The series aims to help small businesses owners like you:
- Get found online: Get your business online and improve your digital presence. Your customers are online, so a strong online presence is mission-critical —even if your business doesn't sell on the web. Learn ways to strengthen your online presence with easy-to-use tools.
- Reach more customers: Connect with more customers in more places. Whether you’re seeking to drive traffic to your website or through your door, discover where your potential customers are with free tools – and reach prospects with digital advertising that fits your business and your budget.
- Sell online: Make it easy for customers to shop with you on your website. Grow your sales by connecting with shoppers online, optimizing your e-commerce setup, and making it faster, easier, and more secure for customers to pay you online.
- Work remotely: Run your business from anywhere. Learn how to transition from working at the office to working from home (or anywhere else you want). Find everything you need to stay connected and productive no matter where you are.
The digital readiness series is a free program made up of four learning modules. Each module includes a Grow with Google Quick Help video, a Google Primer minicourse (the free Primer app is available on the App Store and Google Play), and a virtual Grow with Google workshop. You can watch the videos and take the Primer minicourses anytime, and the Grow with Google workshops will either be live or on-demand and on your own schedule. As mentioned above, you can complete just one module or all four—and you’ll get a digital readiness badge for each module you complete.
