LSBDC at BPCC to host online small business success workshop in March

The Louisiana Small Business Development Center is helping small businesses grow their presence online with a Get Your Business Online workshop, which will feature a lesson about reaching customers online with SEO and online advertising. The workshop will be hosted on March 14th, 2019 at Bossier Parish Community College from 9-11 a.m.

Get Your Business Online with Google brings community members, business owners, and civic leaders together to help small businesses succeed on the web.  

Dr. Gayle Flowers, BPCC’s Vice Chancellor for Economic & Workforce Development, said, “Small businesses, start-ups, and entrepreneurs create local employment and economic growth opportunities in our community, so we are excited to host this workshop giving them additional tools to engage and attract customers.  By building their capacity to reach customers online, we are helping them survive and thrive in the new economy. The mission of our Division is to transform businesses through economic and workforce development solutions, which includes opportunities like this workshop.”

“4 out of 5 consumers use search engines to find local information nearby, yet only 37% of businesses have claimed their listing on a search engine,” said Emily Harris, manager of Google’s Get Your Business Online program. “Small businesses are the engine of local economies and when they flourish, their communities do as well.”

Get Your Business Online is a program that empowers communities to support their local businesses and encourage them to get on the map. Local businesses keep our communities strong; when we help them succeed on the web, they make our communities even stronger. The Get Your Business Online workshop is a Google presentation hosted by the LSBDC. Visit www.gybo.com to learn more about the program and get involved.
