Hackensack NJ, Former Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino resigned amidst controversy in September, triggering a special election last November to fill the three-year position. Had his resignation become effective days later, on October 5, Gov. Phil Murphy would have appointed an interim sheriff until an election for a full term in November 2019.

Bipartisan legislation, advanced today by the Assembly State and Local Government Committee, requires a vacancy occurring less than 70 days before a general election be filled by voters at the second succeeding general election. Sponsored by Assemblyman Christopher P. DePhillips and Assemblywoman Holly Schepisi, the bill (A4675) aligns the timeline for replacing vacancies in county sheriff, surrogate and clerk offices with other public offices.

Facebook tips for Ecommerce

facebook-lg1

H1 Facebook ads for ecommerce

You may have heard terms such as “ecommerce marketing platform”, “ecommerce ads” and some others. We have one new one for you – f-commerce.

What is f-commerce?

The point is that ecommerce deals with different channels and Facebook is one of the most popular among them. We have taken the first letter to name a new trend.

Facebook ecosystem has dramatically changed during last five years and now the platform is a great aid for consumers      making purchases on the Internet. Ladies and gentlemen, revolution of online selling has already started and gathering pace.

Why should one have a store on Facebook?

  • 600+ million of users all over the world;
  • an average profile counts up to 130-140 friends to share shopping experience, especially if we talk about opportunities to have quality goods for lower costs;
  • an average time of visiting is more than for Google and is almost 15 minutes per day;
  • nearly 70% of users visit brand groups on Facebook to know about sales and discounts in the store;
  • 15-20% of sales are made on social media for several enterprises;
  • the carts total cost is 10% higher in the network.

H2 Tips for making successful Facebook store

Use right images

Obviously, you should take only those photos that are of high quality. Those seemingly simple “users photo” are sometimes result of photographer’s great work.

Be careful with colours – white and blue merge with Facebook design and may become unnoticeable.

Use happy people on your pics, women are even better for posting than men.

Remember, people are scrolling very quickly the newsfeed, so your photos should be something different and unusual from what they see.

When you use people for the ads – do not take stock photo, professional unnatural images are instinctively tracked by clients and call no emotions. People prefer to see someone real like friends or colleagues.

Bet on interests

Initially Facebook was, and expected by users, to be the place for friendship ,not shopping. You can touch hearts of your audience when their interest correspond with your products.

Play with the tab “Interests” in your Facebook settings to see related groups and categories. Too sizeable interests can be too far from your real audience, try something narrower to find your customer.

Work with people who have already visited your store

Even if your ads are very convincing, only 1-2% will buy. You should work with previous customers to remind about your product and show ads specially designed for them.

Note: here your focus is on those who have visited your store, but haven’t made a purchase yet.

For example, you can offer a discount for the first order that is available for a limited time: “till the midnigh tonight”.

Talk to those who filled the cart, but left it

There can be different reasons of it. But people who already started thinking about your product, are more likely to finish what they started.

Your ad should contain an image of the order your client was planning to order. The quicker you will remind them about yourAs time goes by interest lessons..

Enticing customers into your place can be a puzzle, make it easy, you will need better prices, gifts and multiply  options for people.

Upsell the orders

Larger orders can become higher by at least two variants:

offer related goods to the order, i.e., a cover case for the mobile phone, earphones and so on;

offer a product of higher price, but of better quality.

Certainly, there are people that need only particular goods at that particular moment. But, there are also those, who simply didn’t know you have other items they need. Value added additions can increase your sale size and save a customer time in the long run.

In Need Of Legal Assistance? Check This Out!

Everyone faces a situation where they might need some legal advice or assistance at some point in their lives. With adult life, comes responsibility, and that entails financial matters, paperwork, and dealing with the complicated legal system that not everybody is equipped to handle on their own. That is why it’s important, in this day and age, to keep the contacts of a trustworthy lawyer or legal firm – you never know when you might need them.

If you’d like to know what a good firm should entail, then look into their history. In the US, for example, Ridgewood NJ is in Bergen County and Aiello Harris client serves all of Bergen County including their neighbors in Ridgewood through their Lyndhurst NJ location. A sense of community with your firm and their lawyers always adds a needed layer of trust and security. According to Aiello, Harris, Marth, Tunnero & Schiffman, ‘When your legal freedoms, health, or ability to earn a living are put in jeopardy, your entire life is seriously impacted’, and it may be difficult to narrow down who would suit you best in any given situation. This is why it’s crucial that you ask around and look at reviews of different lawyers and law firms in your area to be sure that you are investing in a trustworthy lawyer.

The Various Ways Lawyers Can Assist You

Whether the matter at hand is regarding taxes and licenses, intellectual property, real estate, family law and divorce, mediation, immigration or bankruptcy, among other issues, a reliable law firm will provide all the support you need. It’s never a bad idea to find a law firm that provides lawyers that cover a number of areas so that you’re not put in a position where you have to stress over where to get a lawyer every single time a different issue arises.

Not only do law firms often carry all the legal skills you need under one roof, but they also usually have significant insights, connections and influence in the local, regional, and maybe even national legal communities.

When to Seek a Lawyer’s Consultation

Hiring a lawyer is like seeing a doctor; although you can meet them for the first time after the problem has happened, a better approach is to familiarize yourself with a good one early on, just in case. Once you have been served with a summons or complaint, it is kind of already late; the dispute has already occurred, and now it’s only a question of how much it will end up costing you in court payments, attorneys’ fees, settlements and other expenses. Don’t squeeze yourself for time, where you may end up having to rush for a last minute lawyer, which may lead to going for just about anyone who would give you the time of day. Be prepared.

Asking the Right Questions  

The judicial system is complicated, and getting into a legal battle can cost you a lot of time and money – it’s quite the investment. That said, you are still the client in your law firm’s eyes, and you have the right to ask questions and get answers that will put your mind at ease. Don’t be afraid to ask direct questions about your lawyer’s experience; whether or not they’ve handled similar cases before; how flexible they are with their billing procedures; and if they will be invested in educating you about the legal nature of your specific case. These are all details that you will want to take note of before committing and investing in a business relationship with your lawyer, and which will come into play later on throughout your legal journey together.

Before Passing the Verdict  

If you think you need legal assistance, you will want to hire the right person or firm for your case. Most law firms today allow for a free consultation session to give you a chance to determine whether or not they are right for you, so use it wisely. Before making an initial appointment, invest some time in research; aim for talking to an attorney whose practice focuses on your type of legal question, or someone who lists it as a type of law they frequently practice. And remember to always ask questions, for it is your legal right.
