eBusiness - Selling on the Internet

Everyday new tools and applications for doing business online evolve to provide the business owner and the customer a better shopping experience. eCommerce is all about having a website, conducting business online, communicating with the customers and suppliers, knowing your competition, and being in the global market. It is a tool for moving your business forward in a time of rapid change.

e-Business - Selling on the Internet is a four-week course sponsored by University of Nebraska Lincoln Extension for businesses who are contemplating taking their business online. The goal of the course is to give business owners a better understanding of applying technology to increase profits.

Topics covered include what customers are looking for, what the trends of the e-World are, identifying who your competition is and what they are doing. The course helps identify who should design your website, how to determine your URL, and how to get one. The class looks at the good, bad, and what were they thinking in website design, and guides the participants to think about e-Marketing, that is keywords, search engines, and how to get your site found.

Although the classes have not yet been held, the registration deadline was January 7. We encourage you to contact Extension to see if any spots are still available (see contact information below). The 12-hour four-week class will be held from 6:00 to 9:00 pm in Sidney on January 21, 28, February 4 and 11 at WNCC; Kearney on February 19, 26, March 4 and 11 at UNK; and Kimball on March 27, April 3, 10, and 17 at the Kimball County Courthouse Annex.
