161 Trading Online Vouchers were awarded to businesses across Mayo in 2021 to the value of €336,318 to assist them in developing their online presence, according to Fine Gael TD for Mayo, Alan Dillon.
The vouchers were awarded by the Mayo Local Enterprise Office as the digital transformation journey continues for firms looking to increase sales, reach new markets, and help create more employment opportunities.
Deputy Dillon said: "I am very grateful of the work carried out by the entire Mayo LEO team in 2021 and for helping maintain momentum for many small businesses looking to trade their goods and services online. The Trading Online Voucher Scheme, funded by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment, offers a 50% co-funded voucher of up to €2,500 to help businesses, which have been trading for at least six months. This assists them in developing their online trading capability and includes training sessions that cover various topics, including developing a website, digital marketing, social media for business and search engine optimisation."
