+ Understanding eCommerce model and choosing the best one for your business.

+ Dropshipping and the elements of using external parties to help with sales and productions.

+ The Customer Journey, and how to craft an experience to remember (including unboxing).

+ The Basics of marketing, how to build an audience and connect with customers.

Creative’s Guide to Selling Online is a collaborative online workshop and participants will be encouraged to share experiences and ideas, make connections and foster peer relationships.
