Google’s Free Websites Program
Google is giving away free websites and has created this landing page for Iowa Businesses to get a free website. It looks like they are partnered with Intuit and for the first year everything is free. They are also having an event to help businesses with this free website offer. The Gov. Terry Brandstad pointed out 59 percent of the state’s businesses don’t have websites. We have also read about 42% of small businesses do not have a website so Iowa isn’t too far off from the national average.
The stats are alarming for a few reasons. While internet marketing consultants or agencies are pitching “social media” to small businesses. There is way too many businesses that don’t even have their own website as the governor points out. Before you jump into Social you need a website and a home base that you can control and funnel new customers there. Also, once you have a website SEO and Paid Search are important elements to make your website get more targeted traffic.
If you aren’t in Iowa and need a website that is what we are all about. If you are in Iowa and don’t care about “Free” but rather save time and have a person on your team manage all of this for you we can also help. And unlike this offer we don’t just give you a toolbox and leave we become your webmaster and manage your website or websites we build, add content every month, and even manage Google Ads for you on the WordPress websites we build you to track results.
