However, there are some really tasty, smart and easy food and drink choices that will please your entire family.

Here are some of Tobys tips, ideas and recipes for simple and delicious meals, snacks and drinks for fall!

The matte texture and contrasting color of the column and base add a light-hearted, playful feel, and the carbonating bottle easily locks into place with a single-push motion.

Yahoo! and ShopSocially Present Strategies to Boost Conversion, Get Referrals and Generate 10X Social ROI

Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) November 10, 2014

ShopSocially, leading social, referral and retention platform and Yahoo! Commerce Central conducted a joint webinar on Oct 1st 2014 and revealed strategies to help marketers convert their customers into brand ambassadors, maximize referral traffic, boost conversion and acquire new customers. In this webinar, Samir Palnitkar, President at ShopSocially presented strategies which marketers should adopt to grow their businesses rapidly and achieve social ROI of 10x or greater.

Social media features by default in all marketing plans of todays marketers. But they are still often clueless on how to harness the true power of social channels like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Email effectively. To help marketers maximize their social ROI, Samir Palnitkar suggested how marketers can boost conversion, get referrals, and generate 10x Social ROI by employing the strategies described below:

1. Move to Viral Email Acquisition: Marketers should replace their traditional email acquisition widgets with Facebook Connect. ShopSociallys Social Connect app encourages users to share their Facebook profile in return for an incentive. Each connect results in a Facebook post adding virality. Besides acquiring the email address, marketers get the complete social profile of user. Rich social profile data like birthday, gender, location, interests, friends, etc. can be collected via this method. This results in generating deep social insights of your customers, and can be used to run customized campaigns.

2. Drive Customer Acquisition via Referral Programs: Most marketers know referral marketing but very few actually add a social flavor to it. For an effective referral program, reward your users for referring your site to their friends on social media. For maximum returns, make it a reciprocal offer wherein both sharers and their friends get a reward. ShopSociallys Refer-a-Friend app helps you enable this benefit for your site.

A referral program can also be added when customers have finished their purchase. Customer delight is at its highest point when the customer has completed the purchase. Referral marketing can convert this customer delight into brand endorsement. By offering a simple incentive to customers, they can share their purchases on social media and drive social referrals.

3. Drive Visual Commerce by Converting Selfies into Sales: Its a visual web today, and selfies are its best manifestation. Your customers are already sharing photos of your brand or products on channels like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc.

These photos can be aggregated to create a visually attractive photo testimonial gallery. Customers can be encouraged to share their selfies and pictures with a brand specific hashtag. ShopSociallys Photomonials app helps aggregate these photos into a nice visually attractive gallery on your product page which acts as social proof and increases conversions.

4. Use Social Login to Increase Conversions: In todays socially connect web, social proof is the new customer identity. With so many accounts across different sites, users experience password fatigue when remembering the login details across sites. Enabling login via social profiles like Facebook, Google, Yahoo! Amazon or Twitter ensures that users default social browsing behavior is extended to your site. ShopSociallys Social Login app reduces transaction/ cart abandonment rate by 46%, increases user engagement and drives sales conversion uplift.

5. Increase Loyalty by Rewarding Customers for Social Actions: A loyalty program is one of the surest ways of increasing customer loyalty and driving repeat sales from existing customers. But in todays social media dominated world, these loyalty programs now need to incorporate social.

Reward your customers with loyalty points for social actions on your site. This increases social engagement, enhances customer loyalty and drives repeat purchases. ShopSociallys Customer Loyalty App helps you employ this strategy for your site.

Marketers can boost conversion, acquire new customers, get referrals and maximize social ROI by embedding the above strategies on their website. ShopSociallys apps help convert your customers into brand ambassadors and turn your website into a word-of-mouth powerhouse.

The 5 must-have strategies can help marketers instantly turn their e-commerce website into a word-of-mouth powerhouse and achieve a social ROI of 10x or greater, said Samir Palnitkar, President of ShopSocially. Yahoo! Commerce Central provides client-side integration to marketers. Marketers should benefit from the easy integration of ShopSocially apps using Yahoo! Commerce Central and leverage it to maximize their social ROI.

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) October 22, 2014

Decorating the house for Halloween has grown to be second only to decorating for Christmas. Halloween items date back to the early 1900s decorations and costumes made from crepe paper, candy containers and jack-o-lanterns from Germany, painted tin noisemakers, and paper lanterns. These vintage Halloween collectibles are scarce because they were used and thrown out. They sell for high prices. But collectors who love Halloween should be on the prowl for decorations with fun graphics that will be future collectibles.

Here are five things (spookier than spiders) to look for now that will be sought-for and pricey collectibles in 25 years:

1. Special holiday bottles and cans. Soft drinks are sold in spooky containers. Crush soda has three new Halloween flavors, Gruesome Grape, Spooky Strawberry and Orange Ogre, that come in limited edition plastic bottles with scary faces, perfect for Halloween parties. And Jones Soda is bringing back limited edition Halloween flavors, including Candy Corn, Red Licorice, Caramel Apple, and Blood Orange in cans with portraits of Frankenstein, a zombie, a vampire and a werewolf. Enjoy the soda it’s a special occasion keep the containers.

2. Plastic “stuff” colorful 1950s and ’60s candy containers, figures, and jack-o-lanterns are inexpensive and easy to find. Look for hard plastic holiday-themed candy containers made by the E. Rosen Co. of Rhode Island, also known as Rosbro Plastics and the School House Candy Co. The candy containers are no longer made, but they’re charming and plentiful. Keep an eye out for contemporary plastic decorations with good design. Enjoy the candy keep the containers.

3. Zombies and vampires. There was a time when Halloween wasn’t about REALLY scary things like zombies and gruesome headless monsters. But tombstones and skeletons aren’t spooky enough anymore since zombies and vampires became popular TV and movie creatures. Look for plastic, rubber, or resin decorations like the zombie-hand candleholder. Scare guests now save for later.

4.Jewelry. Charm bracelets with pumpkins, bats, and black cats; jointed skeleton earrings decorated with rhinestones, and spider rings of all kinds are fun and easy to find. Wear now and save for later.

5. Motion- or voice-activated figures that light up or emit scary sounds and music. Have you ever jumped out of your skin when a fake witch screamed, crept, or crouched when you walked past? Life-sized pumpkin men, witches, vampires, black cats even just body parts like crawly hands can be found in any degree of “fun scary.” Startle neighbors now and save for later.

And save the paper or plastic masks, costumes, treat bags, and dolls as low-priced future collectibles to enjoy each October.
