    • $3,000 funding for advice to build your online strategy
    • $4,000 funding for implementation of that advice.

Sharpen up your business’ web presence with a team who know how to deliver meaningful change. We can work with you to create a business marketing plan and execute that in the form of a new website, SEO or complete digital marketing.

How does the Activate Auckland fund work?

Auckland businesses can apply for up to $7,000 + G.S.T per business. This is divided into two separate funds.

Marketing and Digital Advice, Strategy and Planning: up to $3,000.00

Business advice support comes in the form of experts who can work with you to look at your overall business management and strategy. Support is available for financial planning, cashflow management, marketing strategy, and a digital media plan. We can create the right strategy to help your business get noticed online.

Online Sales and Digital Implementation: up to $4,000.00

The Implementation Grant is available to help your business implement an existing business plan or one you have recently created through the Activate Tāmaki business advice programme. This grant will pay for an expert team who has the tools and expertise to execute your plan.

The Implementation grant recognises that many businesses already have plans ready to go, but don’t necessarily have the finances or staff to go ahead with them. This fund will allow those Auckland businesses to get cracking.

Geek Free can help you with a digital marketing strategy, including SEO (search-engine-optimisation), e-Commerce and websites. As a registered support supplier, we can help with both business advice and implementation.
