"Really enjoyed that the course was split between Daniel & Katie over the two days. The first day we got a technical handle on online-selling, the how-to's, css, lots of information, and how and where to set up shop online, great stats on where to find our customer segment online, how to target them with google analytics, etc, and good advice on our best options for selling online. Katie then went in depth with the emotional side of selling online - our connection to our customers, their experience, developing our brand, getting recognition from other online sources, and meeting our customer segment via social media. Really great to get the full two sides of equation from two different points of view and professionals in different areas. Really helpful - really enjoyed it!"
