Boomin Marketing is a subsidiary of Black Business Boom, LLC. Launched in 2018, Black Business Boom is a rapidly expanding e-commerce marketplace for Black-owned small businesses. Merchants have the opportunity to grow their businesses by offering coupons and incentives to customers, while shoppers can access over 400 black-owned businesses in cities across the United States. Founder Danielle McGee is on a mission to help black entrepreneurs grow their business and connect with their target audience, while giving consumers a one stop shop to support black owned businesses in their area.
While working hard to help black entrepreneurs through the Black Business Boom app, Danielle noticed a trend in the black business community. While there is a lot of great ideas, talent and passion, there was a void in the area of brand development, strategic planning, marketing, business development and technology. It's one thing to launch a black business, but something entirely different to keep it open. From this realization, Boomin Marketing was born to help black businesses not just survive for the sake of survival...but thrive.
