Get Your Business Online with TEDD Workshops

Tri County Economic Development District is helping small businesses grow their presence online with Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map workshops, which will feature a lesson about making sure your business is found online. The workshops will be hosted in multiple towns on different dates and at various locations in the Tri County area. A schedule of the upcoming workshops and workshop registration can be found online at www.putnewaonthemap.com.
Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map is part of Google’s Get Your Business Online program and aims to bring community members, business owners, and civic leaders together to help small businesses succeed on the web.
“We are excited to partner with Google to bring this workshop to the Tri County area, we know how vital it is for all businesses to have current information available to customers through a web search,” says Shelly Stevens, Regional Marketing Manager for TEDD.
“4 out of 5 consumers use search engines to find local information nearby, yet only 37% of businesses have claimed their listing on a search engine,” says Soo Young Kim, Head of Small Business Engagement at Google. “Small businesses are the engine of local economies and when they flourish, their communities do as well.”
Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map is a program designed to empower communities to support their local businesses and encourage them to get on the map. Local businesses keep our communities strong; when we help them succeed on the web, they make our communities even stronger. The Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map workshop is a Google presentation hosted by Tri County Economic Development District.
