LOUISVILLE, KY (May 1, 2018) — Leading up to its Grow with Google’s National Small Business livestream workshop on May 2, Google announced it would be giving free, customized marketing materials to 1,000 local Louisville businesses. The Louisville Free Public Library will also host an event to view the livestream workshop.
The Small Thanks kits help small business owners turn their positive customer reviews into designed materials they can display. The kits include a custom printed poster, sticker, window decal and table sign as well as social media assets featuring excerpts of real customer reviews. Small Thanks is part of the Grow with Google initiative — a new program to help create economic opportunities for Americans through digital skills trainings and workshops.
The Grow with Google National Small Business Week livestream aims to help small businesses use digital tools to grow their business. Tools for small businesses include Google My Business, to help small business owners build a website in minutes and claim a free Google listing so customers can find them on Search and Maps; Primer, a mobile app with quick, interactive lessons on writing a business plan, making a great website, and marketing a business online; and Startup with Google, a collection of online tools and best practices for getting businesses up and running, from raising funds and hiring the right team to developing new products.
