UPCOMING EVENTS

Digital 24 Digital Marketing and Social Media Event NI

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
  • Choosing marketplaces for selling online; eBay, Amazon, Etsy, Facebook Shop, Instagram Shop | Speaker: Niamh Taylor, Director of Digital Twenty Four

Host: Emma Gribben, MD of Digital by Emma and Google Accredited Trainer across Europe
