Program has already helped hundreds of thousands of American
businesses get online
BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
International Group (NASDAQ:EIGI), a leading cloud-based platform
solutions provider helping small and medium-sized businesses succeed
online, today announced the extension of its partnership with Google
(NASDAQ:GOOG) for the Get
Your Business Online initiative. The partnership will allow more
businesses to benefit from the overall web presence solutions the
program provides. The Get Your Business Online program has
already provided web presence services and support to bring hundreds of
thousands of American businesses online for the first time. Endurance is
the web presence provider for the program and also offers additional
products to help small and medium businesses succeed online.
The program is designed to make it fast, easy and free for businesses to
get online by offering a customized domain name, an easy-to-build
website, and a better presence on Google Search and Maps. "Businesses
that are online are expected to grow 40% faster than those who aren't."
said Soo Young Kim, Marketing Manager for Google's Get Your Business
Online program. "Small businesses are the engine of local economies,
and when they flourish, their communities do as well."
The Get Your Business Online program has helped hundreds of
thousands of small business owners learn to grow their businesses
online. For example, in 2012, Jesse Watson attended a Get Your
Business Online workshop where he learned how to launch his own
website and market his business. He was having difficulty promoting his
custom game boards. After the workshop, Watson built his own fully
functional site - complete with a photo gallery to showcase his products
and a contact form to generate leads. Since his website launched,
Watson's clientele has increased by 50%. Watson commented, "Being online
puts you in front of a limitless audience. Now I can show off my work
without having to run around town - it has opened up a lot of
Watson's problem is not uncommon. 55% of small businesses in the U.S.
still do not have a website or online presence. Endurance CEO Hari
Ravichandran commented, "For Endurance, helping small business owners
succeed in the online world means enabling them from the get-go. First,
getting them online with hosting, then giving them access to website
building tools, and tying it all together with SEO and marketing
solutions, so their site looks good, functions well, and can be found by
the right customers. This partnership with Google demonstrates our
shared passion for getting small businesses online and allowing them to
harness the power and potential of the web."
