Welcome To The Black Business Directory Website. This site was to created to provide the Black Consumer with knowledge and information to assist them in their efforts to locate and do Business with Black Businesses.
The Black Business Directory mission is to provide Black Business Owners with assistance in gaining more visibility in today’s economic market place. We achieve this by offering many services, some free of charge, which allow black businesses the opportunity to introduce themselves to consumers locally and world wide.
The issue that the Black community faces is the lack of investment in the core community and neighborhoods in which they live. The community suffers from the lack of employment opportunities the businesses located in the community are owned by people who don’t live in the communities . As a result the dollar does not circulate in the community long enough for it to have a positive impact . According to NAACP “Currently, a dollar circulates in Asian communities for a 30 days, in Jewish communities approximately 20 days and white communities 17 days. How long does a dollar circulate in the black community? 6 hours!!! African American buying power is at 1.1 Trillion; and yet only 2 cents of every dollar an African American spends in this country goes to black owned businesses.”
The Black Business Directory is a powerful tool which allows Black Owned Businesses to brand and market themselves to consumers. Consumers are able to find and locate businesses which they hadn’t known about, as well as provide feedback such as rating and reviewing our businesses. If black owned businesses do well they hire black employees who in turn buy goods and services from black owned stores and businesses. Investment then becomes reciprocal and the dollar turns Over more thus improving our community.
