Boost your digital marketing efforts with grant funding

Make 2023 the time you take your digital marketing to the next level.

Now is the perfect time, with funding grants available for County Durham-based SMEs looking to invest in their own digital marketing.

If you're a small or medium sized business that pays rates in County Durham, you can apply for a business grant of up to 40% funding for marketing projects costing between £2,500 and £8,000, with a maximum grant of £3,200 from NSBL.

Alternatively you can approach Digital Drive Durham to engage a consultant, attracting up to 40% funding towards your digital marketing project. This could include a new website project or digital marketing.

There are also grant funds available for businesses launching innovative new products or services, or who are exporting. Contact us to explore the options available.

What can the funding grants be used for?

Many of our clients have successfully attracted funding towards a range of project including SEO, website design, copy writing, graphic design, social media, graphic design, videography and photography and digital marketing.

"This is a great opportunity for small ambitious businesses who want to do more with their marketing. Clients can have a limited budget, which is stretched to carry out a lot of good ideas - this funding can boost spending capacity so a bigger more varied project can be undertaken," commented Sarah Greenwell at Stick Marketing.

Imagine what you could do with a £3,200 funding boost to your marketing project budget!

You could put the money towards website design or development, invest in your digital marketing, improve your branding, sharpen up your SEO or develop a killer social media strategy - any number of business improvement projects are possible!

As a registered service provider for NBSL's North East Business Support Fund, Stick Marketing can guide you through the process and help to deliver your business improvement project.

At present, the NBSL funding application is available until 14th Feb for projects carried out by 30th April 2023.
