Google offers small business marketers a number of online tools to help manage and enhance their online presence.

The workshop will be taught by Kelly Massey, regional director for the Florida SBDC at UWF. He has partnered with Google in the Let’s Put our Cities on the Map project to help customers locate local businesses. “When we put small businesses on the map, we help our community find, share and connect with local business owners they want to support,” Massey said. “This workshop is a proactive approach to assist businesses that want to better market their products and services.”
