Both Amazon and Shopify present vast opportunities for product-based small businesses, but competition is fierce. Is your business ready to consider conducting online sales? In this workshop you’ll learn how to navigate the rules of both Amazon and Shopify – and, more importantly, you’ll learn how to succeed!
