More and more mirco and small business owners are becoming aware of the need to bring their business online. This is evident as we witnessed over 100 local business owners attended the “Build an Ecommerce Website Workshop” that took part in Johor, Malaysia.

The workshop is a part of a collaborative effort between EasyStore and Iskandar Malaysia, to help increase digital adoption among local businesses in Johor.

“The recent pandemic has shown us is that it’s no longer an option for businesses to go digital and have online presence or not. Now, businesses must learn how to do so” 

The workshop started off with an intro on the current ecommerce landscape and why it is important for businesses expand to multiple sales channels.

Different sales channel has its advantages and disadvantages.

Retail shops provide a great shopping experience for customers but it’s limited by geographic location.

Marketplace apps like Shopee & Lazada drives high, ready-buyer traffic to the platform. If you’re not listed in these marketplaces, you’re missing out.

Social media is where product discovery happens. Consumers learn about products they’ve never heard before through their friends and influential people they follow.

People search Google for information about products or solutions to their problem. Having a website will help your business to be found in the search results.
