Google and MYOB giving Australian businesses free websites

By on

Google Australia and MYOB today announced a nationwide initiative to bring Aussie businesses online.

Every day 12,000 searches for “builders” are made in Australia, yet only 1 in 4 Aussie construction businesses have an online presence.

Here’s where Google and MYOB come in. “Getting Aussie Business Online” gives small businesses a free .com.au domain name (for two years, $30 for the next two years afterwards) and space to make a free website with the MYOB Atlas website creation tool (for one year). You’ll also get a free $75 Adwords trial. The companies are expecting to bring 50,000 businesses online by the end of 2011

Businesses can sign up today at www.gettingbusinessonline.com.au.
