Kansas City, Get Your Business Online

97% of Internet users look for local products and services online. This is a huge potential market for small businesses. Unfortunately, 44% of Kansas City small businesses don’t have a website or online presence. Google wants to help change that.

This Thursday morning, please join us at Google’s “Get Your Business Online” event, where you’ll be able to set up a free website and a personalized domain name for your small businesses in under an hour. Register on the GYBO website now.

At the event, Intuit will provide local businesses with a free website, and a team of Google experts will help participants build and design their sites. Businesses will also receive a customized domain name, free web hosting for one year, a local business listing on Google Maps and free tools, training and resources. Google experts will be on hand to train the business owners on how to reach more customers online in both English and Spanish.

Go to www.KansasGetOnline.com for details on the event and the program and to register (Missouri businesses welcome, too!). And if you're unable to attend, you can still get a free website. Whether you’re a mechanic, own a mail and copy shop, or have a hair salon, we hope you can attend!
