2-Day Hands-on eCommerce Course

e-Commerce Workshop Malaysia

In this fully hands-on weekend eCommerce Workshop will guide you how to build a successful e-commerce business by yourself. Not just a bit, but everything from practical set-up and product upload to day-to-day operations, response marketing to measurement and optimization. We even include marketing techniques and continuous improvement, all in workshop-style classes, all done by yourself hands-on (you need to bring your laptop!).

Learning Objective

You have seen this: there are many e-commerce workshops out there – even ‘free’ ones – that promise to tell you all the ‘Secrets’ of doing business online. If you have ever attended one of those you know that you get out highly motivated, but you still don’t know what to do and where to start. We are different.

During this 2-Day hands-on Workshop we will together build a fully functional e-Commerce Store from Scratch.

Is it difficult? No! There is no coding involved. If you can use i.e. Microsoft Word you have all the Skills needed to build your own online Store with us.

NOTE: You are expected to have your own products to sell. This is not some MLM nonsense where we push products on you to sell. If you don’t have any products we can give you some ideas, but we don’t ask you to sell any of our own products like those MLM fellows do. What you want to sell is all up to you!

IMPORTANT: If you have not already done so there will be an additional purchase that you will have to do, namely to purchase/register your own Website (domain) Name, and for website hosting (in essence you will have to rent a space in a special computer called a server which will hold your website so it can be accessed by the whole world). This purchase is not from us (we will not receive any of your money) but from a specialized service provider. We have found what we think is the best deal on the internet for this, you get a full three year of website hosting and a free domain name (one year free) for about US$140. You need to use the following link to get this special deal: Website hosting and free domain name

. You can do this now (click the link and follow the instructions), or if you are unsure how to do it we will give you detailed instructions on how to do this during the workshop. A valid credit or debit card is required for these purchases.
