Cobb County --  Doing business in Cobb County has just gotten a lot easier, with the introduction of the Black Cobb Pages.com (BCP), an online directory designed to connect consumers with African American professionals and business services in the area.

Boasting a vibrant and attractive African American population, Cobb County, Georgia is a bastion of middle class suburban lifestyles. It is a part of metro-Atlanta area, which is ranked fifth in terms of African Americans’ share of total buying power according to The Selig Center for Economic Growth. One out of every five dollars spent by a Georgia consumer is controlled by African Americans.

“African-Americans are strong believers in Black solidarity, history and traditions, and in “Buying Black,” remarks Black Cobb Pages Founder, Gil Robertson IV. “These positives are reflected in buying preferences that place strong importance on “Buying Black”. For example: 8 in 10 prefer businesses that give back to Black community. In Cobb County, African Americans make up 25% of the population and own slightly over 19% of the business, we started Black Cobb Pages.com as a resource for these two population segment to actively engage.”

Much like the traditional Yellow Pages, the Black Cobb Pages will provide an alphabetical listing of businesses that will be segregated under headings for similar types of businesses (e.g., Plumbers). Additional features will include website links, video and audio integration and electronic couponing. Listing on the Black Cobb Pages can also be updated in real time business, which leads to greater accuracy of listings since contact information may change at any time.

“As an elected official and business owner, I’m excited about what Black Cobb Pages.com can do for this community,” says state representative ALICIA THOMAS MORGAN. “I think that BCP will provide an economic muscle for these businesses to grow so they are able to invest more in Cobb County.”
