£500k* in website grants available for businesses to sell online
As many as two million sole traders and small companies missed out on £1.5bn of Cyber Weekend online sales* according to the Department of Business, Innovation & Skills. With a greater number missing out on the last minute rush for Christmas and the January sales. As a result, www.nettl.com are offering £50,000 of web development grants to 100 SMEs to help them get online. The £500* grant on offer are designed to give smaller businesses the leg up they might need to start selling online.
www.nettl.com are supporting small businesses with a free one-hour consultation for up to 500 local small businesses in Birmingham, Manchester, Dublin, London and our soon to open Reading studio with a £500* grant off a Nettl:Commerce online web shop.
Many of the UK’s small and medium sized companies have so far missed out on the cyber spending in December due to their lack of online presence, and according to the Department of Business, Innovation & Skills more than half of customers (55%) say they find it hard to support local businesses when they simply can’t find them online.
“Our clients tell us they know they need to sell online, but find it difficult knowing where to start. They hear about how expensive web development is and worry that they are going to get ripped off. It’s our mission to remove the black magic and mystery of ecommerce and help small businesses to just start selling online,” said Peter Gunning, CTO of Nettl.
“To show our support for SMEs, we’re offering any local business who signs up for a no-obligation consultation a £500* website grant towards the cost of their web shop.”
“We’re so confident that our web shops will make a difference that we’ll even offer clients the option to pay their website over 12 months, so that with just a few orders, they can cover their costs.
“Championing small businesses is at the heart of Nettl’s ethos.”

Navigating ecommerce can be tricky and expensive. Get it right and the rewards can be enormous. Get it wrong and you can blow a fortune.
For maximum flexibility, we could build a totally custom ecommerce site for you. Some of our sister brands run multi-million pound online businesses with sites we’ve built from scratch. However, this is the most expensive route.
The alternative – chosen by lots of businesses – is to start from an existing ecommerce platform, customise it and extend it. That’s a proven path and will get you trading online in a fraction of the time, for a fraction of the cost.
Choosing the right platform is critical. To help us find the right one for you, we’ll need to understand what else you’re doing. What accounting package do you use? Does your site need to connect with an in-store EPOS system? Which carrier do you ship products with?
Talk to us about your plans and we’ll put together a proposal.
Your Nettl :one responsive website will be deployed into our cloud platform powered by AWS. This uses the same proven infrastructure that runs famous names like Netflix, Pinterest, Expedia and Amazon.
