Using a Scrapbook In Your Cookie Business

If you own a cookie business, you should have scrapbooks both online and offline of your creations.

I was blown away when I attended my cousins wedding and saw all of the various things that were done with cookies. Oreo cookies were dipped in a chocolate and then in white icing, the names of the bride and the groom were on the cookies.

I’ve also seen very large cookies with designs on the front of the cookies. One store advertises a very large cookie with white icing and then in pink the words “will you marry me?” Seeing a photo of this is much more of a sales tool than just a verbal description.

I have seen cookies in the shapes of a suit jacket, in the shape of a person and even in the shape of a 3-D rose.

I have seen icings in every possible color and I’ve seen multiple shades of icing on one cookie. I’ve seen large cookies and small bite-size cookies, along with everything in between.

For a new baby, I’ve seen cookies in the shape of a bottle, and for a birthday, I’ve seen cookies in the shapes of a balloon and a heart. For a wedding, I’ve seen cookies monogrammed with the letters of the wedding couple, and I’ve seen cookies shaped as red roses and left by each place setting.

Cookies on a stick are a favorite of mine. We’ve all seen flowers in a vase, but cookies on a stick in a vase always make me smile. What could be more fun than a dozen chocolate chip cookies on a stick, in a vase?

If you sell these items, you know my words are not doing the products justice. Words alone just can not sell cookie decorations like photos in a scrapbook can. Add some journaling. Let potential customers know what the various designs pictured were used for. I believe a scrapbook of your designs will help create more sales by allowing the customer to see visually exactly what they are ordering.

The LG Cookie is a phone with entertainment and business features. This handsome mobile from the makers of LG’s touch screen Prada seem to have done good research on the feature’s aspect before launching it onto the public domain. The phone with sheen and smart pocket fit makes it an above normal touch screen mobile. Hold on… you’ve to compromise with many other things. These include, below average digital zoom, not so good picture quality and Flash less 3.2-megapixel camera operations. But for all other things LG cookie is a cheap and smart option to explore for all your communication needs. Saying it right, this exceptionally good-looking phone is much cheaper than iPhone.

The mobile comes in astonishing finishes that would make your heart melt for the mobiles. The most popular of the finishes include elegant gold, Black, Anodizing Silver and Vandyke brown. The best thing that LG has done out her in Cookie is the transformation from the jerky plastic buttons to smooth pressing metallic buttons. These one touch metallic buttons ideally blend with the 3-inches touch screen and render it an artistic appeal altogether.

Cookie Rules

New Cookie Rules For Websites From May 2012

1.The Background– websites and email marketing are regulated in part by the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations. These were amended in 2009 with significant changes coming into effect in May 2011 but with a year’s delay on any sanctions being enforced for non-compliance.

The changes affect the way your business can use cookies and other tracking technology in both emails and on websites to collect user data.

Web owners will be liable to enforcement notices and a fine of up to £500,000 for non compliance from May 2012.

2.What Are Cookies? – there are different types but basically a cookie is a small file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded on to a device when the user accesses certain websites. Cookies may then be sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and track what the user does, although the legislation also covers the use of other technical means of doing the same job.

3.Does Your Business Use Them? – probably ‘Yes’ – especially if, for example, your site uses tracking systems like Google Analytics, or if you use a bulk email management service that monitors ‘opens’ via a cookie or similar. Also if your site recognises past visitors; uses a third party company’s service who may track users themselves (for example advertising), or, if you have an ecommerce site, you may use ‘session’ cookies to track purchases.

4.What Is New? – If you use cookies, you must now tell people that the cookies are there; explain what the cookies are doing, and obtain their valid and well informed consent to store a cookie on their device.

There are exceptions where cookies are ‘essential’ to your site operation, for example cookies used (a) to remember the goods a user wishes to buy when they proceed to the checkout or add goods to their shopping basket (b) for security purposes, or (c) to help pages to load quickly or to load balance across multiple servers.

But cookies used for tracking, counting email opens, recognising past visitors and advertising are ‘caught’.

5.What Do You Need to Consider? – you need to (a) check what type of cookies / user tagging you use and how you use them (b) decide if you are informing users adequately and if you need consent, and (c) where you need consent, decide how to best obtain consent.

6.OK, What Actions Do we Need to take? – the key actions are to make sure your cookie information is clearly and prominently available on your site, and not ‘buried’ in a Privacy Page. You may want to add a new header link mentioning cookie use.

You should add cookie use consent to any directly relevant existing sign up, e.g. for a newsletter where you will use it to monitor opens (e.g. Check this box to sign up to our weekly newsletter. By signing up you allow us to use Open Tracking to monitor and improve your email experience.) (b) to open (or login to) an account where you use a cookie for easy recognition of returning visitors, or (c) when the visitor is to click on a button requesting a third party service.

Use pop up boxes, message bars or ‘splash’ pages to gain consent prior to use – at least on the first visit. (You don’t have to repeat this every time, but you may need a new cookie to recognise visitors who have given consent!)
