Buzz it or Bash it? Clifford TIP Harris Open Letter, Love for Community vs Lyrics | Great Debate

August 21, 2014

Commentary: #12YearsaBlog at DryerBuzz, I’ve watched Clifford @TIP Harris grow up — through pain, gain, and loss. Like so many, @TIP has glimpse into manhood but no one to pull him fully into the role. Hence, we debate conflict of his lyrics vs his love for community. 

10462594_10152650893528470_5943975166349160458_nTip rarely says no when someone is on need. Yet his ability to provide comes from the streets. He’s a lifeline for his community but is music it’s killer? Can’t be both.
For all the MEN debating his conflict, reach out. Pull the brother fully into manhood — and his sons will follow.

My personal observation for future: time for TI to take over Atlanta’s movie scene. We love him on screen. Transition from reality shows to the big screen. Build a backlot in Fulton Industrial, hire Adamsville and let’s make ATL movies. Become next billionaire and not next Bumpy Johnson — whom we still debate daily. #Hairshebuzz

Letter excerpt:

“Look at us….America has created a monster. The result of ignoring & mishandling an already fragile spirited, recently enslaved, presently oppressed race/generation of people. Look at us. We’re the monster that now refuses to be dismissed, overlooked and ignored. We were brought to this place, unaware of our own cultures, religion & traditions therefore, we created our own. Now look at us.
For years we’ve been crying out for the nation to address the substandard education systems & disparaging treatment of our citizens in communities across America. Our people have had an increasing lack of opportunities for generations. There have been homes broken, lives shattered and futures lost on your watch….unanswered. Look at us. How long can u expect a nation/race/generation of people to be blatantly disrespected? Spoken to and treated with arrogant tones of insignificance. Our fathers, uncles, brothers and role models were killed and imprisoned more often than educated. Now look at us. Our friends and relatives murdered and cast aside without thought, as though your human life is more valuable than ours. How long can that go on without consequence? Now Look at us.

27Answers | Top 5 buzz making solutions most overlooked by small biz and entrepreneurs

August 9, 2014

In #27Answers to Create Buzz, blogger and author Yalanda P Lattimore tackled the 27 most frequently asked questions from small business owners and entrepreneurs as it relates to business, customers, networking and social media. But once you build it, and customers come, how do you get them to come back again and again?

Below you will find top 5 buzz making solutions most overlooked when it comes to turning customers into lifetime customers.  Try one or two or try them all — they’re all win/win.

5) loyalty cards: a loyalty card encourages repeat biz bringing customers back again and again. LCs offer incentives for return customers with each visit, such as a discount, or free item after number if regular visits. LCs can spark initial visit when incorporated into your business card. Be bold and offer increase discounts with each visit.

4) affiliate program: a bit of re-branding is needed for affiliate programs. At first glance they seem overwhelming to a small business or an entrepreneur. May appear to be more work than worth, but affiliate programs or worth their weight in gold.  Think of affiliate programs as referral or incentive programs.  Use as an incentive program for customers to earn cash back or other incentives for referring friends. Social media is a great tool to grow your referral program as links are shared and promote infinitely.

3) payment plans: don’t lose customers in a down economy.  Meet customers where they are by easing their financial frustrations with a few flexible payment options.  Payment plans allow you to maintain good standing relationships with customers while maintaining or even increasing receivables.  Payment plans manage themselves when using top apps like automatic billing offered through Paypal and other comps or membership sites. Money comes in regularly.  Merchandise goes out when paid in full.

2) memberships: turn customers into lifetime customers with a membership. The most successful business opportunities are driven from memberships.  Consider which part of your business, service, or products could you package into repeat services and sold as a membership.  Perhaps its a drop shipment or certain products, or subscriptions to certain services.  Which would make customers come back again and again and appreciate the ease of monthly automatic payments.

1) advertising and promotion: invest in promoting your business. If done right, the right promotion could actually cost you nothing as in FREE because increase in customers and sales would actually fully reimburse each expense (FREE).  If launching a tv, radio, or print campaign is too much, as an alternative,  think support local events as sponsors or advertising in special event programs like theatre playbills or community advertising circulars.  The investment is usually small, do not require long term commitments, but offer great shelf life which brings in customers again and again.
