All businesses located in central shopping area eligible to participate
The Downtown Huntsville BIA, Town of Huntsville and Huntsville Lake of Bays Chamber of Commerce are pleased to announce that the Digital Main Street program relaunched in Huntsville on October 27.
Every business located within the central shopping area (see map below) is eligible to participate in the program. This phase of the program, which is designed to assist small businesses in strengthening their digital capabilities, includes a $2,500 Digital Transformation Grant.
“We’re thrilled to announce that this program is returning to Huntsville,” said Morgan Richter, manager of the Downtown Huntsville BIA. “We received great feedback about the initial phase and are excited to play a role in helping even a greater number of local businesses transition to the digital world.”
The Ontario Digital Main Street program has reached over 15,000 main street small businesses across Ontario, many of which have been better able to cope during the COVID-19 crisis because of their digital preparedness.
“We strongly encourage every eligible business to participate in the program and apply for the grant,” said Richter. “The workshops, consultations and resources offered through the DMS program can be invaluable for local businesses as they endeavor to use digital tools to increase revenue and grow.”
Local digital marketing firm Top Water Communications has been selected as the DMS provider for the duration of the project. Top Water’s founder, Dan Powers, will be meeting personally with every participating business and offering a series of workshops on a variety of digital topics.
The deadline to apply for the Digital Transformation Grant is November 30, 2020. Applications must be submitted via https://digitalmainstreet.ca/marketing-new-economy/.
Business owners wishing to participate in the program should email Dan Powers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
