As many of you must know, the face of SEO and Internet Marketing is rapidly changing. It’s been almost ten years since we completely evolved into a marketing company. True, we still made music clean up into 2010, but this was done through subsidiary, Shorty’s Playground, after splitting into two separate entities in 2007.
Shorty Produkshins has prided itself on keeping a head of competition by being early adopters and evolving our services to meet the needs of our growing audiences. We started as that tiny little studio, consisting of a computer and a closet, and delivered many phases to our most avid supporters. Many of you remember our plaza location and our studio suites. As time evolved and industries became saturated, we evolved. Shorty Produkshins has always giving a “new era in royalty” through this constant growth.
In 2013, we celebrated 10 official years. Innovation and specialization came from the demand of our most prestigious clientele — those allowed to be named and those under NDA. We focused more on our abilities on “streaming,” graphic design, social branding, public relations and event marketing. We also continued to be one of the first to deliver mobile technologies to smaller brands — something we had been doing since around 2010.
Then, rules of event marketing changed.
We once packed audiences to the point they wrapped around blocks to get into our venues. We packed venues so full, people would leave just because there were too many people there. Mixtape release parties often found they didn’t have enough products to hand out to their audiences. We even contributed to many of our larger clientele in having the largest audiences they ever had in their annual events.
Soon, everyone started to adopt the same marketing plan. And, those rules really apply any more. And, let’s face it, if the client has a smaller budget, there is a limit to what can be done in competing against venues with holographs, strippers and free drinks all night long. More focus went on Public Relations, Streaming Shows and Social Branding. Shorty Produkshins soared throughout the latter half of 2014 and on through 2015 by directing attention to where it was most effective!
Focused on the media, owner, Jessica N. Abraham-Hogan began growing closer ties with many of the media platforms she worked for over the years. She began to realize that these media ties were great in supporting her public relations clientele. With over 16 years of expertise in social branding, this service was only going to be enhanced by combining services with those of the public relations sector. And, then… Shorty Produkshins would change forever!
While we have been engaging in content marketing since around 2001, many companies have realized how effective it actually is. They are beginning to realize the importance of owning a blog and regularly adding content to their websites. They are learning how impactful social shares can be. And, even Google has changed their algorithms to reflect this ideal. Because so many black hat operations have ruined innocent SEO initiative, Google’s new algorithms began focusing more on social impact and content than on anything else.
At Shorty Produkshins, we have already “been there, done that.” We have already done the “expert guest” thing, too. But, what of all of it coming full circle? As a content powerhouse, we are scaling our methods for our clientele in delivering Online and Offline promotions where they matter the most, making them an expert in their field and allowing them to monetize all platforms.
As IT companies are shifting towards all-in-one integrations that promote “productivity, collaboration and communication,” we are enhancing our internal productions, partnering more frequently and communicating to our audiences more. We are making them part of our endeavors. We aren’t just making them part of the conversation, we are making them the conversation. While we will still cater to clientele directly, we are shifting our focus to community.
We have always dedicated ourselves to the underdog. We made it our mission to serve independent artists, brands and causes. We made it our mission to give audiences something to consume. But, everyone is doing that now. Why be like everyone else?
We have built clout (and Klout) over the years. You have been faithful to us, and we are grateful for that. We have come with a new plan of action in serving you… the every day person. In 2016, we shift gears to community. We shift gears to return the support.
In the past, you may have noticed long periods of time that our websites weren’t even finished. This is because we focused on our client’s work, pushing our own work to the back burner. Over the last 13 years, we have been a mostly referral-based company. Our clientele speak on our behalf, as they return for more. Our clientele have even given us permanent positions within their own companies.
In supporting our past, our existing and our future clientele… in supporting our followers, our lurkers, our true fans… in supporting the customers of our clientele… and in supporting the community, it is time to focus on us… Our true mission.
If you ask Mrs. Abraham-Hogan what makes her continue to do what she does with Shorty Produkshins, she will tell you that it is all the support and loyalty she has gained over the years. It is her hope to create a balance between genuine customer service, the people and humanity. As society corrupts, she feels a duty in giving the people hope for change. As innovation explodes, she loves be the first to tell you (it’s probably the little kid in her)… As misinformation is spread, she wants to be sure people are educated. She wants to help a young generation succeed and small businesses stay open. She wants to see people reach their full potential and to be a helping hand.
With 2016, it’s not just a new beginning, it’s a chance for transformation… metamorphosis in branding social… And, we just want you to pay attention as we begin to unveil our plan of action over these next few months…. You will NOT be disappointed. Because, you are the reason for it all!
Getting through ATS with an optimized resume by mirroring Internet Marketing techniques
As a professional in an ever-evolving world of technology, it is absolutely important to keep abreast of changes that occur within the standard operations of society and hiring processes. Not many realize that with the evolution of information systems, most hiring processes are initiated, if not fully executed, Online. Therefore, Hiring Managers and Executive Decision Makers are eliminating the number of resumes that they are scouring each week in order to streamline processes and maximize productivity in the job space, while keeping staffing down to a minimum. Let’s take a deeper look into this science and discover how to get passed all systems filters to, at least, be considered for the position that many are applying for.
Did you know, that as this World of Technology evolves, so does the way the business world approaches Talent Acquisitions and Recruiting? Professionals aren’t just sitting back behind a desk glancing over resumes on a day-to-day basis. Time is valuable and successful corporations are always looking for ways to cut back on unnecessary spending.
As earlier mentioned, many recruiters are more than likely sitting in front of a computer and pounding away at their keyboards, seeking out potential candidates that meet the specific needs of an employer. Whether it is a proprietary system, hosted on internal servers, or through a major job search platform, hiring personnel are able to search out the perfect candidate based on keywords searches. Often, more time is placed in discovering which keywords directly meet those needs of an employer than sifting through a plethora of candidates that do not meet them.
As many job search sites and resume writing services will point out, there is an algorithm in tact that allows recruiters to search for who they want and to avoid those that they do not. This system is dubbed “ATS,” a shortened version of “Applicant Tracking System;” and it is what will make or break a candidate’s forge to the top of the figurative totem pole.
You see, per position a company seeks to fulfill, an average of 250 to 300 candidates are competing to be seen and invited for interview. Unfortunately for most, they will never be seen. The “select few” will be invited to join the hiring process and asked to report for interview. Believe it or not, but many of the top professionals applying per position will actually be overlooked. Hence, these awesome candidates might never have their chance at a dream position and will remain in their current until they finally “hack” the system.
So, how do you hack this system? How do you rise to the top and become recognized as “cream of the crop?” This is simple. Treat your career path as a brand, while showcasing brandYOU through the use of Internet Marketing techniques to enhance your presence in tracking systems. While ATS works slightly differently than Search Engine Optimization (SEO), the core concepts are totally the same!
Similar to SEO, ATS seeks out applicants based on specific keywords. The more keywords to match word-for-word, the better! The applicant will score a higher position within this algorithm. Unlike SEO, these keywords must be presented exactly as described by qualifying terms, as opposed to being strategized for conversational, organic placement and tone. Industry-specific terminology is highly encouraged.
Resumes are expected to be matter of fact, while engaging readers in a professional and narrative description of an applicant’s work history. This means that a phrase, such as “preparation of slideshows” would hold little weight, if any, to “slideshow preparation.” It gets even more complex.
Because ATS seeks applicant achievement over duty, it would be wise to include the latter preceded by a strong action verb and a powerful adjective. Whereas one may include, “Engaged in slideshow preparation” on their resume, another may include “Developed and executed highly professional slideshow preparations.” Not only did the second choice include powerful descriptors, but it also showed process, ability and to what quality. It also showed that it happened on more than one occasion; and therefore, it was not a fluke!
While both verbiages may find themselves ranking higher within ATS than those without optimization, the achievement-based resume will soar much higher. Once these resumes reach the hands of the talent recruiters, which do you think will receive further consideration?
Keeping your language brief within a resume writing is the objective, but the manner in which this is done, is also important. In marketing yourself, you have to sell your achievements by showing how even your performance of duties have made a difference. Your resume must flow smoothly in keeping a reader engaged. As a matter of fact, your resume must flow smoothly, because your resume will merely be skimmed the first few times that it is read. Keeping content mapped out and consistent, the layout must reflect what the body is trying to convey to your future employer.
Structure is equally important to the Applicant Tracking System. Professional profiles may or may not be read with the ATS (The depends on the complexity of the engine being used.), but they must be present when distributing your resume to employers that do get to see your resume. Within each resume, it is highly recommended that one includes a “Competencies Section,” with word choices that must completely be spelled out, at least once prior to abbreviation throughout the resume. This section also acts as a meta tagged “keywords” section within SEO to enhance your resumes overall potential. While many include these keywords into a section described as “Areas of Expertise,” one merely should feel comfortable in their ability to complete duties found within.
Expanding upon the ideal that layouts and consistencies are important for ATS and in mapping out your career, layouts keep resumes organized, experiences highlighted and abilities grouped. It also helps ATS differentiate the content you are submitting, especially in the case of extracting information to a separate database. In a more traditional format, it leaves your resume more visually appealing, balancing out white and negative spacing, and allows your resume to be properly scanned over in the second round of the hiring process, therefore passing the “30-second test.”
In physical hiring processes, a hiring manager is opt to starting at the expertise section, scan through previous employers, read your full education level and then check out the rest of the resume. Sometimes, they go directly to education, skipping experience, altogether, and continue at your affiliations and technical proficiencies. If they are intrigued, they will return to your biography, and then they will read to see if you are worthy of the position they are moved to interview you for. You want to draw eyes to each section of your resume and encourage them to actually read what is written there. Avoid typos and formatting errors. They aren’t read by ATS and can negatively sway the hiring manager to dropping your resume into the garbage bin.
Speaking of garbage bin, industry rules have changed. You do not need to have a references section in your resume. You can drop that in the trash. Because many people lie about references and have others lie for them, it has become an unnecessary part of the resume process. It also takes up space that you can be using for something more valuable. It is wise, however, to keep a resume sheet on hand if your future employer requests one. This also goes for project sheets, which outline project histories, portfolio pieces and publications, unless you have a Curriculum Vitae (CV) resume type.
In creating proper spacing, keeping your resume to a proper link and utilizing negative space, one must consider level of hierarchy. While in ATS, there is no limit to how much space is being used. Understand, if you make it through the computerized process, a warm-blooded soul will be holding your resume in their hands. Length must be made appropriate to your level of hierarchy on the corporate ladder.
It is commonplace that professionals who have held tenure at a job site, entry-level personnel and students may only detail their resume to one page. However, there are some entry level personnel who hold hands with professionals of all industries that will find two-pages tells a clearer story of who they are, whether they have summarized this or are providing quality content in enhancing their resume to meet specific job descriptions. Hiring managers find it acceptable for medical personnel, executives and IT professionals to submit resumes at three to four pages.
Military personnel, medical doctors and professionals in the scientific community are expected to have four or more pages of resume material. This is where special resumes are created, distinctly prepared by federal standards and in CV-structured layouts. Most resumes only include the last 10-12 years to compensate for age-stereotyping hindrances in the hiring process. An undated summary statement may be italicized below to show evidence of a career journey and previous experience in correlation to older-yet-relevant positions held. Remember to present yourself how you want to be perceived. This is Branding 101.
While most resumes are lacking a graphic appeal, many new designs have found ways to give resumes a persona. After all, when looking at a resume, one becomes familiarized with the person that they are potentially hiring. Your layout will tell a hiring manager your level of expertise within the corporate machine. Graphic elements can hint at an “out-of-the-box” or innovative personality, highlighting your ability for creativity. The problem, however, is that ATS often has a hard time reading graphic resumes. And, while there are ways to get around this issue, most creative resumes suffer because some element or another is lacking in the process. Only a select few within the resume-writing world know how to get around this problem and can optimize your resume for discover in ATS engines.
Finally, in marketing yourself through a resume design, one must be aware of engine capabilities. While .doc extensions aren’t often looked at as a “finished project” in a world, where creating a .pdf document helps corporations protect against security and fraud while accepted as official and polished, .doc extensions are the most acceptable form of submission in this day. This document type provides ATS with an easier means of extracting your personal information than does .pdf, .rtf, .txt and even .docx.
Being mindful of your audience, keep both .pdf documents and .doc on hand at all times. After all, you may be submitting your resume directly to a decisionmaker and should plot to appear as polished as possible. In the end, it all comes down to one thing… brandYOU. How are you marketing yourself? What observation of your character would you like them to experience? Stay mindful of ATS when submitting resumes to corporate engines and job search sites; and remember, I am only a messenger of what experts have analyzed over the years and through experience. Good luck!
SweetNote Entertainment, a Production Company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, presents an annual Rock’N’Soul Christmas Show that brings regional musicians, fans and area businesses together to raise toys and donations on behalf of the Toys for Tots Foundation to give to children during the holiday season. Each year, SweetNote collaborates with local businesses and corporations to make sure that everyone involved goes home “just a little bit happier.” Products and services are donated to the company and given away during raffles and to bands, who perform during this charitable event. According to B. Michael Smith, owner of SweetNote Entertainment and Coordinator for this event, set for December 14, 2014, “The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. Our organization is dedicated to the process of making that happen, but we need your help (speaking to artists and businesses all over the United States).”
Playas Mob Radio, a weekly radioshow that is based in Fort Pierce, broadcasts out of 6 FM stations around the State of Florida and to an International fan-base of Online listeners. Playas Mob Radio, dedicated to breaking Independent Artists, Businesses and Causes, will be presenting one winning band or business with a promotional radio spot during a high profile show to talk about their brand’s history and any upcoming releases. If it is a band that wins this promo spot, they will also have their latest radio-edited release placed into regular rotation during The Playas Mob Radio Show on WJFP FM. The show will be live on-air and will also be archived for promotional usage for the brand in both Online and Offline arenas.
Shorty Produkshins, an Orlando-based Online Promotions Company specializing in Social Branding and Event Marketing and also affiliated with Playas Mob Radio, will be giving away a few items to encourage entrepreneurship, musicianship and, of course, giving during the holiday season and into the new year. A spokesperson for Shorty Produkshins states that, “It is our way of giving back, while helping artists and brands find awareness in the new year. We initially were giving away one graphic art in the form of a digital flyer to one winner to help boost their visibility, professionally and with intrigue, and we still are. However, we realized the need brands have in establishing credibility and awareness that lasts the lifetime of their career. So, we decided that we could write articles, as well, for five brands or bands who really deserve it — which would be more beneficial to them than a graphic design that serves the purpose of one project or announcement. These services will also really benefit their Internet Marketing and SEO efforts.” They have donated one graphic design and five written articles to promote independent progress in the Pittsburgh Area.
With December 14, just two days away, we can only imagine the magic that the night will behold. Artists, businesses and audiences at Pittsburgh’s Sing Sing venue at the Waterfront can expect a night of entertainment, holiday spirit and motivation to usher them into 2015. Performing at this event, SweetNotes own Lyndsey Smith and Soul Distribution will take the spotlight alongside acts such as Kinetic, Sun Hound, Hakim Rasheed, Mike Why, Ine, Gene Stovall, Devan Rue and Brian Woods. With a roster like this, this is definitely a night to remember!
“Set for his first ever appearance in the State of Florida, Sabir Bey of The Sabir Bey Show visits Orlando, Florida on August 10, 2014 at Cafe Annie in Downtown. A highly controversial, yet respected ‘teacha’ in the Moorish Community (a term coined by rapper, KRS-One), Sabir Bey has been a pillar of information and enlightenment to a ‘fallen humanity’ in shedding light on history, culture, law, civics and society in hopes of bringing unity and peace to communities around the Globe. It is this type of teaching that he brings to Orlando in the upcoming weeks.
In reflection of his mission, Sabir is planning a much anticipated lecture with the partnership of Shorty Produkshins — ‘an Online Promotions Company specializing in Social Branding and Event Marketing,’ which has also worked as part of The Sabir Bey Show Team from the beginnings on LA Talk Live and also located in Orlando. The team has a lot planned for the live event and the ways that it will be an interactive experience for those that cannot attend.”
In light of the double lecture broadcast a spokesperson for Shorty Produkshins stated that “Features will be made available to these Online attendees to interact as an active audience participant as if they were there in the flesh! We will be holding live Twitter parties, using the hashtags ‘#TheSabirBeyShow,’ ‘#ElementsofHipHop’ and ‘#CriticalRaceTheory’. We will also be integrating Facebook into this Plan of Action. And, last but not least, we will be holding a live chat on TheSabirBeyShow.com chat rooms in celebration of the redesign of the Official site for Sabir Bey and all of his works. It is on the site, also that people may view archives of previous episodes and lectures, as well as buy presale tickets for this event, which offer a free DVD Download alongside purchase.” There are seven DVDs available, ranging from History to Hip Hop and covering topics of Nationality, Prophet Noble Drew Ali, Pan Africanism and more!
Topics of conversation and lecture for August 10th’s event include “Critical Race Theory,” discussing Nationality and the restraints of law through due to “color of law,” as well as on the topic of “The Elements of Hip Hop and Our Responsibility to the Media.” There will also be dinner and drinks available during the lecture with a “True School” intermission of Hip Hop spun by DJ Mo of WPRK FM also in Orlando.
During “Critical Race Theory,” Sabir Bey “wants you to think critically as he explains how ‘Police Brutality’ is actually ‘Terrorism’ and how it is important to ‘know who you are’ when dealing with the law. He explains how we have been labeled with ‘color’ and not Nationality and why it is detrimental to proclaim your Nationality to protect yourself and family from injustices to your human rights.”
Especially important to the Greater Central Florida Area, Sabir Bey will discuss “Castle Doctrine” and how it conflicts with “Stand Your Ground” laws, which have proven to have different results for different parties, as in the case with Trayvon Martin, as in comparison to other cases later in the year. “He will speak, basically, about how some ‘terrorists’ can get away with MURDER… LITERALLY!” Sabir will also cover and reference Moorish Science and History, as well as Etymology, while explaining “how the media only seems to justify a false image, instigate conflict and influence our society as a whole in a negative fashion with insight on what we can do to change it!”
While the first lecture may seem sharply contrasted with the second one, “The Elements of Hip Hop and Our Responsibility to the Media, he will explain how stereotypes are created, confirmed and manifested due to distributing false content to the media and not realizing that we have the power to create positive imagery within it, hence uplifting our communities and societies therein.
“With authority from the founding fathers of Hip Hop and through The Universal Zulu Nation, Sabir will cover the history of Hip Hop in its purest artform. He will discuss how Hip Hop as a culture is getting a bad name, because those who control the media have power over the perception of the culture… even though what they present as Hip Hop isn’t even hip hop at all! Like all matter, Hip Hop has elements. Leaving out one element is like leaving Hydrogen out of Water. Without Hydrogen, Water is only Oxygen… or air! There are five basic elements that shoot off offspring of each. Knowledge is often the forgotten element!
Sabir speaks on the legacy of Hip Hop and how WE, as media creators, can ensure the perseverance of the culture though the media and what influence we actually have over society and culture. He speaks on the roots of Hip Hop and how it became contaminated, as well as what we can do to fix it!” Those who are involved in the Media and Entertainment Business, or who are simply “Hip Hop Heads,” are strongly encouraged to attend.

ORLANDO, FL – March 11, 2014–
Shorty Produkshins, an Online Promotions Company from Orlando, is on a Nationwide search to find new faces for their current marketing teams. Seeking Independent Contractors to actively seek new clientele, Shorty Produkshins is ready to well-reward them for their efforts, according to a March 11, 2014 press release by the company itself.
Shorty Produkshins has grown over the last ten years and has expanded borders from Orlando and Pittsburgh origins to other regions around the World that include places like: Atlanta, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Memphis, Detroit, Punxsutawney, Philadelphia, Toronto, Nigeria and more! They provide clientele with Social Branding and Event Marketing options that are optimized through “Advanced Internet Marketing and SEO tactic.” They also provide current clientele with Public Relations, Mobile Marketing, Design Strategies, and Consultation.
As the company has grown, and with recently adding new services to its menu, Shorty Produkshins current marketing teams have been faced with the challenge of time and possibility. Shorty Produkshins believes in direct focus and dedication to the creative process for each project in providing quality service in a timely manner. Because of this, it has become more difficult to continue ongoing efforts to market services to new and potential clientele. This is an important part of ensuring a successful future for the business. It is also the reason the current campaign has been prompted.
They are seeking “self-motivated” individuals that demonstrate ethic, professionalism and determination to add to the roster. As Independent Contractors, they would be allowed to set their own schedules, work from home and make as much profit from commission as they allow themselves to acheive. They will be marketing in-demand servicing from Shorty Produkshins that is geared towards individual brands, small businesses and non-profit organizations.
“Because the power of ‘Social’ is strong, Shorty Produkshins intends on hiring those Independent Contractors from a variety of backgrounds and education levels, as long as the individuals perform ethically, professionally and with great determination while having fun! Individuals will be working from home but are encouraged to network at larger events and gatherings. They will be working closely with the Shorty Produkshins marketing team from around the World through an Online platform created specifically with them in mind.”
They are asking individuals to submit resumes, along with a written answer or video reply to the questions: “Why I am qualified to be added to the team, and why would I be a great asset to the team?” Strong communication skills are a necessity. They are only interested in “individuals who can demonstrate a passion for Social branding and Event Marketing.”
Ideal for “ those individuals who are well known in their communities, are attending college, are involved in the Entertainment Business and/or are “Power Hustlers” who can prompt and close sales quickly,” they are asking applicants to direct all deliverables to firstname.lastname@example.org… Will you make the cut?
