GEORGIA TO PARTNER WITH GOOGLE TO HELP SMALL BUSINESSES

Written by Matt Davis on February 21, 2012. Posted in News/Weather

Governor Nathan Deal has announced a partnership with Google that will offer free websites to small businesses throughout Georgia.  “Georgia Get Your Business Online” is intended to help drive economic growth by giving businesses statewide the tools and resources to establish a website, find new customers and grow, according to a release from the Governor’s office.

Deal states, “This new initiative will help grow small businesses in Georgia and provide business owners a valuable resource at no cost.  One of the best ways we can help our economy expand is to help Georgia businesses increase their visibility online.”

Over the next year, participating Georgia businesses can go to www.georgiagetonline.com to get a free website in addition to free tools, training and resources to help their business succeed online.  Google is partnering with Intuit to provide its popular Intuit Websites offerings that include an easy-to-build website, a customized domain name and free web hosting for a year.

While some 97 percent of Americans look online for local products or businesses, 54 percent of Georgia’s small businesses do not have a website.

Georgia is the latest state to participate in Google’s Get Your Business Online.  The program is expanding across the US and is also in 23 countries including Great Britain, Canada, Ireland, Australia, Thailand, Brazil, Spain, Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, Hungary and Poland.
