Somizi wants to help you grow your small business, and here's how.

The TV personality took to Instagram on Wednesday, explaining that he wants to use his social media platform to promote businesses that don't have funds for advertising. 

"I've got a platform that is, you know, powerful enough and has a huge following, where I could use it as well to support and promote undiscovered, beginners or ideas or businesses that might not necessarily get the opportunity to, or can afford to pay for advertising and stuff like that," he said in a video to his 3.6 million followers.

He explained that he would be using his social media accounts to promote businesses from the end of January 2021 - and in the meantime, encouraged business owners to work on their pitch. 

According to Somizi, your pitch can be in a video or the actual product - and he is looking to assist all businesses from catering to toothpicks! But your pitch has to be on point and blow him away. 

Somizi said that he would be announcing more information about his initiative closer to the time.
