Google Small Business Website Giveaway

Ninety-seven percent of Americans look online for local products and services, but only 53% of small businesses in New York State have a website or an online presence.

That's why Web titan Google has announced a week-long "New York Get Your Business Online" Program, providing free websites and training to 100 Brooklyn small businesses, as a way of spurring economic growth citywide.

On Monday, Oct. 15 at 1:00 PM, local elected officials will join Google Vice President for Public Policy and Government Relations Susan Molinari at a presser kicking off the program at the Brooklyn Marriott, at 333 Adams Street in Downtown Brooklyn.

Reserved parking is available at the hotel garage on level P1.

At the day-long event, Google will work with small business owners to create their own Intuit websites. Participating businesses will get a customized domain name, free web hosting for one year, a local business listing on Google Maps, and training by Google experts in how to reach more customers online.

Similar events are being held throughout the week in all five boroughs.
