A Better Shopping Experience

Accordance Cart

One of the questions we often get from new customers is “Which Accordance collection is right for me?” I remember asking this same question when I first bought Accordance. I knew I wanted original language tools because I was studying Greek and Hebrew in seminary at the time. I knew I wanted commentaries and Bible dictionaries to help me develop better sermons. Lastly, I knew I wanted the Atlas and other graphics tools because they looked insanely cool. Ultimately, I decided that the Super Bundle was the best fit for my needs. I was extremely happy with my purchase, but I must admit that it took a while for me to decide on this. With such a large catalog of products, it can be challenging for new users to determine which collection is right for them.

Many of you have been requesting a more intuitive shopping experience on our website, and we have been listening. We have just completed step one of a three step process designed to improve the online shopping experience for our users. The first step was to implement a new product landing page that does a better job of guiding people in the right direction when they first visit our website. You can see the finished page here.

The carousel at the top briefly summarizes our main collections. However, the most exciting feature is at the bottom of the page where we have added a new Top Ten chart. The left tab displays Featured Products that we will periodically update based on new releases and some of our staff favorites. The right tab displays our Top Selling Products which can be sorted by category. So, if you’re interested in buying a new commentary, you can display the top selling commentaries to find out what other Accordance users are picking up. The same is possible for Greek and Hebrew tools, Bibles, and all of our other product categories. We  think this will be a great referral system for those looking to pick up some new Bible study tools, and we really hope you enjoy this new feature.

You may already be able to guess what step two will be, since it is previewed on the landing page. Step two will be a new comparison chart that allows visitors to compare collections side by side. This chart will make it easy to compare the contents of various collections you are considering, helping you decide which one is right for you.

Step three is on the horizon as well, and we will let you know as soon as its ready. In the mean time, comment below to let us know what you think of the new product landing page.

Lookds great! One suggestion would be to add the option to see more on the featured and best selling sections. THe Mac App stores do this and allow you to conitnue to load these top ten lists a little further.
