Grow with Google Workshop for Small Businesses
The California Office of the Small Business Advocate (CalOSBA) has rolled out its “Grow with Google” workshop series, designed to help California small businesses grow their digital footprints.

The first component of its new e-commerce initiative, “Get Digital CA,” is meant to promote e-commerce to help small businesses build the skills they need to compete in an online marketplace, increase their revenues and improve resilience in the face of California’s current multi-disaster environment.

Registration is available for the October 7 Grow with Google workshop, "Use YouTube to Grow Your Business," which covers best practices for creating a YouTube Channel and compelling video content that promotes your products and services and drives engagement with your brand.
