Event description
This session explains the steps required to set up an online shop including licenses, software, website development, financials and SEO.

About this Event

Please note: this event is run by the Small Business Development Corporation for small business owners in Western Australia only.

Australians are doing their shopping increasingly more online. Having an online shop is a great way for customers to purchase products or book appointments for services online, which can significantly reduce the time businesses spend performing these jobs manually. However, the process of setting up a digital store can be difficult to navigate.

This session explains the steps required to set up an online shop, such as licences and software required, web design and development, monitoring sales and search engine optimisation, as well as financial accounting. 

This topic covers

  • Custom develop your online store vs using a standardised platform;
  • Hosting options;
  • Compare mainstream Software As A Service (SaaS) options;
  • Logistics of licences required, returns policies, and financial accounting;
  • SEO and dominating the online space for your market;
  • Branding the online store for your products or services;
  • Automate for delivery of the products you sell.

This session is for people: 

  • Whose business is ready to launch;
  • Who are in an established business;
  • Who have little/no experience with online retail.

Belmont Business Enterprise Centre (Belmont BEC)is a non profit community based organisation established in 1994 to assist in the growth and development of small business. Our presenter is a small business operator who provides digital support to solotrepeneurs and small business founders and key personnel.

This session is presented by the SBDC, the only agency in the Western Australian Government dedicated to helping small business. In fact, we've been providing practical support to small business owners for more than 30 years.

Important booking information

You are limited to two tickets per booking (you can of course make more than one booking).

We will be emailing you with important information on how to find workshop locations and what you need to bring, if it is a face-to-face event. If you are attending an online workshop you will receive instructions and a link on how to join and important information to ensure your device is suitable. Therefore, if you are booking for more than one person, please ensure you provide each person's email address.

To book for larger groups, please contact us on 133 140.

You can cancel your booking up to 24 hours before the workshop starts. Even for free sessions we would appreciate you cancelling if you cannot attend so another small business owner can take your place. For paid sessions, no refunds will be issued within 24 hours of the scheduled start time.

Additional information for online workshop sessions

Please check your computer's suitability for online workshops, including its sound quality, browser, internet bandwidth and speed and video plugins (if required) before the start of the online workshop session. Camera and microphone capabilities are recommended to interact with online workshops.

Our online workshops are run as live, interactive sessions, similar to the format of our face-to-face sessions. For this reason, there is a limited number of tickets per session so our presenters can adequately interact with, and respond to, attendees. Recordings of these live sessions are not available if you do not attend the live event time.

Additional information for face-to-face workshop sessions

No, you don't need to bring your printed ticket.

We value inclusion for clients requiring disability access and our workshops are delivered in a variety of buildings and locations. If you would like further information about accessing a particular workshop please use the contact button at the end of this page to send us your query.
