Over the past decade consumer habits have changed rapidly as customers seek greater levels of control and freedom in how and when they purchase goods or services over the internet. As a result, total website sales in the UK are currently worth £164 billion per year.
To help businesses make the most of the changing market, Buckinghamshire Business First, in partnership with Oxfordshire Business Support, Buckinghamshire Thames Valley and Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership’s, has launched its ‘Get Online, Trade Online’ (GO-TO) initiative to help micro’s, SMEs and sole traders based in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire to establish or enhance their online presence and encourage them to trade online.
Businesses can register their interest to receive vouchers worth £150, which will be available in early 2015, to help towards the cost of a website development project worth at least £350 (excluding VAT). Providers of digital based web solutions can also express their interest by registering their details to help small businesses find them, and encouraging customers to use the vouchers.
The vouchers, which are available until 20th March 2015, can contribute towards the cost of:
• Building a website
• Taking payment online
• Engaging with customers through social media
• Becoming efficient with online finance
• Marketing to customers online
• Staying safe online
If you are a small business who needs an online presence, or you know you can do more to promote your business and trade online, the GO-TO voucher scheme could be ideal for you.
