Rural Online Initiative

Ecommerce for Rural Business Course

This is a blended course, combining online work with interactive workshops. This course is designed to get your business online and selling quickly.  The coursework is completed over a one-month period.  There are four live video workshops, one each week, during the month that you will need to attend. The workshops start the first week of class and will be on Wednesdays at 1 pm Mountain Time.

If you currently are selling products or services in a brick and mortar location and don’t have an eCommerce website or online sales channel, this course will help you kick-start your online business.  You will first learn how to set up an eCommerce website specifically for selling your products.  Then we will continue to look at other online channels for your business like Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Shopify and how you can grow your business using them.
