Google is coming to the Valley Friday to help small businesses establish websites so they have an online presence.
Google’s Arizona Get Your Business Online initiative is targeting the 56 percent of small businesses in the state that don’t have an online presence, because 97 percent of U.S. residents look online for local products and services. Google is traveling around the nation to help those businesses establish websites.
Google is offering free easy-to-build Intuit websites, customized domain name, one year of web hosting and online training. The Google event is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday at monOrchid, 214 E. Roosevelt St. in Phoenix. For more information, visit www.ArizonaGetOnline.com.
