THATCHER - Eastern Arizona College's Small Business Development Center is hosting a seminar entitled, “Google's Get Your Business Online: How to Build a Free Web site,” on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the EAC High Tech Center, Room No. 113.
Google's national program, “Get Your Business Online,” allows small businesses to reserve a domain name and create a Web site, all for free. In addition, through this program, Google provides free domain name and hosting for the first year.
“Many small businesses in Greenlee County would like to have a Web site, but can't afford to pay a professional to build one. This program will allow any business owner to have a nice, user-friendly Web site to help guide potential customers to their storefront. We will have Wi-Fi, and attendees who have a mobile device (laptop, iPad, etc.) will build their Web site that night,” said SBDC director, Kevin Peck.
“Online local information is like the new Yellow Pages,” he continued. “You can't afford not to have an online presence.”
The admission is $20 per person ,and registration is strongly encouraged as seating is limited and attendees need to receive information prior to the seminar to maximize time.
