Online giant Google has launched a service to help Arizona businesses get online for free for a year.
Tomorrow, Google will formally roll out Arizona Get Your Business Online (www.ArizonaGetOnline.com), which offers businesses free websites, tools, training and other resources, as part of nationwide rollout in partnership with Intuit.
The free Intuit Websites offerings for include an easy-to-build website, a customized domain name and Web-hosting for one year. After a year, the company charges $2 a year for a domain name and $4.99 per month for Web hosting.
Google is holding a kickoff event for the program Friday in Phoenix.
While 97 percent of Americans look online for local products and services, 56 percent of Arizona small businesses do not have a website or online presence, Google says.
