About the E-Commerce Curriculum

We start by walking you through core questions you should ask yourself before choosing an E-Commerce Platform and hosting. We provide highlights about what makes Square the best e-commerce platform to build your store on.

Because we believe brand building happens one moment at a time, we then develop your brand identity based on your business goals and values. It helps determine how to approach the rest of your store so messaging resonates with your target customer.

Then it’s time to get organized. We take a high-level look at your inventory, organizing products into categories and establishing SKUs.

Next comes listing development. We show you how to take stellar product photography, research keywords, and train AI to assist in writing product descriptions.

Once your store is full, it’s time to set-up payments, establish shipping and tracking processes, and develop your online store policies.

Uploading your inventory, completing stylizing your site, and launching gets your e-commerce store live. We don’t end there though.

It’s time for a test sale, checking inventory management and syncing. Now the site is ready to produce sales.

The final step is a recurring one: market, learn, revise, and repeat. We’ll show you how to manage your reviews and reputation, how to measure leading and lagging metrics, develop a omnichannel approach, budget your marketing dollars, and how to manage what you can in-house and outsource the rest.
