That worked!¬† ūüĎć

Great. Currently in the process of fixing duplicates then tagging every product with category / sub category.

We then plan to tag products that are Educational versions, Upgrade/Crossgrade versions and expansion packs just to make it easier to filter / browse.

Then we can get onto more cool automation stuff :)

If you get it to where the Categories are useful, a dropdown with a checkbox (like Company and Stores) could be useful. Would be nice to be able to filter out the Soundpacks, Loops and/or Virtual Instruments. Something like that.  :)

Yep that's the plan :)

Bug: Toggling 2more than 1 item in the Company drop-down filter shows nothing instead of all selected companies.

Example: Drop the Company Combo, toggle "None", the select "Audio Damage" (items show up with the filter), then additionally select "Audio Thing" - no items show up.

@Music Software Deals I'm watching for two solo cello libraries to go on sale, Sonixenima Contemporary Soloists Cello and Have Audio's Nordic Cello. Could you add those to your site? I'd gladly set up email alerts.

Have Audio already there:

We've updated the website design with a new look and some new features:

1. We've tagged a lot of the products in the database with the correct categories, tags etc. So you'll see many products tagged as effects or instruments, then digging down further into the effects/plugin type (compressor, EQ etc.) or instrument category like Kontakt full, Kontakt Player, plugin and even the instrument type (keys, guitar, bundle etc). This is still ongoing as it takes quite a while to manually tag 16,000 or so products but we're getting there!

2. One of the new sets of tags we've added are educational versions, upgrades/crossgrade versions and expansion packs. We found that these were clogging up the search results so we wanted to give users the option to remove these from the search results. You'll see in the "more options" dropdown menu, you can tick these boxes to show/hide them from the results. We'll also add sample packs and bundles as options here too to make it easier to show/hide these as some people may not be interested in either

3. Quick search options - currently you can see two quick search options - "Under $5" and "Under $10" for deals. We want to expand this section further to make it quick and easy to get what you want to see on a daily basis with the click of a button. We were thinking of adding the following options here - would love to hear your thoughts:

  • Icon for each store so you can click it and it will just show the latest deals from that store immediately
  • Latest deals
  • Kontakt Player deals
  • Synth deals
  • Compressor plugin deals
  • EQ plugin deals
  • Sound design plugin deals

Basically we want to have the most common searches that people want to see the results for in one click. Anything that you'd like to see added here?

4. We've improved the layout on each product tile to show the stores where each deal is happening (previously it was only the store prefix with no logo but now its full store name and logo). See attached image.

5. We've improved the price history graph and product page layout to make the page a little easier to navigate and make it clearer where to setup a price alert. For example:

https://musicsoftwaredeals.com/price-history/Virtual-Guitarist-Sparkle-2-by-UJAM-53049/

6. Improved layout of the user price alerts page

7. Added a contact us page :)

 

What we want to do next:

1. Option to setup a price alert for an entire company/brand - maybe you want to get notified when any product by a particular company goes on sale? Thoughts?

2. Option to setup a price alert for a product category - maybe you want to get notified when any sound design plugins or compressors go on sale? Thoughts?

3. Potentially create an automated newsletter of sorts which will email you all of the latest deals on a timeline that you choose yourself. So you can select "I want to get notified of all the latest deals 1 time per week" with more options for timelines etc.

4. Figure out how best to integrate coupons - JRR coupons usually work for most of their products so we need to figure out how best to show the coupons for users for each store in a simple way

We also want to finish tagging all of the products so that's completed.

 

Thoughts? Any feedback or suggestions is greatly appreciated!

Really nice update.  Thanks for continuing to work on your site.  I would like a quick search by percent off.  Especially if it could filter out the stuff that is always "on a super sale".

<edit> Perhaps, stuff that is now at least X percent off versus the price last week. Since you track the history.

Thanks. Good idea about the discount % - we'll try add that to the search criteria so you can select a discount % range (ie. show me things that are between 70% and 80% off),

Let us know if you have any other suggestions!
