These days, almost everyone uses Google to find information and answers.
That's why the company hosted a free workshop on Monday at Hotel Henry in Buffalo.
Organizers helped local small business owners strengthen their online presence, by making sure people can find them when doing a Google search.
"A lot of businesses don't know they can control the information that is presented to people when people are searching for them on Google Maps, said Justine Benisch Product Marketing Manager for Google. "So today we're having them claim their business listing and get hands on help from people from Google to answer any questions."
Organizers say Google actually offers several free tools that can help bring customers to your business.
Don't worry if you missed Monday's workshop, we have some of those tools listed here.
