Vision and Change
About 6 months ago, we launched the first step in an improved version of our website. Today we take another step in that process. At the core, we have been and will always be dedicated to being the leading publication focused on teaching sustainable beekeeping to beginning; as well as experienced beekeepers. With our broad range of readers – beginners to experts, rural to urban, layman to PhD., we want to take advantage of the technologies available today and ensure the most timely and engaging delivery of information that is most relevant to you. Further, we want to be as approachable as possible and want you to get to know us and our dedicated writers who work hard to focus on curating and creating the best on specific topics.
But, as they say, change is not easy. To set the new foundation, we introduced a new subscriber management system that makes it easier to subscribe, renew and select from a broader and deeper array of content access options. Joining our existing system to this new model was a challenge, but we figured it out. It is a better system.
And of course now there is the enhanced website, which we feel is rich in content and offers access to every magazine article, Catch The Buzz post, and additional posts about Beekeeping, Bee Life, Bee Science and Bee Resources. In recognizing how more and more people are accessing our web content on mobile phones, we made sure that our website was optimized for this browsing experience when you’re on the go.
Also, we have dramatically improved the experience with our digital edition of Bee Culture. The page flipping browser experience will still be available to our digital subscribers, but this content will now be available in a much more readable layout/experience via our new mobile app for mobile phones and tablets.
The changes announced today are just the beginning. Future plans include bringing you access to our Bee Culture Magazine archive dating back to 1985, bringing you credible, expert beekeeping training from beginner to expert level, accessible through our website and live webinar events with me and special guests.
We would really appreciate any feedback by leaving us a comment at the bottom of this post regarding your thoughts on our new offering.
Thanks for checking us out,
