We continue to focus on the latest news from Gardenex (The Federation of Garden and Leisure Manufacturers Limited).

Gardenex and PetQuip have confirmed their second e-commerce Webinar in conjunction with the Department for International Trade plus Salesupply and Infinity Blue. This is being held on Wednesday 1 July from 10.00am to 11.00am.

Sell Successfully 

The title of the webinar is: Set-up and sell successfully on marketplaces – an introduction for B2C and B2B.

Online marketplaces offer great opportunities for brands and manufacturers to grow their global revenue. However, where exactly are these opportunities for you, what are the challenges, real and perceived, and how could you meet and overcome these?

This webinar is designed for companies that are considering launching on marketplaces, or have just started on this journey. In addressing some key questions, it will allow you to make better informed decisions on strategy and day-to-day operations, including where to go for help. 

Topics Covered to Include:

Are marketplaces suitable for you and if so which one to choose?

What capabilities do you need?

Putting together your own strategy.

What about channel conflict, ‘race to the bottom’ etc?

A few words on B2B marketplaces.

The webinar is a second in a series designed by Gardenex and PetQuip to provide valuable insights and practical support for members in expanding their international sales online in a profitable manner.
