Surviving and Thriving as a Small Business in the Internet Era (Presented By Google & SCORE) 

Instructor: Bryan Solar, Google SMB Evangelist

Workshop Fee: $35

Most small business owners know that getting online is important, but don't know where to even start. This workshop is a crash course on what it means to get online and create the digital storefront that allows your business to thrive.

Surviving and Thriving as a Small Business in the Internet Era

This workshop focuses on DOING, not just learning. Attendees of the workshop will come out with a tangible presence on Google, Facebook, and Yelp. Additionally, we will discuss creating a website, Instagram Business Pages, and finish with some open time to discuss any other technologies the attendees would like to explore. 

Attendees are asked to please bring their laptops and/or smart phones to complete exercises and get the most from the experience.

Join us for a unique opportunity ask questions directly to Google and learn how to take your business to the next level.
