Is Ecommerce right for you and your business?


With the massive success of Black Friday in 2020 businesses need to make the decision of how they are going to grow in their peak season. Businesses have seen their competitors go online, sometimes successfully, sometimes not. Create FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) and urgency in that there are 3 months until Black Friday and Cyber Week sales that will make or break their business.


Going online without any prior experience is scary. There is so much knowledge that you have to know before making the decision to spend money and time to get your business online and transacting successfully.

Our partner 123 Send (DNA Payments) will be holding a webinar for our members which will explore the practical steps required to successfully identify and launch an e-commerce business alongside your other sales channels.

The webinar will cover:

  • When do you know it is right to go online?
  • What kind of experience and money will you need to do things correctly?
  • What e-commerce solutions are out there?
  • What steps will you take to begin the process?
  • What does an agency do vs what can you do on your own?
  • Now you’re online, how do you maintain the site?
  • What are the common pitfalls and how do I avoid them?
  • Website payments and the omnichannel – how do I ensure that I am not missing anything and causing myself more work?


The webinar will be presented by Colin Stansbury – Colin is the VP of Strategic Partnerships at DNA Payments as well as working as a small business consultant. He has been working in the fintech space for 6 years and previously spent his time speaking about VAT and customs duties with Avalara. He is here to help businesses to understand e-commerce and the multiple ways that you as a business can increase your total addressable market without breaking the bank!
