Free Google Workshop Aims to Help Local Utah Businesses Succeed Online

Local Place View has partnered with Google's GYBO team to offer a free marketing workshop to educated local business owners on the importance of having accurate and complete businesses listings online.


Riverton, Utah- Local Place View is helping small businesses grow their presence online with a “Let’s Put Riverton on the Map” workshop, which will feature a lesson about setting up and managing a free “Google My Business” page and some helpful SEO tips. The workshop will be hosted on Tuesday, August 18th at 2332 W 12600 S Suite F200 Riverton, Utah 84065 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.


Let’s Put Riverton on the Map is part of Google’s “Get Your Business Online” program and aims to bring community members, business owners, and civic leaders together to help small businesses succeed on the web. While the event is hosted in Riverton, all local Utah businesses are invited to attend the event and learn how to effectively market online.


Brian Armstrong, the owner of Local Place View, says “incomplete and/or inaccurate business listings online are costing small businesses billions of dollars in potential sales! It’s very important to have the correct information online so that prospective or existing customers can easily find your business in local searches. This can be the difference between a successful or failing business.”


“4 out of 5 consumers use search engines to find local information nearby, yet only 37% of businesses have claimed the business listing on a search engine,” says Soo Young Kim, Head of Small Business Engagement at Google. “Small businesses are the engine of local economies and when small businesses flourish, the communities do as well.”


“Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map” is a program designed to empower communities to support local businesses and encourage small businesses to get on the map. Local businesses keep the communities strong; when small businesses succeed on the web, it makes the communities even stronger. The Get Found on Google Search and Maps workshop is a Google presentation hosted by Local Place View. Visit www.gybo.com to learn more about the program and get involved.
