Blue Meta Recognized As Digital Advisor Under Government Funded Grant Program
Businesses Can Receive Up To $15,000 To Develop A Digital Adoption Plan
As a digital marketing agency, we know one of the barriers to pursuing marketing for some companies – particularly SMEs – is often related to cost. Small to medium-sized businesses simply don’t always have the immediate cash flow available to fund their marketing efforts – even though they would benefit the most from doing so.
Good news awaits these companies and we’re excited to be able to help them.
We’re pleased to announce that Blue Meta has been recognized as a digital advisor under the Government of Canada’s “Boost Your Technology” grant program. Officially known as the Canadian Digital Adoption Program (CDAP), it offers support to Canadian-owned SMEs who want to pursue digital marketing efforts that are tailored to their particular business needs.
CDAP grants cover up to 90 percent of the eligible cost of retaining the services of a digital advisor up to a maximum grant value of $15,000 to develop a digital adoption plan. Eligible businesses must meet the following criteria:
- Be incorporated federally or provincially or a be Canadian resident sole proprietor;
- Be a for-profit, privately-owned business;
- Have between 1- 499 full-time equivalent employees;
- Have at least $500K of annual revenues in one of the three previous three tax years.
Part of the application process involves a digital needs assessment which leads to the selection of a digital needs advisor (like Blue Meta) who can do an even deeper evaluation and make recommendations for a digital adoption plan. Once the plan has been completed, the business submits it to the grant program for payment processing.
