0  comments

We’ve got some exciting updates we’re making to our website to give you a cleaner, updated, and more user-friendly experience across our most popular programs.

I can’t wait to tell you more about the changes so let’s dive right in.

Why We’ve Made These Updates

Before we outline the specific changes we’re making, I think it’s important to take a brief look at why we’re making these changes.

At Bear Country Bees, we believe in constantly innovating to make things better for our customers. Innovation is one of our core values and is at the center of everything we do.

Now, innovation comes in many forms including new systems, better processes, additional features…

…and yes, even updating websites to give you a more seamless experience packed with great features.

Updating website experiences is something that is frightfully uncommon in the world of beekeeping. 

Overtime, this leaves the world having to rely on beekeeping websites that look like this:

Bad Beekeeping Website 1 1 | Bear Country Bees

Or this….

Bad Beekeeping Website #3

Or heaven forbid like this….

Bad Beekeeping Website #2

When we first founded Bear Country Bees, we were all in agreement that we didn’t want to be this kind of company.

We didn’t want to be stagnant and deliver sub-par products and services to our customers.

That is why we consistently make these updates.

Today’s update is part of a series of larger updates that started with our homepage and most recently featured a complete overhaul of our Adopt-A-Hive program.

Since that time, we’ve been hard at work updating, overhauling, and redesigning most of the other major systems our website uses to give you an even better experience.

This in mind, let’s take a look at the changes that are coming.

Changes We’re Making + When They’re Coming

As you can imagine, we’re thrilled to announce changes effective today for our two most popular programs:

Bear Country Bees - Store Logo

Store

Raw honey, 100% pure beeswax, beekeeping supplies, decorative beeswax candles, and other honey bee products

Bear Country Bees - Blog Logo

Blog

Free articles designed to help the world learn how to save honey bees and be better beekeepers

Without question, these are two of our most popular programs.

Our customers have loved being able to quickly and easily access beekeeping and honey bee products.

Similarly, our website visitors have spent hundreds of hours pouring over our ever-growing library of free beekeeping articles.

Effective today, both of these programs are being given a beautiful new design, rich with helpful features and with greater functionality than ever before. 

Here's a taste of the improvements we've made:

Previous Experience - Store
This is what the previous version of the Store looked like...
New Experience - Store
...and here's the new gorgeously designed experience that gives you greater flexibility, more helpful features, and a better overall experience
Previous Experience - Blog
Here is what our Blog used to look like...
New Experience - Blog
...and here's the new experience with a much cleaner interface, easier access to the most important content, and other useful features.

Updating these programs required us to overcome numerous hurdles that we didn’t have when making the updates to our homepage and Adopt-A-Hive pages.

But it’s absolutely worth it for us to tackle difficult challenges and make things better for you.

More Updates To Come Soon

While the focus of today’s update is on our Store and Blog programs, we have many more updates on our roadmap.

Spoiler!

Among others, our Contact page will soon be getting a complete overhaul with a new design and many additional features.


I think you're going to love what we have in mind for that page 🙂 

Stay tuned for more information on updated pages, new designs, additional functionality, and more!

Take It For A Spin & Let Us Know What You Think

Now that the new experience for our Store and Blog programs is available, I’d love to have you take it for a test drive.

Once you’ve done that, we want to hear what you love as well as what else we can do to make the experience even better for you.

Please let us know what you think by leaving us a comment below. Can’t wait to hear from you!
