Springboard into Exporting with E-Commerce
30th November 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
E-commerce platforms offer huge opportunities and can be a quick and easy way to begin exploring exporting. Selling via an e-commerce platform allows your company to increase its global reach and test potential markets without the costs traditionally incurred.
In 2016, 58.3% of internet users purchased a product online. Today there are 3 billion active internet users and it is estimated that 63% of these internet users will purchase a product online in 2019*. E-commerce platforms bring several advantages such as:
- Being quick to set up and sell on
- Increasing brand awareness
- Eliminating geographical limitations providing access to new clients as well as markets.
The Department for International Trade East of England have joined with expert speakers Shopify and Amazon to provide you with an introduction to the platforms, discussing the advantages they bring, their pitfalls and some tips on how to get started. Following the seminar there will be a chance to participate in round tables with the speakers and network.
This free workshop will provide you with an overview of selected e-commerce platforms and provide you with a chance to speak to the experts and get tailored advice for your company.
Who is this workshop suitable for?
This workshop is ideal for those who are looking to start their export journey, those who are looking to start selling online or those who are looking to explore new online markets.
