Ultimate Digital Selling Programme available to Sheffield Businesses

If the last few months have taught businesses anything, it’s the value of being able to sell products online.

Online sales are booming at the moment, accounting for 31% of total retail sales in June 2020 according to the Office of National Statistics. So as physical sales in the current climate continue to present a challenge for some businesses, the potential for selling via platforms such as Amazon and eBay is now truly being realised.

If you’re a business that needs to quickly get up to speed with online selling you may be interested in a FREE selling programme currently on offer by Sheffield-based Marketing Consultancy, Shelton Associates.

Their Ultimate Digital Selling Programme crucially provides local businesses with key skills to sell on a host of digital product platforms such as Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Shopify, Not on the High Street and more.

This comprehensive programme normally costs around £475, but is currently 100% grant funded by the Sheffield City Region Skills Bank for eligible Businesses in Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster.

The programme involves two keynote live training webinars covering the following Online Selling Platforms:

  • How To Sell on Amazon (Amazon Training) • How To Sell on eBay (eBay Training)
  • How To Sell on Etsy (Etsy Training)
  • How To Sell on Not on The High Street

  • Other Exporting Opportunities such as CDiscount & Walmart
  • Social Media Selling

There is also the opportunity to book a 1-2-1 ‘Zoom’ Session to develop an ‘Online Selling Growth Plan‘ with a specialist digital selling consultant.

This means that businesses will crucially then have a real plan of action for their business, to embed the skills gained from the training webinars.
