Cairns-based marketing agency ADhesive Communication has created a community grant called the “Marketing Success Program” which is open to all businesses in Queensland with under 50 employees. 

The program offers comprehensive marketing assistance and training to help businesses grow, with $25,000 of grants on offer to support seven businesses, with the major bursary valued at $8000. 

“ADhesive Communication is not a big business, but we have created a process that we know helps small businesses, so we want to use our skills to give back.” said ADhesive director Vanessa Allen said. 

“It’s about giving back to the business community that we operate in. “We believe when small businesses grow, they support the fabric of their local community and we want to help them to grow so the benefit spreads across the community.” 

The program will help businesses develop, with the winning applicant receiving a full assessment of their business, a portfolio of ideas and advice, in addition to a fully actionable 12-month marketing strategy, along with one month’s digital and social media marketing assistance. 

“Many businesses struggle with marketing and having it deliver measurable results. 

We help business owners understand how to market to get the right number of quality leads to grow their business,” Ms Allen said. 

“The right leads will result in better use of their time so they have more time to do the work they love and ultimately make more money.” 

The first round of the Marketing Success Program saw top prize winner HappyPause, led by founder Sandy Davies, go on to achieve consecutive record sales levels in the month during and following ADhesive Communication’s social and digital marketing assistance, and has recently celebrated their 1000th online order. 

Grant applications are open now and close on 8 August 2022.
