A Young Man with a Plan to Connect
This amazing young man had a vision and had the focus to see it through. Now, he is building. You are invited to join him... Introducing The Black Web Street!
What is The Black Web St.?
The Black Web St. is a place where people can go to find Black businesses in their area and online. Our motto is, “Connecting Black Businesses to Black Consumers” and our goal is to keep our dollars in our community.
How did you come up with the name?
I went to a Kwanzaa Celebration and someone mentioned that there used to be a “Black Wall Street” which was a community that had hundreds of Black businesses in their community and I’m trying to create something similar but on the internet. That is why I made it The Black Web St. Before I left that Kwanzaa celebration, I decided to create this platform. I was thinking about how it would look and flow, and be categorized. By the end of the celebration, I had created the whole thing in my head. From there, it was just a matter of following through.
How does the website work?
Businesses are split into Online or Brick & Mortar, then further broken down into subcategories by what they have to offer: Food, Products, and Services. You can search between categories or by location. The search is within the United States right now, but hopefully, we can expand beyond the US later.
Can anyone get listed?
If you are of African descent and own a brand, company, or business, we welcome you to join The Black Web St. There are so many customers who are looking for your services even now, but need a way to find you. Let’s tell them where you are!
What is the difference between free and paid membership features?
We have something for everyone. The free plan is basically the bare minimum. It allows you to be searched, and have links to your website and social media. The Intermediate and Premium plans give more power within Black Web St. With a paid Intermediate account, you can post events and show up as a second priority in search results. With a paid Premium account, you can post events, articles, and come first priority in search results.
What are your plans for the rest of 2020?
Our plan for 2020 is to have a place for Black consumers to find everything they are looking for in one place. The best part is to have everything they are looking for by Black-owned businesses.
