More than 4100 Aussie businesses get online with Google, MYOB website tool

Wednesday, 23 March, 2011

More than 4100 Australian businesses set up websites using the Google and MYOB initiative Getting Aussie Business Online in the three weeks since the program’s launch.

The initiative allows small businesses to set up a basic website, with information like opening hours, contact details and a map to their physical location, in about 15 minutes.

Users can enhance their website with an image gallery, news section, links and a ‘subscribe for news’ function.

A website made using the service is free for the first year, and $5 per month thereafter if customers wish to keep it. The domain registered during the website’s construction is free for the first two years, and should be about $30 per year thereafter.

According to Tim Reed, MYOB CEO, the success of the program indicates that small businesses are aware of the importance of having a web presence, but do not have to money, knowledge or time to construct a website.

“It’s a clear sign that once you remove the barriers of cost, lack of knowledge and time for Aussie business owners, they are keen to get online and be part of the digital economy,” Reed said.
