Event description
This session will help you identify what customers are looking for when buying online and cover key insights into e-commerce and platforms.

About this Event

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

Selling online is one of the largest growth areas for small business, particularly as the barriers to starting are very low. This workshop will help you to identify what your customers are looking for when buying online, provide key insights into e-commerce fundamentals and which online platforms work best.

This topic covers

  • Basics of e-commerce;
  • Identifying which platform to use;
  • Payment options;
  • Working on your unique selling proposition and marketing strategy;
  • Competitor analysis;
  • Customer persona creation.

This session is for people who have a product or service to sell online, whose business is ready to launch or who are looking to expand their existing business through online sales. 

Business Foundations is a not-for-profit organisation offering quality advice, mentoring and training to small and medium businesses at any stage of their development.

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, as well as 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, refunds are not available 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, speed, and video plugins (if required) before the start of the online workshop session. We recommend a camera and microphone capabilities to interact with online workshops.

Our online workshops are 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 do not 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.
