We Made a Shiny New Website Just for YOU!: QLP’s New Website
Hi friends! Have you been to our website lately? If not, you are in for quite a treat! And if you have, well, you may have noticed things are looking a little LOT different these days!
I’m here today to break down all of the cool new features on our site, and I’m really excited! Why don’t you start by checking out this great video made by my friends over in the media department? They’ll go over most of the things I’m about to tell you!
For starters, our refreshed website is a lot easier on the eyes.
Keep in mind, this is our first total cosmetic redesign since 2003! Since this update was long overdue, we pulled out all the stops to make our website sleeker, cleaner, and more intuitive than ever before. Just take a look at this baby!
One of MY personal favorite new additions in the new design is that when you hover over my head with your mouse, I get to share a special message with you! You know me, I’m pretty chatty. So I have all sorts of fun things to say, like this:
So don’t be shy!
Moving right along, this update ain’t all about physical appearance. We have all kinds of new features and functions to make shopping for promo items easier for you – including three patented new search functions.
Now, onto those new search functions!
We’ve added several new search filters to help locating the perfect promo item easier than ever before. Some of these new filters are even complete firsts in the promo product industry!
The first of those new tools is our price and quantity filter, which allows you to enter in your budget requirements and the quantity of items you’re looking for to narrow the search results down to only the products that fit your budget. Most other sites only allow you to either search by bulk price or the “as low as” price, but we’ve made it simple to locate items in your price range at the quantity you need!
The next feature we’ve added to make your life easier is the option to search our catalog by delivery date. We’ve taken out all of the guesswork so that calculating production and shipping time no longer falls on your shoulders. All you have to do is enter the date you need your items on your doorstep, and we’ll only show you the items that can get to you on time!
Lastly, we know how important it is that your logo looks as good as possible. Does your logo need to be printed in 3 colors? Well, not all of our products allow for multiple color imprints, so we’ve added a new search filter that allows you to search our products by imprint type and the number of imprint colors you need.
We’ll go into more detail on those brand new features over the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned!
In addition to those three new options, you now have the option to filter your results by item color, product type, industry, material, and even USA made! All of those filters make it easier and faster for you to find the perfect promo item. You’ll be able to narrow down what could have been a list of 500+ items that meet your needs to a much more manageable search result of 10-15 items. Phew! Muuuuuch better!
Maybe you’re not searching for a particular item, and you’re just browsing for ideas. We’ve made that easier, too!
Allow me to introduce you to our new browsing options.
You’ve always had the option to browse our items by product category, but now you can also browse by industry, holidays, or causes.
Just hover over one of the options in that top navigation menu and a handy little drop-down will appear with a list of possible industries, holidays, and causes to choose from.
So now if you are hosting a fundraising event for Breast Cancer Awareness Month but aren’t sure which promo items to choose for your event, you can easily find product suggestions! All you have to do is select the “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” option from the “Causes” dropdown menu, and you’ll get an entire list of items perfectly suited for breast cancer awareness.
In addition to those new categories, we’ve also improved our related item feature on each product page. Now when you view any item page on our site, there will be a list of related items at the bottom of the page that you can filter based on items that are similar, items that are less expensive, items that have a lower minimum quantity, or items that can get to you faster than the item you are viewing.
The last feature that I’m going to talk about today is our new and improved footer!
On our old website if you needed some information and resources, you really had to dig. Now we’ve put several of our best resources right in the footer of every page in our site! So whether you want to know more about our shipping information, need some tips on vector artwork, or are looking for our PMS ink colors, all of that information and more is just one click away.
That’s all I have for today, folks, but I’ve just barely scratched the surface of all of the cool, helpful new things our website has to offer! Why don’t you go ahead and check it out for yourself? And don’t forget to stay tuned the rest of this month for even more details about how to use all of our new features!
