To celebrate National Small Business Week, April 29-May 5, the Small Business and Technology Development Center (SBTDC) at Missouri S&T is teaming up with Google to help small businesses get online and in front of customers.
“Business owners in our area told us they want to grow their business, and businesses that are online grow 40 percent faster than those that aren’t,” says Karen Leatherman, business development specialist with the SBTDC. “Our free workshop with Google will help them connect with more customers and be more effective online.”
This livestream workshop will show business owners how to get in front of customers, build a local search presence and network with other community businesses. Presenters will cover consumer trends related to local searches and share best practices for using Google My Business features.
The Build a Local Search Presence workshop will be held 11 a.m.-noon Wednesday, May 2, at 900 Innovation Drive in Rolla, Missouri. Registration is required (workshop is free). Register online at rolla-small-biz.eventbrite.com.
