Creating an Online Shop the Easy Way – Setting your Stall out Online

Due to covid restrictions we’ve all had to buy online at some time or another – it’s estimated that 95% of UK computer users make purchases online spending in excess of £100 billion a year.

How much business are you missing out on if you don’t have that option?

If you’ve got something to sell and you’ve not yet considered setting up an online shop, you could be missing out on a 24/7 audience who are looking for products like yours. A good e-commerce website isn’t cheap but there are some more cost-effective ways to start your journey as an online retailer.

Join Cumbria Business Growth Hub on Wednesday 3rd March from 10am to 1pm for a workshop which will look at how some businesses have used online marketplaces to build their business, while others have found success on paid for platforms which take the hassle out of money handling. Whether you’re looking at a new business idea, or a way to make a little extra on the side this course will give you the confidence to make it happen.

By the end of this workshop you will know:

  • Which platform is right for your online store
  • How to take the pain out of online payments
  • How to use digital media to promote sales
  • Why your shop name matters
  • The quickest ways of packaging and promoting your video
