[BROADTIME STORES] - RSD Essentials Reminder, Importing Local Inventory, Store Questionnaire (Please Fill out), Social Media Assets, What's New This Week, and More - June 9, 2022

 

Greetings everyone, 

In this week's Two Minute Clinic, we talk about maximizing the offerings on your website by importing local store inventory. If you're not currently uploading albums you have in your store, we have a step-by-step video to show you how to do so and increase selling opportunities for customers shopping online. 

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, we have our list of social assets currently available,
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

THINK INDIE / RSD ESSENTIALS & INDIE EXCLUSIVES 


For RSD Essentials, since they are often Built 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 preorders then you must manually add quantities in your Admin. 

We just setup 12 New titles last 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.

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.
