How Does The Trading Online Voucher Scheme Work?

Read our Quick Guide to the Trading Online Voucher Scheme Below

What is the Trading Online Voucher Scheme?

The Trading Online Voucher Scheme (TOV) is a grant of up to €2,500 towards either a website or digital marketing.

TOV is funded by the Department of Enterprise and administered by the Local Enterprise Office’s (LEO).

You can secure up to €2,500 in matched funding to pay for a web development or digital marketing company to do work for you.

Who is Eligible for TOV?

The scheme is aimed at microbusinesses and sole traders who want to improve their digital standing.

To qualify you must be able to prove you have been trading for at least six months and have less than ten employees and a turnover no larger than €2m.

If you are a start-up and have not yet traded then please call us to discuss other grants that may be available to you.

Two Options: Website or Marketing

There are two options available to you for your grant.

Option One: The first option is either the creation or upgrade/redesign of a website for eCommerce purposes. However, this does not mean you have to be selling products online. It could be, for example, implementing an online booking system for your clients or customers. There is flexibility in terms of what you can get the grant for depending on what business you are in.

Option Two: The second option is to create a digital marketing strategy and/or to implement a digital marketing campaign.

Step One: Attend Free Online Seminar

In order to avail of the Trading Online Voucher Scheme grant you need to first attend a half-day information seminar run by your local LEO office. These have moved to Zoom due to the pandemic.

The seminar covers a range of topics designed to help you decide on what grant option is best for your business. Topics include digital marketing, SEO, paid and organic social media and website development.

Step Two: Apply Online For TOV

After the seminar you will be able to submit an application via LEO’s online portal.  You will need some basic information about your business and why you want to go ahead with your chosen project. You also need to upload three quotes for the work.

How Does Matched Funding Work?

As an illustration of how matched funding works let’s say you want an eCommerce shop and the cost is going to be €4,000. In this cases you will need to have €4,000 to pay for the work upfront and then you will receive 50% back after the project is completed and you have paid for it in full. So in this case you will receive €2,000 as a grant payment.

When Do I Receive My TOV Grant?

Once your TOV grant approval comes through from your local LeO office you can engage your web development or marketing company.

Normally you will have to pay a deposit before they start and then once the project is finished you will pay them in full. Once you have paid you can immediately apply to drawdown the Trading Online Voucher payment. You will have to provide the supplier invoice and proof of payment (usually a bank statement). Depending on the payment cycle of your local LEO office it can take anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks to receive your grant payament.

We Do The Work For You!

We will help you secure your grant. We first advise you on what funding you may be able to receive, and then help you fill out the online application and find the neccessary quotations. Call us now on 01-280 9248 to discuss any aspect of TOV or schedule a call with our online diary.

Our Fit-For-Purpose Website Design & Marketing

Website Design

The front-end design of your website is only one part of what makes it fit for purpose. The back-end technical elements you don’t see can make a big different to the user experience and the overall commercial success of your website. Web developers need to be not only good graphic designers but also understand search engine optimisation and conversion rate optimisation.

Website Design

A good website design is functional, intuitive and easy to use, with no unnecessary baggage. To be fit for purpose a website must visually communicate to your potential new customers the value you offer and include a call to action that is clear and unambiguous.

Conversion Rate Optimisation (CRO)

Conversion rate optimisation is the science of maximising business from your website visitors. It is about tracking the end-to-end data of the conversion funnel to see what is working well, and what needs improvement. The data tells you where to prioritise your design efforts, for example on better content, more focused landing pages, a better shopping basket experience, more effective call to action or your on and off-page SEO. CRO is all about looking at design from a commercial perspective and understanding the commercial impact of design decisions based on the data.

Early Stage eCommerce

What is the best website option for your eCommerce business? Should you use a platform like Shopify to create your eCommerce website? The decisions you make at the design stage can effect your success for years to come. There is no one right answer as it will depend on many factors. What type of products you sell, and how many you have. Do you just sell in Ireland or into multiple countries? Do you need multiple currencies and tax options? What kind of delivery options do you  need?

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Search engine optimisation is a long term investment that can have a big payoff commercially for companies who are willing to be patient and do what is neccessary to build for the future. At the very least your website should be set-up correctly so that on-page SEO is always done, correctly done and easily done. There is no excuse for any website developer to neglect this important aspect of web design.

Logo Design & Branding

If your website is core to your business then your logo should be designed with a “web-first” mindset.

Digital Marketing

Nirvana in digital marketing is when you reach a point in your journey where you can accurately predict the commercial results you will achieve from every euro spent on digitial marketing. For example, a 20:1 return on markeiting investment (ROMI) where every €1,000 you spend brings in €20,000 in revenue. Reaching this point should be the aim of every digital marketing team. It requires a deep understanding of online, end-to-end attention to detail, and effective data gathering.

Digital Marketing Strategy

A digital marketing strategy is an integrated roadmap of the commercial results you want to achieve through your digital marketing efforts. It should include organic and paid for both search and social channels. Unless you have deep experience in digital marketing, creating a strategy can be a daunting task. We can help you understand what is possible for you, what you should expect, what it will cost and how long it will take to work. 

Digital Marketing Mentoring

Do you or your team need help with digital marketing? Many experienced business people and marketers have an excellent track record with traditional marketing but are a bit lost when it comes to digital. Even attending excellent training programmes cannot make up for a lack of hands on experience so it becomes a chicken and egg issue. We can help you by providing mentoring and coaching as support and training. This type of marketing mentoring can be invaluable and save you time and money as an alternative to trying to figure it out through trial and error.

Online Lead Generation

Online lead generation is all about end-to-end attention to detail. We can help you setting up online campaigns to maximise results and ensure no value is lost through lack of understanding.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Search engine optimisation as a marketing strategy is a long term investment that can have a big payoff commercially because SEO reaches potential customers that no other channel can reach. We can help you bring more releveant traffic to your website through off-page, on-page and technical seo.

Paid Campaigns (Search and Social)

Paid search campaigns like Google Ads and paid social campaigns through Facebook or Instagram can bring a high return-on-investment. If you are starting out then budgets can be small while you discover what works and ramp up as you achieve the results you are happy with. We can provide a best practise strategy and set up the implementation of the campaigns.
