Google Offering Free Websites For Business Owners

Google wants to help small businesses setup a website and get online. They are doing this by partnering with Intuit's online website building expertise. They will give you your own web address, help you build a great website, and host it completely free for one year.

Google believes that small business is vital to America's economic future. They see that 27.5 million small businesses create two-thirds of all jobs and contribute half of the total U.S. GDP. Nowadays you are invisible to customers if you do not have a website. Google wants to introduce small business to the benefits of the Internet and are willing to give a website away for one year to prove it.

Their "Get Your Business Online" promotion starts at their website. There is a map, you just click on your state and you will link to your states "GYOB" website. Some states do not have their free website offer ready yet. So leave your email and you will be notified when it is.

What is needed to get started?

To get started you need a Google email account. It's easy to get one if you do not have one. Don't worry, they also need your credit card to only establish your identity. They will not charge you for anything. If you already have a domain name then you can use it on your new website. If you don't, you will need to pick one and it will cost you nothing.

How do I edit and build my new site?

You go over to the Intuit login page with you username and password.
( They take you by the hand and walk you through the entire process.

I don't know a thing about building a website?

No problem. The new website comes with 30 days free email support. Plus the website buiding process is dead simple. If you need help after the 30 days you can upgrade to the Business Lite package ($7.99 a month) to receive individual phone support. Once your first month is complete, you'll still have ongoing access to the Intuit Community and Online Help Center.
