Step 3: Request a Quote

Once you’ve registered, you will be able to select Pow Wow Media as a Service Provider and request a quote from us.

Step 4: Proposal Preparation

After receiving the request, Pow Wow Media will discuss the best course of action as per our previous meeting to meet your wants and needs. We’ll then develop a proposal  for Activate Tāmaki Makaurau.

Step 5: Request Proposal Assessment

Once you’ve had a look over the proposal, request an assessment for approval by an  Activate Tāmaki Makaurau assessor. Then we wait for approval. If the proposal is not immediately approved, you will be given instructions on what further information is required to have it approved.

Step 6: Approval Received

Once approved by Activate Tāmaki Makaurau, both parties will be sent a contract outlining the agreement. Once signed, we can begin to implement the services listed within the proposal.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: To receive this grant, all services must begin within the first month of applying and all services must be completed within three months from the date of the approval. That means you could access a total of 3 months worth of digital marketing services with us, potentially for free. 

*This funding is limited and Activate Tāmaki Makaurau will make decisions based on their own meetings and eligibility criteria.

We’ll discuss what you need help with and how our services can benefit you. Whether that’s over a coffee, a zoom or a simple phone call, that's up to you.
