One of the standout features of this latest series of updates is the revamped user interface (UI) of the Ads simulation. Recognizing the need of more intuitive design, as well as using suggestions from users of our platform, the Simbound development team has crafted a sleek and modern interface that streamlines navigation and enhances accessibility.


With a clean layout and simplified set of menu options, users can now more easily navigate through various campaign, ads, keyword and research pages and perform tasks with ease. The UI overhaul reflects a commitment to user-centric design principles, with data in graphical format being easier to interpret.

The quick and informative tutorial is meant to help new users unlock a seamless experience across devices and screen sizes.

In addition to the visual enhancements, the update introduces several new functionalities aimed at empowering learners with greater control and customization options.

New features include the addition of new keywords, generating ad copy on the go, as well as new types of campaigns such as shopping campaigns.

The dashboard is now customizable which allows each participant to the simulation to personalize their workspace and prioritize key metrics for quick access, further adapting to each learning style and providing efficiency.  

The ads simulation contains a new series of tooltips  - small buttons which provide additional information on key features and decisions to be made and also more initial guidance is provided when setting up ad campaign for the first time.

Another recent release is that of the Affiliate marketing simulation, which allows Simbound learners to manage their own affiliate marketing platform - affiliate partners are usually blogs or other review websites that send new visitors to the website in the simulation. Affiliate marketing allows any company in the simulation to tap into another website owner's audience and pay a commission when a product is sold. Affiliates open up a new method of expanding the students' website in the simulation, helping them to diversify their brand presence and gain more external links pointing to their website. Having multiple websites linking back to each of the website pages will help learners to better manage their SEO strategy.

This latest addition of the Affiliate marketing simulation brings the total amount of digital marketing simulation modules to 5 making Simbound a most comprehensive learning platform for digital marketing courses.
 

Furthermore, the update brings significant improvements to the support service provided by the Simbound team by means of an AI powered chat bot which is designed to help instructors with every aspect of setting up and managing the course experience from setup to performance assessments and improvements.


As part of our ongoing commitment to customer satisfaction, Simbound is also currently developing resources in expanding its student support infrastructure, with new AI-powered chat bots being developed to provide platform knowledge and comprehensive answers to various learning questions, empowering students to solve problems independently and learn at an unprecedented pace. Our responsive customer support channels are found across 6 different global timezones and they ensure timely assistance and resolution of any queries or concerns that users may encounter.
 

Security and compliance have always been top priorities at Simbound, and this update reinforces that commitment with enhanced security features. The implementation of new technologies provides an added layer of protection against potential security threats, safeguarding sensitive personal data and ensuring compliance with the latest set of European requirements. Additionally, a more frequent security audits and proactive monitoring mechanisms help mitigate risks and ensure a secure environment for learners to conduct their course work confidently in a safe and protective environment.


Finally, the development and redesign of some of our existing simulations, such as email marketing, will include a new set of ESG decisions. In partnership with the University of Plymouth in the UK, we are laying the groundwork for a new and improved way of teaching digital marketing, which will include the importance of communicating online about environmental, social and governance (ESG) impact.


In conclusion, the latest series of updates to the Simbound SaaS software represents a significant leap forward in terms of functionality, usability, security and overall user experience.
