Have you ever been to our website and typed in a list of your favorite authors one-by-one to see if we had any in stock? Or how about plugging in several keywords to find out if we carried any books on areas of interest that your customers frequently shop for? Does your week get busy and you forget to check our new arrivals page for the latest books available? Do you prefer to work off a spreadsheet instead of a website when you are analyzing product?
If you said yes to any of the questions listed above, then I have some wildly exciting news for you!
In an effort to continue to provide our customers with the best shopping experience possible through our website, Book Depot has just launched our newest and most powerful feature yet, the Custom List Creator. This tool gives you the ability to customize lists to your particular needs and preferences, save lists for later, create templates so that you can have the lists emailed to you, and even pick the day and frequency for how often you want those lists sent to you! Similar to our Check Inventory tool, you also have the ability to import or paste in long lists of favorite authors or keywords and receive results in just one click.
On top of all this, you are also given the ability to apply filters to your lists so that you can trim the results down by quantity restrictions, hone in on certain price points that make sense for your budget, pick in-stock arrival date parameters, only include favorite publishers, and even exclude your previously viewed lists so you are not viewing the same titles over and over again.
How do you get to this new tool you may be asking? Once you are logged in, simply click on the icon at the top of the page and click My Lists to get started. Once you click create, you have the ability to create your custom list with the following categories:
- Price & Quantity
- Arrival Date
- Exclude Lists
- All of the Above
For an introduction of this powerful tool, please take a look at our video below.
We are working harder for your business than ever before. Soon you’ll start seeing lists that we will create for you and import right into your profile to further save you time. These lists will be specific to your company type and you won’t even have to lift a finger. For example, we will be creating a Top 100 Bestselling Titles list by company type so you won’t miss out on any great titles your fellow buyers are purchasing. Another example is our Lost Opportunity lists whereby we provide you with a list of titles where you purchased our full inventory that we now have back in stock. These types of lists will be available monthly and will offer a more efficient browsing opportunity.
We are extremely excited to introduce this new tool to you and we truly believe this will revolutionize the way you shop our website. Not only do we want to provide you with the largest selection of books, but we also want to save you time and money when you shop with us by providing you time saving tools right at your fingertips. In the upcoming weeks, Book Depot will produce a series of short webinars to help walk you through the many ways you can create lists so that you can make the most of the resources readily available to you.
If you have any questions about this or any of our special features including the Check Inventory tool, we would encourage you to contact us.
