How to Make the Most of Our New Homepage
January 10, 2020
You may have noticed that our homepage recently got a makeover! Over the past year, we’ve developed new features to improve your browsing experience and help you find the titles you want quickly and easily. To better showcase these tools and help you navigate our website more efficiently, we recently implemented a few homepage design changes.
Everything you use regularly is still here for you; we’ve just organized things a little differently. Read below to discover how to make the most of the new layout.
For your general browsing needs, click on the Browse dropdown located under our Book Depot logo. From here, you’ll have easy access to popular product categories, new arrivals, promotions, clearance, mark downs, and lists such as bestsellers, regional, seasonal, languages, special interest, and awards. Looking for something specific? Not to worry, you can also search our entire inventory by clicking browse all books in the top left corner of the browse dropdown.
You can also browse our inventory via the search bar, located beside the Log In button in the header.
The other dropdown menus (retailer/bookseller, library/educational, and nonprofit) provide more targeted browsing options and highlight lists, blogs, and testimonials that were selected to appeal to specific company types. Each of these dropdown menus includes content geared toward particular customers, so you can find the products and features that will be most applicable to your unique needs.
The main banner on our homepage now provides quick access to the top 200 titles purchased at Book Depot in real-time. Click the orange arrows to scroll through a selection of titles that other customers are buying, or click on browse inventory to view all of our products. You can also click the row of grey dots to explore other featured content, such as sales and promotions, featured lists, links to new blog posts, and more!
Located under the main banner, a list of featured icons will help you find the content you want quicker. These icons link to our new arrivals, categories, bestsellers, promotions, clearance, and the knowledge center.
