[BROADTIME STORES] - RSD Record Traffic, Finding Social Assets, New Preorders, Blocks and More - April 28, 2022


Greetings everyone, 

Hope everyone had a fantastic Record Store Day last Saturday. We've heard from many of you about the incredible in-person turnout last weekend, which is great to hear after a unique two years. 

We also experiencing amazing web traffic to RecordStoreDay.com, the most ever in the 15-year history of the event. More details on the digital success from last weekend are below. 

As metrics from RSD show, social media continues to play a large roll in the success of RSD and physical music sales in general. This week, we have a Two Minute Clinic showing you where to find the social media assets we make available to you weekly. 

As always, we have a list of newly featured preorders and titles we're currently blocking across our sites.

RSD Traffic Record 🚀

Thanks to tremendous collaboration and a lot of hard work by many folks, Record Store Day continues to produce incredible success stories each and every year. 

This year there was palpable excitement for the return of in-person shopping at many stores for the first time in two years. Even with people flocking to brick and mortar again this year, it didn't dampen digital interest in RSD. 

We set a new record for the biggest single day of traffic on RecrordStoreDay.com in the website's 15-year history, with more details and specifics in Record Store Day's official wrap-up report, which is coming soon. 

In addition, we had a significant increase in user sessions up from last year's June RSD Drop which was our previous record. 

These numbers show that interest and excitement around physical music, vinyl and RSD continues to grow.
