Google Offers Free Service to Help Small Businesses Expand Online
IOWA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Des Moines, Iowa – State Representative Bob Kressig of Cedar Falls encouraged local small businesses to participate in a new free service launched by Google and the State of Iowa to help small businesses put their business online. Called “Iowa Get Your Business Online,” the program is dedicated to providing local Iowa businesses with tools and resources to get online to expand business.
“This is a great opportunity for small business to increase visibility online and expand,” said Kressig. “I hope those interested will attend the events in their area to receive free services from Google to help expand their business.”
Google will offer free training sessions across the state small businesses and will provide an easy-to-build professional website, a free customized domain name and hosting for one year, a local business listing on Google Places, as well as free tools, resources, and trainings.
Small business owners that are interested in attending a training can go to www.IowaGetOnline.com. The free training sessions will be held in the Des Moines area on September 12th and 13th, in Council Bluffs on September 15th, in Waterloo on September 16th and in Pella on September 30th. Google is also making plans to be in more areas throughout the state in the coming months.
