Maximise Your Online Potential: Sell More Online
This FREE event will provide a diverse range of retailers with insights around opportunities for digital retailing.
“No industry,” wrote Harvard Business Review at the close of 2018, “is failing faster than retail.” What the data shows however isn’t that retail is failing. Instead, it points to the now unignorable centre of commerce: customer choice – both offline and online. Modern customers want options to buy through multi-channels therefore traditional retailers need to know the many ways they can sell online.
This workshop will address the range of ecommerce channels retailers can use to succeed online by making clever decisions on where to sell. This event will address the changing face of high street retail, sharing tips and advice around ways to manage change in addition to providing delegates with practical information around online selling channels available to choose from including;
- Custom built websites; platforms to choose from including WordPress, Magento | Speaker: Russel Crawford – Director at web agency Kobault,
- Storefronts; Shopify, Wix and Woo Commerce | Speaker: Mark Kelso, Founder of Glaze Digital and Shopify ecommerce expert

Date: 26th June 2019 | Time: 9.30am – 12.30pm
Location: Armagh – Market Place Theatre & Arts Centre
How Influencers Can Help Grow Your Business
Influencer marketing involves using key brand advocates to drive your message to the larger market in an organic way. It pinpoints people with large social followings who have sway over your target audience, then focuses marketing endeavors featuring those key influencers.
Rather than marketing directly to a large group of consumers, you instead pay influencers to get out the word for you.
People trust what other people (as opposed to corporations or advertising) have to say. This is why influencer marketing has become such a powerful and effective marketing strategy.
The Influencer Marketing session will provide an introduction to all key elements needed in order to develop an effective strategy and drive results for your brand, product or service.
