Web.com Hosts Forum to Help North Carolina Small Businesses Succeed In Marketing Online

RALEIGH, N.C. - June 13, 2013 - Web.com, a leading provider of Internet services and online marketing solutions for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), will host a free, interactive Small Business Forum designed to help North Carolina small businesses learn how to successfully increase visibility and market themselves online. The Small Business Forum will take place on Friday, June 21, 2013, from 8:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. EDT at the Raleigh Marriott City Center.

PGA Hall of Fame golfer Billy Casper will open the educational session by sharing details of his career and growing his golf course management company. Casper has been known as one of the most accomplished golfers to ever play the game with over 51 PGA Tour wins in his career. Web.com senior vice president Andrew Gorrin will then 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 with marketing online so that small businesses throughout North Carolina can harness the power of Internet to succeed," said Gorrin. "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. As with other forums we've hosted recently across the U.S., there will be a dynamic dialogue surrounding a range of key, timely topics that small businesses face with 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 Web.com Small Business Forum takes place in conjunction with the Rex Hospital Open, which will be played June 20, 2013 - June 23, 2013, at TPC Wakefield Plantation. As part of its recently announced agreement with the PGA TOUR, Web.com developed the Web.com Small Business Forum as a way to bring additional benefit to communities where events are held.
