Donna is being honored with a ZBest Profile Award for her outstanding online presence, created using Ziggs’ free profile service. Her online profile can be found in the Ziggs Index of Professionals.

Introduced in January 2005 to help set the standard for a quality, professional, online profile, the ZBest Award is awarded monthly to both one individual and one organization that has developed and presented the most professional online profile listed in the Ziggs Index. Enjoying rapid global growth, Ziggs now provides people search and profile services for customers in over ninety countries. Donna was selected for this honor from this pool of professional candidates that span the globe.

Donna introduces her professional online presence, created with Ziggs Profile Manager™, with a classic black and white photograph and an intriguing personal narrative. Describing her varied leadership roles in business administration, academics and entrepreneurship, Donna introduces her personal penchant for bringing effective organization, time management, and communication skills to every pursuit. Her aptitude in these areas is serving her well in her present roles as bookkeeper for You're Invited! Gifts & Paper, marketer for Bryan Turner’s Music and founder of her own business, Donna Nix Photography.

In addition to her inviting and detailed biography, Donna's online profile includes an interview that allows viewers to understand the diverse passions and experiences that have shaped her studies, her work and her life. From her philanthropic service with local charitable initiatives such as Hands On Nashville and the 2005 "Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler - Encore!" fundraiser, which raised over $37,000 to aid the Hurricane Katrina Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, to her experience balancing full time professional pursuits with Bachelor studies at Belmont University, Donna expresses both the care and tenacity that guides her personal and professional leadership vision.

Winners are chosen by Ziggs at the close of a monthly review process that includes an assessment of the professionalism, content value, brand value and creativity of all online profiles in the Ziggs Index. The professionalism measure weighs the overall quality of the entire profile, including the photograph. The content value measure rewards profiles that present the most valuable information to a prospect or client reviewing the profile. The brand value measure assesses the profile’s level of success in communicating the company brand and corporate identity within the profile. The creativity measure seeks to reward profiles that are creative in their efforts to communicate all of the above three elements. In combination, these measurements set the standard for the definition of a quality online profile.
