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.

Advertising

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

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.

Members

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.

Support

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.

Alexis Floyd on The Bold Type – A Touching Moment

Earlier this week I was so honored to be a part of a family and friend gathering that at the home of Mark Floyd here in Fort Lauderdale. It was a special night. Mark’s daughter Alexis Floyd appeared for her first time on the Freeform hit show The Bold Type. (April 23, 2019 – Season 3 – Episode 3) Airs Tuesdays at 8 PM. Alexis’ character is a lesbian.

Alexis Floyd – Actress

At 7:50 Mark, excited and smiling wide FaceTimed Alexis. After a moment Mark panned his iPad around to show Alexis the near 20 guys here to celebrate her professional growth as an actress. Alexis gasped holding her hand up to her mouth she said, “Oh my gosh. This is amazing. Thank you so much.” Mark replied, “We’re all here for you.” Mark started to introduce each of us to Alexis, but her New York City apartment doorbell began ringing. The friends started pouring in with shrills of excitement. Before hanging up so all could watch the episode, Alexis pulled her phone close and said, “I love you.” Mark shouted back. “Love you too. Talk with you in a bit.”

I’ve simplified the interchange a little. What I saw was a family giving and receiving love and support. When I was describing the gist here to a friend he said, “Most families are like that.” I replied, “Humm. Not all.”

The Bold Type episode took on tough topics, was current, sharp and witty that can start conversations as usual. But the show just got even better with the addition of Alexis Floyd.

Looking forward to seeing more great things. Wishing her and the show continued success.
