    Topics

    Store Design & Optimisation

    Is your website easy to navigate? Are you building trust? Is your messaging effectively communicating your offer? From messaging and design to ease-of-use and trust, design a storefront that builds rapport with your visitors and converts them into buyers. Learn how to run experiments that increase the overall success of your business.

    Marketing & Brand Building

     

    Who is your customer? Understand your demographic, learn how to sell benefits not features, deliver personalized experiences at scale, automate your marketing, and build trust to increase customer lifetime value (CLV).

    Business Operations

     

    Supply chain planning, warehouse management, receiving and managing inventory, packing customer orders, shipping, and customer service. Streamlined operations are the bedrock of a successful ecommerce brand.

    Payments & Security

    Data security and secure payment are key to building trust with your customers. While this has become less of a barrier, it is still one of the most important factors in converting visitors into buyers. Learn about online identity verification, single sign on, OTPs and two-factor authentication for securing user profiles.

    Fulfilment & Logistics

    What is your fulfilment strategy? Explore the ways in which market leaders and up-and-comers are managing their fulfilment. This topic covers everything from supply chain and logistics to inventory management and returns.
