Pros: Beamer allows our readers easy access to our articles and content and gives returning visitors an indication to new content.

Had a little issue on initial setup and customer support was quick in logging and resolving the issue.

Cons: Not experienced anything I don't like. So I can't say there is anything bad about it as it's all positive so far.

Overall: We were searching for a plug-in that would allow our returning visitors to be notified of new content right from the home page of our site.

We found beamer and not only did it give us this functionality it also gave us a handy popout with a list of our content that readers can scroll and go directly to the desired article without the need to visit the actual blog page which is very convenient for readers of the site.

Pros: My favorite feature is the way I can embed the code on multiple website and have the Beamer news, announcements and updates appear on all of them instantly. We have membership sites, a help desk and a front end website that all communicate urgent news at a moment's notice to help offset tickets and issues.

Cons: My only concern a few months ago was the lack of hyperlink ability inside the text editor. In a recent release, they rolled out that feature so we're happy now.

Overall: Beamer has been pivotal in releasing news, announcement, updates instantly on multiple platforms. They're constant feature updates also suggest a dedication towards improving the platform. Overall, I'm quite happy.

Pros: The Beamer help to improve audience engagement with the real-time push notifications. The free tier is generous with unlimited domains and notification for any business.

However, the higher tier plan is even better if you need more premier features of customization, personal and reaction feedback.

Easy to embed with Wordpress plugin and javascript code. Besides, Beamer works perfectly without any issues.

Cons: The customized feature in free tier plan is too limited. It should be extended at least the user can change the font (font-family, size, line-height, etc).

Overall: I use Beamer to push any improvements or fixes on my blog and I never forget attach affiliate link to optimize notification.

Pros: It's a fast and easy way to showcase new features and products on my site in an engaging and eye-catching way, without having to fiddle with code. Just login, add the message, schedule it, and you're done. Support has been great, very fast and helpful.

Cons: Limited formatting options (bold, italics, lists, links, headers), but more than enough to make the messages stand out and look clean.

Overall: We've seen an increase in engagement and sales from existing website traffic because our customers are seeing the new products and features showcased on the site. It's really been so simple for us to use. Highly recommend it, especially for SaaS businesses, membership sites, and more.

Pros: We really like the zapier integration -- we use zapier for many things, and this makes it super easy to get the updates everywhere we need them.

Works really well with integrations and the stand-alone page.

Cons: Everything we've brought up has been developed, so nothing left to say negative!

Overall: The support team worked with us on a technical challenge regarding monitoring, and they were able to pretty quickly fix their systems to not trigger alerts for our monitoring in the middle of the night when they did maintenance.

Pros: Beamer is incredibly easy to use and implement into a website or app. I had it up and running in about 5 minutes. I like the ability to create drafts before going live and previewing the look and feel of each update.

Cons: There is a little wonkiness with text formatting and the WYSIWYG editor. Could use a few small tweaks or maybe allow for an "HTML" view to write custom code.

Overall: Customer support is great and they're very much open to customer feedback, nice work!
