This is my journey on creating an e-commerce business. From getting an idea, doing the research, developing a business plan, sourcing products, setting up the store and going to market.
I will also work on Growth Hacking the e-commerce business. This means I will be using Growth Hacking as a base to grow the business.
You will get an over the shoulder, very practical view of the whole process; failures and successes.
At this moment I am creating the course. New sections and modules are added as we progress.
Welcome. It is AWESOME to have you here on this page. Thank you for considering this course as part of your development.
The late Jim Rohn said it best. Skill makes labor valuable. When you develop your skills your work becomes more valuable.
Seeing how a world opens up for you when you get the right skills has always been an amazing experience for me. For more than 20 years I have been actively involved in training and development helping thousands of people to develop their skills.
Why can I teach this? I studied marketing at the University of Pretoria and completed my Honors degree in Marketing. During this time I came in contact with the Internet and worked at a computer company. That year I also created my first website, back in 1999 (yes, in 1999!).
I worked for a couple companies (one being a leading bank where my role was project and change manager). I implemented over 50 projects. A big part of this was training people. I was fortunate enough to have experienced live and online training then already.
Since 2006 I have had my own business. I created a digital marketing course. This course helps people understand digital marketing better. I also created a couple other courses.
In 2017 I had a call from Peter. He suggested to take my LinkedIn course online. A while later Global Entrepreneurs Academy was created. The aim is helping you develop your digital skills.
