The first black-owned social media marketing agency was founded in 2008 by an entrepreneur and an investor, Andre Kay and officially established in 2009.

There are various black-owned digital marketing agencies, but few of them offer social media marketing services. Social media is an integral part of the modern marketing strategy, and without it, one might find themselves at an unfair disadvantage.

In the age where social media is present, the power of just a few keystrokes can reach millions in a matter of minutes. Social media has created a new business opportunity for black entrepreneurs to start their social media marketing agencies.

Our digital marketing agency, Sociallybuzz.com, specializing in social media marketing, was named one of the best entrepreneurial companies in America and has featured in many online news outlets, including Mashable, The Huffington Post, Social Media Week, Franchise.com, and Entrepreneur.

With over eleven years of experience in social media marketing, social media managementsocial media advertising, and reputation management, you will get a wide range of social media services that will help you get your business the attention it deserves.

We believe that more black-owned agencies would offer social media marketing services to allow for more diversity in the industry.

Yet, we are the first social media marketing agency in the world owned by a black man!

Watch the video below to see how we help our clients dominate in social media.

Customer Testimonials

I have always been hesitant to hire external services to run my company’s social media but decided to let Sociallybuzz take over. I can honestly say that it was an excellent business decision. Not only has it freed up some of my time to focus on the operations of the business, but our social media presence has expanded greatly. Sociallybuzz takes care of every social media aspect, even assisting in putting on special events. They are reliable, accurate, thorough, and diligent. I am absolutely satisfied with the results and look forward to working with Sociallybuzz for a long time to come.

We highly value the services provided by Sociallybuzz in the development of Golden Krust’s social media footprint. They have been outstanding partners with us as we strategically pursue deeper engagement with all our valued customers who are active in the “social-stratosphere”. Not only is the Sociallybuzz team a fun and innovative team to work with, but their response time is remarkable. I can always count on them to deliver on or ahead of deadline. In this dynamic marketplace in which we operate, it is important to have a team that stays on top of and ahead of their game.

Our experience with running lead ads with Sociallybuzz has been nothing but positive. Kevin is very receptive and tuned in to what works and what doesn’t. We have gained business and built our brand locally by running these ads. We don’t have much time to do outside promos to gain new business. This is super easy and works. New leads come in every day.
