    IndieCommerce Institute

    ABA presented two IndieCommerce Institutes for ABA members/IndieCommerce stores in fall, 2013.

    Program

    The day began and ended with plenary sessions for all attendees. The morning panel discussion examined how stores support their website: the number of fte’s devoted to different aspects of their sites, job descriptions and descriptions of workflow. The afternoon panel discussion examined “best practices” for promoting an e-commerce website.

    Main Session

    The main session was structured into four mini courses, each lasting approximately one hour:

    • New Feature Overview
    • eCommerce 201—Order Processing
    • eCommerce 202—Custom Products
    • How to Improve Your Site—Design Tips

    Advanced Seminar

    The Advanced Seminar was intended to facilitate a group discussion among advanced users about work supporting their respective sites.

    One-on-one Session

    IndieCommerce staff was available the day before each Institute to meet for individualized one-on-one attention.
