Customers shop locally to have a relationship-based experience that meets their needs. These same customers may also shop on-line for efficiency or convenience. Competing effectively in today’s market requires an understanding of how to use both the face to face and on-line shopping experiences to increase your business. This workshop will explore ways to grow your customer base and complement the shop local experience with the conveniences of shopping on-line.
