With 90% of the global market, Google is the most popular search engine available. Mobile devices account for 63 % of all Google searches. There are 5.4 billion Google searches per day and 246 million unique US visitors.
Thanks to the Pine County Broadband Coalition and a grant from the Blandin Foundation, Pine County will embark on a “Going Google” project to help local businesses to compete in a digital economy. The project will include a series of workshops in the coming months, the first of which will teach businesses how to claim their business listing on Google and then populate their page with current information, making them more accessible to residents and visitors.
Future sessions will include use of the Google Workspace platform – docs, spreadsheets, forms & more!
“We are excited to partner with Dihanna Fedder, a local Google Certified Innovator and Trainer, to provide these valuable sessions for our business community,” said Becky Schueller, Executive Director at the Pine City Area Chamber of Commerce. Schueller is serving as the project lead for the Pine County Broadband Coalition to implement the training across all communities in Pine County.
Business Owners are invited to attend a FREE, one-hour training session to “Get Your Business Online” on Google. Each class will be limited to 10 students in order to provide a hands-on experience. Claim your business, add hours, phone numbers, websites and pictures so that your customers/clients are able to easily locate your business.
