Having a website for your business is one of the most important tools you can have in your toolkit to ensure your business’s success. A website can drive online sales and increase customer awareness of your business, leading to greater foot traffic in your store or online bookings. It’s an essential component to having a thriving business in 2023. That’s why our Chamber team has launched the Get Your Business Online! program. The Chamber’s Program Specialist, Jose Guadarrama, is the point of contact for this effort. The goal is to help 200 small businesses in north county get online with successful websites that help drive sales and increase exposure so they can thrive for years to come!

How does the Get Your Business Online! program work? Our Program Specialist, Jose Gaudarrama, will visit and reach out to local businesses in Atascadero, Paso Robles, and Templeton that don’t have a website. He’ll work closely with these small businesses to learn why they don’t have a website and then help them create one. Each website will have a home section, list of products/services/menu, contain an “about” section, and a way for customers to contact the business.

However, the program doesn’t stop there. Participating businesses will also receive training on how to edit and add more to their website to keep it updated in the future. This gives local small businesses the tools and the information they need for continued online success! The Chamber team is ready to help OUR local businesses succeed online! If you’d like to join the Get Your Business Online Initiative, fill out the sign-up form at forms.gle/EbSFvC8K5HsTWQn79. If you have additional questions about the initiative, please contact Jose Guadarrama at Jose@atascaderochamber.org or call (818) 533-6011.
