You may be eligible for a single up-front fixed
grant payment of $5,000 (excluding GST).
The Business Basics Grants
This program provides support to businesses to increase core skills and adopt best practice.
Applications open on 8 September 2021. The application form will be available from 9am on the 8 September. Applications will close when we receive sufficient applications for a competitive assessment.
This grant program is competitively assessed. Not all applications will be funded. The first round closed within about 3 hours. Luckily for us and the business owners we assisted - their Applications were submitted in time and they have just received their Funding Approval.
We’re anticipating this round will close sooner due to those who either didn’t get their application submitted in time, or those who submitted their application, but were denied the grant re-applying.
The program is administered by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT).

SEO: Search Engine Optimisation
aka: Get Found on Google!
Make sure your website is optimised to within an inch of it's life, to give you the very best head start at getting found in Google!
We go over your website with a fine-toothed comb to track down any and every area we can improve it... and then we submit your website to Google so they can see how wonderful your website is, and add it to their search results.
This is the fun, nerdy stuff that we thrive on. We assess how well your website is performing in search results, and compare it to your competitors.
Then we create and carry out a plan of attack for World Domination... oh .. ummm... Local Domination to get you found when someone is searching for your services or products.
