Getting Found By
Google with SEO

Make sure your business is being found in Search Engines (Google) ahead of your competition and by those who are in your local area and ready to buy your products or engage your services with our SEO Packages.

Coaching or Training

Take control of your digital marketing with one of our online courses, or a one-on-one coaching program that will give you all the knowledge & confidence you need to use, manage, update & marketing your website, or online store.

We’re here to make this as easy as possible.

The grant round can close at any time, even mid-application.

So you need to ensure you have all documentation correct and ready prior to the grant launch.

This is the 3rd round of this particular funding that we’ve been assisting business owners to apply for.

Our projects from Round 2 are about the wrap up in our schedule so we have space for a limited number of new projects to take on for Round 3.

Applying for government grants is highly competitive and is usually the work of a professional grant writer.

That’s why we’ve put together our Application Guide which provides examples of the information you should be including in your application for the best chance of being approved for this fantastic opportunity.
