A great local San Diego success story! NextLevel has reached a new landmark with 15 years of double-digit growth and support for local and national markets. NextLevel celebrates this anniversary with great pride as the company remains organically funded, has thrived through two major recessions, a dot.com bubble and to this day, maintains a perfect record with zero complaints via the Better Business Bureau.
Started in 1999, NextLevel developed a fully redundant, high-availability internet backbone which was created for first responders and mission-critical clients, whose interruption of internet connection could result in the loss of life, money, or reputation. These first clients still remain with NextLevel today because of the unsurpassed quality of both NextLevel’s technology and unmatched customer service.
Throughout the last 15 years, the company has introduced new private WAN, co-location and unified communications services all built on its mission-critical internet foundation. This year, the company established the NextLevel Cloud, a fully managed private cloud network for organizations looking for a modern, cost effective and secure alternative to building and maintaining their own cloud based communications systems.
Several years ago, NextLevel focused its sales and growth model on the reseller channel to break new ground outside of the California market. This strategic expansion, coupled with high adoption and low churn rates of NextLevel Voice and NextLevel Cloud services, resulted in the company’s solutions becoming rapidly deployed across the nation.
As NextLevel has evolved its company and technology, it was also imperative to introduce a new brand and corporate image. Targeted towards a national audience and broader verticals, earlier this year, the company launched a redesigned website and company logo which truly reflects its full range of cloud based products. NextLevel is committed to making communications as easy as possible by providing a fully managed system, unmatched customer service and unbeatable value for today’s business.

Is the traditional newspaper op-ed dead? We ask the question because according to the Newspaper Association of America (NAA), newspapers are dying, and so is their circulation. The NAA’s most recent report shows that the total circulation of newspapers is now just over 1,300 daily and 900 on Sundays. Total daily circulation has bottomed out at roughly 44 million. Sunday circulation, however, is up, just slightly, to approximately 49.5 million readers.
Yet even today, an opinion-editorial (sometimes called a guest opinion or bylined article) published on The Wall Street Journal’s editorial page can be worth tens of thousands of dollars in FREE, earned media.
And who doesn’t want that?
Fortunately, today’s newspaper op-ed shelf life is longer than the life of a sheet of black-and-white typed ink. A published piece lives on past its publication date on the Internet, through repostings on blogs and on social media. Cumulatively, that equals a gazillion eyeballs that still care about the opinion-editorial page: thought leaders, lawmakers, concerned citizens.
But please - pretty please - learn to write them right.
Here are some tips to write an effective opinion-editorial that will land you in your local newspaper, and with the right wordsmithing, could land you in a top-tier publication.
