Realizing how difficult it can be to find Black-owned businesses is why Lynn Graham created ClickUrban, an online directory of Black-owned products and services.

Visitors to ClickUrban will have access to quickly local a business or specialty including, Black attorneys, realtors, banks, fashion boutiques, and more through the online platform

“I believe that Black people want to support one another, and we need to be more proactive in representing ourselves. For example, we are the largest consumer of hair products, yet own only a few of the products in the hair arena. As Black women, it would be so great if we knew exactly where to buy and sell hair products, or where to find the right makeup for our skin tone,” Graham told TNJ.com in an interview.

Dubbed as “the new Black Angie’s List,”  Graham said the goal of the platform is dedicated to nurturing diversity and the style, culture, and taste of all things Blacks and beautiful. 

“We are fulfilling a real need, making it easier for local businesses to be found online. Now finding a local business will be even easier, by simply typing into our site which holds a trusted network of top-rated local businesses,”  said Lynn Graham.

In addition to the website’s company listings, ClickUrban’s business partners can also use the website to market their business if they don’t have a website presence of their own.

“They can use the platform within ClickUrban as a website,” Graham reveals. “Depending on which package they buy, they have access to customer reviews, product features, analytics, coupons, event and property listings, videos, blogs, article publishing and much more.

Packages for business owners include a basic service ($9.99 monthly) and Premium ($29.99 monthly).
