Free Commercials Offered to Minority-Owned Businesses
The advertisements will be featured on her 24/7 radio show, FMHipHop.com, the growing destination for hip-hop, trap and R&B news, culture and music. The spots will also be syndicated on the show's other streaming sites, TuneIn and Aha Radio, completely charge-free.
FMHipHop is providing free radio commercials for minority-owned businesses negatively affected by the novel coronavirus. Charge free, chosen ads will run for 90's days, on FM's 24/7 radio show; also syndicated on the show's other streaming sites, TuneIn and Aha Radio.
To enter: Follow us on Instagram @FMHipHop, repost this video to your Instagram page, tag 5 minority business owners, and email us a 30 sec MP3 audio commercial.
This philanthropy initiative comes at a crucial time for minority-owned businesses who, as a result of the virus, have been hit hard: In two recent surveys, only 12% of Black and Hispanic business owners reported that they received funding they had requested and 45% of minority business owners reported that they expect to permanently shut down in the next six months.
"We know that many budding entrepreneurs and small businesses would benefit from any type of promotion during this pandemic-induced economic shutdown," explains Martinez. "This is my community and I want to help as much as I can."
FMHipHop will air up to 50 small business commercials repeatedly on their 24/7 radio show throughout the summer.
