TITLE: The Haitian And His Wallet

I was having a discussion with a friend the other day and I
would like to bring it to your attention.

He said that Haitians do not support what is going on in the
Haitian Community.

So I came to your defense!

By the way, if you live in south Florida, you need to know
this:

Café Au Lait, the movie, is coming out this weekend

The premiere is Friday, July 1st
@ Shores Theater, Miami, FL

If you are a Magnum Band Fan, Come support Dadou Pasquet in
his Movie Debut.

The movie Café Au Lait "Bien Sucre Papa" is a new film by
George Jiha starring Pasha Brandt, Carl Fombrun, NickyMix,
Aubry Blague, Dadou Pasquet…

Ok! Where were we?

One mistake that many people make in our community is that
they put all of us in one basket, the Haitian Basket.

They assume that because we're Haitian, we must eat Griot,
Rice and Beans, and love konpa music.

Wrong!

I myself have made that mistake on the web.

I have some websites that I used to classify as "Non Haitian
Websites"

For example:

I have an Internet marketing articles website:
The-R-I-M.com

This is a website with hundreds of articles that relates to
making money with your computer.

To call it "Non Haitian" means Haitians do not need that
type of information.

So each week, I am sending you emails in English and I am
excluding a part of my network from you.

You thought I was smart!

As you can see I am not judging anyone, I am only judging
myself. Instead of asking you what you want, I assume.

I was wrong, I don't want to assume anymore. Tell me what
you want, I want you tell me what kind of information you're
looking for.

I was listening to an Internet marketing seminar and the
speaker said "show me a million people who are hungry and
you're looking at a millionaire".

If you already know what people want, then all you have to
do is supply it.

I think many Haitian businessmen and women still have that
mentality "Build it and they will come".

If this is true then why do companies like Coca Cola and
McDonald's still advertise?

One thing I know for sure is that when it comes to marketing
in the Haitian Community, the young Haitian American
generation has been completely excluded.

If you are a Haitian parent, when was the last time your
"Americanized" son or daughter was looking forward to
participate in a Haitian Activity?

How did they find out about it?

So when someone says "I don't get any support from our
Haitian Community" I wonder which community he is talking
about:

The Haitians living in Haiti?

The Typical Haitians who live here but don't exactly "Live"
here?

Or the ones who are born here or have crossed over?

Yes, we are all Haitians but we are different.

When it comes to a Haitian and his wallet, he's not only
Haitian, he is a consumer.

As a consumer he wants what every consumer wants:

Quality, convenience, low prices, you name it.

M'ale!
