South Norfolk Council is investing £100,000 to support local businesses to sell their products and services online.

Up to 25 businesses can benefit from the package of support worth £4,000 each, which will ensure they get the know-how and platform to begin trading online.

South Norfolk Cabinet Member for Stronger Economy, Councillor Lisa Neal, said: “If you want to get your business trading online, but don’t know where to start then this funding is for you.

“Take your business to the next level by showcasing it to a global audience, find out how you can attract new customers, drive sales and grow your business.”

Businesses will be put in touch with Council-appointed Quickfire Digital based in Norwich. The e-commerce specialists will work with successful applicants to provide support in a number of areas including consultancy, training and the build and implementation of an agreed e-commerce website. They will also support businesses throughout the 12-month programme.

To qualify, businesses must have their primary trading base in the South Norfolk district and not already trade online and only one application per person.

The fund was launched on the 9 May and will be open for four weeks.
