Event description

Description

E-commerce is a good way to start your business. Initial costs can be low (good if you don't have a lot of money!) and it's pretty simple to set up. But in reality, doing business online is no different from running a physical store.

In this Skill Build, industry practitioners will discuss how they curate their e-commerce experience to increase sales. Topics will include; how to drive traffic to an e-commerce site, how to present your product to an online audience, how to gain and keep new customers…

This session is targeted at all stages of your entrepreneurial journey, even if you are starting, growing or scaling your business.
