SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Veteran small business owners across Texas can now get free expert help with digital marketing efforts, including their website, through the new 100% Veteran Visibility Program.

Run by nonprofit small businesses lender, LiftFund, and funded by the Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans’ Assistance, the program aims to give veteran small businesses a boost in sales by helping them improve their online presence.

“Being found online is now an absolute necessity for any small business. It helps build credibility, your brand, and your sales,” says LiftFund’s Vice President of Business Support, Bridget Ross.

“However, we know that many small businesses lack the support and resources they need to get to that next level, especially our veteran-owned businesses. That’s why this program was created. We want to give you a path to succeed online.”

The 100% Veteran Visibility program pairs qualified applicants with a subject matter expert that works with them one-on-one to assist with website development, social media development, product/service photography, email marketing, and more.

Among qualification requirements are that businesses must be 100% veteran-owned, be registered with the Texas Secretary of State and must have started their business between January 1, 2016 to Dec 31, 2019 or between Jan 1, 2022 to Dec 31, 2025.

The 100% Veteran Visibility program serves businesses located in one of the following Texas counties: El Paso, Bexar, Aransas, Bee, Kleberg, Nueces, San Patricio, Starr, Victoria, Webb, Willacy, Fort Bend, Harris, Waller, Bell, Grimes, Travis, Williamson, Anderson, Angelina, Henderson, Wood, Collin, Dallas, Denton, Hood, Tarrant.
