LRT Ready #4: Deploying an Effective Online Marketplace

Homewood Suites

Hamilton, ON L8P 1H6

Back in June, the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce announced “LRT Ready” – a four-part business preparedness seminar series for those who will be impacted by the construction of the LRT. The series is hosted in partnership with the International Village BIA and the Downtown BIA, and supported by Metrolinx.

The fourth and final workshop in this year’s series is scheduled for November 16, 2017 and will focus on creating an effective online marketplace. This session follows up on social media learnings from the third LRT Ready workshop hosted in October, providing hands-on experience using various online platforms. It will also introduce attendees to the tools and strategies to build an effective online retail presence, and the opportunities that exist by doing so. A focus on search engine optimization will allow businesses to understand how potential customers discover businesses online. Attendees will also learn how effective web design can be used to develop and enhance a new customer marketplace.

Visit LRTReady.ca for more information on the November 16 workshop and to register. Video recordings from each workshop are also posted online to ensure everyone has access to the information shared.
