SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Google officials are in Santa Fe Friday to help small businesses build an Internet presence.
Congressman Ben Ray Lujan partnered with Google to host the event, where Google experts will help small business owners create their own websites. Businesses will also receive a customized domain name, free web hosting for one year, a local business listing on Google Maps, free tools, training, and resources. Google experts are also on hand to train the business owners on how to reach more customers online.
Last December, Lujan partnered with Facebook for a small business workshop on connecting with customers through social media.
Businesses unable to attend the event can still get a free website and resources by going to www.NewMexicoGetOnline.com.
