Cape Cod Community College Offering Free ‘Grow Your Business Online’ Program

WEST BARNSTABLE – The Center for Corporate and Professional Education at Cape Cod Community College is working to help small businesses grow their online presence with Google through a series of workshops.

The Center is hosting the program, Grow Your Business Online with Google, which brings together community leaders, business owners, and civic leaders to help small businesses find success online.

“We are partnering with Google again. This is the second time we’ve offered it this year. There’s a Google expert trainer coming to town, Brian Kaplan is his name, to offer two workshops that will be covered on September 27,” said the Center’s Director of Workforce Development Training Tammi Jacobsen.

“Google keeps it very simply and easy to maneuver through their site and to find out information on your site and how it’s working. You don’t have to be totally social media savvy, it’s very helpful and very easy to learn from them.”

The program features two workshops, Succeeding in a Micro-Moments World, Make Your Website Work for You. The workshops are scheduled for Thursday, September 27, at Cape Cod Community College in Hyannis Center from 2:30 p.m. through 4:30 p.m.

Jacobsen says that the first workshop of the program, Succeeding in a Micro-Moments World, is very informative in teaching people how to figure out what their customers are looking for.

“It gives you some insight into what they’re searching for and things they may be looking for online so you can capitalize on some of their behaviors and trends,” Jacobsen explained. “This is really a great workshop and pretty in-depth if people are just launching a new business or if they want to just spruce up an existing site. It’s basically for entrepreneurs and small business owners.”

Grow Your Business Online is a program that helps keep small businesses on the map by empowering communities to support them.

“It’s totally free of charge. Google completely takes care of the cost of the program. They’re just encouraging individuals to learn more about the tools they have to offer and just how to make them a little more visible on the website,” said Jacobsen.
