Let’s Put Wayne on the Map workshop on March 24th to help small businesses grow online
February 9, 2015, WAYNE, MI– Wayne Main Street is helping Wayne small businesses build their presence online at a Let’s Put Wayne on the Map workshop. Wayne Main Street is hosting the workshop, which will feature a lesson about Getting Found on Google Search and Maps.
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.
“Wayne Main Street is excited to partner with Google on this initiative,” said Lindsey Wooten, Executive Director of Wayne Main Street. “We view it as a perfect opportunity to provide free assistance to our business community that will be of equal benefit to any type of company operating or servicing the city of Wayne.”
“Businesses that are online are expected to grow 40% faster than those who aren’t,” said Soo Young Kim, Marketing Manager for Google’s Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map Program. “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 every community to support 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 training on March 24, 2015 will take place at the Wayne Fire Station (3300 S. Wayne Rd.) and is a Google lesson hosted by Wayne Main Street. Training begins at 6:00 PM and will be followed by interactive assistance and question and answer session.
