Central Library to Host Google Workshop for Small Business Owners on June 29





Did you know that 97% of consumers look for local goods and services online?

Only 37% of businesses have claimed a local business listing on a search engine.


    The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) and the City of Birmingham’s Office of Economic Development are partnering with Google and Zeekee, a local internet marketing firm, to offer a workshop aimed at helping put every business in Birmingham on the map—including yours—for FREE.

    If you are a current business owner and you want to gain control of the information Google displays about your business in Google Search and Google Maps, then this workshop is for you. A Google Trusted Photographer and Trusted Verifier will be present to help your business get online and allow you to choose what people see when they “google” you.

    Space for the workshop is limited, so please register with Valencia S. Fisher in the City of Birmingham’s Office of Economic Development at valencia.fisher@birminghamal.gov as early as possible to reserve a spot.
