California Initiative to get small business online.
Did you know that 60% of California’s small businesses have no online presence?
If you don’t have a website it’s not too late. Regardless of your business model – bricks and mortar, consumer or professional services – you can benefit from being where smartphone owners and web-savvy clients can find you.
If you are comfortable with computer applications like Microsoft Outlook, you can probably master WordPress. If not, there are paid website design solutions that are very economical like Squarespace or Wix. Do not hire a fancy PR firm that will charge you thousands of dollars when a few hours or few dollars per month will do the job.
Perhaps the most frugal option was just announced by Google. Google has teamed up with the state of California to help small business get online with a low-cost domain name and hosting services. Find out more here.
But a website alone is not an online experience. With proper marketing, content and search engine optimization no one will find your site. Like a yellow page ad in a book that is tossed in the recycle bin, your investment will be wasted.
That’s we do at Uzzicom – help small business not only get online, but utilize the power of the web to increase their sales.
So what are you waiting for? Get your business plugged in today.
