Embracing Change – Growing Together

What’s new?

Like all persons and organizations adapting and improving is essential. OutBüro is no different. We’ve recently been making site changes and we think and hope you’ll love it. It is all for you.

Tech stuff

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.

Shift to Members Subscription

OutBüro has moved away from an employer-centric model to a model focused on YOU and YOUR interests and YOUR full self. We’ve been asked by numerous people over quite some time to be broader than a professionally focused only. After long deep thought, we have decided to move to a membership subscription model. It also allows OutBuro.com to provide a greater level of services improving your experience. It also provides you an opportunity to create residual income and other befits listed below which if you choose, makes you a central part of the OutBüro community.


As a member subscription model, OutBüro will be free from Google Ads and other similar programmatic ads. At some point, we may be open to direct placement ads, but that’s nowhere in the near future and would be very limited.

Access levels

  • Not logged-in site visitors are granted 7 page views a month before being presented the option to become a site-subscribed member.
  • Free members are granted access to all site articles and 7 page views a month to groups, profiles, and other members’ profiles.
  • Yearly/monthly members are granted full site access including the option to post content to the site’s blog and the option to become an affiliate/influencer with residual income earning potential.


Groups and Profiles/Members is Subscriber-only access. Join/create groups you are interested in.

Groups are now categorized into up to 3 categories:

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

Added user and members support tool that provides live chat support, a new integrated growing knowledge base, and a support ticketing system.


Searching, viewing, connecting, and direct messaging other members is now part of the yearly/monthly subscriptions. A huge benefit to being subscription-based is trust and safety.

Trust and Safety

Every site subscriber has been validated to be human to the best of PayPal’s Fraud Detection technology. We know firsthand how frustrating it is to connect with other “persons” online to only quickly see patterns of phishing techniques.

OutBüro has 2+ layers of firewalls, monitoring, and other technical security features. We naturally don’t want to over-describe it.

Content within the community can be reported. Each report is evaluated by the OutBüro team. If any content is reported 3+ times it is immediately removed from public view awaiting moderation.

You control what groups you join/leave, who you connect with, etc.

You control the visibility of your profile to the field level, where and how you receive notifications, who may direct message your, you may block other members, you may download your community data, and more. See the knowledge base for more.


We’ve implemented a site vistor and member support system that has live-chat, a growing knowledge base for self service support, and ticketing system all in one system for ease of use, consistancy, and issue tracking to better serve you.

Residual Income Opportunities

1. Affiliate/Influencer Program

Site Subscribers may optionally choose to be an affiliate/influencer and earn a residual income stream through promoting OutBuro.com to others. Commissions are earned upon new Yearly/Monthly subscriptions that use your unique links and/or codes. See Affiliate/Influencer Program Overview and the Affiliate/Influencer Income Estimator for more information.

2. Publish Content

Site Subscribers may publish articles/content. See Get Published on OutBüro for more information. Member published content may be eligible to earn an income based on category and performance.

Is that all?

Oh gosh no. OutBüro is constantly adapting and enhancing features and content to be your community. We have lots planned. Join us to help it become its full self while you are your full self on OutBüro.

As a subscribed member you are helping us further invest in the site and the community.

With your subscription, we have several job roles defined and ready to hire to better support you and grow.

TripleLift & GroupM Join Forces To Drive Ad Spend To Minority-Owned Publishers

Effort Directs Programmatic Ad Dollars To Black, Latinx, AAPI and LGBTQ+ Owned Companies

NEW YORK, June 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — TripleLift, one of the fastest-growing ad tech companies in the world, and GroupM, the world’s largest buyer of media, have partnered on TripleLift’s “Underrepresented Voices” Exchange Traded Deal to help buyers direct more spend to minority-owned publishers. The initiative is a curated deal of ad impressions that run solely on websites owned by Black, Latinx, AAPI, and LGBTQ+ media company operators. GroupM is the first holding company to formally support the effort. TripleLift is waiving their fees so that more dollars go directly to the publishers.

Support for minority-owned publishers has increased over the last year as social equality issues have become more important to media buyers. In recent months, multiple brands and holding companies have made commitments to spend more of their media budgets with these publishers. GroupM recently announced their Responsible Investment Framework that includes an invitation to clients to invest 2+% or more of their total media spend in Black-owned media companies. This is the first ad tech partnership GroupM has entered into to further that pledge. 

“A key part of our mission is to be supportive of our publisher partners–when they thrive, we thrive along with them”Tweet this

TripleLift launched their Exchange Traded Deals (ETDs) – curated packages of programmatic ad impressions – late last year. Among the first ETDs to be released was Underrepresented Voices, made up of impressions running across 6,100 minority websites. The company prioritized its rollout largely due to the demand raised by buyers towards the end of a tumultuous year that witnessed increased awareness of social injustice. TripleLift noted that 20% of all sites on their platform are minority and/or women-owned.

“A key part of our mission is to be supportive of our publisher partners — when they thrive, we thrive along with them,” said Jordan Bitterman, Chief Marketing Officer of TripleLift. “Just as critical, this commitment is in support of our own DE&I company initiatives, often sparked by our passionate employee resource groups. So, this is a great way to support the ambitions of our publishers, our employees and GroupM, all at once.”

GroupM, WPP’s media investment group, is the first agency group participating in Underrepresented Voices and the holding company level. “The goal of our Media Inclusion Initiative and by extension, the Responsible Investment Framework is to direct media spend more equitably and deepen our DE&I commitments,” said Susan Schiekofer, GroupM’s U.S. Chief Digital Investment Officer. “For advertising to work better for people, we have to give our clients supplier diversity options to invest media dollars that in turn improve the ecosystem and drive positive cultural influence. The TripleLift initiative helps us reach this goal.”

GroupM will make Underrepresented Voices available to all of its brands. That spend can be meaningful to media companies. “As a black woman business owner, I have first-hand experience as to why initiatives such as this one are so important,” said Mediavine publisher Tanya Harris, owner of My Forking Life, a food blog with quick recipes for busy people. “I started my blog five years ago and I noticed a lack of diversity in the blogging industry. That’s starting to change, but much more could be done to level the playing field. Underrepresented Voices is a huge step in the right direction and I’m thankful that TripleLift and GroupM started this initiative.”

Underrepresented Voices will continue to be available to all ad buyers in perpetuity.
