Your small business may be eligible for a grant of up to €2,500 to help you boost online sales and reach new markets in 2023.
Do you want to trade digitally and grow your business online this year? You don’t need to be a digital expert! The Trading Online Voucher Scheme offers a grant of up to €2,500, with co-funding of 50% from your business, along with training and advice to help your business sell online.
This Local Enterprise office grant will first provide you with valuable training on understanding digital growth and also help you to comprehend the importance of Website Design, Digital Marketing and Search Engine Optimisation for small businesses.
This information will then help you to choose which trading online options are best for your business. For example, you may discover that what you need most is the development of a new functioning e-commerce website to sell your products online.
