Get Online NOLA Provides Free Website for Small Business in Need
NEW ORLEANS — From Get Online NOLA:
Get Online NOLA, a woman-owned small business specializing in digital marketing, has created a new grant for small businesses. The Get Online NOLA Grant is an annual opportunity for small businesses to get a free website to help kick start their digital presence.
The first Get Online NOLA Grant winner is Will & Toosie Specialty Iron Work. Pillars of the Lower 9th Ward community, Will and Rochelle “Toosie” Peck own Will & Toosie Specialty Iron Work. Will specializes in creating the ornate but functional ironwork fences and railings that New Orleans is known for.
The Get Online NOLA Grant was created to support small businesses or charitable organizations with a free website built by Get Online NOLA. A high quality website can help these organizations to grow and thrive in our increasingly digitally-driven economy. The grant came at the perfect time for Will & Toosie Specialty Iron Work. They suffered a major setback earlier this year when Will’s van, filled with his specialty tools, was stolen.
“Having a professional-looking website for my business is a big deal. I can show my previous work, and find new clients online without needing to rely on word of mouth,” says Will Peck, owner of Will & Toosie Specialty Iron Work.
“We think that the small businesses of New Orleans make it truly special! As a small business owner myself, I know that an unexpected win can make a huge difference, especially in the early years. Custom websites can be unattainable for many small businesses, so it’s important for us to provide a quality starter option. When we heard about Will & Toosie, we were inspired to gift them a website and make this an annual opportunity for the small businesses we value so much,” says Wendy Dolan, Founder and Owner of Get Online NOLA.
The Get Online NOLA grant will be an annual opportunity for small businesses to win a free website. Small businesses in need of a free website can apply on the Get Online NOLA website. The 2023 Grant is open for applications now and will close in March of 2023.
