This show explores eight vital e-commerce trade-skills. Online selling is a great business opportunity, but that’s only true if you do it well. Do it poorly and you’ll waste time and money. Incredible fortunes are won but sadly, they are frequently lost too. We’ll help you avoid that. We focus on strategic business principles and commerce strategies that are foundational to any successful company. We share systematic frameworks and models used to launch and scale ecommerce businesses. Whether you sell on Amazon, eBay, Wal-Mart, Etsy, or direct-to-consumer (DTC) on your own website, such as Shopify (or all of them - an omni-channel strategy) this show is for you.
