5 Tips for Analysing News Sources For Reliability with Milan Kordestani of The Doe

You would imagine all news sources are reliable – well it’s not the case. Most news sources have a bias and as such aren’t to be trusted completely.

Milan Kordestani saw this and set up “The Doe” to counter this problem and provide a reliable news source. He went a step further too as The Doe is an anonymous source that provides verified and trustworthy news, allowing its writers to give an honest opinion without fear of reprisal. He knows what makes news reliable and has shared some of his tips to help you decipher if what you read is honest, below.

News Source Analysis

Be sure not to get your news from sites ending in ‘lo,’ as these sources are misleading. What they do is take packaged news containing facts and twist them with false information to paint attention-grabbing headlines. They can even be satirical in nature.

You get the same thing with news sites that say .com.co, with the .co following right after what you would normally believe to be a reputable site. These sites provide fake news as well.

You can often tell that a news story is fake if it isn’t being widely reported by the major news outlets. Naturally, corporate media bias can produce the same result, so that can be a bit confusing. Yet if a news story is breaking, it should be reported by multiple sources.

Certain types of domain extensions were mentioned. You also need to consider odd domain names in general. If a domain name is odd, then you can likely expect the news to be untruthful and misleading. Many sites like this also end up showing little to no author attribution. This would mean that the story itself has no verified source.

You’re also going to notice that some of the major sites allow bloggers to provide additional content. Yet you have to understand that the content provided by these bloggers isn’t going through the same editorial process. An example of this type of site would be BuzzFeed. Thedoe.com is a site for blogs to be posted anonymously allowing a platform for free speech.

Be sure to always look at the about us page for any news site that you’re familiar with. You can use Wikipedia or Snopes to look up a news site as well. Pay attention to the design of any site as well because poor site design is a huge red flag.

Let’s say you read a news story, and the dialogue angers you. If that’s the case, you might as well get more information about this news story from other sources. Why? The content was biased and purposefully driven to get you to think a certain way. There is potentially false information contained in the report, and you want the real news, not fake news.

You want to get your news from multiple sources. That way you are provided with variety when it comes to people’s viewpoints.

Jordan Pickford, England’s Number One endorses Hairbond United Kingdom

Jordan Pickford

England’s number one, and Everton FC goalkeeper Jordan Pickford endorses the Hairbond United Kingdom, also known to those in the hair care industry as the “Premier League of Hair Products”.

After a fresh trim at his friend’s barbershop back up in the North East, Pickford is snapped holding two of the large popular hair styling products on his way out of Mr. Tillys Barbershop in Newcastle.

We see on one hand he is holding the Hairbond Texturiser Professional Hair Cream (Blue) and the popular Hairbond Distorter Professional Hair Clay in the other (Green).

According to the brand, these two products have a more flexible hold and are designed to give the hair more of a textured look. The Texturiser cream offers more of a subtle softer look with a slight shine, whilst the Distorter clay offers more of a flexible, matte, natural finish.

Hairbond products hit their footballer marketing hard, as it has also been recently spotted in the magazines endorsed by the likes of fellow England International footballers, Harry Winks who plays for Tottenham Hotspurs, Fraser Forster, the goalkeeper of Celtic, James Ward Prowse, Captain of Southampton and Jamie Vardy, goal scorer for Leicester City FC.

So what is so special about these products?

Over the last ten years, Hairbond has built its premium name and reputation on making quality and high-performance products, and the brand boasts about its consumer loyalty rate when they operate in such a competitive market.

Up against huge corporate salon competition with the likes of Loreal, Wella and Schwarzkopf on one hand, and millions of self-made barber brands on the other, Hairbond first established itself in a niche category of men and women who want to invest into consistently high quality and high-performance products first and foremost.

Like footballers drive around inexpensive high-performance cars, they evidently invest in the highest performance hair products too and for most footballers, image is absolutely everything.

Hairbond is manufactured and marketed as professional hair styling products and can be found on most popular online market places as well as in partnered professional hair salons and barbershops. You will not find this brand on the high street or in drug stores and supermarkets.

Q&A: What Users Need to Know About Kevin Kelpinwietz and Challenger Banks

Find out who Kevin Kelpinwietz is, what Challenger Banks are, and what makes them so popular

You’ve probably heard of Qazikoo Challenger Bank, but do you the impact it’s having in the banking sector? With the opening date just around the corner, set for September 2020, let’s shed some light on what the buzz is all about and the man behind Qazikoo.

Who is Kevin Kelpinwietz?

Kevin Kelpinwietz, 34, from London, is the founder and Director of Qazikoo Challenger Bank. Kelpinwietz first started working on Qazikoo in 2018 in collaboration with finance and IT experts to harness the advantages of fintech to build an industry-leading Challenger Bank.

What is Qazikoo Challenger Bank?

Qazikoo is the UK’s fastest-growing Challenger Bank. It gained 10,000 subscriptions in the pre-launch phase, and it has over 1,000 celebrities and brand ambassadors endorsing it and talking about it across all social media platforms.

What Does Qazikoo Challenger Bank do?

As a fintech Challenger Bank, Qazikoo appeals to digital-era users and allows them to manage all their banking needs in one app.

It’s a banking institution that works 100% online. There are no offices or branches, just excellent customer support, and unparalleled banking opportunities and advantages.

Rather than relying on a traditional banking concept, Qazikoo focuses on fintech to deliver cheap and easy-to-use products and services. With Qazikoo’s innovative approach, people have more options in the fintech world to streamline their banking needs using their smartphones.

“We want people to understand that we’re unlike any other bank. We are not the stereotypical dinosaur-like bank, but a simple and modern bank that is suited for today’s globalized world,” said Kelpinwietz.

Why Choose Qazikoo?

Launched by Kelpinwietz, the charismatic entrepreneur, the fintech-driven Challenger Bank is drawing lots of attention and appreciation, with new subscribers signing up every day.

Among other advantages, Qazikoo has some competitive advantages that traditional banks lack:

  1. Low entry requirements
  2. A digital solution that lets you make banking operations on-the-go
  3. Flexibility and more options to match users’ needs and expectations
  4. User-centric to offer personalized solutions
  5. Lower fees and transaction costs

Is Qazikoo Challenger Bank here to Stay?

In short, yes. While traditional banks worked well in the past, their services have somewhat become obsolete. The system has fundamentally stayed the same for centuries, with very little innovation or room to give clients more freedom and flexibility.

By contrast, Kelpinwietz’s Challenger Bank is built in response to the need for more banking options that compete with the banking giants.

Kevin Kelpinwietz

Qazikoo embodies the world’s unanimous demand for a digital bank that works around people’s time – and not the other way round. Promoting a simple, transparent, and secure service, online banking is now easy and effective.

At the heart of Qazikoo’s fintech-built vision, is the desire to offer people a digital bank to check their balance, make payments, and access other financial services via Qazikoo’s superior app. With such premises, there’s no doubt that Challenger Banks will become even more popular and set the benchmark for banking of the future.

Stay tuned to see how Kelpinwietz is going to make history with Qazikoo fintech Challenger Bank’s opening in September 2020.

ENDS

How to Expand your Audience with Online Conferences?

Expand your Audience with Online Conferences

2020 has seen many changes and new trends. Conference organizers and promoters have switched to online forums. Though this was done mainly because of the social distancing norms, the companies are now considering exploring the online venture further.

Undoubtedly, the decision to go virtual needs proper planning, resources, and creativity. All the aspects need to be altered to adjust to the virtual system. Though comparatively new, there are easy solutions for increasing the attractiveness, popularity, and effectiveness of your online event.

Proper Use of Social Media Marketing

Social media is the best tool out there to expand your audience for an online event. The various social media platforms not only notify the users of what’s coming up, but they also provide them with necessary information.

Facebook events are one of the most useful platforms as they provide an amazing amount of information as well as visibility. They will know what their friends are attending or are interested in and they will want to check out the events too. You can also provide the online registration details, dates, detailed description of the event. Once the procedure is completed and the Facebook event is up, you can link other social media platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, etc.

Moreover, another constructive way of increasing the audience is to use hashtags. This will help your event to gain more audience across all platforms. Hashtags have the potential to make the posts go viral and create more hype resulting in increased attendance.

Active Promotion

After posting your event details on social media it is important to promote it properly. You need to engage your target audience even before the event starts. Engage in ad campaigns to boost audience attendance.  Get the audience excited about the upcoming event and give them a quick glimpse of your preparations to boost conversation. But do remember that it is always quality over quantity. Make sure you don’t tire the audience with your constant posts and notifications. Postless but post the best and make the audience look forward to the event.

Personal Emails

It is always important to flatter your attendees. Engaging personally with your audience through emails helps to build interest. Make the emails look good so that the audience takes their time out to check them properly. Incorporate details such as why should they attend this event, key take always from the event, and how they can benefit from it.

Create A Buzz

Creating excitement and anticipation is necessary for attracting more audiences. You can use various methods to do so. Reveal your speakers and guests using teasers or videos to increase excitement. You can also arrange giveaways and expand your reach. You can use Instagram countdowns or Live stream sessions to promote and build excitement.

Audience Interaction

Make the audience feel like insiders. Engage in online conversations with them and try to understand their needs and expectations. You can also use different tools that help to increase interaction such as polls or Q&A sessions.

Post Event Promotion

The promotion continues even after an event is over. You need to make sure that you don’t lose the audience in your next event but in contrast, gain more. Therefore, you need to post in your social media how the event took place and ask for feedback from the attendees.

Finally, as virtual events are gaining more popularity it is important to analyze the importance of social media platforms in promoting the same. Other than social media forums, digital marketers should use their own skills and incorporate their own ideas to booster audiences and reach. With increasing competition, it is necessary to stand out and create a mark of your own.
