In addition to the offers on new products, Chase teamed up with Google to provide exclusive additional benefits in one of the fastest growing areas for small businesses: Online marketing.
“Being an industry leader means you can bring people together around – in this case – a virtual table to share best practices,” said Richard Quigley, President of Ink from Chase “Google has been a tremendous partner with Chase, helping our clients get immediate benefit from their advice and experience.”
Business banking customers are invited to an exclusive Google webinar on May 18. This gives Chase clients across the country a front-row seat with the global online leader. This one hour, online seminar will help small business owners get the most from Google tools. As part of the webinar, Chase customers will be offered a $100 credit for Adwords. Chase clients can sign up by invitation from their Chase banker.
Additionally, Chase branches will offer online marketing tool kits with additional offers for new and existing customers coming into the branches.
