8 Nov 2022 - 8 Dec 2022

Do you want to sell online but don’t know where to start?

What will the workshop cover?

  • The Dos and Don’ts of selling online.
  • What do customers look for when buying online?
  • The different platforms available – should you choose a 3rd-part marketplace like Etsy or use your own website?
  • Reaching the right customers.
  • Selling through Social Media.
  • Taking payments.

This workshop is aimed at people with little to no experience selling online. You might be a business owner, have responsibility for sales or marketing, or be at the start of your business journey. Whether you sell candles or cars…you’ll come away from the workshop with useful information that can be put into practice.  There’ll be no (or very little) technical jargon and no marketing BS…just simple, practical and affordable ways in which you can start selling online.
