[BROADTIME STORES] New Item Page Feature, RSD Black Friday Reminder, What's New This Week + More - September 22, 2022

 

Greetings everyone, 

Happy first day of Fall!

As we mentioned a few weeks back, we're working on a number of new features to Tuneportals, one of which is now live that we hope will be a big time-saver for you. Details are below. 

We also have a reminder on the RSD Black Friday List that dropped last week, which is a great opportunity for you to promote specific titles and engage with your customers. 

Likewise, our social media assets present another terrific engagement opportunity with your customers. Don't forget we're constantly updating the content available for you to use on your store's social channels. A list of what's available is included in this note each week. 

As always, we have our list of social media assets currently available, newly featured preorders, what's steering this week and more.

Music matters!
Jon and the Broadtime team

New Feature: Easy Access Item Page 💻


We've implemented a new feature to your websites that may seem small, but should significantly help you find the information you need about a specific item in an expedited manner. It's a useful trick.

If you're looking for information on a specific title, we'll use Sammy Hagar & The Circle's Crazy Times in this instance, we've made it super simple to get to the Admin Item page on Tuneportals from the public-facing item page on your website. 

If you're on the Crazy Times Item page on your site (
https://[yourdomain]/UPC/602448101242), you can now replace "UPC" in the URL with "AdminUPC" and it will automatically take you to the Admin Item page on your Tuneportals site (assuming that you are logged into your Admin).

This will quickly allow you to check pertinent information about the release. You can look at inventory, pricing, feature the item, or write your own review or blurb.
Previously, you would have to go to your AdminHome and manually search for the item via title or UPC. This eliminates that step and expedites your ability to find the information you need about a specific title, fast. 

We've been using this a ton and we hope that you'll find it helpful. 

Let us know if you have questions - support@broadtime.com

RSD Black Friday List Reminder 
 

As you know, Record Store Day dropped its Black Friday List last week, which is available here and on your own site as a dropdown Genre with an additional shortcut of https://[yourdomain]/RSDBF22.

This always brings a great deal of excitement from customers and with it, traffic to your websites. We'll have our usual list of RSD Black Friday procedures for selling RSD titles online as we get a little closer to the holiday but in the meantime, you may link to and promote the list on your sites and at RSD.


If you have questions on this, please send us a note - support@broadtime.com
