Today starts Black History Month and I want to cover something related to the month on my blog for the entire month. However, I wasn’t sure what to write about. Last year I covered lesser-known individuals in Black History since people tend to focus on the “greatest hits” throughout the month (MLK, Jr., Rosa Parks, etc.). Then the idea hit me: I will focus on black-owned businesses for the entire month.
Why I Will Focus On Black-Owned Businesses
For one, I want to offer free marketing for these businesses. Advertising is expensive and some black-owned businesses will not pay for it because they don’t have the funds. Or if they do advertise they use free ways or “old-school” ways like businesses cards, word-of-mouth, or using flyers.
Second, since many people get their recommendations from social media and/or websites now, I want to bring more attention to black-owned businesses using my website. It’s my help of helping out the community since I’m black.
Finally, I’m working to become a black-owned business and I’m networking within the community. Not only do I want to do well but I want others to succeed too.
