with this grant, any business that hires me to do their site or online marketing, or app will get up to $5000 reimbursed back to them, making it essentially free. Adwords is too competitive for related keywords.How do i use this to promote my web design service?
Quick summary answer: You must promote this using direct mail to businesses who are in the right geographic region to take advantage.
Buy or rent lists from: Chamber of commerce, local business association, local council rates payers etc. Also find organizations that have mailing lists and agree a deal with them to promote to their list.
Get each to send a direct response email that drives readers to your landing page which includes these 3 things
1 - re-iterate the offer
2 - give a guarantee of quality
3 - add testimonials
Have an on-page registration form to allow you to phone and qualify each enquiry.
As an additional benefit you could get firms to refer others to you for an extra discount if their contacts sign up.
Note you'll need a strong process for follow through to ensure nobody gets overlooked.
This is an awesome promotion and really appropriate for SMEs I'm so glad you have gotten great support.
