ooking to grow your brand, business, spread your message, generate leads or sales?
To do all of that digitally, there are things we need to put in place that goes beyond the realm of social media.
I call it our Digital Foundations.
A website is not a static brochure to display a product or contact info...It is the #1 Employee and Sales rep for your brand. It collects data, shows up in front of people who are looking for things related to your niche, takes your bookings and makes you money.
For your website to do this, you will need to learn how to extract data from the search engines to craft the right content and optimize your pages to be found via the search engines.
Your Blog or Post Section should be getting the most love on your website. This is where you create content on your website from the written blogs, audio and video posts. Learning the type of content to create, optimizing them for search and how to properly distribute it on the various digital channels is a key part of success.
So join me on Oct 23, Oct 30, Nov 6 for the Digipreneur Foundations Workshops...Each session builds on top of the other.
Each session is $30usd/$200ttd but if you take all 3 sessions, you can use the Code: Foundation and save $15usd/$100ttd off.
To register for the workshops or get more info, visit The Digipreneur Foundations Workshop Series.
I look forward to seeing you there.

In Ep 41, I dive into marketing and branding lessons that I learned from watching a battle rap interview and the boxing match between Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder.
What really stuck out for me was the content business model, the importance of your own platforms in order to have more control over key elements in your business, that talent isn't enough to win and that ultimately building a brand surrounding your talent is the key to digital success.
I watch Battle Rap and Boxing for my own escapism this weekend and I ended up having to pull out the notepad to take down some really good lessons.

Flow Business & BTC have come together to put forward a really good month-long series to help Caribbean businesses out in a big way.

There are going to be keynote speakers from Alison Hinds, Grace "Spice" Hamilton, Tricia Coosal and Natasha Mayne.

This was 5 years in the making but the month of Sept allowed me to hit my highest month in profit within my business.
I was able to hit over 30kusd with my ecosystem of products & services.
One of the best things I did during this journey is learning how to monetize your content and scale your business through digital products & services.
When I started off my business Droid Island, I learned real quick that with a brick and mortar store, there are just so many costs associated with running it and any disruption in the value chain can throw off your costs or delivery times to your consumers.
Becoming a 100% digital business, allowed me to scale and put more profit into my bank.
While I know we have people on Linkedin making a heck of a lot more lol...we all have to start somewhere and I'm glad to have hit this milestone in the middle of this pandemic.

Want to hear some good and bad news?
Remember the "New Normal" that you have been hearing about for some time now?
Well, we are transitioning again to another new normal and who knows how society has been reshaped whenever we finally get past the pandemic.
With costs of goods/services raising and industries being transformed, I have been starting to feel more and more that the only way for people to be able to ride the upcoming waves, is by learning how to tap into our suppressed entrepreneurial spirit and learn how to generate new revenue streams for themselves and families.
Entrepreneurship is something that needs to be taken more seriously during these times, especially because people are becoming discouraged by the limitations of the current job market. Not everybody will be able to get a job but everyone can leverage their knowledge and skills to create revenue.
The good news is that we have so many ways to learn new skills and we are no longer limited to only the opportunities presented in our countries.
So whilst many of you are not interested in building a fortune 500 company, learning how to tap into our entrepreneurial spirit and find creative ways to generate money needs to become a priority moving forward.

In this Case Study on Monetization, we will be looking at the channel "Aquarium Info".
One of her videos showed up on Facebook Watch as I was scrolling down my feed and caught my attention. It was super inciteful, well crafted and had tremendous engagement and shares.
Checking out the video got me thinking to look past the content and do a deeper dive into how she has built her platform and how she was monetizing her content.
I hope this case study gives you some insights on content and monetization options.
Feel free to check out Aquarium Info's Facebook page.

In this episode, we discuss 3 different ways that Caribbean businesses can improve their social media platforms. There are some key issues that we struggle with and are slowing down the growth for them on social media.

In this segment of our Sunday Motivation, I wanted to share with you a download I received today.
Audit Your Social Media!!!
When is the last time you sat down and intentionally went through your social media and began removing or muting content or people, that no longer serve where you are in your life?
This is a critical practice to be done, especially due to the amount of time we are spending on social media.
Enjoy this episode, I kept it short and sweet.
