What startup communities can learn from the Black Wall Street | Anthony Frasier | TEDxBarnardCollege

What do Silicon Valley and Tulsa, Oklahoma have in common? More than you could ever imagine. Over the past one hundred years both have been home to entrepreneurial multi-millionaires. And though comparatively fewer have heard about The Greenwood District in Tulsa, otherwise known as “Black Wall Street;” Anthony Frasier showcases how the fabric of this once vibrant ecosystem laid the groundwork for innovation and growth all over the United States. Inspired by his predecessors in Oklahoma, Frasier’s TEDx weaves a story of a determined entrepreneur from Tulsa to Newark, who would eventually co-found The Phat Startup and breathe new life into a U.S. community.

“Anthony Frasier is the co-Founder of The Phat Startup, a media company that produces resources for entrepreneurs.
His work has been featured on CNN Money, Forbes, Black Enterprise, and Black In America. Frasier was also named an innovator by AT&T which led to a spot that aired to millions weekly and was praised by The Washington Post. A serial entrepreneur, Frasier founded the startup Playd and award-winning gaming site, The Koalition. Frasier is actively involved in Newark, NJ, helping aspiring entrepreneurs. His initiatives have been recognized by the Business Outreach Center and he was granted the Award for Community Impact in 2012.”

How to Start a Business with No Money

 

I have been running my own businesses now for over 13 years, and during that time I have been approached by countless people all asking me pretty much the same thing, and that is, “how do I become successful in business?”

If you ask 100 people that question, you are going to get 100 different answers. This is because most of the people you ask are going to talk to you about a specific business model, sales idea, or marketing tactic, etc…

In my opinion, the answer is simpler than that; however, I can’t actually take credit for the simplicity of my answer.

Back before I started my last company, I was given some business advice that, at the time, I thought was the dumbest thing I’d ever heard. It didn’t make sense to me, because I wasn’t yet in business.

Years later, I’ve come to realize that it was some of the smartest advice that I’ve ever received. I say this, because, after following the advice, I ended up building a company that I sold for $1.2 million back in 2008.

In the video post below, I share with you exactly what this advice as, as well as how I put it to use in my own business, and, it is my hope that, after watching this video, you will do two things; share the video with others, and take my advice to heart.

Why the only future worth building includes everyone | Pope Francis

 

 

A single individual is enough for hope to exist, and that individual can be you, says His Holiness Pope Francis in this searing TED Talk delivered directly from Vatican City. In a hopeful message to people of all faiths, to those who have power as well as those who don’t, the spiritual leader provides illuminating commentary on the world as we currently find it and calls for equality, solidarity and tenderness to prevail. “Let us help each other, all together, to remember that the ‘other’ is not a statistic, or a number,” he says. “We all need each other.”

YouTube has over a billion viewers each month. It  is an open platform for creators, filmmakers, etc. The best platform for networks to search out talent and also advertisement. Major companies use YouTube to advertise their products and services. As well as share profit with YouTubers as sponsorship. Now, YouTubers are integrating advertisement within their videos than a five to two minute ad break from their sponsors.  The reason why they are integrating advertisement is because they are getting paid to assist other brands to get audiences.  Brands that are not corporate but small businesses that needs awareness. It is important to understand the cost that companies spend on advertisement each month. YouTubers with mass subscribers and viewers are becoming marketing channels for businesses that are trying to grow their demography and geography.

 

The great thing about it is that YouTubers are accepting offers from outside which is a local Pizza joint or small retail boutique store. The thing is they have the leverage of asking price for their service. They can dictate reasonable cost per week or month of promoting your product through their video content. The thing is how much is reasonable for advertisement with a YouTuber, it is based on what they see as reasonable. It can be $500 to $5000. You never know. The benefit of teaming with a YouTube influencer is a plus.
