- The digital hub from LinkedIn and GoDaddy offers retailers an Internet presence - even beyond the Corona times. - Users can create profiles with contact details, opening times and a brief description of their business. - As with a search engine, everyone can find local service providers, stores and offers in their area.

Not every business or restaurateur runs its own online shop. But especially in times of Corona it has been shown that this sales channel has some advantages. Because many people cannot run their stationary business as usual due to the virus-related restrictions, and even after the contact restrictions have been relaxed, many people prefer to shop on the Internet. The result: sales are reduced significantly in some cases or even completely absent. In addition, it will likely be a long time before businesses can build on their earlier successes. Therefore, the digital hub of the world's largest digital network for professional exchange, LinkedIn and the website provider GoDaddy, is starting today. Local dealers and restaurants can register on in order to set up their own website quickly and easily. The cooperation partners want to make it as easy as possible for retailers to be accessible digitally. It only takes a few minutes to register and the transaction is already saved in the database. For consumers, the hub works like a search engine. They enter their desired product request or service and their location in the search field, receive appropriate suggestions in their area, including contact options, and can thus find and support their local businesses. The hub thus helps to create a colorful quarter.
