Four out of five consumers use search engines to find local information, such as store addresses, business hours, product availability and directions, but only 37 percent of businesses have claimed a local business listing on a search engine. These workshops help businesses get online and connect to their customers.

May 1-7 is National Small Business Week and Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has proclaimed May 1-7 as Small Business Week in Kentucky.
