IndieCommerce for Small Stores (at Winter Institute 2020)
E-commerce is too expensive, complicated, and time-consuming for small or micro store, right? Wrong! If you have a small store with yourself as the sole proprietor or with only a few staff, this session is for you. IndieCommerce Senior Manager Geetha Nathan will moderate a panel of booksellers from small stores who will walk attendees through their decision to include e-commerce, how they used the opportunity to expand their brand, and the resulting impact to both their customer base and bottom line.
