Event description

Description

This workshop is part of the Digital Development Business Support programme.

This workshop will give you practical tips and advice on how to begin selling online, or improve your sales if you are already using e-commerce. It will give you a clear understanding of how best to apply techniques within your own business environment.

NB – This is not a practical workshop and delegates are not required to bring a laptop computer.

Outcomes

The workshop covers the full range of options to engage with e-commerce, from simple systems like Amazon and eBay to templated shopping malls or your own standalone shop. It will also cover how to get paid in the most cost-effective way, and the security that needs to be in place for this to happen safely.

Finally, we’ll look at what you need to understand to comply with the legal aspects of running an online shop. The workshop is delivered in plain English, to focus on the benefits for your firm.

Am I eligible?

These workshops are available for businesses, partnerships, sole traders, and registered charities, with a trading address located within Greater Lincolnshire (North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire & Lincolnshire).

To access these workshops, your business must complete an SME enrolment form in order to check the business’s eligibility against the funding criteria. (The form will be sent to you on completion of an Eventbrite booking - if one has not already been completed and on file).

As this is a business support focused programme, rather than a skills programme, all workshop/masterclass places are limited to one delegate from each business to ensure we can support as many businesses as possible at each workshop.

Through Eventbrite you are requesting to book a place on a workshop/masterclass and this delegate place will be confirmed via email once the SME Form and eligibility have been checked.

As this is a fully funded business support programme it is delivered free of charge so its success is measured based on the number of businesses that are supported and the hours of support. The eligibility dictates a minimum threshold; therefore each SME must commit to attend a minimum of two workshops/masterclasses to comply with the funding criteria.
