Thatcher, AZ—The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is hosting a seminar entitled, “Google’s Get Your Business Online: How to Build a Free Website,” on Saturday, February 23, 2013, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the EAC High Tech Center, Room #113.

Google’s national program, “Get Your Business On-line,” allows small businesses to reserve a domain name and create a website, 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 website, but can’t afford to pay a professional to build one. This program will allow any business owner to have a nice, user-friendly website 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 website that night,” says SBDC director, Kevin Peck.

“Online local information is like the new Yellow Pages,” added Peck. “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. For more information or to register for “Google’s Get Your Business Online: How to Build a Free Website,” contact the Julie Davis, EAC SBDC Administrative Assistant at (928) 428-8590 or by email at julie.davis@eac.edu.
