eCommerce and Point of Sale Basics for Retail Small Business (Archived Webinar recording)

Point of Sale – eCommerce – mCommerce solutions for Small Business

Selling online today is seemingly easier than ever! You hear the advertising online and in television ads on how easy it is to setup an eCommerce website and sell to your customers 24/7. Then, you go to actually do it and it’s another story. We hear this over and over again when clients have attempted eCommerce without knowing the right steps to get started. The aim of a cohesive retail system is to push retail traffic to your Loudoun County-based business. This is something frequently overlooked by business owners starting out or starting out online with selling and marketing their products online. Yes, the opportunity to sell your products to remote locations around the world is great, but the ability to direct walk-in traffic to your local business is greater. In this Web-based presentation, we covered the basics needed to understand what you need to get started in eCommerce, and the tools available to get you there successfully as a local, Loudoun County-based retail shop…the first time!

In this Webinar, we covered:
– Best-practices for planning a Web-connected Point of Sale system;
– Best-practices for planning and implementing an eCommerce or mCommerce solution for your Small Business; and,
– Tools that can help you build out the above effectively for marketing and operational success, and that fits a Small Business budget.

Webinar: Google Chrome: The Little Browser That Can

Webinar: Google Chrome: The Little Browser That Can


Most people don’t realize the importance of vital resources until it’s missing suddenly from their lives. Case in point: you likely don’t contemplate the air you breathe at any given moment, unless you’re deprived of it. Not to be too melodramatic, but that’s kind of what the Web is to most businesses today. It’s a commodity that’s taken for granted and only until you cannot access it do you realize it as sine qua non for running your business in this modern era.

And, of course, we access the Web through Web browsers. You may not think about how different Web browsers really are, again, until they inhibit your ability to get things done. Google had been thinking about this for years and in 2008 released their own little browser that can, Google Chrome. I say “little” because it’s code is compact and therefore very fast, and I said “that can” because it has some many abilities, you just need to ask and it can likely do it. That’s what this Webinar is all about: Google Chrome and using it in your business.

In this Web-based presentation, we cover:

  • why Small Business should be using Google Chrome;
  • the best features and extensions for Chrome for Small business; and,
  • how to implement Google Chrome on your computers/laptops and smartphones.
