Google is offering small businesses in Bristol the chance to create their own website at a breakfast event tomorrow (Friday 19 November).
As many as 1.5 million businesses in the UK do not have a website. Many businesses are not yet online because they see it as too costly, too complicated or not necessary, often all three. However, a recent report by the Boston Consulting Group sponsored by Google showed that SMEs that actively use the Internet reported overall sales growth more than four times greater than that of less active companies.
Google is holding the event between 8.30 a.m. to 11 a.m at the Bristol Temple Quay Regus Centre as part of its Getting British Business Online campaign. If you want to attend you should sign up now to secure your place. You’ll be able to:
- Discover the opportunity that online offers
- Use the Getting British Business Online tools to learn how to set up a free website for your business
- Meet new contacts by taking part in Speednetworking the globe
- Get help and advice on your business or how to progress your business idea

“With the vast majority of the UK population now online, it has never been more important for small businesses to develop an online presence.”
