eBusiness UK extends lockdown support into New Year

eBusiness UK has extended its ‘build now, pay later’ web development deal into 2021 to support businesses struggling with the stresses of the coronavirus pandemic.

Under the terms of the offer new projects can be commissioned right away and the cost will be spread over the next 12 months. This covers the design and build of new websites, including ecommerce operations, and has been made available to help businesses maximise their presence and visibility online.

The Blackburn-based digital agency originally launched the offer as a lifeline to Lancashire businesses when the coronavirus pandemic first resulted in a government-mandated social distancing lockdown.

With the country now under additional lockdown measures, and with the UK government warning that many businesses may struggle into 2021 and beyond, eBusiness UK has extended the offer in order to help more organisations.

eBusiness UK’s expert team can take a project from initial design to trading online within four weeks, giving customers a quick, reliable and affordable way to upgrade their web presence.

The offer is open to all types of businesses affected by the current pandemic, including private, public and third sector organisations including charities and not-for-profit companies.

Latif Kothia, director at eBusiness UK, said: “The coronavirus pandemic is putting businesses under an intense amount of financial pressure, and one of the key ways in which they can overcome the challenges is by embracing digital marketing and ecommerce.

“It’s difficult to keep a watchful eye on cashflow whilst also making new investments, but history shows that it’s the companies who invest and adapt during tough times that have the best chance of long-term success.”

“Our offer enables businesses to upgrade their online presence, which will make them more resilient, and spread the cost, which helps keep their day-to-day operations going. The best chance Lancashire has of making it through this pandemic is if the business community comes together to support one another, and this is our way of supporting others, helping the economy and saving jobs.”
