2019
IN REVIEW

The first-ever image of a black hole, a bunch of people looking for aliens in Area 51, and the end of the Avengers movies. These are just a couple of out-of-this-world things that happened in 2019.

At Foleon, we broke through the atmosphere as well, attaining new heights in digital content creation.


In this year in review, we're going to revisit 2019’s most remarkable highlights, including our rebranding, exciting product improvements, and more.

Plus, we’re thrilled to give you a sneak peek of something really exciting we’re working on: a faster editor.


So grab your mouse, move your hand into position, and start scrolling in 3...2...1...

JANUARY

Advanced Security

Our new collection of advanced security features is the first of many exciting 2019 product improvements we’d like to highlight.


It includes the ability to secure your publications with email whitelists, or via single sign-on access, and our Adaptive Password Policy feature that lets you set your own rules for password strength, validity period, and more.

IN 2019, OUR USERS SAVED MORE THAN 27KM OF A4-SIZED PAPER

This is comparable to laying a trail of paper along the entire ring around Amsterdam.

FEBRUARY

Instant Magazine is now...

It already feels like a decade ago, but we only rebranded to Foleon back in February. Curious to see why we changed our name?

Here's how we celebrated our rebranding

MARCH

Time for a fresh look

Time to elevate your content and show off! Together with our new name, we launched powerful new features like our new Foleon dashboard and a ton of freshly designed publication templates.

READERS SPENT JUST OVER 3 MINUTES, ON AVERAGE, IN A PUBLICATION.

That's like listening to Baby Shark twice but without the unpleasant aftereffects.

JUNE

Fruitful year in the Big Apple

It’s getting crowded in our US office!

JULY

Snackables & Trackables

In a data-driven world, where people want snackables and trackables, it's important to measure the effectiveness of your content.

That's why we’re continuously releasing (and improving) features to better connect Foleon with third-party tools like HubSpot, Salesforce, Marketo, and Eloqua.

For HubSpot specifically, we introduced a new feature that allows you to see how your readers interact with Foleon content right on their HubSpot contact timelines.

MORE THAN 35 THOUSAND FOLEON FORMS WERE SUBMITTED IN 2019

This is comparable to the entire population of Beverly Hills.

AUGUST

Save time and stay on brand

We were thrilled to announce the launch of our new template manager.

It all started with customers asking for the ability to reuse blocks. This inspired our initial idea for the template manager.

Earlier in 2019, we started sketching several possible solutions, which turned into wireframes, and then into final designs.

Afterward, we tested our designs with customers and started developing the template manager.

In August, we finally hit the LAUNCH button! And after just a couple months, we saw customers create over 2000 new templates!

SEPTEMBER

Deloitte Fast 50

We were nominated as one of the 50 fastest-growing tech companies in the Netherlands. This also meant we outgrew our cozy HQ and moved to a brand new office in Amsterdam.

PEOPLE WATCHED 360,673 VIDEOS IN FOLEONS WITH AN AVERAGE LENGTH OF 11.7 MINUTES PER YOUTUBE VIDEO

This is comparable to watching The Irishman on Netflix 20,095 times.

OCTOBER

Gauge the success of your content

In order to help you determine the success of your web-based content, we analyzed 3,660 web publications and gathered our findings a benchmark analysis called The State of Digital Publishing.

Curious to see how your content masterpieces perform against industry benchmarks?

NOVEMBER

Get inspired at your convenience

As you know, modern-day users want to consume content at their own pace. That’s why we launched a full catalog of pre-recorded webinars full of pro tips on making your publications more effective.

THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE USING MOBILE DEVICES TO VIEW FOLEONS IS THE HIGHEST EVER!

40.13% mobile traffic

50.09% desktop traffic

9.94% tablet traffic
