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.

What you need to know about advertisement impression?

What you need to know about advertisement impression?

By Patrick Hill @HGDMarketing

 

 

 

Advertising on social platforms and apps are the way to go for businesses. The problem you may have is understanding the operation of advertising on these platforms. When you first sign up for advertisement on both platforms, you must know advertisement languages, and it’s functions. The trick is to gather data to broaden your knowledge of advertisement. So, when you are applying information for ads of your business, you may need to know these things before you proceed to place an ad over the platform.

 

Impression is self-explanatory. You know what it means personally so it really doesn’t need much explanation. I am going to keep it simple. Impression is an idea, feeling, or opinion about something or someone, especially one formed without conscious thought or on the basis of little evidence. This is the dictionary term of impression. When it comes to advertisement term, impression is an ad that is fetched from its source. For instance, you place an ad for a hair growth product through twitter ads. The ad goes all over twitter based on the information you apply. Impressions are not clicks or sales remember that. Impressions is a counter. Basically, it counts how many users saw the ad without clicking on the ad.

 

You will also notice the impression estimate rate once you have completed the first set of information when you are setting up your campaign.  Remember that impression is as important as when you go out for a date, event, and interview. You want to make a good impression to the users in order for your ad to get conversions.

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.”
