One Year Ago: Stanton’s Launched its New Website! Thursday, May 31, 2012
There seems to always be something new happening at Stanton’s. Last year at this time, we were excited for the launch of our new website, which is actually three websites in one: our main site (stantons.com), digital delivery website (digitaldelivery.stantons.com) and, what seems to be our fan favorite, the Stanton’s Listening Library (listeninglab.stantons.com). The new website gave us the ability to offer increased communication and enhanced technology and features for our customers—helping to make the online shopping experience more similar to live shopping in our store!
On our main site, you can easily access our Twitter, Facebook and WordPress feeds and view our most recent posts right on the homepage. All three of these external networks allow you to communicate directly with our creative staff. In each of the 13 main categories, such as Orchestra Music, the tabs on the right side of the screen allow us to easily display staff picks and seasonal materials, and keep our recommendations current with your programming needs.
We have continued to make improvements to our site, even after the initial launch. We added a predictive search to our search engine so that you can find the exact title you need more quickly. A “Wishlist” feature makes it easy for you to build and name multiple lists of items that can be printed, shared or exported to help you plan your concert and your budget. We have fine-tuned our shipping estimator to give you a realistic expectation of what shipping will cost, so there are no surprises. Our Current Promotions and Clinics pages received face lifts, and we added a “Quick Order” feature for when you’ve already collected your catalog numbers and quantities and just want to complete your order as fast as possible.
Many of these ongoing improvements were suggested directly by you–our customers! With the “feedback” button at the bottom of each page of the website, customers have let us know if something wasn’t working quite right so our programmers can narrow down and fix any glitches quickly. Thank you for helping to make our site a useful, user-friendly resource for musicians and music educators, and thank you for choosing Stanton’s Sheet Music for all your sheet music purchases. We welcome your continued feedback as we add more enhanced features in the year to come!
