Getting To Know Our Website’s New Features
Posted By Good Sam On April 16, 2012 @ 1:45 pm In Club News | 17 Comments
In an effort to continually improve the functionality of our website, we have recently rolled out several new features on GoodSamClub.com . These new features include:
Our Redesigned Homepage
As you’ve probably already noticed, we’ve recently rolled out a new homepage design. In an effort to make finding your favorite features quickly and easily, this new design offers the same great features available with the old design that you’ve come to love and enjoy as well as many exciting new features.
(Please coordinate the numbers listed below with the numbers in the picture for placement references.)
1.) Membership: We’ve added quick links for joining or renewing your membership at the top of the homepage so that no matter if you’re signed into the website or not, you can find these valuable links to join or renew your membership quickly and easily.
2.) Drop down menu: The biggest improvement that we’ve made to our website is the addition of a drop down menu. This new feature replaces the old sub navigation links which were located immediately below the top navigation bar. The old design required you to click on your main category such as “Plan A Trip”, and then would require you to click your subcategory link such as “Find a Campground”. Now you can find nearly all of the features available at GoodSamClub.com  in one click. To use this new feature, simply hover over the main category listing such as “Plan a Trip” (no need to click with your mouse just yet) and then move your mouse to hover over the desired subcategory link such as “Find a Campground”. Next click on this subcategory link to take you to your desired webpage.
3.) Top deals from the Good Sam Store: We want you to see how your membership saves you more by featuring the top specials in the Good Sam Store right on the homepage. New specials are highlighted continually so check back often for the most recent deals. To shop these deals, simply click the red “Buy Now” button to view more information on that product. Want to view more deals? Click the “Shop Now” link located to the right of the words “Good Sam Store”. Note, you will need to log into your online Good Sam Club account to shop the member-exclusive Good Sam Store.
4.) Good Sam News: Now you can stay current on the latest Good Sam News including Tech Tips, updates about the RV lifestyle, Chapter news, and more by simply visiting the Good Sam Club homepage.
5.) Events & Tours: View the next thrilling adventure that you can enjoy with fellow Good Sam members right on the homepage. To learn more about a specific event, simply click the “Learn More” link associated with the Good Sam Events or Tour. For a complete listing of the Good Sam Events and Tours, simply click the “View More Events” link located immediately to the right of the main words “Events and Tours”.
New & Improved Account Section
In an effort to make the pages of our website as easy to find as possible, we’ve added a dropdown menu which contains the main features of our “member profile” section. Once you’re signed in, this new dropdown feature will automatically appear beside your name. To view the drop down, simply hover over the black arrow located to the right of your name (no need to click), then move your mouse down to the desired listing and click to take you to the specific account page.
Once you’re finished with your session of browsing our website, you can Sign Out by hovering over the same black arrow beside your name listing, moving your mouse down to the words “Sign Out” and clicking to log you out of GoodSamClub.com .
Popular Features are Here to Stay(Please coordinate the numbers listed below with the numbers in the picture for placement references.)
1.) Easy-To-Find quick-links located in the upper left hand side of the Good Sam Club homepage. The Member Benefits and Featured Services links allow you to be one simple click away from your favorite pages on our website.
2.) Pictures speak 1,000 words. Look for our top rotating banners ads to show you what’s new and exciting with the Good Sam Club.
3.) Featured Benefits allow you to see the latest, most up-to-date benefits at a quick glance. If you would like more information on any of the featured benefits, simply click the image beside the benefit explanation, or click the hyperlinks which are noted by the underlined text. Want to view more of your member benefits? Simply click the “View More Benefits” link located at the bottom of the benefits, and log into your Good Sam Club online account to view a complete list of your personal member benefits.
4.) We’ve kept your Golden Halo Savings right on the homepage in an effort to allow you to view this daily deal from Camping World quickly and easily. And remember, quantities are limited, so act fast to ensure your member-exclusive savings.
5.) Featured Services: Stay in-the-know about the inside service deals Good Sam is currently offering to members.
6.) Featured Park: While every Good Sam RV Park holds a special place in all of our hearts, we can’t help to highlight some that simply go above and beyond the average camping experience.
7.) Stay on top of the latest deals and nifty camping gadgets with our featured Banner Ads.
Another feature that remains the same is the way to navigate to the Good Sam Club homepage. The Good Sam Club logo which is located in the upper left-hand corner of all of the pages on our website provides an easy way to get back to the homepage. One click anywhere on the logo will immediately take you back to the Good Sam Club homepage.
With these outlined improvements, we hope you find the Club’s website to be easier and more enjoyable to use than ever. We’re constantly looking to improve your user experience, so look for more exciting changes in the months to come.
