Description

If your business is already selling online, or you're thinking about starting an online sales operation, why not be business brave and consider the international marketplace? With the right information, set-up and skills, your business could capitalise on the wealth of opportunities available beyond the UK!

Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) invites you to attend a FREE one-day workshop, 'Selling Online Internationally', where you can learn how to increase international sales through your website.

Who's it for?

The workshop is open to any business with an existing website that's looking to develop its capability in proactive selling to international customers.
