Joe DeMike with Google says workshops like this one will enable small business owners to set up their websites.
"About 97 percent of people who use the internet use the internet to find products and services to purchase online, but 58 percent of small businesses don't have a website," DeMike said.
Google estimates that over the next three years businesses that use the web can expect to grow 40 percent faster than those that don't.

Google is providing the workshops at no charge to small businesses.
