More Pages for You!

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

By Noam Reshef, Community Manager at ShopYourWay

It’s page frenzy over here: we keep rolling out new page types and connecting them all together.

What’s up this week? Well, we’ve got new special pages for places – that hotel you just stayed in for example, or your favorite Kmart store.

Park Hotel

We’ve also got topic pages, created automatically from stories in our site. Say we just published a story about redecorating houses. Want to learn more or discuss with fellow shoppers? Go to the newly created redecorating topic page. Great, isn’t it?

Not only that, but we’ll help you discover specific pages that we know you’ll like. You’ll get recommendations to follow pages according to your tastes and interests in the suggested activity box on the right rail. You’ll also see related pages in your favorite brand or clique page. It’s one smooth seamless experience

Games, Fun and Mobile

We didn’t mention sweepstakes for a while, but rest assured they’re still here and going strong. Check out the new ones we just uploaded – it’s fun!

Also, on mobile: you can now post stuff on your friends’ wall. You can also delete a status message you published with an elegant swipe of your finger. Almost makes you want to delete stuff for the heck of it. Enjoy!

 

 

The Rise of the Brand Pages

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

By Noam Reshef, Community Manager at ShopYourWay

Continuing last week’s momentum, we rolled out some more features enhancing the abilities of page admins across the site. We’re giving away super-powers here, people.

Handymen clique

This week is about inter-relations, and how things work together. Here we go: brand owners will now be able to post on other pages under the brand identity. Example: if you’re managing the Craftsman brand, and see a discussion on the Handymen clique page you can post a relevant status as the brand. Easy and practical.

Users get a say too: they can now tag catalogs, which will in turn appear under a special tab in the brand page. Say you created a catalog of your favorite EA video games and tagged it with the EA brand. Lo and behold: it will appear in the brand page, under the community catalogs tab.

That’s not all. You’ll start seeing recommendations for pages based on your actions on the site in the right rail. You’ll also start seeing links to related pages on your favorite brand page – all a part of our effort to make your life easier and more interesting.

Scan This

New on the mobile front: you can now use our app to scan QR codes – you know, those black and white rectangles that you scan with your smartphone to get all kind of nifty offers, videos etc directly to your phone. Start looking for those in Sears and Kmart stores.
