We're taking Nxt Big Thing Charlotte to the next level!
Are you ready to come with us?
Yes, we're still doing in-person events! However, we believe in leveraging every platform and opportunity to help black-owned business thrive.
18 Vendors Needed
We will be live streaming a virtual black business showcase to kick start 2023! YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS! We will be streaming live simultaneously in our Facebook Page, Alisia Hutchinson’s Personal Facebook Page, and YouTube Channel. This will be a PUBLIC virtual event so it will be able to be shared EVERYWHERE! The views can easily reach several thousands. All virtual pop up sessions will be able to be replayed and remain up even after streaming is done.
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
Each vendor will get 10 mins to showcase their products or services. On average a sales pitch is no longer than 2 mins, so we feel 10 mins will be more than enough time. The average consumer will not allow you do a whole presentation before purchasing.
Think about it! How long are radio and TV commercial ads?
During your "10 Minutes of Fame" you'll have a chance to interact and engage with viewers as well as the host/co-host. Yes!
You will be emailed further information on utilizing the streaming software, time of your showcase, and etc after signing up by 1/30/23.
Who doesn't have 10 minutes to grow their business? Do you hear anyone? I don't either!!
WHY GO VIRTUAL WITH US?
We already have a curated audience of black-owned small business supporters. This will be very different than going live from your own Facebook Page or social media.
Doing your own streaming you would be limited to just that audience. With us, you’ll be live streaming simultaneously to several different streaming platforms at once (Not just a share to several different platforms). We’re actually putting on a showcase where viewers can enjoy different products & services which will keep them engaged.
