Small Business Owner celebrates winning a digital grant

Technology is making our lives better than ever before. As well as allowing all of us to better connect with our loved ones and find the information we need, it also provides Australian small businesses with the unique opportunity to reach larger audiences than ever before, thanks to the power of websites. Getting a website, however, can come with a lot of challenges. Creating your own from scratch can be intimidating, and easy website builders often have flaws that make them less viable for small businesses, such as a lack of SEO features and restrictive functionality for growing businesses. On top of that, getting a website built by a professional can be prohibitively expensive, so what’s the solution? The Queensland Government’s Small Business Digital Grant Program.

What is the Queensland Government’s Small Business Digital Grant Program?

The Queensland Government’s Small Business Digital Grant Program provides matched funding between $1,000 and $10,000 for businesses to use to pay for things such as social media training, new digital equipment or the creation of a new website. The grant officially opens on the 11th of November and closes on the 10th of December.

The way the grant works is that the successful applicant can make a purchase for an applicable product or service, and the government will use the grant money to reimburse half the funds. As the minimum reimbursement is $1,000, this means that the minimum project value is $2,000. You can learn more about the grant and the things you can use the money for on the Business Queensland website.
