She Boss Talk always has a lot in store for small businesses during Black History Month. One of the ways She Boss Talk is celebrating Black History Month in 2022 is by creating a Black Business Shopping Guide. Our Black Business Guide aims to promote 25 Black-owned businesses to our massive network for Black History Month (February) and Black Business Month (August). 

The COVID-19 pandemic is still raging on and has hit Black businesses really hard. As a matter of fact, Black businesses are among the hardest hit. According to Forbes, COVID-19 has disproportionately affected small Black-owned businesses in terms of financial impact.

In addition to that, The Federal Reserve Bank of New York said that 58% of Black-owned businesses were on the verge of financial distress even before COVID-19. 

Therefore we wanted to help spotlight Black Businesses so they can get the exposure they need. Here’s what you need to know about our Black Business Shopping Guide.

Who Can Apply?

You’ll be the perfect applicant for our shopping guide if you’re:

  • Black-owned and operated (at least 90% majority ownership)
  • Able to provide a direct link to the featured product where interested buyers can purchase it (either via a website, social media, or other retail platform)
  • Able to ship products within the US

Why You Should Sign Up For the Black Business Shopping Guide 

If you’re a Black Business owner, the Black Business Shopping Guide can increase your:

  • Sales
  • Leads
  • Brand Awareness
  • Website Traffic

Your business deserves to be seen and sometimes that means investing in its promotion. Consider this as part of your marketing efforts. We are confident that you could see a return on your investment. 

We will market the shopping guide to our massive network to ensure your business is in front of more people.

Application Tips

If you want to increase your chances of getting sales and more exposure from our shopping guide we suggest:

  • Submitting a high-quality image
  • Selling your product or service using great copy. Include benefits of your product and why consumers should choose your product or service.
  • Checking for grammatical errors and broken links
  • Opting for the special feature add-on so you can get even more exposure

How You Can Sign Up

If you’re ready to introduce your business to our network and increase your chance of sales, sign up today. We’re only taking 25 businesses and people have already signed up.

The deadline is Wednesday, January 19, 2022, but waiting until the last minute may result in you missing out on a feature.

We are committed to helping small businesses so we look forward to promoting your business!
