    Event description

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

    Australians are doing their shopping increasingly more online. Having an online shop is a great way for customers to purchase products or book appointments for services online, which can significantly reduce the time businesses spend performing these jobs manually. However, the process of setting up a digital store can be difficult to navigate.

    This session explains the steps required to set up an online shop, such as licences and software required, web design and development, monitoring sales and search engine optimisation, as well as financial accounting. 

    This topic covers:
    • Custom develop your online store vs using a standardised platform;
    • Hosting options;
    • Compare mainstream Software As A Service (SaaS) options;
    • Logistics of licences required, returns policies, and financial accounting;
    • SEO and dominating the online space for your market;
    • Branding the online store for your products or services;
    • Automate for delivery of the products you sell.

      This session is for whose business is ready to launch, who are in an established business or who have little to no experience with online retail.

      The facilitator of this topic, Belmont Business Enterprise Centre (Belmont BEC) is a not-for-profit community based organisation established in 1994 to assist in the growth and development of small businesses.
