Local Business Workshops Organised by Stonehaven Business Association

Posted on Updated on

Could you benefit from local business networking and improving your online trading?


The Stonehaven Business Association is organising a series of three courses, through the Business Gateway, to be held locally in Stonehaven, hoped to be of interest to many businesses and individuals and that it does not involve a trail in to Aberdeen, with traffic, time and parking, makes them all the more attractive.


The first is “Trading Online”, delivered by a Top Rated Seller on EBay.  It will be of interest to retailers, B&Bs, Craft producers and anyone with ambitions for joining the digital world, and the scope of the Course is detailed below.

The workshop will examine:

•             e-commerce opportunities for your business

•             selecting products to sell online

•             what product catalogues and shopping carts are available

•             appropriate payment options

•             the importance of usability and search engine optimisation

•             processes for order management and fulfilment

•             distance selling regulations

•             good practice in data security

•             website performance measures

•             selecting suppliers

By the end of the workshop you will be able to draw up a detailed action plan to set up your online trading presence.

When & Where: This course will be held in the Station Hotel on Thursday 9 October 2014, 10.30 for 11am when tea or coffee will be served. A soup and sandwich lunch will be provided, and it is anticipated that the course will finish before 3.30pm.

Price: £10 for SBA Members and £15 for non-members.

Maximum numbers around 24.  It is expected that this course will be over-subscribed.
