BlackExperts.com was created in response to a growing epidemic of African-American experts being overlooked by the media. The concept was to allow entrepreneurs and authors the opportunity to profile themselves in front of journalists and radio/TV producers.
This revolutionary idea has successfully created a win-win situation for individuals looking for more publicity, and media companies looking for new and fresh talent to interview. Many of the people listed on BlackExperts.com are reporting phenomenal feedback.
Here's what some are saying:
"Being listed on BlackExperts.com has garnered me several speaking engagements totaling $7k! Additionally, I have appeared on numerous radio shows - most noteworthy, The Michael Baisden radio show, and I was just interviewed for Essence Magazine." -- Elon Bomani, a Black health/wealth expert
"TV One's Black Men Revealed called and booked me. I was also booked to speak at the Minority Health Partnership in Battle Creek Michigan. All of this was due to my listing on BlackExperts.com." -- Dr. Alduan Tartt, a Black motivational speaker
"I have done about 5 interviews so far, and I have three speaking engagements that I'm waiting to confirm. Thank you for a great experience." -- Joseph Carswell, Business Expert
What makes the service work so well, is that media journalists and producers can discover and research prospects that they otherwise weren't familiar with. Because the profiles and pictures of the experts are displayed in a resume-style format, individuals can effectively showcase their expertise.
To be listed on BlackExperts.com, users must pay an annual $200 fee - which also includes a listing on BlackSpeakers.com. The media, however, can use the web site at no cost.
Currently, the site features more than 150 profiles - with new profiles being added each week. Media surfers include producers from the Tom Joyner Morning Show, the Michael Baisden Show, the Tony Brown Show, TV One and hundreds of other African American media outlets.
