Angry Birds Stella to be Released September 4th

Angry Birds Stella to be Released September 4th
Rovio announced the next release in the Angry Birds franchise: Stella. She's a pink bird. Looks like they introduce some new characters to the crew, too. And Stella will get her own TV series, too, that starts in November. I wouldn't be surprised if a whole line of Christmas toys came out just in time for the holidays. They even have their own Pinterest page.

Here are the game's two trailers:

Custom Handmade Bobbleheads from 1MiniMe

Brought to you by the folks at 1Minime

Have you ever wanted to be your own bobblehead or give one as a gift? The folks over at 1Minime have hundreds of different models of bobbleheads available starting at $59.90. The most popular ones though are their custom bobbleheads. Submit your photo, confirm the proofs look good, and they'll send you a 100% handmade resin statue that looks just like you, or whoever's photo you submitted. They're great for gifts, too.

The process of creating a custom bobblehead is actually quite simple, for the buyer at least. Since they are handmade, the other end does the hard stuff. The most difficult part is picking which body to use. For some buyers I can imagine this being an easy step, like if they want a guitar player or kickboxer. Even something as simple as a soccer player has like ten choices.

Welcome to the $150 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway Event
Sponsored by Pure Crafted Beds
Pure Crafted Beds is a company who knows Beds. Their factory was started in 1946 and is still owned by the original family and into their third generation! They began by renovating porch furniture and mattresses in the 1940's, to a modern manufacturing facility located in Lansing, Michigan. They've been in business close to 70 years and have brought forth an amazing selection of products that will give you a great night's sleep. Your comfort is their business!

Each bed is "hand-crafted" and they always strive to provide the best value for each customer, whether at $299 or $2,999.

They carry two basic mattresses the TruEssence and TruSlumber. The only difference between the two beds is the core foam layer, and the TruSlumber bed does not have a base layer of foam. This helps reduce the overall height of the bed, which makes it perfect for children, bunk beds, and other situations where a thinner mattress is required!

However the unsurpassed quality remains the same in both!

What a Sweepstakes Can Do For You

What a Sweepstakes Can Do For You
Do you have a small business or are you working on a startup project? A sweepstakes can put your name in the spotlight without the costs of traditional or online advertising! It's one of the greatest branding tools available. Sweepstakes can help not only “test” a marketing campaign or product idea to a new audience, but it can also boost your social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, and wherever your sweepstakes is promoted.

Never has brand awareness been more important than it is now. Daniel Burstein explains at the Marketingsherpa blog that sweepstakes offer multi-layered benefits for the businesses that offer them. Imagine you work-from-home and need more clients. What better way to find new clientele than to run a sweepstakes for “Win 1 Free Hour of Work!” Or if you sell handcrafted goods, let’s say custom T-shirts, imagine a sweepstakes “Win A Free T Shirt!” and getting 100,000s of impressions on your brand, plus 1000s of email signups for your company, just for the cost of 1 t-shirt!

Sweepstakes gets your company name out there, which can help with lead generation, and product or service awareness. Plus, when the sweepstakes winners get public recognition as the “lucky winners”, you can bet that has a positive effect on your brand’s loyalty. And in some cases, sweepstakes can gain the company attention in the media! The sweepstakes network of websites can help promote your brand’s sweepstakes to exponentially more people, getting additional PR releases, social media traffic and inbound sales traffic for your brand!
