A BLACKBURN web developer is helping to support business through the ongoing pandemic by extending its 'build now, pay later' deal into the new year.

Digital agency eBusiness UK first unveiled the offer as a lifeline to companies hit by the pandemic during the first lockdown and have now announced that this will be extended into 2021 as the pandemic continues to bite.

Under the terms of the offer, new projects can be commissioned right away and the cost will be spread over the next 12 months, which covers the design and build of new websites, including ecommerce operations, and which eBusiness UK hopes will help businesses maximise their presence and visibility online.

Director Latif Kothia said: “The coronavirus pandemic is putting businesses under an intense amount of financial pressure, and one of the key ways in which they can overcome the challenges is by embracing digital marketing and ecommerce.

“It’s difficult to keep a watchful eye on cashflow whilst also making new investments, but history shows that it’s the companies who invest and adapt during tough times that have the best chance of long-term success.

“Our offer enables businesses to upgrade their online presence, which will make them more resilient, and spread the cost, which helps keep their day-to-day operations going.

"The best chance Lancashire has of making it through this pandemic is if the business community comes together to support one another, and this is our way of supporting others, helping the economy and saving jobs.”

The company says that its team can take a project from initial design to trading online within four weeks, giving customers a quick and affordable way to upgrade their web presence.

The offer is open to all types of businesses affected by the current pandemic, including private, public and third sector organisations including charities and not-for-profit companies.
