£500k* in website grants available for businesses to sell online

UK online sales reached £133bn last year according to latest figures. This huge total is up £18bn on the previous year, with mobile sales accounting for much of this growth. A staggering £25bn was spent online in the run-up to Christmas alone, between 14th November and Christmas Eve.

Many of the UK’s small and medium-sized companies have so far missed out on online spending previous years due to their lack of web presence. According to the Department of Business, Innovation & Skills, more than half of customers (55%) say they find it hard to support local businesses when they simply can’t find them online.

As a result, Nettl is offering web development grants to 100 SMEs to help them get online. Nettl of Weymouth is supporting small businesses by offering a free one-hour consultation and a £500* grant towards a Nettl: commerce webshop.

“Our clients tell us they know they need to sell online, but find it difficult knowing where to start. They hear about how expensive web development is and worry that they are going to get ripped off. It’s our mission to remove the black magic and mystery of ecommerce and help small businesses to just start selling online,” said Peter Gunning, CTO of Nettl.

“To show our support for SMEs, we’re offering any local business who signs up for a no-obligation consultation a £500* website grant towards the cost of their web shop.”

“We’re so confident that our web shops will make a difference that we’ll even offer clients the option to pay their website over 12 months, so that with just a few orders, they can cover their costs.

“Championing small businesses is at the heart of Nettl’s ethos.”
