Feedback from our business owners indicates that many have understandably not been prepared for people being prevented from walking into their store.  

Although several businesses have transitioned to delivering services, selling products and promoting their offerings online, others are still considering their options.  

To address this immediate need, Southern Grampians Shire Council is collaborating with experienced web developers to enable a swift transition from bricks and mortar to the digital environment. We have had an offer from an experienced agency to build a simple eCommerce website package at cost price ($650 ex. GST). To support businesses in the uptake of this initiative, Council is providing a substantial subsidy to enable industry to get online quickly for only $250 + GST, plus nominal additional fees for domain registration and hosting.

For those who don’t require a website, but still need a professionally designed business email, Electronic Direct Mail templates are also available. 

To discuss this offer please contact our Economic Development & Tourism Team by emailing ecodev@sthgrampians.vic.gov.au

We are also interested to hear from local businesses who may have the capacity to create similar digital solutions, including websites and ecommerce platforms. 

These are strange and uncertain times, we want to support businesses to stay viable, keep themselves and their customers safe, and to protect livelihoods.  

Remember, we are all in this together, and make sure you look after yourselves and your family during this challenging time.
