Half-Day Workshop for Small Businesses
At SEMpdx, we believe small businesses are the backbone of our economy. In fact, many of our SEMpdx members are small businesses or work at small businesses.
We understand the challenges you face every day. Rarely do you have the time (or energy) to consider how to improve your Internet footprint, including being ready to serve prospective and current customers who are looking you up on their smartphones and tablets.

Studies show consumers are looking for more than just basic information when searching online or on maps, but also expect to easily find other information – such as business hours.
According to research conducted by Google and research company Ipsos MediaCT, consumers are 38% more likely to visit and 29% more likely to consider purchasing from businesses with more complete listings.
