There are no excuses for Queensland tourism businesses not to get digital ready and improve their online presence since the second round of the Small Business Digital Grants Program was released on 8th March 2017.

Matching funding of up to $10,000 is available to successful applicants for the purchase of hardware, software and services (such as digital coaching).

The digital technology or service must fall under one of four identified priority areas: 

  •  content development (web pages, mobile apps, visual and audio media etc.)
  •  receiving payments or selling online
  •  specialised digital technology or software (business specific)
  •  digital planning, marketing strategy development, and training.

If you are about to invest in technology in your business now is the time to do it, as you’d pretty much be able to get double what you pay for! 

This would cover things such as setting up a blog, creating content for it, resizing images for your website, developing a digital strategy, setting up your email marketing and email database and creating email templates, configuring your online booking system or shopping cart etc. 

Queensland Tourism Innovation Award recipients, Tourism Tribe, have set up a hotline to assist you with your application.

If you’d like to take advantage of this opportunity book a 10 min chat with Fabienne Wintle, Tourism Tribe’s lead coach, by finding a suitable time in her calendar here.  If they can’t help you with your project they’ll be able to get one of the Tourism Tribe experts on board!
