Investors

~ 100 buzzes
An investor allocates capital with the expectation of a future financial return. Types of investments include: equity, debt securities, real estate, currency, commodity, derivatives such as put and call options, etc. This definition makes no distinction between those in the primary and secondary markets. That is, someone who provides a business with capital and someone who buys a stock are both investors. An investor who owns a stock is a shareholder.

    Just took a look at his link - http://expandedramblings.com/index.php/by-the-numbers-a-few-important-linkedin-stats/ (says Number of monthly unique visiting linkedin members 106m) - Unique and Active are very different.....1 member may look once in the month, not really an active member. (i think their active members per month/week would be alot lower)

    #21 I want to dig in a bit to Linkedin's MAU figures. We have been using that 23% number but I want to really check it out. It may be lower. Is it 23% of their 109M active users (our of 433M) which is 25% of their total users? In other words 23% of 25%???

    Very interesting, Javier. I question the MAU statistic for LI, though

    According to Statista at https://www.statista.com/topics/951/linkedin/ , LinkedIn gets 106M unique visitors QUARTERLY not monthly. The monthly figure is closer to 30M. MAU would therefore be 7%

    @Javier 🐝 beBee I use Linked In to keep a professional profile, although I am not sure of the benefit. I joined facebook years ago, just so I could keep up with my adult kids and the roaming the world they did. I joined BeBee and am finding it a different experience. it definitely is both professional and personal, which is accepting the reality that the divisions of work and play do not sit well with human beings. Especially when our work is play as it is what we love and our play is work, as we see what we love everywhere and can learn from all of our experiences no matter where they are and apply them to our work. I sense beBee is really on to something here.

    Probably a good idea to write out Monthly Active Users on the graphic for wide distribution. And I do think average daily or weekly time on the site is ultimately a great statistic - as it indicates high engagement/usefulness/enjoyment.

    This is very effective messaging, Javier. I really like the MAU comparison, as that's a very effective statistic. I'm wondering if you also may have calculated the average daily user time on the site? I recall reading that LI ranked near the bottom of this category among major social platforms (less than 10-minutes), while Facebook was first with about 50-minutes. It might be interesting to see where beBee fits into the mix.
    Also, you and the entire beBee team deserve accolades for achieving so many impressive accomplishments in such a short time period. The future looks bright and the buzz is growing louder!

    #1 #2 #3 De acuerdo con @Fran Brizzolis en que beBee debería desarrollar más su lado "profesional". Hay muy poca presencia de empresas y negocios, que son los que mueven este área. Creo que beBee tiene mucho potencial y podría convertirse en la red que utilicen las empresas para mostrar la faceta más "personal" de sus organizaciones.

    #2 Completamente de acuerdo @Fran Brizzolis, Linkedin es frío como un tempano. Y siempre me pareció diseñado para altos ejecutivos, directivos y gente con un curriculazo de aquí te espero. Y en el mundo laboral hacen falta profesionales de ese nivel, claro está, pero también otros perfiles diferentes. Y si, te dediques a lo que te dediques, tienes el gusanillo de escribir y compartir conocimientos beBee es una red social especial. Y me da que a medida que crezca no solo en tamaño sino también en posibilidades y funciones añadidas marcará la diferencia. Yo no hay cliente al que le lleve las redes sociales que no le recomiende y que una vez la han visto me del el visto bueno para publicar sus contenidos aquí.

    Desde luego es así @Javier 🐝 beBee... Linkedin a mi juicio es excesivamente profesional, y tuvo su época dorada, era como un escaparate para "head hunters" de alto nivel, pero además era y es demasiado impersonal, parece un almacén de carreras profesionales, y eso está bien, siempre y cuando tengamos presente que detrás de cada carrera profesional hay personas, y por eso beBee tiene mucho futuro, pero también creo que beBee tome algo de la profesionalidad pero sin excederse que tiene Linkedin, (y no estoy diciendo en absoluto que beBee no sea profesional en absoluto quiero decir eso). Es bueno que profesionales de todo el mundo y de todo tipo sean encontrados gracias a beBee, y sobre todo que la gente lo sepa. Gran post, y excepcional trabajo, no hay color si comparamos el primer año de vida de ambas redes.... Seguro que ganamos... Recibe tú y todo tu equipo la más sincera enhorabuena y toda mi admiración por este gran éxito de esta humilde abeja, que aporta con orgullo todo lo que buenamente puede. Recibid todos un fuerte abrazo y desde luego todo mi apoyo.

    @Gary Sharpe, although I follow you on beBee, this is the first I've seen this post. You and I have disagreed several times in the past, but this is not one of those times. I agree with you 100% that the business ideal needs to change, if a platform is to be built organically on a foundation of quality content and genuine engagement. And I suggested something similar recently in a discussion on @Samantha Bailey's group discussion for owners and managers of LI groups (on LI). Well, and truly said, @Gary Sharpe. I will be sharing this.

    What an astute idea. I love it!

    I seems the downfall on other social platforms was (and continues to be) the tweaking for various reasons...
    the Golden Egg Greed of seeing great writers post incredible content, realizing that many of these Influencers could generate incredible view, likes and resulting traffic, probably seeing $$$ ties, then quietly filtering out non-conforming voices via algorithm "enhancements" and hoping nobody would notice.

    As all bees know, many noticed.

    Those platforms deviated from their original purpose and went the way of mainstream media with news - beholden to their shareholders, not their stakeholders.

    Which are we, Bees?!!!

    Thank you @Gary Sharpe for sharing your relevant approach and uplifting commitments, as your trademark and represents initial evidence about what promises to be an important and fruitful phenomenon in the study of new ventures.
    Entrepreneurs who seek crowdfunding have to follow some clear lessons, because crowdfunding creates a useful window for the nascent entrepreneurial ventures :
    First, project quality is important by the ability to embrace and entrepreneurs should look for ways to signal preparedness. Social network ties have also been found to be important in crowdfunding.
    Second, appropriate goals are those that allow a founder to deliver a product on time; achieving significantly more funding than requested is rare. Most importantly, careful planning is required both to set these goals and to prepare for a crowdfunding success, which will entail a need to rapidly execute a promised venture.
    The exemplarity of the daily insightful demonstration done by beBee team's engagements is one key element of its sustainability perspective to secure and enlighten the concept of reward-based crowdfunding.

    I like the idea of equity crowd funding as well. It creates a genuine interest from the Shareholders. With that said transparency and timing is essential. Those that want to be a part of beBee need to be kept in the loop or should I say the hive. Anticipation is a great tool to hold on to those with true interest but too long of a wait can create doubt. From what I have seen, there is transparency but the stepping stones have yet to be put into place. I am very pleased with beBee and see nothing but a bright future.

    25 We have been discussing about this topic during a long time. We have several alternatives to fund the company; VCs, super angels and family offices, institutional private equity placements targeting structured funds, equity crowd funding and crowd funding itself.

    We truly would like to make an equity crowd. Funding initiative so to give the opporrunity to thousands of users to become beBee's shareholders.

    The equity crowd funding takes time and it is complex but at the same time would allow us to share our company with you. What yo you think guys?

    I do not think finance is currently a problem for beBee's Chairman and CEO.

    May I propose that ''TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE FOR EVERYDAY MAN AND WOMAN'' is one of beBee's objective statements. This is not an utopian statement, and if adopted needs to be further refined (via SMART framework) by well-meaning experts. Objective statements would set the ground for further expansion and finance strategy.

    If I'm not wrong, beBee's goal is not to build it up and sell it off at a price the founders cannot refuse. To make the world a better place for everyday man and woman, beBee's proceeds (profit) need to come from real products and services, NOT from stock trading and share price.

    Interesting and noble suggestion but I think this would be a time bounded or intermediate era only , beBee is not a social enterprise and while they have great values and mindset it needs volume and scale and for that they need investors with guarantee etc.. Now I am of the opinion that while the founders and the broader beBee team listens and integrates feedback it is up to them to define their strategy as they are the ones under financial pressure.


    As nota bene: please don't bring the Candice / Kardashian circus biz to beBee I know many are smitten I am not :-)

    Great piece and you open an interesting question. Having written for Yahoo and received payment based on views for my writing, obviously based on the adds they were also able to draw to those posts, I am wondering if there are a number of ways to make the platform liquid. I personally don't mind ads. Actually, I make my living full time at an agency, so digital ads aren't a bad thing in my world. But I hate retargeting on this kind of platform. Let's put those bee brains to work and come up with some ideas. I'm sure there are many that would work well and please most!

    Absolutely - count me in! We bees are here because we enjoy beBee and each other. We invest our time in beBee so why wouldn't we want to protect it. I like your idea, Gary Sharpe.

    I'm high on believing that here at beBee there are many people with great ideas to develop, from recycling to art, to create new businesses or to recover old time crafts. And sure there are many people willing to participate in them, if they only could know about those projects, not only with money, but with the advices, the resources, where to go, where to get what they need, even donate material, objects, machinery, second hand anythings... at least, the main and most important funds are here, the Bees, who want to do something different!

    How far will this go in your opinion?

    "Sterling sank to its lowest since 2013 against the euro. It briefly pared its losses as Bank of England Governor Mark Carney outlined more tools to contain the fallout from the U.K.’s decision to quit the bloc. Speaking in London, he said his concerns about pound declines had been borne out since the Brexit vote, while adding that the weaker currency should help exporters."

    “When the crowd thought that Brexit was unlikely (initially markets and punters seemed to agree on that point), this was the time when the Fund needed to question the prevailing wisdom and prepare itself to face the alternative scenario, and also be on the right side in case of a black-swan event,” Tang wrote.

    Britain’s surprise vote to leave the European Union spurred a rush for the safest assets, including U.S. Treasuries. U.K. government bonds surged amid speculation that the Bank of England will maintain an easy monetary policy. #Strategy #Contrarian
