We are pleased to announce some new updates released on TradingCradles.com today. With change and new features we always want to make sure we are only pleasing our amazing community, so if you care to share any feedback on the new updates please post a comment below.
The first new update is the BUY IT NEW feature
We’ve teamed up with Amazon Associates for the buy it new links. Now certain products listed for sale on TradingCradles.com will have the “Buy It New” link, this link goes to the product on Amazon.com and offers you the ability to buy it from Amazon. Additionally this is a good way to read the Amazon.com reviews on the product before you decide to buy it from our Trading Cradles sellers. We added this feature to help generate a little revenue for TradingCradles.com and to give parents the ability to quickly read reviews on products as well as give them the option to buy it new. If you’re a seller and you feel that having the buy it new link on your ad competes with your sale you can always opt-out by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will gladly remove it from your listing(s).
The ever so popular Facebook LIKE button
Now every ad listed on TradingCradles.com has the Facebook Like button. This will allow our parents to tell us what gently used deals they Like the most. We will aggregate this data and the most popular items for sale will direct our marketing efforts to get more of those items listed. Additionally Liking an ad shares it with your friends so they can potentially take advantage of the savings.
Pinning ads on Trading Cradles just got easier
With Pinterest.com becoming so popular within our core demographic and after receiving all the community requests to add a PIN IT button to our ads we listened and did exactly that. Now every ad on TradingCradles.com has a PIN IT button that will allow you to quickly share a deal on your Pinterest boards. Happy Pinning
Additionally we’ve made some big security enhancements to our back-end system, we can’t go into the details on this as it’s top secret but rest assured Trading Cradles number one priority is safety.
Again, our goal is to only add features to the website that make it a more pleasing service for you so if you have any feedback on these updates please don’t hesitate to post a comment below. We hope you enjoy the new features and we look forward to continuously providing a better service for the community.
Mother’s Day is not always a Hallmark Card or the image of a Norman Rockwell family gathering. Mother’s Day can bring some mother’s painful memories of their own childhood; heartaches from memories of a lost child; emphasize an on-going delicate problem between mother and child at the current moment, or create feelings of resentment and hostility if the day is steeped in obligatory motions.
Every family has their own problems, their own torments, their own joys. What makes one mother weep for joy at a simple hand-drawn picture of a flower will cause another abusive mother to berate the child for stupidity. Some mothers have a compulsion to show-off their gifts as in competition; others really want nothing but a couple hours of peace and solitude.
Wise children, who truly love their mother and want to honor her, will be successful no matter what they do. There is no substitute for strong mother-child relationships and lucky are the families who have been successful at building them. On Mother’s Day, they have free reign to do as much as they want!
Wise mothers, who love their children, but understand the demands of work and school and lack of funds, will be happier with a gift of a personal nature than one purchased in a store. She will probably be ecstatic at having dinner prepared for her, or be given a personal manicure or pedicure, or just an evening of fun and games with her children.
The simple truth about Mother’s Day is there is no “one size fits all” gift, service, saying, or action. The best way someone can honor their mother this year (if they truly want to) is to put themselves in her shoes and truly understand what she likes and what she doesn’t and act accordingly. This isn’t a competition day; it will not make you a loser (and them the winner) if your answer to someone on what you did for your mom was “a back rub,” when they bought a Mom’s charm bracelet for $300.
Trading Cradles wishes all you amazing Moms a Happy Mother’s Day!
