6 Must-See Dallas-Fort Worth Shopping Malls

Some of my out-of-town friends ask me which of the DFW malls are the best to visit when they come in for a shopping weekend. That’s kind of like asking, “Which of your children do you love the most?”

I like them all.

It’s hard for me to choose, since they each have a particular atmosphere, unique combinations of merchants, and even architecture.

Yet my friends would be expecting me to answer their question and help them out. As their friend, I would do my best. So I’m going to do my best for you.

We looked at things like architecture, variety of merchants, number of perimeter stores, but I also considered the “WOW” factor. It’s about an experience, not just shopping. So here is our opinion of the 6 must-see shopping center malls of DFW; 3 in the Dallas area and 3 in the Fort Worth area, in no particular order:

Galleria Dallas (Dallas area – Dallas): For sheer “Wow” factor, Galleria Dallas is impressive. Modeled after the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, Italy, it’s four levels ooze élan and luxury. There are one-of-a-kind high-end stores, but also a good variety of mainstream merchants.

Stonebriar Centre (Dallas area – Frisco): Stonebriar may have the most interesting exterior architecture of any shopping center mall in DFW. This open, bright mall has it all, and has the most children’s apparel merchants of any other mall.

Town East Mall (Dallas area – Mesquite): Town East is instantly recognizable by its large center structure that covers the center part of this huge shopping mall. Remodeling in 2005 added many stores and updated the interior. Town East resembles a large wheel, with the Food Court its center hub.

Grapevine Mills (Fort Worth area – Grapevine): Grapevine Mills has more merchants than any other shopping mall in DFW – 237 of them! If you can’t find it here, it probably isn’t made. Wear comfortable shoes, as the rectangular concourse is almost one mile around.

Southlake Town Square (Fort Worth area – Southlake): Although not an enclosed mall, it’s uniqueness makes it an experience unlike any other in this list. Southlake Town Square is designed to resemble a small town square, with the stores branching off onto small side streets. The best way to enjoy Southlake Town Square is to park your car, and take your time walking around, soaking it all in.

The Parks at Arlington (Fort Worth area – Arlington): In 2002, The Parks added 400,000 square feet of space, making it one of the largest shopping malls in DFW. More than just a place to shop, The Parks is a place to have fun, with an ice-skating rink, theaters and a carousel ride. Traffic around The Parks can be heavy at times, but the trip is worth it.

There are our top 6 recommendations – now it’s time for you to hit the mall trail and have fun!

10 Shopping Days to Christmas

Christmas is one of the most celebrated holidays on the planet.

And, with just 10 Christmas shopping days left, we can make this a festive holiday season without spending a fortune, giving to everyone and doing it all!

A simple quote that sums it up very nicely:

As we give presents at Christmas, we need to recognize that sharing our time and ourselves is such an important part of giving.

Gordon B. Hinckley

Here are four simple tips to manage your stress this holiday season:

1. Plan your budget. And it’s not too late to trim your list with just 10 shopping days left. If necessary tell people that you are cutting back on gift giving this year. To your surprise, they’ll understand and most likely feel relieved! Most of us have too many ‘things’ in our lives anyway.

They’d likely be happier if they knew you were giving a gift to a local charity.

Barrie Christmas Cheer Helps families in Barrie, Innisfil, Alliston, Oro-Medonte, Angus and other surrounding communities in South Simcoe County.

2. Make time for others – your relationships with others is the greatest gift of all and provides timeless and priceless memories. Cherish those moments! Planning a party – do the shopping with a helper and catch up while you plan the event.

Christmas is a time for everyone to give, not just you.

3. Engaging family members in helping with the chores could mean all the difference between you enjoying Christmas or simply enduring it. Baking, cooking, preparing and decorating for your festival celebration is another opportunity to multi-task. Take advantage of this situation where you can catch up with friends and loved ones. Play some Christmas music, chat, laugh and catch up. Many hands make work light and lots of fun.

4. Take time for yourself. Make time for quiet, relaxing activities. Going to the spa is wonderful but a long hot soak listening to your favourite music or just enjoying some peace and quiet could also help to regenerate your soul. It’s even okay to disconnect from technology. Cell phones and computers have off buttons. Say no to the distractions. If it’s really necessary for someone to connect with you they will call on a land line or drop in.

Keeping things simple, spending time with friends and loved ones and asking for help can make this Christmas truly a celebration to remember.

Merry Christmas Everyone and a have a Happy and Prosperous 2018.

Safety Tips for Shopping Online

Credit card fraud seems to be everywhere, and thieves love using the internet to steal people’s credit card information, due to the anonymity it provides. Many consumers think the only way to protect themselves is to just avoid shopping online all together. Although that is one way to avoid one’s credit card information from being stolen, it also means one can never shop online again. The online marketplace for goods and services is growing at a rapid pace because consumers know they can quickly find the best deals when shopping online. By just not shopping online anymore, one would be giving up on all these great deals. Using this method to avoid credit card fraud is like deciding never to fly in a plane again to avoid terrorists. True, one would not become a victim in any terrorist plot that involved planes, but that also means having to deal with the inconvenience of not being able to fly when traveling. Like anything else in life, the key is not to avoid the problem, but to understand the problem and to adopt a smart strategy to minimize the risk of being a victim to credit card fraud while shopping online.

First, let’s talk about steps one can take if credit card fraud has already happened. There is no need to panic. Once the cardholder reports that his or her credit card information has been compromised, the credit card company will not hold the cardholder liable for any fraudulent charges, even for charges made before reporting the credit card information has been stolen. The credit card company will shut down that card from further use and issue a new card in about a week or two, but this is still an inconvenience most people would still rather not want to deal with, if possible.

Next, online shoppers could utilize Google’s Safe Browsing Tool to check if a website is safe to visit, assuming one trusts Google of course. This tool will report if a website is suspicious or not, when Google last scanned it, if the website done anything suspicious in the past, and report if it is linked to any suspicious websites even if the site itself is not doing anything suspicious. To see if a website is safe, simply copy and paste “http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=” into the address field on the browser, and then add the url of the site to be visited. For example, to a company’s website, just enter “http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=websiteurlhere.com” into the address bar of the browser being used. Once this is entered, Google’s tool will bring up a simple half page report on whether the site in question is in fact safe or not.

Another layer of protection one can use when shopping online, is to use trusted 3rd party payment methods. Just about everyone has heard of PayPal. They are probably the most widely used 3rd party payment method in the world. They allow for customers to make payment for goods and services through them. For example, this means when a customer buys something, she is not directly paying the website that she is shopping on. She is paying the amount due to PayPal, and then PayPal pays the merchant, which means the merchant never sees her credit card information and her credit card information was never transmitted over the internet during this transaction. It does not matter if the customer shops at one website or a hundred websites. As long, as a 3rd party payment method was used, credit card information was never transmitted so, that information is not floating around on online at each website a purchase was made. Other 3rd party payment methods similar to PayPal include, Google Wallet and Amazon Payments.

Armed with this information, online shoppers can now make sure the websites they visit are safe to shop on, and also avoid entering sensitive information when purchasing. So, there is no need to pass up all the great deals when shopping online due to fear of credit card information being stolen.

How to Shop Online – Online Shopping Tips

Online shopping tips are not something that should be underrated or brushed aside. Online shopping is convenient, sure, but if you’re relatively new to online shopping then there are some tips and tricks that you should be aware of to make sure you get exactly what you ordered.

Now, I’m not saying that online shopping sites are out to trick us, however, I am saying that shopping online is not like shopping in person. And, if you don’t want to be stuck with something that doesn’t look anything like what you ordered then you’d do well to go through this short read.

Our online shopping tips cover the following points:

  • Reading reviews
  • Reading product specifications
  • Buying guides on site

Online Shopping Tips #1: Read User Reviews

User reviews are underrated but should be your first resource for checking up on many things like the product quality, availability with the seller you’re buying from, the fit and sizing and much more.

It should be the first place you check and should influence your buying choice. Many retailers also offer review aggregates online, which means that they’ll collate product reviews from multiple sources. This is helpful, but you should base your decision on user reviews, which is posted by users who actually bought the product.

Go through a few and keep an eye out for fake reviews; websites and sellers often resort to this underhand tactic. So, check the difference in the count of positive and negative reviews. A sizeable difference means that the general trend is accurate. A user review count difference which is not substantial may conversely reflect something fishy, so check out other websites too.

Online Shopping Tips #2: Read Product Specifications

I know this is one of those things that you assume the seller has manipulated, but it’s also the one place where the seller is actually telling you about the product. Also, for electronics or clothing, you should definitely not ignore this section. So, if you think the deal sounds too good to be true, then the product specification or description is the one place you should check to see if what you think you’re getting is actually right or not.

If the description is non-existent or too short then you can post questions, call the customer support of the website or check on the internet to see if other places are offering similar deals. Unlike what newcomers to online shopping might think there will not be a huge price difference in the product you want to buy across multiple websites, so if you see a big difference on only one website, then there could be something you might want to check further!

Online Shopping Tips #3: Buying Guides

Most top websites offer buying guides that are tailored to their product assortment. Most of the info is some thing that you can find on the internet anyways, however you should listen to what the best practices are the website states while choosing products from that website.

So, if you’re buying clothing, then buying guides are absolutely essential and you should prefer the ones on the website you’re actually buying from.

Conclusion:

So, there is nothing to it. Online shopping is easy and fun and also convenient. In addition, you’ll never be able to get the number of choices in a store that you get online; especially when online websites allow international sellers to transact on their website.

Thus, like it or not; online shopping is the future. Sooner or later everyone will need to wrap their heads around this concept. Fortunately, it’s simple and if you stick to credible websites you can be sure to be safe.

However, be sure that the website you are relying on is credible. Malicious users and websites will make sure that they appear legitimate to even the most discerning of users. But, by just spending some time shopping and getting to be familiar with the internet, you will be able to figure out which sites you can trust and which you should not, if you happen to land on one.

9 Downsell Campaign Offers to Get Abandoned Shopping Cart Contacts to Buy From You

Shopping cart abandonment is a huge problem that leads to lost ecommerce sales.

Shopping cart abandonment is when a prospective customer who starts the process of buying a product or service online, but then drops out before buying.

Shopping cart abandonment can be as high as 80 percent. In one study by Barilliance, shopping cart abandonment rates were 77.24% in 2016 and 78.65% in 2017. That’s over three-quarters of consumers that land in the shopping cart. The rate is over 80 percent among mobile users.

There are many reasons why consumers abandon shopping carts. Unexpected shipping fees, long and confusing process, too many clicks and pages, plus website errors and crashes.

Yet all is not lost if you have a downsell campaign. In fact, a downsell campaign with good sales offers can help you recover these lost revenues and get the consumer back to buy.

A downsell campaign occurs after a prospective customer abandons a shopping cart or order page. It involves a series of emails each with a link to a distinct landing page with a new offer. This new offer fulfills the customer’s needs and wants while lowering their perceived risk. In some cases, it reduces the price of a product or service.

While you can have downsell offers for all types of contacts, they are best to use to convert a lead into a new customer than an established customer. That’s because some customers will take advantage of your strategy, causing you to lose profits.

Here are 9 downsell campaign sales offers you can present to consumers who abandon their shopping cart.

Downsell Campaign Strategy #1: Free Trial Offer

A free trial sales offer lowers perceived risk of buying. It enables the customer to experience the benefits of the product or service. Then when the trial period is over you charge their credit card if they did not previously cancel. The two drawbacks are NOT getting paid in advance and potential loss of sale if the customer cancels. At least you’ve got them back to try it.

Downsell Campaign Strategy #2: Offer Same Product at Same Price Plus Add a Bonus

Adding a bonus to your offer increases the value of the deal. The customer can feel they are getting more from you, so their perceived value is higher. The thing is you can be creative with the types of bonuses you offer. It can involve a complimentary product or service, a consultation, educational product or event.

Downsell Campaign Strategy #3: Offer the Same Product or Service at a Lower Quantity

By offering the same product at a lower quantity, such as size, the customer wins by getting what they want for less cost. You win by earning a customer and lowering the quantity you give for a lower price, so you can earn a profit. This strategy enables you to develop a loyal customer rather than losing them entirely.

Downsell Campaign Strategy #4: Coupon For Next Offer

Offer a coupon for their NEXT purchase if they buy now. For example, if you have an eBook you sell for $30, then offer the contact a 10% off next purchase of any product if they purchase the eBook for $30 now. There is little risk to you because you get full price for the first product sale.

Downsell Campaign Strategy #5: Offer Same Product For Less at Prompt Redemption

You could offer the same product at a lower cost. But with a twist that they must take you up on your offer now or it expires. The customer wins by getting a better deal. You win with a new customer. You’ll gain profits by selling to the customer in the future.

Downsell Campaign Strategy #6: Offer the Same Product With Discount Plus Bonus

Here you give them two things they did not have before. First, they get a discount on the same product. Plus, they receive a free gift. The customer gets a double win. Greater value at a lower price. You win by getting a happy customer who can buy again from you. If your sales offer is a digital product bonus, then there’s no added out of pocket cost after the first creative fee.

Downsell Campaign Strategy #7: Offer a Different Product or Service at a Lower Quantity

You could have a sales offer for a different but less costly product that may satisfy the customer. The customer wins by getting a product at a lower cost. You win by getting the customer.

Downsell Campaign Strategy #8: FREE Shipping

FREE shipping is a cost saver to the customer if you sell a physical product. The cost of shipping is an expense that can offset your tax liability. The upside is you get a customer with potential for future sales and repeat orders. Shipping costs are among the biggest reason for abandoned shopping carts. A sales offer with FREE shipping can get the customer to buy.

Downsell Campaign Strategy #9: Double the Offer Plus a Bonus

This strategy appeals to customers who want greater value, rather than lower price. Not every prospect walks away from an initial offer because the price is higher than what they want to spend. Some prospects have money, but want greater value. Doubling what you sell – or increasing quantity – can boost customer perceived value. When you add a bonus on top, they see they get more than what you offered the first time.

In summary, an abandoned shopping cart is very common in ecommerce. But you can recover some of these lost sales with a compelling sales offer that gets these contacts back to buy.

Top Benefits of Shopping for Jewelry Online

Gone are the days when buying jewelry required hours spent with a marketing person who has only a handful of pieces in the store. Today, buying them online is as easy as just pick and click and the choosing at the tip of your finger dominates the offline retailers. Online shopping for jewelry that remembers your special occasions brings nothing but advantages to you as a buyer in at least 5 distinct ways.

Saves more money

Of any transaction, the price is a factor and it emerges largely when you are buying them, whether it is a costume for your kid’s school play or a diamond neck piece for a wedding present. Shopping online saves you more by giving you a detailed price information and making it easy to compare what other retailers charge for the same items. As a buyer, you can open multiple tabs in your system, each with an item you are willing to buy and directly compare prices.

Easy comparison

Searching for your favorite piece in various tabs helps in another way; it allows you to compare similar items side – by – side. This is not possible in – store shopping experience. To compare it at a traditional store, it might need some assistance and what gets shown might not represent the complete range of options. For instance, a simple gold ring comes with so many variations that no one store can fulfill your requirement. Online, finding the right piece you need is as simple as typing the keyword. Various jewelry retailers make it easy by offering a search bar on all pages. You just have to drill down their category.

Everything will be in stock

This is another area where online shopping for jewelry excels over in – store purchases is in the high probability that the piece you are looking for is in stock and ready to ship. A retailer might run of that particular piece you have set your heart on, but online jewelers are not limited to the stock.

Shopping at your own pace

Buying gold jewelry is potentially a huge – ticket purchase, and feeling rushed to purchase makes for a rewarding experience. Even if your offline store rep is being mannered, there are still a certain pressure to purchase quickly and go, which can end up to hurried decisions. This pressure is avoided when you shop online. Shopping on the web can be done in private, away from outside tension and without any sense of commitment.

Bundling orders together

Purchasing multiple items at once might be a headache in an offline store. Even if the retailer you visit, has that piece you were eying on but you might not be able to find the type of brooch or pendant you are looking for. Purchasing online gets around this situation by letting you purchase for as many pieces as you need and then bundling them together into one transaction with low shipping cost. Online retailers do offer free shipping for orders above a certain amount.
