It’s here, it’s hip & it’s happening, Disco Matt’s new “Picks” section that accentuates the visuals, cuts the DM chat & drills down the detail, linking into website & event pages of his choice picks of where to be or be seen on the scene, while with a spring site spruce that includes a new promotions section, DM reports on the changes and then points to further future plans .
Well, it’s been over a year since we launched our bespoke website although time stands still for no man and during this evolutionary period we have implemented a few changes that have included a whole family of promotional banners & visuals to compliment or recommendations of where to be & be seen on the scene. And while we are still in the process of considering a complete website overhaul & fresh new look, with a spring in our step, just yesterday we implemented a few subtle changes to our current site layout, some which you may have already noticed.
So what changes have we made? Well, we have updated all the scripts within our categories & sections, while the sections on our home page have also been updated, a new “Welcome To Disco Matt” panel summarising who we are, while “Disco Matt Suggests” is also new & links via interactive banners to those scene websites we feel are worth a visit Then there is the new “Disco Matt Published” panel which directs you to alternative online sites where our reviews, recommends, reports, music & other posts are featured, while we have revised & expanded the promotional banners on our website of those clubs events, businesses & music producers we are supporting, both in London & internationally, this week emphasising the approaching Easter weekend, as well as propelling our “Pick Of The Day” & “Best Bite” choices visuals.
And that pick of the day mention neatly moves onto a subtle change to our site that we are quite excited about, as we have dropped our “Lists” concept which hardly got off the ground, replacing it with Picks”, the idea here to expand on the pick of the day & podcast of the week postings we issue from our Facebook page (http://facebook.com/pages/Disco-Matt/112730602119746) & our Tumblr site (http://.tumblr.com/blog/discomatt). But the big difference here will be the deliverance of club &/or event detail direct from the horses mouth, so cutting out the Disco Matt chat that comes with our recommends reports, rather letting the club promoters & event organisers do the talking. Plus, with the visuals the major feature plus with links to website & events pages a click away, “Picks” will allow us to enhance on the promotional banners on our site, as well as extend our coverage of the scene to a wide range of events, not just pick’s of the day, but much more.
But our spring site spruce has also focused on the visual rather than the commentary, we acknowledging that the high speed lives you lead often mean you don’t have time to delve into our sometimes demonstrative detail in our recommendations, rather reap from a straight to the point reminder about where to be & be seen on the scene, hence our new substantially sized interactive banner section at the head of our home page. Working in tandem with our promotional banners, this new section allows you to link directly with website, event, & ticket pages, by simply clicking on the image allowing you to make your own informed choices, although with our own recommendations in mind. And for you club owners, promoters & event organisers, this is a space where you can plug & push your happening’s, a simple e-mail to us at email@example.com including your rectangular banner artwork (dimensions 600 by 250) could see you feature fully on our site. Plus with plans to incorporate this feature into a website re-design, still on the drawing board, visuals of this nature mark the new era in our world.
So, subtle spring spruce site changes they may be, but in an ever evolving world on the web and with plans to launch a brand new scene website, the future is looking bright & beautiful. (DISCO MATT)
