Serving Monterey and San Benito Counties

The Get Virtual project helps businesses caught in the COVID-19 emergency to build their online presence and capabilities. Students working with the project assess the needs of applying businesses and create websites, social media, and other tools for the businesses to build their businesses in the virtual world. The service is free to client businesses and is aimed at businesses that lack the knowledge and resources to do the work themselves or hire an agency to do the work.

What We Do:

We partner with local/community businesses to provide basic off-the-shelf software implementation. We don’t provide custom development or programming, but we do provide:

  • Website development or redesign with Wix or Squarespace, combined with research and “web plug-in” deployment to extend site capabilities
  • E-Commerce with Shopify, Stripe, Square combined with delivery services
  • Online marketing: SEO, SEM, email and social media campaigns
  • We train the business to maintain and nurture their new online platform
  • Our services are free, but clients pick up software and other hard costs
