[BROADTIME STORES] - Olivia R. Remind, Store Questionnaire (Please Fill out), Social Media Assets, What's New This Week, RSD ESSENTIALS and More - June 2, 2022

 

Greetings everyone, 

Hope you all had a great Memorial Day. 

A reminder about the delay in last week's wildly popular Olivia Rodrigo release is below. 

We're also still collecting responses to our store questionnaire. These are incredibly helpful for us to spotlight your stores to record label executives in our weekly newsletter to them. If you haven't already, please take a few minutes to answer these six short questions about you and your business. 
 

As always, our list of social assets currently available, as are
newly featured preorders, what's streeting this week and titles we're currently blocking across our sites.

If you have questions this weekend or at any point, we're always here to help. Remember to shoot a note to support@broadtime.com so that your note goes to multiple members of our team. 

Music matters!
Jon and the Broadtime team

Olivia Rodrigo Madness 🔥

ICYMI last week, we were informed by Universal that the manufacturer of the Olivia Rodrigo indie exclusive vinyl version of Sour is woefully behind on production. 

As of street date last Friday (May 27), only about 20% of the total being pressed were available. This was one of the biggest-selling albums of 2021 and we had a high volume of orders across our sites for this title. 


If you have orders placed for Sour and they did not fill last week the good news is, AEC is expecting more copies most likely within the next 30 days, so we should still be able to fill orders placed, there will just be a delay. 

Should customers inquire about the status of orders for this Olivia Rodrigo title, let them know it should fill, it will be delayed due to incredibly high demand combined with massive manufacturing delays.  

If you have any questions, drop us a note - support@broadtime.com

Reminder: Store Questionnaire: Help us tell your story 
✍️

A big thanks to everyone who has filled out our store questionnaire. We are still collecting answers to help us develop brief bios on each of our partner stores. These stories are posted on Broadtime.com, and we're also including one per week in our newsletter that goes to over 200 record label executives. 

We feel it’s important to spotlight great indie retailers like you to key decision-makers at the labels as well as anyone visiting our website. We've gotten great feedback from label execs on learning more about your stores.  

You can see examples of the profiles we've done so far this year on our homepage

If you haven't already, please take five quick minutes to fill out this questionnaire (six very short questions) it would help us tremendously in our effort to gather info and properly tell your story.

THINK INDIE / RSD ESSENTIALS & INDIE EXCLUSIVES 


For RSD Essentials, since they are often Build to Order, we are setting up these titles and NOT making them live for Preorder. If you KNOW your quantities expected AND you wish to take preorder then you must manually add quantities in your Admin. 

We just setup 12 New titles this week so you may wish to manage accordingly. These are primarily through Think Indie and most (all but one I believe) are available through AEC.
