The changes we are making at Slipped Discmain
We’ve had a quiet rollout of the new website this week and are generally gratified with the readership’s response.
Some obviously take a negative view to any kind of change but we’re making improvements all the time.
Among the key new features you may have noticed a pop-up invitation to subscribe.
This will grant certain privileges, including a daily summary of our posts and special offers from commercial partners.
We have managed to keep the site free to readers and hope we can continue to do so. Unlike other music sites, we do not hide behind a paywall and we aim to keep it that way. Our new subscription revenue will enable us to employ more staff and improve the product.
Other changes have upgraded the visuals and the search facility and made room for some additional features that we will introduce soon.
Our investment in the site is a token of faith in the needs of our readers and of our belief that classical music is of interest to a much broader public than ever sets foot in a concert hall or opera house. Two million readers a month on Slipped Disc tell us that the music business has a long way to go before it reaches the bulk of its core market.
