Are you a Queensland based small business owner? We’re very excited to inform you that the Queensland Business Basics grant is about to launch in the next few weeks on Wednesday May 4th.

This grant is worth $5,000 – a pretty decent amount that could make quite the difference to your business!

Here’s the low-down about this grant, how it can be used, who is eligible and why you should consider engaging with the Moolah Digital team as part of this grant.

How can the Queensland Business Basics grant be used?

This grant can be used for a variety of activities including:

  • Training and coaching
  • Website build or upgrades
  • Professional business advice
  • Strategic marketing services

This money can be used towards engaging us to design & build a beautiful new website to life.

In 2021, we worked with a recipient of this grant – Clare James Landscape Design – and were able to bring to life a beautiful new website which better showcases her talent and work. In fact, she’s now booked out for all of 2022 and her new website has been a major contributing factor towards this.

We’ve also built websites for other recipients of similar grants back in 2020, including Toowoomba based businesses McKenzie Music Etcetera and MS Mechanical.

As a result, we have a strong understanding of the grant process, the information required for your application and the requirement to deliver on time, as per grant requirements. This means when we put a quote together for your application, it will be guaranteed to meet the requirements and contain the information needed as part of your application.

This year we are being selective of who we work with. So if you would like us to prepare a quote for you, please get in touch sooner rather than later as we’d like to have a conversation with you to make sure we’re a good fit before providing a quote.

Please also note that from a pricing perspective, our websites start from $8,000, so if you were to receive a grant, you would still need to be able to pay a little bit extra towards your project.
