What is interesting to me is the fact that both Internet Explorer and Firefox have both dropped in terms of usage. IE is seeing a study decline in usage which had originally been because of the growth of Firefox. However, with Firefox in decline its clear that the reason for both of these dropping off is now Chrome. In the last month, Chrome has seen a 5% increase in usage. 2) Speed. Even Firefox.

Nothing is black and white, especially marketing. However, for the most part, outreach marketing is not a philosophy that encourages at scale operations. Read more here.

    [Blog] Pre-Launch: Awareness and Relationship Building
    Launch a blog/newsletter/e-mail series on the topic.  'The first people that join a community will do it through a commitment to you, not a commitment to your mission.    For this to happen, people need to know and trust you. This means increasing awareness and building relationships.   It’s hard to launch a community for an audience that doesn’t already have strong relationships with your team. You can’t launch it and hope for the best. You need to begin building awareness and trust months before you open up the platform. Participate. Create.   Interact.

    Website/Blog: www.BlackEnterprise.com. As we all know, February is Black History Month. It’s a month where we honor those who have made an impact on American culture for equal rights, those who have invented, those who have a helped others and those who have inspired everyone to be the best they can be, not only as a person of color but as a human. Last year for Black History Month, I started an online series called 28 Days Diversity where I would feature someone new everyday during the month of February for just being awesome in their own right.
