He realizes that many people are still suffering in the country of Nepal. In April 2015, a 7.8 earthquake rocked the country. Many aftershocks followed throughout the month of April and on into May. Unfortunately, many individuals lost their life in this disaster. Others were injured, lost their homes, and have had their lives turned upside down. Even though many months have passed since the disaster, many people are still suffering.

One of his recent business ventures was setting up a company that provides a grocery delivery service for business people. Individuals can use the Internet to choose grocery items and then purchase them. Majeed’s company then delivers these groceries. This is something that is helping many Chicago residents. It is also beneficial for individuals who would like to purchase from grocery store chains as well as small specialty shops in the Chicago area. His company delivers groceries via Federal Express to individuals who would like to purchase items from Chicago.

All funds that are donated to the victims of the Nepal earthquake are appreciated not only by Majeed, but also by the many victims who are still suffering.

RCR Wireless News recently reported on a new strategy from phone service provider FreedomPop. FreedomPop is a California based phone provider which has made low cost service a priority. One of the biggest sources of attention has come from the fact that they’re able to offer options for free phone, texting and data services. On top of which they’ve also been able to offer a variety of options to add additional service in for either a small fee or free methods of compensation. FreedomPop has been in operation using this business plan since 2011.

However, FreedomPop has recently been looking into all new methods through which they can expand service while still keeping costs down. The most recent method they’ve used is refurbished phones. These are a type of used smartphone which has been professionally cleaned, examined, and brought up to the same standards as an all new phone. But the major difference is the price. FreedomPop has been able to secure a supply of refurbished smartphones and they’re passing on the savings to their customers. In particular, the Black Friday savings have taken this already low cost and reduced it even further.

FreedomPop offered a Motorola E for only $40. This is an estimated discount of around $190. They also offered a deal on the Samsung Galaxy S4, with a total cost of $100. This is an estimated $350 discount over what one would pay if buying it new. FreedomPop also bundled an enhanced service option with the phones for the people who took advantage of the deal. They offered a full month of free voice service, text messaging, and an entire gigabyte of Internet data transfers. After the month is over customers will be switched to the normal service plan unless they choose to upgrade. But this still includes 500 minutes of voice per month, 500 text messages and 500 megabytes of Internet data transfers.

But this is only the beginning of FreedomPop’s expansion into the hardware business. They recently received an undisclosed amount of funding from Intel Capital. This support will be used to make vast improvements and changes on their line of phones. The biggest change will come with a hybrid Wi-Fi phone. This phone will operate in a hybrid manner between Internet based phone service and traditional service. If someone is near an open Wi-Fi point than the phone will instantly connect to it. At that point any call made or received with the phone will simply use a voice over IP system. If the phone isn’t near an open Wi-Fi point than it will make use of traditional phone service.

One of the most exciting aspects of these new phones comes from strategic partnerships which should expand the possibilities for open Wi-Fi points for the phone to use. For users this is significant because service using the Wi-Fi points won’t count against the number of minutes, data or text messages they have in their account.


Darius Fisher is the president and co-founder of Status Labs, which is an online reputation management and public relations company with its headquarters in Austin, Texas. The company specializes in digital presence repair. Two other office locations are in operation in Sao Paulo and New York. Up to this point, Status Labs has served over 1,000 clients in over 30 countries helping them to improve search results, PR strategies and digital marketing. Some of their clientele include politicians, executives and public figures. Darius Fisher has previously served as a political consultant and copywriter. He is reported to be doing well in spite of a resignation of a co-partner and an accusation of editing Wikipedia’s articles against the online encyclopedia’s rules.

Darius Fisher is originally from New York. In spite of the two controversies involving Status Labs, he has demonstrated high skill at maintaining the organizations reputation as a digital marketing and public relations firm. As Fisher has pointed out, search engine results don’t change unless the business owner sees to it that they do. His experience with upholding Status Labs’ reputation has made him a sought-out expert in online and digital management.

When asked what he believes that the biggest mistake he sees most of his clients making, Fisher says that it is lack of preparedness. A lot of business owners apparently don’t realize the importance or how much of an impact their digital presence has online and hence, the world. As a result, they inadvertently leave themselves open to attacks and bad reputations. Fisher says that it is important to keep a close monitoring on their web presence and to always be prepared for the worst. It is also important that their designs be interesting, otherwise, they won’t stand out and make it to the top of the search engine results.

It is common for companies to get bad reviews. No one or group of people is going to please everyone. Everyone has their own set of values that differ from one another. As a result, they may not be happy with some establishments that others are happy with. However, this doesn’t stop a bad review from taking away from the business of the small company. Therefore it is very important that a company owner like Andrew Gruel fight bad reviews. With poor online reviews, it is important that Andrew Gruel responds rapidly to the poor online reviews that he has gotten.

One set of reviews that he got about one of his Slapfish restaurants is that they charged too much for the portions that they served. This has prompted Andrew Gruel to contact his customers and have them return to the restaurant and adjust the prices and portions.

Another thing to do is to contact Status Labs. Status Labs is one of the companies that works with people on their reputations. They work on the reputations of businesses of various sizes so that they can continue to get customers. Status Labs understands the type of damage that poor reviews can do.

Status Labs has proven its public relations abilities with a fight against a bad review of its own. It was hit with an unsatisfied reviewed. They worked skillfully towards moving the bad review down with updates on the service. As a result, they have gained back their status as a good company. Status Labs has proven that the professionals are equipped to improve the reputation of any given person or business with the use of many different techniques which include presenting optimized content and having some bad reviews moved from online sources so that they don’t cause much damage to the company.

Gruel’s tactics are also helpful. He makes amends with unsatisfied customers in order to help the company gain better reputation. If the unsatisfied person walks away satisfied, then this will improve the reputation of the company. Also, the fact that the company owner goes after the unsatisfied customer in order to make things right shows that he really cares about his customers.

Google creates a person’s character. Well, that is not entirely correct. The listings in the search engines, whether they are true or not, create a perception about persons, places, and things. When there are extremely troubling things showing up in the Google search engine results, steps have to be taken to address the problem.

Darius Fisher, the president of Status Labs, knows a lot about correcting problems with search engine result. His reputation management company has helped roughly 1,500 clients in 35+ countries fix internet reputation management woes. In a recent interview, Fisher pointed out a very inconvenient fact. Google results won’t change on their own. Someone has to be very proactive when trying to fix the damage that can occur.

First, clear out all cookies and run name searches. A person should run his/her name, various aliases, and business or company names through Google. This way, any troubles with Google are then immediately revealed. Only when a problem is discovered will steps be taken to address it.

How the problem is to be addressed depends on various factors. Information related to data brokers can be fixed by requesting the brokers no longer make private information public. Bad reviews, however, are harder to deal with. Creating a significant amount of new content and publishing the material online could help mitigate the problem. A series of new good reviews are going to help hedge against the bad ones. Publishing totally new websites and social media profiles would be other examples of creating a new online persona.

Darius Fisher understands how to go about these steps and he has noted they are rooted in concepts of digital marketing. Fisher knows digital marketing. He was named on PR Week’s Innovation 50 list of top digital marketers. Through an effective campaign the search engine results can basically be re-mastered.

Multi-family units are greatly in demand in NYC Real Estate as per a recent article which indicated a sharp increase in the price of these homes. In September 2015, multi-family home sales were $1.7 billion which is over a 90% increase in the price from August 2015.
