Sell Online: An eCommerce Primer - Silicon Halton Meetup # 88


MONDAY, February 13, 2016 | 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm | Halton HiVE, Burlington

Thinking of selling your products or services online? Feeling overwhelmed by the hundreds of options or paths you could take? Unsure whether to believe the sources that say it is so easy to get started?

Join us for Sell Online: An eCommerce Primer

We'll focus on the core building blocks of how to plan your e-commerce strategy, including:

  • Business Goals - determining what you plan to sell / how you plan to market to find customers and sell online
  • Platform – how different platforms serve different needs at very different price points
  • Product/Services Data – understanding, preparing, and structuring your basic product data + your searchable sales content + images/video
  • Payment Systems – understanding available payment systems and their costs
  • Distribution / Shipping – determining options for how you charge for shipping (because customers all want it to be free)
  • Integration – with your ERP / Inventory management systems
  • Organization – what skills do you need in your organization (internal or outsourced) to build and sustain your channel

Silicon Halton Day: Halton HiVE

Friday January 20, 2016  |  Halton HiVE | Drop in anytime, 8:30am - 5pm


Here's your opportunity to experience and experiment with co-working. Join fellow members at our monthly Silicon Halton Day at the coworking space Halton HiVE, Burlington. 

Our ideas are products of our environment. They are influenced by the conversations around us.
- Clive Thompson, Contributing Editor, Wired Magazine

Random opportunities and discoveries that arise from interactions with others – play a large role in coworking
- from Working in the UnOffice from Night Owls Press

If you’ve experienced the favourable collisions, the random opportunities, that regularly occur during the short span of a Silicon Halton meetup, imagine the possibilities during a full day? Collisions are the probable interactions with other local tech businesses or professionals or ancillary tech services. These collisions routinely produce discoveries, economic and/or professional growth.

If you work in home office or small office, can you afford not to come?

Lunch & Learn? Maybe

What time you spend at The HiVE is your decision. Come for an hour, the morning or afternoon, just for the Lunch & Learn, or all day. Come in, find a desk, get to work.

Free wifi, plenty of power outlets and seating locations to choose from.

Women in Tech Peer-2-Peer #25

WomenInTech Peer2PeerJanuary 24, 2017  |  7 pm  |  The Ivy, 3330 South Service Road, Burlington

Topic: Goal Setting

It's January and time for planning.  We will review some techniques for setting goals and creating and using planning tools to help us reach them.  This meeting will lay the groundwork for a year of success for members and the group as a whole to be revisted throughout 2017.  Come out and get ready to move forward.

The Women in Tech Peer 2 Peer group’s goal is to empower women in business by examining the unique gender based challenges of working in and with technology to effect progressive change within our working and community environments. 

Meet ups are generally for women only who work or live in Halton.  Non-Silicon Halton members are welcome.

Each month we'll have a topic for debate, and an opportunity for individuals to share challenges and successes with the group in a safe, supportive setting. 

Meetup formats may include dinner discussion meetings, guest speaker presentations, or workshops - depending on the topic.
