Over 100 million Africans are online. And that number is growing every day.

The Internet is fast becoming the first place customers go to find information on products and services they want to buy from businesses like yours.

As the power of the internet grows, so do the opportunities for small businesses. According to global consulting firm McKinsey, the growing use of the internet in Africa could add $300bn a year to the continent’s gross domestic product (GDP) by 2025.

That is why we developed the Africa, Get Your Business Online program. It has been our way of helping small businesses, just like yours, to create a website and get a slice of the action. We are really proud to have helped so many people take that first step.

To continue our commitment to giving you the easiest and most effective means of having an online presence, the most flexible tools, and support whenever you need it, we are evolving our suite of offerings for small business owners with the launch of Google My Business.
