  • AMERICA -- Here is what you really are
    by Roger Madison Jr. inOur Community on2018-06-28

    I struggle to empathize with those Americans who find themselves suddenly in a country they don’t recognize because black, brown, and red people have been telling you the whole time where you are.

  • Let Me Be FREE!
    by Carl West inOur Community on2018-06-25

    I've had several conversations over the last few weeks or so about the definition of being FREE. This one particular discussion that took place over the weekend really touched my soul and nearly brought me to tears thinking about its reality. I've been asking this question as part of a personal survey I'm conducting. There have been people from all walks of life in which I've asked what does it means to be FREE. I also asked if they considered themselves FREE? I found the answers in some cases...

  • White Supremacy
    by Scott Woods inOur Community on2018-06-18

    If we know nothing else about white supremacy it is that it possesses a fluidity second to none in the political realm. Of all the tools that exist to run a society, white supremacy is the Swiss army knife of value systems: more flexible than religion, more widespread than nationalism, and more insidious than patriarchy. It is a system so chameleon-like that most direct answers about how to combat it are easily dismantled because they don’t apply to enough situations to make a difference in...

  • Redacted Racism From The Executive Level | I'm Stronger Than Fear
    by Torin Ellis inBusiness Advice on2018-01-18

    This is a post that reminds recruiters and readers that often ask me “why do you focus on diversity” or say “haven’t we talked about diversity enough?”  A post for those who suggest  Affirmative Action, EEOC, D&I initiatives, and the various reports from Silicon Valley are enough.

  • What to the African American is the 4th of July?
    by Roger Madison Jr. inPolitical on2017-07-04

    What is the meaning of the 4th of July to Me?There is a rhetorical question, and there is a personal answer. It is easy for each of us to ask the rhetorical question. The conduct of our daily lives provides the personal answer. This question has been resonating among Black folks since Frederick Douglass famously asked in 1852, "What to the slave is the 4th of July?"

How to Profile Your Business for Profits Online Part 1

Let's Delve Deeper into Digital Profiling as a Point of Promotion.  More and more it is becoming important to build your brand online with a pervasive digital profile.

Having a website isn't enough anymore.  You have to be seen on a myriad of marketing channels on the net.

If You want to more than survive but actually thrive online, Search and Social media should certainly be hotspots in your promotional efforts.

Search engines are the starting point for most Internet users looking for information, products, and services online.  The major players in search are of course Google, Bing, and Yahoo!

Google has the largest market share in search (depending on the source you read) at about 49% to 63% of all searches.  Newcomer Bing is giving Yahoo! a run for its money in search.

There are rumors that Microsoft will be purchasing a portion of Yahoo! and getting rid of its search engine in favor of Bing.  Right now Yahoo! search and Bing are vying for the number 2 position.  Social media is another hotspot based on stickiness.

Stickiness is the amount of time a person spends on a site.  In contrast some sites receive lots of visitors but they only spend seconds viewing the site.

Social media sites have the ability to make people spend a lot of time on them in an almost addictive fashion.  So Google is the leader when it comes to site traffic but social media site Facebook is keeping people engaged very long on its site with interactivity.

Billions of people use Google every month while hundreds of millions more and more are spending their time on Facebook .  To get traffic to your website you have to have a presence on high traffic web destinations like Google, Facebook, Bing, Myspace, Youtube and Yahoo!

This essentially is what having a digital profile is all about.  The vortex of your digital profile should be your website.

However you need more than a website to survive and thrive online.  You need a presence on high traffic destinations leading to your site.  This is what a digital profile is all about.
