DENISON,TX--- One program is trying to bring more businesses where there customers are by letting them create a free web page. "Get Your Business Online" started about one year ago in Texas. In about a year, the program has expanded to all 50 U.S. states. Google partnered with Intuit, and a few other partners, to create a quick and easy way for small businesses to get online.

"It's aimed at helping small business people get a website up. You can't actually work anymore without a website, especially in commerce. It's a great benefit to small businesses," Denison Development Alliance President Tony Kaai said.

The program provides a free website, domain name and hosting for a year. After that it costs $7.00 a month to maintain the website. There is also an option to cancel the website for those who do not want to pay after the free service expires. It also gives users the free training and tools they need to get started in step-by-step instructions.

For more information on how to get started, and the program's web page, you can go to the following sites depending on which state you live in.
