We are all faced with unprecedented times, no one has lived through a global pandemic and no one really knows what to do in these situations. For me having a family it makes it pretty real pretty quickly, and taking care of your family becomes the number one priority.

For us as BIGBrave we see all our staff, partners and clients as family — we’ve always said that — and these are the times where your actions need to speak louder than words… With that we got together as management and decided to do our bit to hopefully help someone along this journey of navigating these uncertain times and help them to come out stronger. #strongertogether.

BIGBrave is offering 5 free websites with 3 months worth of costs covered for any business that feels they need some web presence during these times*

If you are interested please visit this link — Complete the registration form and we will be in touch.

*Please note that this offer provides a BIGBrave website template that will get you started quickly and help your business establish an online presence. Terms and Conditions apply.
