[BROADTIME STORES] - RSD Summer Camp, Jack White Splash Page, Importing Local Store Inventory, Social Media Assets, What's New This Week, and More - July 21, 2022

 

Greetings everyone, 

Hope the week is treating you well. 

We're gearing up for RSD Summer Camp in a few weeks and look forward to seeing so many of you in person for the first time in a few years! Let us know if you're planning to attend. Also, there is a Splash page running Friday through Monday this week for the new Jack White release "Entering Heaven Alive". More info below...

Don't forget that uploading your store's local inventory is a great way to expand your online offerings and maximize sales on your website. We have our Two Minute Clinic on how to do so below. 

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

RSD Summer Camp ⚜️

We're super excited for RSD Summer Camp to return in just a few weeks! Hard to believe it's been three years since the last in-person Summer Camp. While we loved the innovative Couch Camp concept, we're excited to gather with so many friends in person. 

Summer Camp is a fantastic event from our friends
 at Record Store Day and the Music Business Association (Music Biz) that presents a great opportunity to network with people throughout the industry, bounce ideas around and pick up new ideas to help your business. 

Summer Camp runs from Tuesday, August 9 through Thursday, August 11. If you haven't already registered, we highly recommend it. 

If you are making the trip, Chris, Sammy and I from Broadtime will be onsite and would love to connect. Shoot me a note - jon@broadtime.com - and we'll coordinate schedules.

Splash Page this Weekend - Jack White

Entering Heaven Alive is the Fifth studio album from Jack White, founding member of The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and The Dead Weather. True to his DIY roots, this record was recorded at White's Third Man Studio throughout 2021, mastered by Third Man Mastering, and released by Third Man Records.
Entering Heaven Alive splash page will run from Friday, July 22 through Sunday, July 24

Fear of the Dawn

Remember, it's very simple to activate or deactivate the Splash pages on your individual site if you wish. 

You just need to go to your Tuneportals Admin, scroll down to select your Site Settings ([yourwebsite].com/AdminSite), and Splash pages is towards the bottom of the page with a check box that will default to ON when we publish, usually the lock page is ON as well.

If you want to turn yours off for any reason, you can just uncheck the box in that location, and turn it back on at any time.

 

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out - support@broadtime.com
