"Online Business Profiles Matter: Easy Steps to Claim & Optimize Yours" free Workshop at 8am on Wednesday, October 15 at the Lafayette Library and Learning Center, 3491 Mt. Diablo Blvd. Potential customers are searching online for solutions you offer. How easy are you to find and is that information easy to read on cell phones, iPads & other mobile devices? You can't control everything that's said online about your business or how people are searching, but it's important to manage what you can. That starts with claiming, optimizing & monitoring *free* online profiles like Yelp & Google+ Local. In this popular workshop, we outline easy steps to get started.
