the WordPress ecosystem.

In 2024, we aim to have 4 major feature releases that will get us closer to our long term plans for Presto Player.

Release 1: Instant video/playlist pages

Currently, when you create a video in the media hub, you then place it on a page or post.

Following the huge success of Instant Checkout Pages in SureCart, we are bringing the same concept into Presto Player to make it quick and easy to build gorgeous video pages and playlist pages in an instant.

Instant video/playlist pages will lay the foundation for structured online courses and e-learning applications within the Sure family of products.

Release 2: SureMembers & SureCart integration, Pay Per View

We have long wanted to offer protected videos as part of a membership program, online course, or just pay per video.

We will be building a deep integration with SureCart and SureMembers that will unlock powerful ways to monetize your video content.

Protect and sell access to these instant video pages and instant playlist pages.

Release 3: Viewer/student profile pages

Presto Player already tracks your viewers. We just never built an interface to display what they are watching and for how long.

We will build it in a modular way that will integrate with SureMembers so that you can have comprehensive member profile pages.

Release 4: Overall improvements and polish

We will take this last release cycle to make overall improvements and address user requests.

SureMembers 2024 Plans

In 2024, we aim to have 4 major feature releases that will get us closer to our long term plans for SureMembers.

Release 1: Email notification system, user import, onboarding

Most of the development of these features is already done. Email notifications will lay the groundwork for the next release.

Release 2: Integration with Presto Player

We will enable SureMembers to protect instant video pages and instant playlist pages, as well as individual videos in a playlist.

This will enable you to create structured online courses.

Release 3: Roadmaps

Roadmaps is a new feature aimed at solving a problem with all membership plugins and websites.

It aims to answer the question in your members mind: What should I be doing on this membership website?

As the site owner, you will create Roadmaps for your members. A Roadmap is a series of steps your members should go through as part of your membership.

Steps can be:

  • Visit page on your website
  • Watch a video or a video playlist created by Presto Player
  • Take a quiz created in SureForms
  • Click on a link
  • Book a meeting in LatePoint
  • Download a file
  • Take some action

With Roadmaps you will be able to create adaptive learning programs for your members.

It’s perfect for online training programs, coaching programs, really use case.

We think it’s the future of online learning for WordPress websites.

Release 4: Overall improvements and polish

We will take this last release cycle to make overall improvements and address user requests.

Wrap Up

So here you have it, our plans for 2024.

Hope you can appreciate the transparency and we hope you are excited for an amazing 2024.
