WHAT WE ARE FACING
With the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the small business world has been turned upside down. Businesses have significantly lost revenue over this time with consistent operating expenses drawing at the funds that companies have in reserve. Business finds themselves in a peculiar position where they can not afford to risk their reserve to fund projects like transferring their brick and mortar stores over to eCommerce websites and investing in marketing services to grow across digital platforms. These businesses are left with the decision of investing in growth and repositioning and keeping their funds for a rainy day. At JD Snapshot we have answered the needs by starting the Flambeaux Black Card™ Project.
MAKING AN IMPACT
Together with your support, we are giving serial entrepreneurs and small business owners the ability to commence their marketing, development, media, and publication projects producing without having to worry about the upfront commitment of leveraging their current budget. This solution takes the limitations of growth potential and funds off the table to allows businesses to grow not only their revenue but their business credit.
Flambeaux (plural for flambeau, or a flaming torch) comes from the French word flambe, meaning “flame.” The New Orleans tradition of using flambeaux carries has become famous for their use in Mardi Gras parades. Before the advent of electric power, Carnival Krewes relied on men to lead the parades at night by carrying gas torches to light the way. The first official Mardi Gras flambeaux debuted with the Mistick Krewe of Comus on Fat Tuesday in 1857.
Flambeaux was a tradition that arose out of necessity but also illustrated elements of emerging American culture and social classes, as the flambeaux were originally carried by slaves and free men of color, namely Creoles. The torches turned into a spectacle as the men waved and twirled the torches while dancing down the street. Parade-watchers would throw tips to the torch carriers, often 25-cent or 50-cent coins, more in response to the elaborate performances than the light itself.
JD Snapshot is a black-owned agency that is lighting the path to a new era of financing business growth with the Flambeaux Black Card™ Project.

HOW WE CAN HELP
Marketing, development, media, and publications are essential to the growth of all businesses. However, businesses find themselves in the position where they need the direction of agencies to bring strategy to what they are doing to elevate their brand. More often now those businesses lack the ability to allocate funding towards the services they need due to the level of risk of using funds to split test ad campaigns, etc. They are apprehensive when it comes to spending the funds required to elevate their business due to the uncertain future, and need to redistribute funds in other directions to continue to pay overhead and operating expenses while running at limited capacity.
What JD Snapshot has done is put an answer to the problem that we have been seeing happening before our eyes every day as we speak to business owners. The Flambeaux Black Card™ Project is that answer. This is a credit solution that is optimized specifically for the marketing, development, media, and publication niche. We are offering an option that takes the pressure off of a business's direct capital. This solution gives businesses time to let the project commence and make them more money, drive them more traffic, drive them more leads, and get them more awareness while removing the upfront cost. This allows businesses to place their dollars where it's most needed at the time it is needed without having to sacrifice their growth.
The Flambeaux Black Card™ Project will be a multi-billion dollar project with age. We are implementing the project in phases with growth at every stage. We are looking to raise the initial capital to start the project and get the first cards to the market by Q2 of 2021. As the project grows we will raise the offering ceiling on the bonds throughout the phases taking on more investors and investors that want a larger return. We looking to offer a diverse solution that is obtainable to our investors to add to their financial portfolio. The Balance explained a bond as so "Bonds are a type of investment that results in an investor lending money to the bond issuer in exchange for interest payments. Bonds are one of the most important investments available for those who follow an income investing philosophy, hoping to live off the money generated by their portfolio."
HOW YOUR FUNDS HELP
Once we move past the initial investment phase we will use those funds as cede funding to use as collateral to secure the corporate bond offering. The funds raised through the bond offering will be used directly for the available credit issued to approved creditworthy cardholders. The success of the bonds will directly relate to the Flambeaux Black Card™. This is why we chose to do a secure investment method that is regulated by the SEC and FINRA that pays investors interest and principal monthly. We are not only thinking about the best interest of businesses and brands that need growth but our investment shareholders as well.
WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE
Once the initial investment process has hit its goal. We will move on to the investment compliance process. We will set up the bond offering, get the investment project SEC-registered, and set up the card offering structure. Lastly, we will launch phase two to open the availability for investors to obtain bonds and invest in The Flambeaux Black Card™ project.
