Event description

Description

City of Parramatta Council, in partnership with the Western Sydney Business Centre, is offering the Small Business Workshop Series; a program of workshops designed to guide those interested in starting, developing or growing a small business in the Parramatta Local Government Area.





Setting up an Online Business to Avoid Common Costly Mistakes


The retail landscape has changed markedly in the last decade, and the rise of sites like Amazon Australia continue to change the ecommerce space.

This two hour session will cover: what retailing now looks like, the key skills you need to succeed online, core steps to set up an ecommerce business, and tips how to be a success and not a flop!

We will demonstrate points through some case studies, plus live Q and A with Rebecca Dinoia of Soap De Villa who has had an online shop since 2013 and in 2018 added products to Amazon Australia, so can share the reality of her Amazon experience.


Key takeaways:

- know common mistakes so you don’t make them!

- learn tips to enhance your product descriptions and images

- maintaining customer experience without face to face

- how to get traffic to your ecommerce store

- assess whether an online store is for you
