Free E-Commerce and E-Marketing Workshop

Tuesday 19 Auguste commerce
The BNZ Business Centre, upstairs 124 Victoria Avenue
With so much research and trade now conducted on line it has never been more important to have an internet presence. Social Media and Websites can be used effectively to supplement in-store trade and drive more foot traffic into your business. Plus it doesn’t have to cost the earth to use these tools effectively in your business. Rather than bring in an outside expert we have approached locally owned businesses that are currently using their websites and social media to increase sales. We invite you to come and pick their brains, learn the rewards and pitfalls, what works and what doesn’t, what to try and what to avoid when taking your business on-line.
This lunch time workshop has limited space so get in fast, lunch will be provided.
