The State Government has announced some great news! $6 million in grants is soon going to be offered to Queensland small business - all in the naming of helping to increase their digital presence! Can you believe at the moment a huge 55% of Queensland small businesses aren’t yet online and the ones that are, haven’t yet gained or utilised the skills needed to grow their business! We find that crazy!
We all know that the Queensland economy is struggling, so it is GREAT to know the State Government plans to take action. Due to the impending fear of losing The Great Barrier Reef and the extreme decline in mining, they are looking to us as small businesses to accept their payment offer and grow! The new Queensland Office of Small Business aim to create profitable employers out of thriving organisations who are just starting out.
The $6 Million will help provide digital marketing, SEO and social media education for businesses to create their imprint in the digital world. The Office of Small Business and the digital grants program are part of a $22.7 million project aiming to increase digital technologies uptake. The information is still developing but this is what we know so far:
Small business grants of up to $10,000 will be available on a “dollar-for-dollar” matching system,
Grants can be spent on hardware, software, digital services and coaching purchases,
These grants will be provided in addition to the services already available here.
Grants can be used to ‘get online’, ‘get ahead online’ or ‘get online marketing skills’.
