What is the Melanin Enterprise Difference?
Melanin Enterprise is home to the largest Buy Black City Guide in the country. As soon as our members (your customers) open our app, Black owned businesses near them are the first thing that they see. We are the only mobile app in the country making it this easy to find, share, and support Black owned businesses.
We are not a directory! Directories are outdated and don’t provide Black-owned businesses with the laser targeted visibility and communication features that our city guide does.
We provide 21st Century features such as reviews and recommendations, check-ins, favorite capabilities (so you can easily go back to businesses that you want to support in the future), gps location (to find businesses near you), sharing capabilities (to other social media sites), appointment and reservations setting, and an in-app group chat, music streaming platform, and networking events.
We have a combined network of 40,000+ conscious consumers spending money with our registered business daily & we’re growing rapidly. Through our mobile app & events, we’ve helped recycle $98k+ into Black businesses, create 11k+ new & repeat customers, 2 new jobs, and helped small Black owned businesses recruit & hire 14 new hires.
Our members love how easy we make it to find Black-owned businesses near them. Yes, Melanin Enterprise does provide global visibility but we don’t just offer a list of Black Owned Businesses, we are a free, local search and discover Buy Black City Guide mobile app that takes the hassle out of finding Black owned businesses near our customers.
We offer Black owned businesses the following free and preferred business profiles and paid advertising solutions to help you stand out in front of your customers.
