5 Reasons Why Black-Owned Businesses Should Advertise

Advertising is one of the vital aspects of a business. It is the most direct and important connection to the audience.
As more and more brands enter the market, businesses are starting to struggle for the attention of their target audience with consumers having more options as compared to before.
The average person sees at least 5,000 ads per day which means that your brand’s advertisements can reach out to a large audience while conveying the unique selling points of your products or businesses in just a few minutes or even seconds.
Often black business owners are not aware of the many resources that are available to them.
However, advertisements have been made easy and worth it now.
Whether you are advertising for your start-up or for the company you’re working for, one simply can’t deny that advertising has grown to be an essential aspect of every black business.
Some black business owners question whether or not investing in an advertising budget will be worth it and that is a big mistake.
Here are five reasons why black-owned businesses should embrace advertising.

● Advertising generates brand loyalty: Advertising will enable black-owned businesses to target their customers and instil a lasting connection with them. It instils a sense of familiarity and trust within the consumer, ensuring that they remain loyal to your business. The advertisement makes use of images (Display ads), words (Audio ads), and ideals that target your desired demographic and encourage them to stay devoted to your business.
● Advertising attracts new customers: As business becomes booming, the black business market is constantly changing and new consumers are moving in and out of your demographic zone. New consumers mean a new target audience that your advertisements will reach. Advertising shows consumers that are new to the market that your business is the top of the line and the one that they want to visit.
● Advertising helps your business compete: There are only so many consumers in the market that are willing to buy your product at any given time. Especially for Black business owners who are in a society whereby African Americans are not afforded the same opportunities as white people. Advertising helps businesses stay ahead of the game while competing with other businesses. Advertising is how you convince the consumer that you are the one they should choose.
● Advertising keeps your consumer up to date: It’s always amazing when a brand comes up with a new product but it is worrisome when the brand finds it hard to put that new product out there. However, when a new product or event is ready to launch, advertising allows your consumer to be informed and aware of the details. Advertising does the work for your consumer, as opposed to forcing your consumer to hunt down the information.
● Advertising keeps your business at the top of your consumer’s mind: With so many options available to consumers oftentimes they will want to shop around and compare different products. Advertising ensures that your company is always at the front of a consumer’s mind reminding them why they should choose you.

Black business owners are more likely to face unique challenges when starting their business and when trying to get their brand out there to the target audience.

Esin O Faja: Celebrating and nurturing a culture of Tolerance

In accordance with the ForeMedia Group feature (LiveTV) commitment in covering and curating exhibition of real-time live events of diverse Afro-centric content, we are excited to announce our partnership with Tunde Odunlade Art and Connexions and the official media partner of the 1st edition of the International Exhibition of Multimedia Arts and Cultures.

The spotlight on Nigeria’s religious landscape could not be any brighter than at the Tunde Odunlade Arts & Culture Connexions in Ibadan, Nigeria. Instead of reading or hearing about Nigeria’s diverse religious beliefs, visitors get to immerse in diverse work of arts, programmes and services with a theme – Religion.

In a climate of religious intolerance and ideological conflicts worldwide, the exhibition, featuring ten artists, is an example of how freedom of expression and religious tolerance strengthens a nation by enriching its cultural, political and artistic narratives. Side by side, these ten artists incorporates beliefs from, Christianity, Islam, Yoruba tradition belief, Buddhism, Confucianism. Their diverse interpretation and mix of materials is a symbol of Yoruba’s integration of hybrid spiritual practices and modern values.

The Exhibition serves as an attempt at rediscovering and reinforcing the Yoruba uniqueness and perception of religion as an intervention in the heavily politicized and intolerant environment that is emerging in present day Nigeria.

That hybrid of modern values and religious diversity is most evident in the works of Visual Artist and Theatre Production Designer, Tolulope Ajayi. Tolulope’s central message for the exhibition is that; ‘whatever you do or practice as a religion, either a Christian, muslim, freethinker, just be a good person.’  Her recent experiment and discovery of the ability to paint with stones, which has birthed a new art movement, STONISM which she pioneers.

The exhibition also features works by Kola Akintola a Christian pastor and lecturer. Using sculpture and vain painting (a technique he innovated in 2004), Kola urges each person to re-examine the meaning of the cross in their own lives. The cross represents sacrifice and he admonished everyone to embrace the sacrificial living and know that their action or omission has a direct consequence on the other person.

Upon entering the exhibition, one is engulfed in curtains of fairies made of textile draping over walls and tree-like monuments by Tunde Odunlade. Tunde’s projects are an exploration of felinity using textiles. Not only is religious co-existence possible, but the Yoruba culture is an example of a how spiritual plurality is integral to a thriving society said Tunde Odunlade. Tunde Odunlade further opines that; religion is a personal thing, a thing of the heart that should be privately and not become a thing of imposition on other individuals.

The works of Atayero Samuel defies artistic genres. It’s easy to see the performer in him through his bold and expressive creations. He enjoys expressing himself through embroidery with needle and thread, batik resist techniques in textile designs. For Atayero; his work seeks to re-establish the fact that no religion is bad, there are only bad people. Every religion preaches moral obligations and civil duties to one another but most observant of these religions neglect to do these. And it is only in doing this that we practice true religion. Religion is a two-way traffic, one to God, one to your neighbour.

Among the artist is Ogini Bernard. A pidgin playwright, pidgin scholar, translator, theatre artist and thread artist. His works are very striking as he depicts ordinary day-to-day events captured in Art. As viewers moved freely through his work, he expressed the need for everyone to have a “clean belle” and embrace love, which is the fundamental thing for all religion. Love will make us all cohabit peacefully and make the world a better place. He is also proud to have the public participate in the exhibition.

The artistes spoke to us on their thought process while creating their masterpieces and the message they were conveying with each artwork. This will in turn dovetail into a documentary series where viewers get to experience art at its finest and correct the lenses with which they gaze at Religion.
