Can your business really make money from your website?
This question has occupied many business leaders in recent years. The problem is that, like any business decision, the issues need careful consideration before any investment is made.
To assist business to formalise their eBusiness plans, and to demonstrate how the Internet can open the door to a global marketplace, we are holding this showcase event in which a number of local businesses will demonstrate how their organisations have profited from the development of a company website.
The speakers at the event will include representatives from:
• A car import company who have used the Internet to turn their business from a back bedroom operation to a multimillion pound concern;
• The toy and hobby retailer who use their website to sell goods across the world; and
• The ferry operator who have used their online presences to provide a comprehensive service offering to their customers.
In addition to these real case study examples we have also invited Lloyds TSB to explain how online payment functionality can be added to a website.
The speakers at this event will not be talking about the theory involved nor will they be offering a magic panacea which can be applied to all business cases. The event will, however, provide you with an opportunity to generate ideas and learn from organisations that have practical experience of using the Internet to expand their customer base and increase their profitability.
To supplement this event the North West Development Agency ¡V has agreed to present details of the Northwest Broadband Fund. This programme is providing funding to support projects that will lead to increased use of broadband based connections within the region.
