Success in Iowa: Google’s Iowa Get Online

Please Share This Post

    


We had a GREAT time in Iowa. Google visited Cedar Falls Iowa on September 27th for their IowaGetOnline program and it was a bit hit.

More than 100 attendees (local business owners and others) gathered to learn about Google Tools and Programs as well as create their Free Website (from Intuit).  We took some pictures during our trip through Iowa as well that we wanted to share with you [below].

What is Iowa Get Your Business Online?

Get Your Business Online is a program from Google that aims to support local businesses in an effort to get them online. 97% of consumers search online before making local purchases so it is extremely important that businesses have websites set up to capture those potential customers.

Free Website… Really?

That’s right. A partnership with Intuit allows attendees to setup a Free website and get 1 year of free hosting as well.

Attendees set up a 3 page website with the ability to customize the:

  • Domain Name
  • Theme/Design of the site
  • Photos
  • Verbiage and content through the pages
  • Set up custom contact forms
  • and More

Some Event Photos & Travel Photos

We got some pictures to show you what the event looks like as well as saw some cool stuff during the trip. We saw a “GO PANTHERS” water tower, the “Welcome to Cedar Falls” sign, the “Quaker Oats” Factory, and more.
