Some studies show that up to 97 percent of customers have gone online to look for local products and services at some point. In addition, three of four smartphone users have contacted a business they found first on their phone.

Yet, according to Google, 64 percent of Missouri small businesses still don’t have a website. To remedy this situation, Google in partnership with KCSourceLink, the Hispanic and Greater Kansas City chambers of commerce, KCnext, Intuit, SCORE and others is offering small business owners free websites for a year.

This offer includes a domain name and hosting for a website on Intuit for one year, three free pages, 25MG of disk space and 5GB of bandwidth. Email and ecommerce features are not included.

What happens after a year is up? The fee is $6.99 per month if you registered a domain with Intuit or $4.99 per month if you did not sign up for a domain.

And, according to Google, you can build a basic, functional website in about an hour. Go to Missouri Get Your Business Online for more information.
