HOW TO START SELLING YOUR PRODUCTS ONLINE
Do you have overstock items you need to liquidate? Are you looking to offset the loss of foot traffic in the winter months? Selling effectively online can help you minimize the impact of seasonality, but it’s tough to do well, and the Internet is fiercely competitive. This class will cover all of the basics, from understanding shipping prices, packaging to ship, printing labels at home, taking photos that bring out the best in your product, describing your product so it can be found by website searchers, and the pros and cons of the many platforms such as eBay, Amazon, and your own website. Participants in this class may wish to schedule time in our state-of-the-art photo lab, the OCCC Digital Media & Marketing Studio, located at OCCC’s Lincoln City Center. Participants are also encouraged to register for one of the SBDC’s social media marketing courses, as a vibrant website needs a savvy social media program, and vice-versa.
