What You’ll Learn

Many traditional SMEs or start-ups have difficulties reaching out to customers online. Instead of building a website and spending huge amounts of energy and time on marketing it, traditional businesses and start-ups can leverage on the existing customers of online platforms. This course will empower participants to develop detailed e-Commerce campaigns centred around existing e-commerce platforms (Lazada, Shopee and Qoo10) and their built-in marketing and analytic tools. Participants will also have the flexibility to choose one particular platform they wish to focus on during the course (this is to encourage them to set out real and actionable plans for setting up their own e-commerce presence beginning with one platform first immediately after the course).
