Looks promising...

Whilst you may not be eligible for the grant, it still leaves you the opportunity to get set up with a new website for your pharmacy. Why? Because this is what pharmacy customers and their families/carers want.  


Having a website can provide you with a tool to connect with your customers.  To answer their questions about your business, even when your doors are shut.  A website with the right content means your customers will know if you do vaccinations or hire crutches at 2am - when they need to know.  


We recommend you have a look at the work we do - we only create websites for pharmacies.  It's a great opportunity for you, Government assistance or not, to bolster your business and become more digital.  It doesn't mean you need to run an eCommerce website or put your prices online.  It's more about showcasing your professionalism, your services, your people, your convenience and your competitive advantages. 


The compelling reason is that this is what your customers want:  your information, online.  

All is not lost!
