Navigating our new website: a map for the perplexed
As with all new things, a little change takes a little time.
As we come into one of our busy periods of the year, we have many long-term Proost supporters coming back to the site and if you’ve been used to the way things have been previously at Proost, you’ll notice lots has changed. This little news story is to give you a map of where and how things work.
We’ve tried to make navigation on the site as simple as possible.
All content is now set in three sections Music (all music), Downloads (all other digital products) and Books (physical books to be delivered by mail.). Rather than breaking down things by theme you can now find everything on each of these three pages. The Music page is below to give you an example of how it all looks…
If you have a Get it All subscription then you can download all downloads and all music which is digitally available. Thats currently over 60 products worth in excess of £300.
This subscription and new ones for all our physical library are available in Get it All.
Ordering a product
Again we’ve tried to make this as easy as possible.
Click on the product, press add to cart and then order.
You don’t need to have an account to do this. If you previously had an account, sadly with new servers and infrastructure we’ve not been able to bring those with us. However, you don’t need to have an account to make any orders. This is now your choice rather than a must. The benefit of this is that you can remain off mailing lists and stay anonymous whilst buying if you’d prefer.
However, when you get to paying for your cart, you do have the option to then subscribe and create an account.
See the pictures below for a guided process through selling. We hope they help.
Lastly the new website gives us a few things new to Proost if you’ve not experienced them before.
Physical products as well as downloads. We now have a large library of physical books available to purchase from the site. This means you don’t have to rely simply on PDF’s and eBooks. This includes the incredibly popular Future Present
2. We have an events section in the Top Menu, telling you of Proost events going on around the country. We are aiming to increase the number of Live events we do in 2019 so watch this space.
3. We have a number of new features to the homepage as you scroll down. Once you scroll past the featured resources you’ll find news and then notably Free Downloads and Tracks, Instagram features and our SoundCloud page. Take a look on the bottom of the homepage.
We hope this guide helps you as you navigate the new site. Do also let us know any feedback through firstname.lastname@example.org so we can improve things.
