IndieCommunication: New Pre-Orders Badge, Upcoming Webinars, and More [5]

Here’s the IndieCommunication e-newsletter for Thursday, April 25:
New Badge for Pre-order Titles and Staff Picks
Pre-order flagBy popular demand, pre-order titles and staff picks can now be flagged on your website. Sites using this feature will display a small version of the badge on small cover images and a large version of the badge on large cover images. Stores also have the option of uploading a custom badge or using the default image. The pre-order flag will only appear on titles with a future on-sale date; the badge will not appear after the on-sale date. If you are interested in using the pre-order feature, you can find the setting on a book’s product page. There is a help doc with more info available here. [6]

May 2 Webinar: Creating Recurring Events in IndieCommerce
Skywriting imageMany of our members run repeat events — story times, book clubs, etc. — that meet weekly or monthly and want a way to list these recurring events with ease. We now have two possible solutions. In this live demo, [8] we will walk through the steps for both these solutions. We will also demo an alternative approach for collecting RSVPs for events on your website. Sign up for this webinar today. [8]
