Google Helps Businesses Get Online

Published Thursday, March 28, 2013

U.S. small businesses account for half of our gross domestic product, and they create two-thirds of all new jobs. But only about half of them have websites.

Google, an official corporate sponsor of ACCE, is trying to change that.

The company has rolled out a new program, “Get Your Business Online,” that offers a free domain name and website hosting for one year to virtually any small business. After the free year of service, monthly charges begin at about $5. The program includes online education to help small businesses grow through marketing themselves online, connecting with customers and prospects, and measuring progress with Google’s online tools.

Google recently held a “small business boot camp” in Washington, D.C., for selected entrepreneurs from each of the 50 states. Google paid the tab for travel, room and board, and offered free workshops in web design, search engine optimization, and connecting with smart phone users.

Here are videos of some of the events, including a reception with officials from the Small Business Administration officials and other D.C. area organizations focused on small business issues.
