aBIZinaBOX Cannabis User Registration
aBIZinaBOX Cannabis User Registration is one of the very few times we have EVER asked users of our website to do something for us. Some of the visitors to our website are keenly aware of it content…that the website is approaching 1,300 pages deep with 150 regular pages, 275 FAQs, 325 blog articles with an average length of 1,700 words. Our articles are published to and syndicated out on Cannabis Law Report, Green Market Report, MG Retailer and other cannabis industry publications.
The website has grown in size of platform, features, and number of users served. We continue to offer over 95% of our website content to the public with charge. The cost of operating the website inclusive of website-specific human support costs, but exclusive of any cost for professionals that supply content [eg. CPA’s and attorneys] is approximate $12K/month. A portion of the costs supports our firm’s professional practice. However, a significant component of the cost relates to our efforts to make a contribution to the success of the industry. Some of this is “old news”, what is new is that we are going to make some new advanced tools available to Registered Users of our website who are not Patrons or Firm Clients [definitions of the terms appear at the bottom of this page. The tools included a new advanced Post Index with filters that greatly enhance the usefulness of our post index, and facilitate sharing out of the content in many ways. An illustration of that functionality appears below.
and the Category filters appear below
By using the Category filters, a Registered User of the website can narrow the posted that they need to search through.
We encourage you to use the form below to become a Registered User of our website…which has no cost, will result in our articles being emailed to you and your getting access to some of the advanced tools on our website.
We need to be very clear in defining the differences in the visitors to our website and social media.
Guests – are anyone that chooses to visit our site, engage with our content, and hopefully use it to advance their business. We welcome guests as they are the broad industry community.
Registered Users – have registered with our website, providing their name, username, and email address available to the website. The registration provides access to a number of advanced features including our searchable Post Index.
Patrons – have made a financial outlay and a choice to access our tools, premium content and engage with other Patrons and our professionals. We share content and try to answer and respond to short questions we can answer off the top of our heads.
Firm Clients – have engaged us to provide compliance, consultation, transactional and representation services. We place the success of our Firm Clients above just about everything we do. They rely on us for services and advice, and they pay our bills. They have a priority over Guests and Patrons for obvious reasons.
We need strongly emphasize that this offering is NOT more of the same. The skill levels of our professionals are exceptional, the services we provide require substantial experience and skills. If we reflect carefully we can count on one hand the number of firms which we believe have comparable skills in the entire California cannabis market. The articles we publish and the content on our website “telegraph” that message. Perhaps our expertise is most clearly seen in our published comments and participation in the process of commenting on Proposed Regulations and engagement with BCC, CDPH-MCSB, CFDA-CalCannabis, and CDTFA.
Our engagement is with senior Policy Analysts, Branch Chiefs, General Counsel, and Agency Directors. We made a substantial commitment to invest time, dollars and sweat to be part of “the solution” which is a successful transition to a highly regulated market which we hope will thrive.
