Google Get Your Business On the Map: Grow Your Business Online
Let's Put Our Cities on the Map is an initiative to help local businesses increase their presence online. We're working with business owners, city officials, and lovers of all things local to spread the word about the importance of getting local business information on Google Search and Maps. To get started, businesses just need to create an online listing and verify their business for free with Google My Business. Local businesses are vital to America's economic future. In fact, small businesses comprise half of the US GDP and create two thirds of all new jobs. And although nearly all consumers look online for products and services, many small businesses do not have any web presence at all. We believe every small business should be found online and we offer the ability to do this through Google products like Google Maps-for free.
GROW YOUR BUSINESS ONLINE
This Workshop covers three things you can do right now to grow your business online. This workshop will cover how to be found by local customers, how to connect with local searchers using Google My Business, how you can be found everywhere, on all devices and how to be found with online advertising. This workshop will also show you how to promote your products and services on Google and partner websites.
