This initiative is the way for me to foster an economy that will ensure funding to black owned businesses and reduce unemployment rate among black workers.

Research has found that if higher-income Black consumers spent at least $1 out of every $10 with Black-owned businesses, it would generate one million jobs for African Americans.

10 ways to support black businesses

We can take look at the story of Black Wall Street in Tulsa as an exemple of a strong black economy.

In Oklahoma, the forces of segregation were gaining strength. Housing segregation was legalized, banning blacks from living in white neighborhoods. The segregation of Tulsa, ironically, strengthened Greenwood’s black business district. The dollars earned by Greenwood’s black professionals as well as the black domestics who made money on the white side of town seemed never to leave Greenwood. Merchants boasted that a black dollar circulated through the black community twenty- six times before it left. As Jim Crow laws were passed throughout the country, the economic effects experienced in Greenwood were replicated, as black communities become economically independent and black merchants and businesses marketed to a captive and loyal market.

Origins of Black Wall Street

How to stay on top the list on searchblack.business

The list of black owned businesses is organized in a way to show top rating first and recent additions second. With this sorting, we want visitors to discover new businesses that are being added and being recommended to the website regularly. To put it bluntly, the more a company is loved by the community the higher the possibility for it to be on top of the list longer.

Word of mouth and Search Black Business

Most people looking to hire a black entrepreneur rely on their friends recommandations. Word of mouth is the best way you can grow your business because it demonstrates that previous customers has turned into promoters for your business (a free sales & marketing workforce).

"The success of a word-of-mouth marketing strategy relies, ultimately, on having a great product or service--and frankly a great company--that people can get behind"

The Qualities of a Powerful Word-of-Mouth Marketing Strategy

However, many times black owned businesses are being considered as businesses with poor quality products or services. On a bigger picture, someone can receive poor services or products from any company for multiple reasons. The reason why we seems to profile black owned businesses as such is that we often lack of options to choose from our friends recommendations which always limit to one or two businesses.

With searchblack.business I am working to provide a wide selection of black owned businesses to reduce the low quality perception of black owned businesses and increase consumer spending in the black community. As an example we have now 48 black owned e-commerce businesses you can shop from.

Brooke Stephens’, author of “Talking Dollars and Making Sense,” research has found that a dollar circulates in Asian communities for 30 days, in Jewish communities approximately 20 days, and in white communities 17 days. In contrast, a dollar circulates in the Black community only six hours.
