Upgrade Free Account to Yearly Monthly subscription OutBuro lgbtq social media online community network networking gay men m4m lesbians woman bisexual transgender queer

What’s New and How to Upgrade

Recently OutBuro.com has gone through many technical changes to better serve the community in a broader way from its initial concept. As a registered member, you are likely aware it was previously striving to focus purely on the professional side of life. We’ve opened it up to be more general while still providing professionally oriented groups and retaining professional aspects of the member profile. It’s your choice on what you complete in your profile, the groups you join, how you engage, and who you connect with and direct message with. Check out the Is OutBüro a Dating Site? in the growing Knowledge Base article.

What’s new?

Hope you’ve noticed, but if not take a moment and refresh this screen. DANG, that was fast. Yes, we’ve made lots of changes to our technical architecture focused on security, speed, reliability, and growth.

OutBüro has moved away from an employer-centric model to a model focused on YOU and YOUR interests and YOUR full self.

It is now a member subscription model free from Google Ads and other similar ads. Groups and Profiles/Members is Subscriber-only access. Essentially removing a free membership also means less likely to have spammers on the site. It also allows OutBuro.com to provide a greater level of services improving your experience.

Groups are now categorized into up to 3 categories:

  • General
  • Professional
  • Men
  • Women
  • Transgender
  • Regional
  • Lifestyle

Features and Options Preferences on OutBuro lgbtq social media online community network networking gay men m4m lesbians woman bisexual transgender queer

Control Your Experience

We are striving to build an online global LGBTQ+ community with robust features welcoming you to be your whole self. You control what, who, how, when, etc. on OutBüro.

Why not?

But before that here are some recently adopted site member subscription models to really partner with the full community for anyone wanting to thrive together. We now offer everyone or entity (business, charity, non-profit, NGO, PAC, political campaign if doable, organization, etc.) the ability to earn a side income in a few ways.

We think you are talented, unique, creative, informed, a constant seeker, a connector, and a doer.

So why not allow you to earn a good portion of the membership revenue by sharing the site/app. That’s optional as well as earning by submitting articles for the site such as news, informative, press releases, educational, promotional, commentary, investigative, lifestyle, entertainment, announcements, etc.

Let’s get connected and do amazing things.

Smoking hot

As of May 2022 in addition to the broadening of the site, we also implemented a cloud architecture. What does that mean for you? Version 1.0 in the US and Canada would fully load in a whopping 12-17 seconds.

Sure lots of variables, but from turtle to rabbit. All for you. So get connected. Get started today.

Down Low DL on OutBuro connecting lgbtq social media online community network networking gay lesbian bisexual transgender queer

Down low? Bruh, we got ya.

Today for many reasons people around the country and world are secretly gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or queer. This is commonly known as being on the Down Low or DL for short. Everyone needs to feel safe, welcomed, and able to connect with others. They want and need to explore the LGBTQ+ community on their terms right where they are.

On OutBuro.com we got you

The OutBüro social community for the LGBTQ+ community understands this and has the ability for you to be as out, loud, and proud as you’d like or as DL as you like. It is up to you and you can change your profile settings at any time.

If you choose, you can even have two profiles on OutBuro.com. You might use one profile account to interact with general and professional groups and maybe leverage the ability to earn a passive residual income with our referral/affiliate program. Perhaps a second account that uses either a fake name or a user name like “DallasBear77” to explore all the gay/bi/trans/queer male-centric groups – as an example. There are many groups covering gender/sexuality, regional, lifestyle, hobbies, and more. Check out the Joining and Creating Groups article.

It’s your choice. If you choose to use more than one account each would require a unique email address and a Yearly or Monthly membership plan for full site access, but it’s your choice. You decide.

Get Connected on the DL

The first method is to use a fake name. You can create a fake profile first and last name when initially setting up your new OutBuro.com account, or change your name at any time. You may also change the account/profile associated email address at any time too.

To manage your Profile Preferences including general privacy settings and how your name or user name will appear on the site/app, navigate to your Profile, then your About tab, and next select the Preferences sub-tab. Here’s a Knowledge
The base article that goes into it in detail – Site/App Preferences.

Note that you also control the visibility of every field on a field by field basis – public, site members, friends/connections only or only you. You may also control the visibility of nearly everything you post. Again, please check out the Knowledge Base to learn more.

Membership Plan Subscription

Note that accessing your full profile, like groups, and connecting with other members requires a Yearly/Monthly membership plan. If you signed up with only the Free plan, while logged in from the top menu choose Memberships and then select the plan you’d like.

Like any platform that has a user-made-up profile name and paid membership, your site user name is what others on the site see. To process your membership payment your real name and other required information required by the payment processer is required. On OutBuro.com the membership system is separate from the community system.

Idea for More Income

Consider adding content to the blog. Check out Get Published on OutBüro.

Ideas for that Extra Income

Use the funds in any way you see fit.

If you are an individual Affiliate/Influencer:

  • Spread it out as a well deserved extra income source
  • pay a bill or two
  • pay down/off your credit card debt
  • pay down/off your car
  • pay rent
  • pay down/off your home
  • fund a vacation
  • the possibilities are endless

If your company is an Affiliate/Influencer:

  • apply the funds to business expenses
  • donate the funds to local LGBT non-profit charities
  • throw a great party for your employees or customers
  • it’s up to you

If your organization is an Ambassador:

  • Speak with your accountant on how best to categorize the funds.  Consider it a donation/stipend or income earned
  • Use the funds to fill in the gaps from your members’ donations
  • Use the funds to expand your community services
  • It’s up to you

Understanding last referrer associated

So, let’s say that we have an Affiliate 1 (John) and Affiliate_1 (John) shares a link. Now, visitor_1 clicks on the link, but they don’t sign up as a Yearly/Monthly Member that visit. 

54 days later, a second affiliate named Affiliate_2 (Suzzy) shares a link that the same visitor_1 clicks on and then at that time signs up as a Yearly/Monthly Member.  Affiliate_2 (Suzzy) will be attributed and associated with the new Member Subscription account.  Thus Affiliate _2 (Suzzy) will receive the commissions from visitor_1‘s subscription fees. 

It is therefore important if you are working to attract visitors to OutBüro that you follow up and do what you can to get them to become subscribed members as soon as possible. Engage them frequently to visit the site to keep your cookie active, more likely their last referrer, and ultimately become a subscribing member so that you get them as part of your Affiliate/Influencer Income Stream.
