There’s Something Cooking in our Kitchen

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

By Noam Reshef, Community Manager at ShopYourWay

Shopyourway.com is happy and proud to welcome Sandra Lee – the amazing host of two popular food network TV shows, a New York Times best-selling cook book author and editor-in-chief of Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade magazine.

And let’s not forget – she also has her own Kmart line of products!

Everyone’s invited to visit and follow Sandra’s official ShopYourWay page, and get the latest on her delicious recipes, great products and lots more.

Mutual fun

How can you make new friends? When it comes to social networks it’s about finding people who are into the same stuff you’re into. Clearly, if you both like the same things, you’re probably going to find some topics of conversation, right?

That is why one of our main goals is to get people with similar interests together on shopyourway.com. The latest and greatest is what we call “mutual boxes”.

Check them out on a friend’s profile page: each box essentially tells a story, about the items you and other users both own, about your interests, and so on.

There are also mutual help boxes – encouraging friends who own products to help friends who indicated they want those same items. This is the first step on the way to new friendships and helpful shopping advice.

We told you before – the new profile page is awesome!

Not the Same Old Story

We’ve got some new story types for you. We keep bringing news about the latest trends and items across the web in a variety of subject. This time we’re talking about four of those.

Video games are first. All the latest for you console cowboys out there.

Next up, for people who prefer the fresh air over playing Tekken in their living room. Outdoor activities will give you great tips about hiking gear and all that out-of-the-city stuff.

Lawn and garden is for you gardeners and home owners who like a little green around their house. And last but not least: Tools & DIY will help you keep the house in top condition.

What are you waiting for? Start reading and educating yourselves. And stay tuned.

What’s in the Box?

Last but not least – we upgraded the SHOP YOUR WAY REWARDS box on our homepage. Now you can get a clearer indication of your VIP status – and easily get your PIN number.

Even More News! Literally

This week We’re proud to present two important pages that got a major face lift and look oh-so much better. First there’s the partners page, which includes links to third parties collaborating with the SHOP YOUR WAY REWARDS program. They offer great deals to REWARDS members – a special benefit just for you…

Our Partners

Then there’s the account history page, showing SHOP YOUR WAY REWARDS members all of their purchase information in sharp black and white. Both pages look excellent!

The Latest (Additional) News

This is a bit confusing, as this blog is about the latest stuff on the site, i.e. news. But one of our new features is, well, even more news!

Way back when we added a new story type to the site – the buzz around consumer electronics. We brought you – and still do – all you need to know about the latest and newest items and trends. And since we liked it so much, we decided to take the next step and expand to other areas.

Starting now you’ll see on your feed the latest news about Health issues, Food and Groceries and Beauty. Our trusty algorithms are scouring the web to bring you all you need to know about how to eat well, stay healthy and look great. And this is just the beginning – we’ve got more on the way.

It’s About You

We’ve been hard at work on the profile page, and have got some cool stuff to show for it: the about tab. The idea is to present all the information you may need about the user in one place. It includes some personal info on the fellow shopper you’re visiting, some info on his activities on the site, some mutual friends and his catalogs.

It's what it's all about

Our goal is to help our users easily find fellow shoppers with similar tastes and interests, and make new friends. This is just the first step – the about tab is going to get even better – and soon.

And finally, a nifty new feature – clicking on brands in the left navigation will now open special menu top brands, as the default option, instead of directing you to a completely new page. It’s a small yet important change.

That’s it for now. Stay tuned.

 

United We Stand

As we told you in the previous post, the new profile page is where it’s at – all the cool stuff under one roof. And we have no intention to stop: We’ve added a couple of cool new features to your profile. Take a look.

First and foremost we added a nifty little tab called interests. The idea is simple and smart: all of the stuff you follow or showed interest in presented in one place, combining great looks with ease of use.

You can even filter those interests by brands, stores, categories etc. making it even easier and quicker to find what you want. Cool.

Another new tab is badges – we took the old badges page, gave it a bit of a face lift and added it to the new profile page.

Filter of Power

Now, let’s leave the new and glorious profile and move to the homepage. We have some exciting news there as well: filters!

Not sure what we mean? Take a look at the top of the page: you now have a list of tabs that let you filter the page and see exactly what you want to see. Want to check out images and videos only? No problem. Is it deals you’re after? Just click the right filter.

Two of those deserve special attention: the questions tab collects all question related items – polls, question asked by users etc. – in one place. The knowledge tab is a collection of user reviews, product news and Manage my Life articles.

You get the idea – maximum content at a minimal effort. Enjoy the site!

And stay tuned.

 

Hey, It’s The New You

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

By Noam Reshef, Community Manager at ShopYourWay

This week’s update is special – it’s basically about you. Yes, you. See, we’ve gone and turned your profile page into a new and wonderful thing, and we’re excited.

Gone is the old timid page of yesterday. The new profile page is slick and cool. It’s aligned with the rest of the different pages on the site, keeping things consistent and pretty. And most importantly – it’s easy to navigate and extremely functional.

Check it out: your basic info is on top, next to your profile picture – how many people follow you, the number of catalogs you own etc.

Under that you’ll find the tabs. First is recent activity – all the stuff you’ve been up to lately, plus the ability to post a status message, photo, video or product. Next to it is the personal info tab that lets you edit the info you present about yourself.

Next comes the catalogs tab, giving you access and control over your collection. and last but not least, there’s the “more” menu, that lets you tinker with the insides of the machine. See who asked to follow you, edit your personal details and so much more.

This is just the beginning: the profile page is going to get even better, giving you all the info and control you could possibly want. Oh yes.

And a New Way in

Speaking of slick and pretty: we’ve got a new sign in/register process, and it’s short and sweet. The screens are cleaner and clearer. The process itself is shorter and easier to complete. It’s like we built a shiny new highway leading to our place, so you all can come visit.

 

So come in and enjoy the site. Bring your friends along.

And stay tuned.
