JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Web.com, a leading provider of Internet services and online marketing solutions for small businesses, will host a free Small Business Forum designed to help Omaha-area small business owners learn how to successfully increase visibility and market themselves online. The Small Business Forum will take place on Monday, August 26, 2013, from 8:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. CDT at Champions Run in Omaha.
The Web.com Small Business Forum takes place in conjunction with the Web.com Tour Cox Classic presented by Lexus of Omaha, which will be played Thursday, August 22, 2013 — Sunday, August 25, 2013, at Champions Run. As part of its recently announced agreement with the PGA TOUR, Web.com developed the Web.com Small Business Forum as a benefit to small business owners in communities where events are held.
David Brown, president and CEO of the Greater Omaha Chamber, will open the educational session with a review of the local economy, and then Web.com Manager of Design Services Josh Carney will share information and tools to help small business owners increase visibility and optimize marketing efforts online.
"We're excited to have an event focused on what really works when marketing online so that small business owners in the Omaha area can harness the power of the Internet to succeed," said Carney. "We have best practices from working with millions of business owners every day who are addressing real-world challenges of marketing online and through social channels. We expect a lively dialogue covering a range of key, timely topics that small business owners face when tackling this increasingly important digital opportunity."
Topics and content at the Small Business Forum focus on ways small business owners can achieve a successful Internet presence, including the elements of a great website, how to determine if their website is working for them, increasing traffic to their website and business, and decoding how to efficiently market on Google, Facebook and Twitter.
"The majority of businesses throughout Greater Omaha are small businesses — and are essential to our economy," said Brown. "When it comes to the Chamber's more than 3,100 members more than 81 percent have 50 or fewer employees. We are happy to support an active Chamber member, the Cox Classic, in providing opportunities such as the Web.com Small Business Forum."
