Website Redesign & Password Reset

Hey Accelereaders!

Just dropping by your inbox to let you know that we've been working hard on a website redesign and are getting ready to go live in a day or two!

Before we go any further, let us take a step back to provide some context:

For the past few weeks, we've been working hard to truly improve the Accelerate experience. With our goal to learn how to best serve our current readers, we've actually closed Accelerate to new subscriptions in order to focus on this!

Some tasks that have kept us busy include:  Reworking our entire Book Brief process to ensure quality summaries, creating systems to receive and implement feedback (without getting overwhelmed!), redoing our website for an increasingly better user experience, and rebudgeting wisely to make sure we can still exist to serve you!

Our most recent project is our website redesign and while we still have lots to do, we're excited to hear your thoughts on the site.

Due to some issues we were having with our previous subscription software, we decided to completely switch our software. This will make the overall experience much more user-friendly, both on desktop and mobile!

Unfortunately, however, the process of migrating all of you to the new site will require everyone to reset their password. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience, but we will be personally reaching out to all of you individually just to check in, ask for feedback, and answer any questions through this process.

So, if you get an automated email from us saying something about your membership being transferred, all that means is we've started the processing of moving websites.

In the meantime, here are some pictures of the site that will be available by the end of the week:

There are still a lot of things we're ironing out, but we're excited to take this next step forward!

Some features that we plan to roll out in November are:

  • Social Login (either with Facebook or Google)
  • Group pricing! (pictured above)
  • An Affiliate Program! (Help us spread the word and earn 30% commission)

Keep an eye out for all of that! Well, that's all for now and as always, your support through the launch of Accelerate means so much to us. We couldn't do this without all of you :). And finally, as part of our goal to better connect with our readers to better serve you, expect to receive a personal email written to you soon!
