      Act quickly and you could get full funding for marketing, sales and automation services.

      The government recently released details of a new COVID-19 business support grant. There is £300,000 of European Regional Development Funding available, being administered by Local Economic Partnerships (LEPs). More details of the scheme are revealed in this government announcement.

      Grants between £1,000 - £3,000

      In the Bristol West area, businesses can apply for fully funded grants of between £1,000 and £3,000 to help mitigate some of the impact of COVID-19 on their business.  

      The guidance says that uses of the funding could include

        • Business coaching for strategy development 
        • Business development support 
        • Website development consultancy 
        • Purchase and implementation of a new CRM system

      It says that you can’t have started the work already, or part fund something that’s more expensive. HOWEVER, if you think that building your online community might help you weather future local lockdowns then there are some interesting opportunities where we could help,

      Implement your new CRM with Noisy Little Monkey

      For example, the team could support you to implement a free version of the HubSpot CRM so you can make the most of the email marketing, ad management and landing page tools which come out of the box with HubSpot.  

      Or we can audit your website and give you advice on how to improve your digital marketing strategy so that your online activity begins to really make a difference to your bottom line. We’ve also got a team of experts who can provide consultancy on things like how to move your in-person sales online or how to become more visible in search.  

      £3,000 isn’t much money in the world of consultancy and support, but it’s the equivalent to three  days of in-depth training and analysis from our experienced team that might make a huge difference to your business in the longer term.

      Feeling inspired?

      Great! Book a call with Katie today. But don’t leave it too late, the deadline for applications - in Bristol at least - is Monday 21st September 2o20.
