Not on Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s public schedule…and should have been….

CHICAGO – This morning, Mayor Emanuel visited Illinois Get Your Business Online, a Google-led program that is aimed to equip Illinois businesses with the tools they need to grow.

…One of the tools provided by Google is a free website and customized domain name, and web hosting for one year. Google reports that more than half of all Illinois small businesses have no website, even though 97 percent of the population uses the Internet to search for local products. The goal of the program is to demonstrate that building a website is easy, affordable, and a good business decision.

The Mayor toured the event, spoke with business owners, stopped in on classes, and learned about the resources being made available. Google is hosting the two-day event at the Chicago Illuminating Company, 19 E. 21st Street, on Thursday and Friday.
