Building an Online Shop

Presented by Craft Lake City at Online/Virtual Space

The way we connect to our customers is changing; let’s embrace it together! A high quality, user-friendly online storefront is a key component to finding success in your creative business. In this introductory virtual workshop, local makers Quinell Dixon and Sarah Anderson will compare and discuss the benefits and logistics of creating a web store through an online marketplace versus a custom, standalone web store. By providing a basic overview of their preferred services (Etsy and Big Cartel) as well as some insider tips and tricks they’ve picked up along the way, you’ll leave the workshop with the information and inspiration you need to launch your first online shop. The virtual class will end with a live Q&A segment at the end, so be sure to come prepared with your questions for the experts!
