Are you tired of relying on foot traffic and word of mouth to drive sales for your small Irish retail business? It’s time to take things online and tap into the power of eCommerce
With an eCommerce website, you can expand your customer base beyond your local community and reach shoppers from all over Ireland and even the world. Plus, with the Online Retail Scheme from Enterprise Ireland, you can get funding to help make your online dream a reality.
Think about it – with a slick and user-friendly website, customers can browse your products from the comfort of their own homes and make purchases with just a few clicks. No more worrying about limited store hours or staffing constraints. Your business can be open 24/7, and you can even offer delivery or pickup options to make shopping even more convenient for your customers.
But the benefits don’t stop there. An eCommerce website also allows you to gather valuable data on your customers’ shopping habits and preferences, which can help you tailor your offerings and marketing strategies to better meet their needs.
And with the Online Retail Scheme from Enterprise Ireland, you can get up to €25,000 in funding to cover up to 50% of eligible costs for your eCommerce website development. That means you can invest in things like market research, strategy development, implementation, and even in-house training to build your team’s digital skills.
To qualify, you need more than 10 full-time employees, and more than 50% of your business must be B2C.
So why wait? Get started on your eCommerce journey today with the help of BusinessGrants.ie and the Online Retail Scheme from Enterprise Ireland. Your business (and your customers) will thank you!
