Welcome to the Blackchat Revolution - The platform for change!
BlackChat's mission is to get our community helping each other through connecting, building, conversing, and sharing, so be creative, informative, educate, inspire and most of all uplift each other and of course have fun. We must not hold each other back, we must elevate each other.
We understand the pain and sadness you feel when we are made to look like violent thugs, dangerous people, chips on our shoulders, the bottom end of society, and the list go on but we are not what the mainstream media and government portray us to be and this platform will be for us and others to see that. We are not here to separate we are here to celebrate and there's nothing wrong with that!

2) Follow, follow, follow, it is important to follow the people, businesses, organisations etc who interest you, who post and comment regularly if you are not following anyone this place will be a lonely place to be, you most likely won't see anyone online.

For Businesses, Organisations Charities
If you look at many successful companies, brands, individuals, or businesses they have a thriving community attached to the product or services they provide. It goes beyond the desire to create repeat purchases or brand loyalty. Intrinsically a sense of community is what we desire as humans – well, most of us. Companies that succeed in this respect exist in many different sectors: the Apple community has been integral to that brand’s success, the same could be said of those who feel just as fervently about Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Black-owned businesses should be looking at building their brand across multiple platforms including creating a brand page or group here on create a black-owned business page where you will find a community whose main priority is looking to support black-owned businesses, organisations and brands. Creating a community around your products or services if executed well can turn a small brand into a phenomenally successful one. However, it is not simply a case of working through a checklist and boom there it is! You have a community it takes time and people appreciate, respect, and are more likely to attach to you when you take time to engage with them. Below are 6 tips to help you on your way.
How do you build a community? – 6 tips
1. Content Rules
You will need to create Content for your community on a regular basis and let your desired community members know the reasons for the community. Explain how the community can interact with you the hosts and with each other. Decide how it will be moderated and what are the best uses of the community.
2. People respond to consistency
Posting regularly is great but be consistent in your communications, don't bombard them with information it's quality over quantity and make sure what you post is consistent with the message, ethos or profile you want to project.
3. Customer Service
Deliver excellent customer service to your community but also to all of your customers and those who make inquiries.
4. Ability to Surprise
A good community has the ability to surprise and delight its members. This community should not be a platform used only for promotional offers. Your objective must be to deliver value to your members and to interact with them.
5. Interaction Engagement
A key feature of any community is the amount of interaction and engagement – not just with the host but also with each other within the community. Build-in flexibility to accommodate user generated features and you will reap the rewards.
6. Above and Beyond
Start with the mindset that you will go above and beyond the norm in an approach that both Napoleon Hill and Zig Ziglar famously referred to as ‘going the extra mile’ and you will give your community every chance of future success.
