Description

As shared in the promotional video for this course, Practical Steps to Starting an Online Retail Business is NOT a get rich quick scheme.

It is a practical plan towards achieving a set goal which could be:

  • get extra/ supplement income
  • get something beneficial to do given a lack of jobs in some economic environments
  • to set up a business which can be scaled into something greater

I believe in practical teaching. That would mean that for this course, there is an accompanying guide on which a plan will be built, and executable actions will be formulated towards a desired end.

The rationale is that you are committed to working on your idea as a project with a plan, time-lines and tangible deliverables.

The course will be delivered in 7 modules covering plan, product, finances, infrastructure, set up, marketing/ promotion and launch. During this time, I will work with you to lay out the basic plan that will be helpful to get you started.

The course is not extensive to offer the intricacies of e-commerce. It simply opens the door and it is our hope that what you discover and apply from this course, will engage you enough to lay a good foundation for your online retail business.

Who this course is for:
  • Someone who is jobless and is looking to set a venture that can provide some basic level of income
  • Someone who wants to supplement their current income with a venture that is not very time consuming
