If your business is already selling online, or you're thinking about starting an online sales operation, why not be business brave and consider the international marketplace? With the right information, set-up and skills, your business could capitalise on the wealth of opportunities available beyond the UK!
Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) invites you to attend a FREE one-day workshop, 'Selling Online Internationally', where you can learn how to increase international sales through your website.
The workshop is open to any business with an existing website that's looking to develop its capability in proactive selling to international customers.
This course is not designed for tourism businesses. For tourism specific digital workshops, contact your local Destination Organisation. They will be organising workshops on behalf of HIE across a number of topics, including international digital tourism.
Do you know how to develop an effective international website? This interactive workshop focuses on giving you the tools you need to create and manage a strong online presence overseas.
The workshop helps you identify goals and objectives and enables you to write a short action plan for business growth via international online sales.
Please note, if you can't make this specific date, we've got various workshops taking place throughout the Highlands and Islands.
