The U.S. Small Business administration wants to help small businesses have a big web presence.

The SBA is partnering with the W20 group, an entrepreneurial ecosystem of digital communications companies, to present a five-part social media webinar series starting May 8.

The lessons will help small business owners create content and connect with their customers to market their products, according to information from the SBA.

The series will focus on blogging, which the SBA has said can be a cost-effective way for small business owners to communicate their expertise and their messages directly to a larger audience.

The webinar will be from 1-2 p.m. May 8, and attendees can register by clicking here.

The blogging lesson will include information such as what businesses should blog about, how to manage time, what blogging tools are available and other best practices.

"Blogging and social media is a great way for small business owners to build their brand and engage with their customers," SBA Mid-Atlantic Regional Administrator Natalia Olson-Urtecho said in a news release. "This webinar will provide an opportunity for participants to learn how to improve customer connections through creating digital content."

Future webinars in the series include lessons about Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and mobile marketing.
