Creative Credits: £4,000 government grant towards your PR spend

Are you a business based in Manchester, an SME perhaps?

Are you considering PR, would it help your business?

Well if you want to raise your profile in the business community, with potential clients, then this might be of more than some interest.

NESTA, a body that promotes innovation in business, is providing £4,000 towards the costs of marketing and PR projects.

Recipients will invest £1,000, but as this is matched by a £4,000 grant it will mean that 80% of the cost of a project or campaign will be covered.

The scheme called Creative Credits is a pilot project and is being launched in Greater Manchester, with a possible view to rolling it out to other cities.

So if your company is based in Greater Manchester then why not register, it takes about 10 minutes to do so.  (You will need a company number and be VAT registered).

There are 75 grants available, which will be selected in October.  If your business is chosen – it is a lottery process – then you can select a supplier from the online gallery on the Creative Credits Internet site to provide the service you need, be it photography, design or PR.

Artisan will be providing PR and copy writing.  Integrated campaigns providing marketing and social media elements can be provided in conjunction with PR.
