Ive been slowly putting together some content updates for my existing Marketplace packages and ive come across a small problem. Editing my content on the Marketplace is easy enough, but how do i notify my clients that there is new content for the packages they have already bought?
They could be missing out on some rather important or dare I say EPIC new content
Having forum threads for Marketplace packages is great, it enables you to reach people that use the forums regularly at least until your thread gets buried again but what about those that dont use the forums that often, or even at all? How do i reach those people.
So onto my feature request. It would be fantastic if as a Marketplace Seller I could reach my customer base via some means (probably email) to be able to announce things like new content updates for existing packages.
Ive talked to a few people on Unreal Slackers about this and they think it would be a great idea.
Of course this would be an Opt in style situation, possibly where by when a user purchases a new package they can select a check box to receive notifications from the package creator.
My thoughts were that perhaps on the Seller Portal there is a form that a Seller could input like a newsletter style announcement which when submitted gets pushed to all their clients anonymously. Obvious Epic would handle it all behind the scenes and no information about Email Addresses would ever change hands between the clients and sellers.
Im really interested to hear other peoples thoughts on this as i believe it could be a powerful tool.
