You Can Visit Loved Ones In Correctional Facilities Through Videoconferencing With Securus Technologies

If you have a loved one who is doing time at a correctional facility and you want them to still be a part of your Christmas celebration, you can do so through a video visitation platform. Instead of having to travel miles out of your way and wait to be cleared to visit your loved one, you can bring them to the comfort of your own home through Securus’s video visitation platform. Securus video visitation only requires that you have a webcam and internet connection, and you can signup for any time that’s convenient for you and your loved one.


Video visitation is becoming important for inmates and their families. Now young children can share moments of their childhood in real time with a parent who might be doing time, and inmates who simply want to do their time and get through their sentence are given encouragement throughout their time. Video visitation can also save money for families and inmates by eliminating travel expenses and other costs that come with traveling.


Securus Technologies has included many other inmate communication platforms along with video visitation. They’ve been servicing corrections facilities since 1986 covering thousands of locations not only in Texas, but across the nation. Securus’s technicians are highly trained, and even just recently some have enrolled in the BICSI Installer 1 program for installing telecommunications media. Securus has built a reliable system that keeps inmates connected to their families, and corrections officers on the alert.


Securus has rolled out inmate tablet systems that are secure and can connect to commissary purchases, enrolling in online courses, and purchasing prepaid phone minutes. Securus’s platform also allows them to receive electronic messaging, voicemail, and electronic deposits. Securus closely monitors communications through the THREADS and Investigator Pro software, ensuring that no threats or illegal activities are taking place.


Lip Balm Market Offered Opportunity for Small Player

The lip balm market offered small operators the ability to quickly expand and take advantage of the opportunities in the market. The lip balm market was ripe for opportunity with the major industry players neglecting the industry and trying to monetize their holdings rather than to simply innovate and provide what customers were looking for.

The biggest lip balm maker was Chapstick which was owned by Pfizer. Chapstick is just a small subsidiary of Pfizer and not one of its main business lines. As such, finding a way to profit and expand it was not its focus. They were instead using it as a cash cow.

Then, as is outlined in an article in Fast Money, EOS, a small start up at the time, was able to embrace the needs of their customers and came to be a major player in the lip balm market. Basically, EOS listened to the needs of their customers and decided to make a product that fits their tastes. EOS lip balm product was one with all natural ingredients that was designed to be enjoyable to the tastes of consumers with interesting flavors like Honeydew, and which provided for a lucious and smooth application hence the name “Evolution of Smooth” (EOS). They then went to work choosing an applicator that delivered the premium lip balm to their customers.

Their specially designed applicator orb stood out on shelves and even on Amazon, consumers snatched up the new colorful lip balm wherever it showed up in stores. This success led them to become a major player in the lip balm market and has made EOS a real success from their start as a small company into one with a quarter of a billion of sales each year. This all goes to show the success a company can have when they listen to the customers in their industry and design a product that meets their needs.

How the Pull out of Pemex from the Mexican Offshore Oil Development Business will affect Cotemar
Mexican media recently announced that Petróleos Mexicanos Pemex was going to cut its expenditures to adjust their budgets to the 25 dollar cost per barrel of oil.

Cotemar is enthusiastic that the challenges in Mexico will get better soon and that it will be able to recover Mexican oil markets.

Billy McFarland, The Modern Entrepreneur

Billy McFarland started his first business at the age of 13, a small, but effective program to find customers for a local business. While he was a freshman computer engineering student at Bucknell University, he started a company called Spling which helps businesses increase their internet presence by the optimization of their content. Spling is still an ongoing business, with McFarland at the helm as CEO. Clients include Discovery and Universal.

According to INC, Billy McFarland founded Magnises, a New York City platform strictly for millennials, allowing them to receive very attractive discounts at many of their favorite restaurants, bars, clubs, events, travel excursions, and special occasions. For the modest annual membership fee of $250, a member receives “The Black Card.”

All of the member’s pertinent information is copied from his or her debit or credit card onto the Black Card’s magnetic strip. The Black Card is used to pay for services at local businesses, and the discounts are automatically applied. By the end of 2015, McFarland already had over 10,000 memberships and counting.

Millennials love it, as they are social animals, and here is a way to save money at many of their favorite haunts. They enjoy getting together and talking shop, bragging about their exploits and obtaining business contacts.

Membership in Magnises is not a given as evidenced by the online application for which is required to be completed and approved by management. A good referral from a current member always helps. The Black Card has become a status symbol, and current members are quick to admonish their peers if they are not a member.

The target demographic of young professionals, entrepreneurs, management types in the garment industry and the IT space, and anyone else who might be somebody moving ahead, between the ages of 21 and 35. This is the magic grouping that makes the concept sizzle, and they love it.

McFarland is thinking about the expansion of the concept to other cities, and Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, London are prime targets, as he explains that millennials are the same breed, wherever you find them. His business model works well, and the future looks bright, especially since the same model is bound to be received by millennials elsewhere.

Online Reputation Management Reaches Public Relations Firms. Here’s How.

Online reputation management is a term associated with companies hiring a specialist to monitor and eliminate threatening audio, video, posts, photos, and customer feedback. Online reputation management aligns itself with individuals; they manually purge social media posts to delete offensive comments, photos, video, audio, and posts. Today, this term reaches public relations firms as well.

How so?

Wikipedia says reputation management was a former PR term that morphed into a search engine results issue. PR firms like Online Reputation Reviews don’t believe online reputation management ends at search engine results.

Yes, search results are a piece of media diffusion. By pushing positive content and up-to-date news to the first page, it pushes negative content down to the next page. The online reputation extends past search engine results to cover online reviews and cyber security.

Online review sites separate into search engine review sites, business review sites, consumer review sites, social media comments, independent message boards/forums, and comments left on company websites. Business review sites are similar to Yelp, Houzz, and Angie’s List. Consumer review sites divide itself by industry (auto, law, shopping, etc.). While the other categories are self-explanatory, it shows how tough and draining reviewing those review variations can be. Surveys also highlight reviews, and it reaches emails and written form as well as online.

Alternatively, Glassdoor, BBB, and Indeed opened the door for employees to review the company’s internal practices. This revelation damages companies differently; employers will have difficulty in job hiring due to the information.

Cybersecurity is necessary for hacking situations and leaked confidential information. This practice goes outside search engines into the dark side of the internet. If the wrong hands secure private information, it ruins company reputation. Healthcare and finance must be extra careful about this although all industries must be aware of hacking and leaks.

The public relations professionals need to embrace online reputation management at all levels. This begins with embracing technology as a PR strategy. Then, PR professionals need to learn how to navigate through social media, online reviews, and cyber security. This knowledge will help PR professionals combat online reputation management effectively and change strategy when necessary.

It’s Very Easy To Utilize The FreedomPop Free Service Each Month

Some may wonder how it’s possible to get by with the FreedomPop free cell phone plan, but there are several ways to make the plan extend throughout the month, even with limited talk time and data. The plan has been changed several times over the years since FreedomPop introduced it, but now it’s even better than ever. The free cell phone plan from FreedomPop is usable on any kind of phone, especially the latest smartphones. Those who have an iPhone of any kind or a Samsung Galaxy can use the phone with the free service.

A sim card will be needed for the free service if the phone being used is a GSM phone. Anyone bringing a phone from the Sprint network will simply need to connect it to FreedomPop and won’t need a sim card for their phone. The sim card has to be purchased from FreedomPop’s website or another site that sells the cards, and the sim card will be shipped to the customer for usage. The customer has to sign up directly for the free cell phone service, which means that they have to choose the free plan, even if they were previously on a paid plan.

The free plan will include 200 minutes of talk time, unlimited text messages, and 200 MB of data. Data amounts vary, depending on if a customer chooses to add FreedomPop friends, which can give them additional free data. FreedomPop also has other ways that their customers can gain free data, especially by completing offers, downloading software, completing surveys and more.

The paid service is similar to the free service in the fact that it gives 500 MB of data, but there is unlimited talk and text all for only $10.99 each month. The paid service is not the same as the $19.99 unlimited service because of the fact that the data is not unlimited with the paid plan. Anyone who has the free service or the paid service and needs more data can get additional data for their phone by signing up for the Wi-Fi service from FreedomPop. Only five dollars a month is the required fee to get the FreedomPop Wi-Fi service along with having the FreedomPop Wi-Fi application.
