"Small businesses are the backbone of job growth for our nation and they face many of the same challenges as large companies yet have a fraction of the resources," stated David L. Brown, chairman, chief executive officer and president of Web.com. "Our mission at Web.com is simple — to help small businesses succeed online. With the Webwise Workshop, we provide personal consultations to educate small business owners on the essential steps needed to build a strong online presence, generate more customer engagement opportunities, and, ultimately, grow their businesses."
Justin Leedy, director of marketing at Web.com, will lead the discussion at the Webwise Small Business Workshop, and will share knowledge and tools that small businesses can use to strengthen their online presence and find new growth opportunities through search engines, social media and other online marketing programs.
