Small business owners will be featured… from fashion shows to musical entertainment and food.

To further help businesses, this program also provides a free website and a free custom domain for a year. This can save businesses hundreds of dollars as they set up their website and get started online.
The program also offers helpful online marketing tools, such as a step-by-step guide to using Google My Business to optimize Web presence and a diagnostics tool so business owners can see exactly how customers see them on Google Search and Google Maps. It also ensures that local businesses appear on top of search results (based on location) and that their listings are complete with the latest, most accurate business information, such as the right phone number, hours of operation and business description.
