In a move to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) leverage the power of internet, Google on Tuesday rolled out Website With Google My Business, a new feature aimed at building a mobile-optimised website instantly.
Using Google My Business, businesses can create their first website for free.
“Small business owners tell us that building a website can be complex, expensive and time-consuming. In order to solve these problems for them, we introduced a new simple, free, and fast way to build a mobile-optimised website through Website With Google My Business,” said Shalini Girish, director, marketing solutions, Google, in a statement.
Website with Google My Business is available in 10 languages including English, Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Marathi, Tamil, Urdu, Gujarati, Kannada and Malayalam.
Over 120,000 Indian businesses were part of the pilot roll out programme that has been running for the past five months.
As part of the website builder, businesses can get a free domain from Google or buy their own with Google Domains right from Google My Business.
“Connect with customers by telling them exactly what you want them to do next, like call your business, book an appointment, or sign up for your mailing list,” the company said.
