U.S. Money Reserve CEO To Soon Become Huffington Post Blogger

The Huffington Post is a very well-respected online media site that is read by millions upon millions of people. PR Newswire has just announced Angela “Angie” Koch is soon to become a featured blogger on the site. Koch impressed a lot of people with an article on the subject of women at the recent Republican and Democratic National Conventions.

Angie Koch is the current Chief Executive Officer at U.S. Money Reserve, one of the top distributors of gold, silver, and platinum in the world. The company has sold millions of precious metals assets to customers looking to expand their investment portfolios to include coins, bars, and/or bullion.

Running such a dynamic company requires solid business acumen. Koch possesses such exceptional knowledge and skill. Now, she will be writing on subjects related to business. Her blogging is sure to be both entertaining and informative.

The writing will not solely focus on precious metals or investing. Rather, the content is going to cover numerous different aspects of leadership and business success.

Per Biz Journals, The Huffington Post receives 79 million unique visitors per month. Koch’s writing is going to be presented to a huge audience. In addition to the readers gaining excellent advice and insights from Koch, U.S. Money Reserve is slated to receive a lot of outstanding publicity thanks to the work of Koch.

One very interesting subject Koch plans to write about is “company culture”. The topic is one that readers interested in learning about life in the business world do not always see published. Ironically, the topic can be among the most interesting covered. Learn more about US Money Reserve: http://www.goodsearch.com/us-money-reserve/coupons

A company – or corporate – culture can be best described as the identity or personality of a particular enterprise. Fitting in with a corporate culture is critical for employees and managers who wish to be successful. Not everyone has a strong ability to recognize or define a company’s culture very easily. By reading works that discuss the subject, a better understanding can be gained.

Then, there is another component to company culture: the creation of one. Leadership requires being able to perform a host of important duties and tasks. Crafting and inclusive and mission-supporting company culture is one of them. Maybe Koch’s writings will give insights into these unique duties.

Angie Koch is sure to bring the same exceptional skill to her Huffington Post writings as she does to her management of U.S. Money Reserve. Her blog posts are going to be very much looking forward to.

The Future of the Classroom Looks Bright

The addition to the ClassDojo app will surely be a great one as teachers are able to share these photos and videos with the parents of the student’s classwork, projects, and even field trips. The ClassDojo app has grown over the last few years in the United States and is now in two-thirds of all schools across the nation. This app has been a great addition to the learning experience and has helped many parents feel more connected to their child’s teacher and assignments.

Parents today are extremely busy and in most cases both parents work full-time jobs. Some parents even work multiple jobs and are just unable to make it to the parent/teacher conferences that are done quarterly. In the past, this has been the only time teachers and parents could connect and parents could get up to date information on their students. That has all changed with the ClassDojo app. This app allows the teacher and parent to interact like never before and this only leads to better communication along with better grades for the student. When the child comes home from school the parent is now able to know more about what they did at school that day and that in turn helps the child to perform better.

Having the ability for teachers to communicate with parents can ensure that the child is getting the best education they can and also involves the parent where the parent can help the child more at home in certain areas of learning that need improvement. This is greatly beneficial for the child and will only make learning easier for them. The child can gain confidence knowing some of their hard work has paid off and is being shared with their parent also.

The ClassDojo app is certainly changing the way teachers and parents interact and is a change that benefits everyone greatly. With the new Student Stories feature now the parents get to see firsthand what their child is working on and can feel confident that they are learning the classwork as they should. This app is one to have.

Helane Morrison: Life of a Compliance Officer

Helane right now works at Hall Capital Partners as a compliance officer. However, she has lived a highly active and effective year as a compliance officer who has made a huge impact on businesses. She has had a full career which started with her learning as much as possible about the industry with Harry Blackmun. She considers Blackmun to be one of the greatest influences in her career because he has fought for the rights of people who are often marginalized. He stood up in the face of threats. This has not only showed her the type of world she is going to deal with, but also how she can handle the opposition.

Helane Morrison believes in and works towards equality and diversity, which is one of the reasons that she has joined Hall Capital Partners. She has been impressed with the diverse leadership culture. Helane has also been involved in journalism. During the various job she has held in her career, she has fought a passionate fight against corruption and deception when it comes to corporations. This is especially true after the financial collapse of 2007 and 2008. She has seen that there is still a lack of trust in financial institutions even nearly a decade later.

Among the activities she has been involved in included the exposing of many of the predators or people that prey on and exploit the desperate and other financial dependents. When people have caught wind of all of the corruption that was happening in the industry, they have been concerned with how to pursue any action. It was Helane Morrison that had the confidence to proceed with action in order to get the institutions to act more ethically. She has went forward with the passion that has gotten the industries to work a little more ethically.

Can Desiree Perez Help Tidal Stay Afloat?

 

According to several sources, Samsung is once again in talks with Jay Z about possibly buying the over hyped and currently struggling streaming service Tidal. While no one really knows why Samsung wants to buy Tidal, word is they have something really big in the works and Tidal could be an integral part of it.

I.B. Bad, a HITS industry insider, believes Tidal may be losing over $10 million per year. This is in large part due to several exclusives that weren’t as successful as executives hoped they’d be.

What Is The Future Of Tidal?

Right now the future of Tidal is up in the air. And while no one knows what will happen next, what we do know is Desiree Perez, one of the toughest negotiators in the game, will be deeply involved.

At this point it looks like Samsung may have a little competition on their hands as both Google and Spotify have shown interest in the service. Both companies believe Tidal could give their streaming services a boost.

Spotify is more interested in a partnership and not so much an acquisition. They basically want Tidal to use their infrastructure to power the service.

One source was quoted as saying, “The pressure is definitely on.” They also made mention of the fact Tidal is struggling to pay royalties on time. As a result Jay Z has been forced to use his own money to keep the company afloat.

When Tidal first launched in 2015, the company was said to be worth $250 million. Now, less than 2 years later, the company is believed to be worth $100 million.

Neither Samsung nor Tidal have released a statement about this story.

Who Is Des Perez?

If asked to describe Desiree Perez in one word, it would simply be BOSS. She has been working with Jay Z for over 20 years and is considered one of his most trusted associates.

She has a hand in SC Enterprises, Roc Nation Sports, and now Jay Z’s latest project, Tidal. When it comes to crunching numbers and negotiating Desiree Perez is in a league of her own.

She has helped broker very lucrative deals for both Rihanna and Beyonce.

Now that Perez is working behind the scenes with Tidal, you can expect a lot of great deals to come down the pipeline.

White Shark Media Reveals Its Art Of Listening

Digital marketing agency White Shark Media unveiled what it has learned from its mistakes and emerged with an improved system for its customers. Learn more about White Shark Media Complaints: https://twitter.com/whitesharkmedia

The company is utilizing both its complaints and compliments to further advance and assist small businesses to be a success.

For example, one complaint took losing touch with adwords campaigns into account. White Shark Media acknowledged its reporting procedures were not sufficient enough to allow small business owners to evaluate reports.

In response to this complaint, the company assures that the small businesses are now alert to the full particulars of their new campaigns.

Positioning communication as a vital undertaking, White Shark Media heard from its customers that communication was not acceptable particularly as they initially were required to speak with a receptionist and not directly with their contact person. Learn more about White Shark Media Complaints: http://blog.whitesharkmedia.com/typical-complaints-from-white-shark-media-clients-and-how-we-make-sure-they-never-happen-again

The company addressed this issue by not only scheduling monthly status calls with online conference tool, GoTomeeting, but by allowing clients to call their contact person by adding phone systems with direct extensions.

White Shark Media also tackled the issue of old campaigns performing better than new optimized campaigns. The company has applied a greater value to the thriving aspects of clients existing campaigns.

For instance, should the client already have a well-performing campaign, White Shark Media Complaints team will take advantage of that until its programs begin turning out results.

In addition, experienced supervisors will provide information about reactions and supervise the running of all campaigns. This step will be accomplished by teaming up SEM strategists with a supervisor who will not be in charge of more than three to five SEM strategists.

And while many clients would like to have White Shark Media offer SEO services, the company will look over all SEO plans provided by its clients SEO company.

What’s more, many clients were unsure about tracking their AdWords Performance. To improve performance, the company has made an in-house process available which sets up conversion tracking, call tracking and in some cases Google Analytics.

For example, call tracking will be available through a partnering with mobile advertising analytics provider, Marchex.

To help with the transition phase, White Shark Media Senior SEM Consultants will work with clients from initial sign-up to the optimization process. They will also be available for questions even though they are no longer the primary contact.

White Shark Media emphasized the results have been highly useful and commended by many of its clients.
