Activate tāmaki makaurau

Activate Tāmaki Makaurau

The Activate Tāmaki Makaurau is a funding programme by the New Zealand government to support small and medium registered Auckland businesses to tide over the pandemic. This includes two free grants - one for business advice, and another for implementation and support - for up to $7000. The best part: you don’t need to pay any of it back! Read more about the programme below and how The Web Guys, as a registered service provider, can help you with both.

Free grants to help Auckland businesses move forward

The funding programme was announced on October 22, 2021 as part of the government’s support package to help businesses affected by the restrictions under the new COVID-19 Protection Framework. While the official Activate Auckland page mentions a few different types of grants, the ones that we as a digital marketing and web design agency can help with are:


Business Advice for $3000 + GST

For advice and planning support, like developing a marketing strategy.


Implementation Grant for $4000 + GST

Offering the support to implement the business advice by building a website or landing page, for instance.

How The Web Guys can help

As a registered service provider on the Activate Auckland platform, The Web Guys can create digital marketing strategies (for web design, SEO and Google Ads) and execute them to ensure your business gets traction online.

You can use this opportunity to revamp your website, create new landing pages, or even get a new one altogether. If you already have a website but aren’t doing any digital marketing, this can help you improve your organic or paid visibility.
