There are an abundance of grants available to small businesses looking to pivot their businesses online, but many are finding that the cheapest deal comes with dodgy web developers who are really just doing the numbers. Their sales spiel may be good, but their website development skills don't match. Many are offshoring their web development giving small businesses websites that are merely templates that don't have any of the basic factors taken into account.
Glen Eira City Councils extension of its marketing and website development grants will help catapult small businesses trying to reinvent themselves and survive in the current market. The market has changed forever and how businesses adapt will define their future and marketing is at the core.
It's hard to imagine that this day would ever have happened, but one Government decision, rightly or wrongly, has closed down small businesses in Melbourne for 6 weeks, and most are uncertain as to whether they have a future, let alone whether they should market their businesses or not.

Last week we had to put off one of our remote workers in my technology startup, something that many small business owners have had to do of late.

It is with great sadness that I write this blog. Since March I have been fighting the big fight and trying my best not to let what is going on in the world dampen my spirits.
There is one thing that our clients constantly remind us is important to their business, that is a deal-breaker when engaging with a marketing agency. It isn't as tangible as many areas of marketing, but it does require the marketing agency to be on the same page.
Coming into our Melbourne marketing agency today, I was faced with a huge dilemma - how are we going to adapt to wearing a facemask in the office? This might sound trivial but it is not. We talk all day long, on the phone, in person, during workshops and Zoom calls. How are we going to do this with a facemask on?
With an influx of inbound leads to our marketing agency in Melbourne, we have been inundated with questions related to the best digital marketing strategies that are most relevant to today's environment.
