The government is trying to give small Irish businesses €2500 in funding for their website and online marketing, but they have a problem: not enough people are applying for the Trading Online Voucher Scheme.
It’s very simple grant: it’s money towards upgrading your website – maybe improving the design, making it more mobile friendly, or adding a shopping cart and ecommerce functionality.
Funds can be used for multiple services
It’s not just limited to your website, you can use it for almost anything related to online marketing, like doing a training course to help you learn about social media or blogging or SEO.
You can even use it to help pay for advertising like Facebook ads and Google AdWords.
They’re really trying to give this funding to businesses – in my area every single business that applied and was eligible was awarded the funding. But not enough are applying.
