Getting started with Shopify for Creative Businesses
January 17 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Hosted by South of Scotland Enterprise, and funded through the Creative Digital Initiative (CDI), the purpose of these “digital deep-dive” sessions is to increase the digital awareness and vital skills of the creative sector in Scotland.
Creating beautiful products might be your focus, but selling them to customers needs to be a priority. While popular marketplaces like EBay and Etsy allow a simple route to market, having your own ecommerce platform ensures you maximise the benefits from selling online.
Shopify is the world’s largest and most popular e-commerce platform used by millions to bring their creative businesses online, well known for it’s ease of use and simple set up.
In this 3 hour webinar you’ll learn what e-commerce means for your business and what Shopify actually is. We’ll show you how to use the seller’s dashboard and take you around an example store so you can see if Shopify is the right fit for you. We’ll show you how to build your own store using Shopify for free using a trial. From products to payments, shipping to stock control, we’ll guide you through all the basics that you need to know to get started, and have plenty discussions about how to promote your new online store using digital marketing.
Delivered by Jay Taylor – a consultant with NSDesign specialising in Ecommerce and Small Business Marketing.
