Are you a small business owner in Alberta or anywhere in Canada looking to expand your online presence? The new Grow Your Business Online program, also known as the CDAP grant, could be your golden ticket. At BP MediaWorks, we’re here to help you navigate this opportunity and make the most of it.
What is the CDAP Grant?
The CDAP grant is a micro-grant program administered by Business Link, aimed at helping small businesses across Alberta take advantage of e-commerce opportunities. Eligible businesses can receive up to $2,400 to help with costs related to adopting digital technologies. The grant also provides access to a network of e-commerce advisors to guide and support small businesses in their e-commerce adoption journey.
How Can BP MediaWorks Help?
At BP MediaWorks, we offer a comprehensive suite of services to help you apply for and maximize the benefits of the CDAP grant. Here’s how we can assist:
- Creating a Spending Plan: The CDAP grant requires a proposed spending plan that directly ties to implementing a new e-commerce store. Our team will work with you to create a comprehensive plan that aligns with the grant’s guidelines and your business goals.
- Setting Up Marketing Campaigns: We can help you design and implement effective marketing campaigns that are tied to your overall e-commerce implementation plan. This includes social media advertising, which is a cost covered by the grant.
- Website Analysis and Design: Whether you’re developing a new e-commerce website or upgrading an existing one for added functionality, our web design experts can provide the support you need. Please note that redesign of an existing site is not eligible under the grant.
