We would like to invite you to participate in “Google-ize Johnson City" during the week of April 7th - 14th!

Our team is traveling the country getting as many small businesses Google-ized as we can. We spend a week in your town with the goal of getting 50 businesses optimized and verified on Google.

Here is a quick description of the events:

  1. Get businesses optimized and verified on Google

    1. Meet one on one with local businesses to optimize their listings, at not cost to them. We do this by walking the streets and shaking hands.

    2. Set a place and time for an Open House to do the same.[ on is scheduled at the SBDC offices after the workshop on Feb. 13th - we can have one at your offices on the 10th if you wish.]

    3. Your organization can also offer a free online tutorial we have created so you can continue the process after we leave.

  2. Offer a 3-hour “Is Your Business Google-ized” workshop that gives the small business owner an overview of what works and needs to happen online. We want to make sure they know what to expect from marketing companies and employees so they do not lose money. This is a very popular workshop and includes a workbook. Cost is $49 - or can be sponsored. Schedule for April 13th at the SBDC classrooms.

  1. We have a Certified Google Photographer in our team who offers Google 360 virtual tours to local businesses.

We have also created website pages, social media posts, banners, and more for you to use. All we would need from the community is the following:

  1. Location to hold workshop- already scheduled.

  2. One or Two locations for Open House (visitor centers, chambers, public place).- one scheduled at SBDC classroom after workshop.

  3. Announcements out to your list
