Frequently Asked Questions
What's the Women Entrepreneurs on the Web initiative?
Women Entrepreneurs on the Web is an initiative aimed at helping women-owned businesses grow their online presence. This initiative is currently being piloted in India.
Who's eligible for the program?
Any woman-owned business in India (whether registered or not) is eligible for the program. In other words, the sole proprietor, or one of the partners / promoters / founders of the business, should be a woman for the business to be entitled to participate in this program.
What will I get when I sign up for the program?
As part of the program, you will learn to use various web-based technologies in your day to day business while increasing the outreach to your customer base. Whether you are a newbie or an experienced entrepreneur, we are here to help. We’ll share tips and techniques on building an online presence, collaborating effectively, engaging with your customers, innovative ways of promoting your organization, tracking the right metrics, and optimizing your online presence.
I have no experience of the internet. Am I still eligible to be part of the program?
Yes, you are. If you have never been on the internet, we will help you buy a domain, create a website, and build your online presence and show you how you can use this new medium to expand your business.
I don't have a website. How will this initiative help me?
The first circle of the program is to build your online presence. If you do not have a website, we'll help you create one and then take you through the other circles.
I already have a website. How will this initiative help me?
That's great. Now that you have an online presence, we'll show you how to optimize and make the most of it. Googlers will work with you to identify your goals and train you on collaborating effectively, engaging with your customers, promoting your organization and tracking the results.
Do I need to pay anything to be part of this program?
No, you do not need to pay to be part of the program. The only (optional) investment would be purchasing a domain name and Google will facilitate the process with a domain registrar if you need help with this. If you choose not to buy a domain name, we'll help you connect with your customers on social networks or an online video channel and you can still benefit from the rest of the program.
