More and more African American business owners are realizing how important search engine optimization (SEO) is to their bottom line. They are coming to see that SEO is just as important as web site design, branding, copywriting, and mobile-friendliness. Here are five Black-owned companies that have you covered.
1. The SEO Queen:
The SEO Queen digital agency was formed because Zhe Scott was tired of fighting to be respected equally and compensated as much as her white male peers. After building up a small agency from $0 to $500,000 of recurring revenue, she was tired of being on food stamps while making companies millions. She decided to bet on her self and created The SEO Queen. Over her career, she has led teams that have gotten over 300 companies on Google page 1, and gotten them their share of the 2 trillion searches that are happening on Google annually.

2. Goodeyo Social Media:
Eric and Fazia Gooden are both LA natives and shortly after getting married in 2017, they launched Goodeyo Social Media Marketing Agency. Social Media is the new immediate, effective, and personal advertising tool. Americans spend 37 minutes a day on social media and it is now the top internet activity. With over 12+ years of social media marketing and advertising, they wanted to help serve the businesses and entrepreneurs in their community (in a different way).
