(Nominal Fees) Breakfast with @TiEPune: Lessons on E-commerce & Internet advertising for entrepreneurs

  • Date: Sat, 15 Feb 8:30am – 10:30am
  • Location: Shekhar Natu Hall, 5th Floor, A-Wing, MCCIA, ICC Towers, SB Road

TiE Pune Breakfast session – with Pehr Luedtke CEO of SpotZot

As with any business move or expansion, considering an online presence can raise a sometimes dizzying list of questions for an entrepreneur. Exactly what must be put in place to make it happen? How does an online presence change the market for the business? What are competitors doing? How will people shop? What kind of security is required? How will customers pay online? Small businesses that have little or no e-commerce capabilities on their websites should know about taking the next step in converting their marketing sites into selling locations that extend their customer bases, images and sales in entirely new ways. Those entrepreneurs not yet online need to discover how the Internet is likely to transform their businesses and introduce them to markets far beyond those which are currently in reach. The most amazing aspect of e-commerce is its ability to impact sales and marketing efforts immediately. By going online, suddenly a neighborhood bakery or a home based consulting service expands its reach to a national, or even international base of potential customers. Web-based sales know no international boundaries.
