Kickstarter Workshop

Thursday 26 July 2018 | 9am – 5pm

Digital Marketing isn’t a skill you can learn just by starting a business: trial and error takes too long and wastes too much money.

The one-day Kickstarter Workshop offered delegates the opportunity to hear from experts in the field to help build essential skills needed to thrive and have sustainable growth in 2018 and beyond!

Delegates examined REAL CASE STUDIES and received practical guidance on making ecommerce work for your business.


WHO WAS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?

  • Established traditional retailers that want to increase their online sales
  • Pure-play retailers that are struggling to make their website profitable and sustainable
  • Small ecommerce sites that needs to get their sales to the next level
