This workshop is led by at least 2 facilitators—a technical implementation expert and a marketing and branding specialist—who are available to answer any questions.
Your first steps.
You will learn what products are best to sell online, how to find an audience, how to determine the best methods for shipping and fulfillment, how to retain customers, and much more.
