Ecommerce for merchants

Published:  28 June, 2011

LONDON: Robin Somerville of eBuildingSupplies last week hosted a packed masterclass on ecommerce at the BMF headquarters.

A wide variety of merchants attended from around the country, with an equally diverse range of web knowledge and intention.

Set in the context of marketing, key subject areas covered included such things as website must-haves and search engine optimisation with useful tips throughout.

Mr Somerville has delivered 'tasters' at BMF events which lead to this oversubscribed masterclass. Feedback was positive and Mr Somerville commented that more sessions were in the pipeline.
