BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Google is hosting a free seminar in Bismarck Friday to help small companies do business on the Internet.
North Dakota native Craig McFadden is helping to put on the event. He says almost 60% of businesses don't have an Internet presence, when most of their customers look on the Internet for products.
McFadden says it isn't hard or expensive for a business to set up a website, and Google is trying to spread that message.
Materials from the Bismarck seminar will be available on a website, http://www.northdakotagetonline.com .
McFadden is a native of Cavalier and a graduate of Cavalier High School and Stanford University. The 24-year-old McFadden started working for YouTube during the company's beginnings, and stayed on after Google bought the company.
