Google India has launched a nationwide “Make Small Strong” campaign to support small businesses and drive demand through customer support. The new initiative of Google and FICCI, the “Make Small Strong” campaign, is meant to rally support from the citizens.
Citizens can help small businesses by buying locally, leaving reviews and ratings and promoting their favourite retailers on social media. This would help to generate demand for these businesses.
Google India will assist small business owners to build their digital presence. And make sure their business profile is up to date with all business info and photos.

Launched on September 30, this initiative will enable small businesses to go digital and strengthen their presence online. So that it may reach out to more people.
