The New AudioAcrobat Features and Design Series highlights new and upcoming features, add-on’s, services and general amazing-ness happening at AudioAcrobat. Readers will discover what is changing, how it might influence their strategies and the many advantages ‘change’ itself has to offer.
If you are a return reader at this here AudioAcrobat-flavored WordPress Weblog it is more than likely that you’ve noticed some major design changes to our site in the last couple of days, and more importantly an improved iPad-friendly mobile design and interface.
For those of you who have been wondering if these images are a prelude to a new AudioAcrobat.com site re-design and/or release of new features, the wait is over. Consider this your confirmation.
The screenshot seen at the top of this post was taken from the new AudioAcrobat.com home page, which is not yet but will soon be live, and does seem to hint at AudioAcrobat’s availability on your favorite smartphone… Coincidence? Not at all.
Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s take a quick look at, well, the new ‘look’, shall we?
The Man Retires…
When considering a complete overhaul of the AudioAcrobat web design, there were many factors which came into play for our team. The iconic ‘AudioAcrobat Man’ who has been with us since our launch in 2004 will be taking his leave when the new site goes live and in his place our members will be seeing a more simplified logo focusing on our brand, AudioAcrobat.
First Impressions Are Everything…
After our members log in to their accounts for the first time on the new site, they will undoubtedly notice that the familiar blue tabs which once stretched across the top of the screen have lost their blue coloring and now form the main navigation menu on the left (seen in the photo to the right).
Members will also notice a new drop-down menu which facilitates quick navigation by way of presenting the question, “What would you like to do today?”. We think this is both a fun and original way to engage our members. What do you think?
New Feature #1: My Sizzle Lines
Don’t worry, we haven’t forgot about the new features mentioned above. In fact, we had to hold ourselves back from skipping the design portion and jumping right into the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT. However, what kind of writers would we be if we gave you the punchline before the joke?
Remember that new left navigation menu we mentioned above? When our members follow the left-aligned menu items down the page, they will see a brand new entry listed, “Phones”.
When clicked on, “Phones” will unveil several new features in addition to the familiar “Guest Lines” (now re-named “Reply Lines”). The new items include “My Sizzle Lines” and “Create Sizzle Line”, which in effect, will allow AudioAcrobat members to create and manage their own “Sizzle Lines”.
Sweet! But What’s A Sizzle Line?
As explained to our members who ask this very same question, a ‘Sizzle Line’ allows one to take any audio recording currently existing within their account and apply it to a specific telephone number; allowing for listeners to call-in on the phone to listen.
To say that we’re ‘excited’ or ‘elated’ to release this new feature is putting it mildly. We’re down-right ECSTATIC to share this news with our readers, and can only begin to imagine the clever, business-building ways you will put it to use.
DJs can post mixes; conference calls can be re-hosted for those who missed out; businesses can automate information dispersal. The list goes on and on and on.
And now for a bit of shameless self-promotion…
