Do you dream of setting up your own eCommerce website? Do you want to sell from your smartphone? Do you know how much it will cost? Before you jump into it, do you understand the basics of search engine optimisation (SEO), where to buy and register a domain name, how to drive traffic, create online banner, etc in order to run a successful online shop?
But shop owners and their employees should not have to learn html, web design, web hosting, payment integration, SEO, ad creation, ad campaigns management, optimisation techniques, and so on to get online.
Join us, as we will share what are the available platforms to setup an online shop. And demonstrate how easy it is to setup an online shop without any technical knowledge. We’ll also share some case studies and the entrepreneurial journeys of real people who turned their passion into a business.
Come to the event and walk away with your very own mobile-friendly online store at the end of the session!
