County Cham­ber of Com­merce to host free Google work­shop

Record Observer - - News -

CH­ESTER — The Queen Anne’s County Cham­ber of Com­merce is help­ing small busi­nesses grow their pres­ence on­line by spon­sor­ing a free Google Lo­cal Mar­ket­ing Power Work­shop, which will fea­ture a les­son about how to op­ti­mize their free google busi­ness list­ing to rise to the top of the search re­sults.

The work­shop will be hosted Wed­nes­day, Aug. 10, at the Hol­i­day Inn Ex­press, 1020 Kent Nar­rows Road, Gra­sonville, from 9 a.m. to noon. There is lim­ited seat­ing avail­able.

“Four out of 5 con­sumers use search en­gines to find lo­cal in­for­ma­tion nearby, yet only 37 per­cent of busi­nesses have claimed their list­ing on a search en­gine,” said Emily Har­ris, man­ager of 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.”

The Google Lo­cal Mar­ket­ing Power Work­shop is a Google pre­sen­ta­tion hosted by Queen Anne’s County Cham­ber of Com­merce in co­op­er­a­tion with 360 Busi­ness Suc­cess, an of­fi­cial Google part­ner.
