Overview

As e-commerce matures and customers are trained by your competitors to expect more, marketing and commercial professionals must be able to satisfy customers whilst also increasing profits.

James Gurd, a thought-leader in e-commerce, heads up this course examining online merchandising. This course takes a whole-business approach to the art of selling online, from promises made to customers, right through to post-purchase selling.

Program

This intensive course is focused on ensuring you understand the fundamentals of online selling, guiding you through a framework for online merchandising. From product selection and presentation, through search, sorting, filtering and promotions, to an introduction of rule-based merchandising, we will explain the key approaches to merchandising with relevant examples and case studies.

The day considers selling 'in the round': from the promises made to customers through to post-purchase selling. We also place online selling in the context of offline selling (store, catalogue and telephone) as well as within a performance framework, suggesting some KPIs to assess progress based on a test-measure-optimise approach to selling.

The multichannel, commercial approach will allow participants to communicate the benefits of a whole-business approach to selling online, as well as measuring and sharing the success.

Course Requirements: A wi-fi enabled laptop or tablet is required for this course. If you cannot bring your own please contact us to reserve a rental laptop at a cost of £50 + VAT.

Every attendee will gain access to a complimentary Econsultancy report valued at £600. Choose from over 500 reports covering in-depth best practice advice, market data and the latest digital trends.

Who should attend?

This course is targeted at beginner/intermediate level, and is ideal for anyone interested in improving their approach to selling effectiveness online. Examples include: senior marketers responsible for the sales performance of the e-commerce channel but who don’t have direct merchandising experience; junior and mid-level online merchandisers interested in planning for increased sales effectiveness; offline merchandisers looking to understand the capabilities and demands of modern online selling and systems; or heads of e-commerce looking to lead team improvements in selling and wanting to compare their team’s capabilities with a good practice framework.
