Selling your products or services online can rapidly grow your international sales. Effectively setting up your business and marketing your offer on some of the platforms available can propel your brand, expand your reach and tap into new markets.

To help you accelerate your international business growth, the Department for International Trade (DIT) is offering a free six week programme for eligible* businesses in Yorkshire who are looking to take advantage of the huge potential that selling online presents.

Choose from up to nine virtual workshops delivered by industry experts with knowledge of the very latest techniques and innovations. Whether you are new to e-Commerce or looking to optimise your reach, you will be personally taken step-by-step to successfully setting up, selling and delivering ongoing sales to overseas customers online.

In addition, you will receive free ongoing one-to-one support from your local DIT e-Commerce adviser who can work with you to conduct a digital trade review, produce an online strategy and answer any questions you may have along the way.
