Google has launched Get Your Business Online con Google, a program targeting Hispanic-owned businesses to get online. Google partnered with local Miami organizations to design the program, which will help drive economic growth by providing businesses the tools and resources to create a website in Spanish. The company also teamed up with Intuit to provide its popular Intuit Website offerings for free, including an easy-to-build website, a customized domain name and web hosting for one year.
The program is part of a statewide initiative aimed at helping the 58 percent of Hispanic-owened Florida small businesses that do not have an online presence.
Google will welcome hundreds of local Florida businesses to participate in a series of free workshops held in Spanish that will focus on educating Hispanic-owned small businesses on how easy and quick it is to get online. Google employees will work hand-in-hand with business owners to instruct them on how to create an easy-to-build, customizable website through Google. Workshops will be held in Spanish, with assistance available in English as needed.
