10% of revenue earned by Myer now comes from online. 23.5% of lottery revenue for Tabcorp comes from online. Now more than ever, online is critical for retailers.

In this free workshop I will look at trends, share real-life newsagency case studies and explore:

  • The latest retail trends and how online and physical store intersect.
  • How to free up capital through smart tech use.
  • How to improve the quality of business data, and from this the quality of business decisions.
  • How to leverage online hot opportunities like omnichannel, click and collect, buy now pay later, price comparisons and SEO.
  • How to leverage online to drive in-store traffic.

Each workshop will be live and interactive and relevant to your type of business. This will not be a sales pitch. We will share what we know having done this work ourselves for the retail businesses we own in the homewares, pop culture, collectible, plush, gift and games segments of retail.

I will also cover: SEO, shipping options, free shipping, the role of social in online sales, returns, bundles, branding and a plan b for your web strategy.

    Great move in the right direction-ignore on line and perish. Look at the retail space and use it for Sales with display and range. Use on line for depth of product and volume -easy pay and delivery.
