Businesses in Lewis County were learning more about how to market themselves online Wednesday afternoon.
The Lewis County Chamber of Commerce hosted representatives from Nexstar Digital to learn more about online opportunities through Google.
Presenters said there are many services provided by Google designed to help small business, and they can do a lot for entrepreneurs.
“So what consumers in this marketplace are finding is the larger businesses, your major companies like Amazon or things like that, they’re the ones that are actually filling those listings, and those local businesses are losing out,” said Chad Cooper, who presented on behalf of Nexstar Digital.
“If we can raise our awareness on Google by Google apps and Google Maps, then we are going to be more successful. It’s just an additional tool in our toolbox to find success in our businesses,” said Chamber Director Sherry Rogers
The chamber hosts luncheons each month to offer the latest information to member businesses around the county.
