Today we’re making two big announcements involving VIPs: a Storify VIP option for professional enterprise users, and a partnership with WordPress VIP
Announcing Storify VIP
Storify VIP is a premium service we’re launching for media organizations, publishers, or anyone wanting to deeply integrate social curation and storytelling into their site. But first, a bit of background info.
We’ve been listened closely to feedback from everyone along the way, but it’s been clear for a while that professional users have had a specific, unique set of requested features to fit their major distribution needs, particularly things like advanced customization options, enterprise-class support and real-time story updating. This is exactly what we’re offering with Storify VIP.
(To be clear, the regular version of Storify we all know and love will remain free as always. Seriously, we have no plans to eliminate the free part of our service!)
• Real-time updates: We’ll provide the infrastructure to enable dynamic, live updating of stories (ideal for live-blogging major news and events)
