Following the outstanding success of the inaugural Online Seller Network meeting The Wholesale Forum, Tamebay & YBC have confirmed the date for the second event - Thursday 26th October - bringing you another evening of socialising aimed at anyone who sells online via any platform - ebay, Amazon, Etsy or your own website?.
The format for the Online Seller Network is the tried and tested networking (with plenty of complimentary drinks and nibbles), with an hour’s panel session featuring the guest speakers and Helen Parker from The Wholesale Forums and Chris Dawson representing Tamebay as the moderator. Ted Wigzell from Your Business Community will be acting as your host for the evening and introducing the panel and guest speakers, but don’t worry there will be no tedious PowerPoint presentations. This is an opportunity to put your questions to the panel of experts and get the guidance you need as well as mingling with your peers and networking with colleagues.
This time we are joined by two major players in the ecommerce market:
Rob Bassett – Sales Director (Hard Goods) at eBay
An 8 year eBay veteran, Rob is now one of the longest serving eBay employees in the UK and not only that but he also sells on eBay on his own account so is very familiar with some of the issues that sellers face. He’s passionate about eBay and looks after Seller Growth for Hard Goods which includes two of the biggest categories on eBay – Technology and Motors (including parts and accessories), as well as physical media – DVDs, CDs, Books and Video Games.
Lorna Beament – Marketplace Engagement Manager at GS1 UK
Lorna has a ton of real life retailer experience having worked at Mothercare, Boohoo and Dune on their marketplace businesses before joining GS1 to work with marketplace sellers. Structured Data and Product Identifiers are something that just about all sellers struggle to get to grips with, but in a world of Voice Ordering and Virtual Assistants, structured data is more crucial than ever… And that’s without figuring out how to get your products found on marketplaces and good old fashioned text based search engines but Lorna has the expertise to know what’s needed to succeed.
Helen Parker - Founder Bid On This and The Wholesale Forums
Bid on This was founded in 2014 to give online buyers access to live auctions from UK Auction Houses. Members can listen live and participate in real life auctions in real time. In the past 3 years bidonthis.co.uk has grown exponentially – now with 10,000s of weekly auctions and over 70,000 buyers all benefiting from the low prices and often VAT free products to re-sell online! They were awarded eCommerce Award’s 2016 Best General Website.
The panel session will be followed by another great opportunity to network, hopefully meeting new people to help your business grow.
The Online Seller Network is totally free to attend, but space is limited, so if you are available on the evening of the October 26th book today to reserve your place.
