21.02.2012 Pleased to support Google in Getting Welsh Business Online campaign

A recent survey found that Welsh businesses are trailing behind the rest of the UK because of a lack of internet presence, with 25% of small and medium-sized firms in Wales without a website and only 58% with a “high web presence”. It’s clear that Welsh businesses need all the support they can to get online and make the most of opportunities to reach new customers via the internet. At Cake Communications we are genuinely excited to announce that we’re teaming up with Google to help business owners in Wales make the most of the internet. Because one thing is for sure: in increasingly challenging times, it’s more important than ever to get your business online. And for those online already then knowing how to make the most of it is vital. Google has launched Getting Welsh Business Online to ensure that being online is as simple, jargon-free and easy to action as possible. Getting Welsh Business Online will provide free consultations and workshops to help businesses in Wales set up a website or improve their online presence. And did we mention that everyone participating can get a free website, free domain name and a £50 voucher for online advertising? Oh, and there’s goody bags for the first 500 people who sign up. So how will Google be helping business owners in Wales make the most of the Internet? Here’s how:
