We’re seeing large brick-and-mortar retailers frantically trying to figure out how to stay alive. The lockdown has made e-commerce more vital than ever in sustaining sales during an uncertain economic period.

Today, consumers don’t want to wait over a month to get orders on Amazon, nor do they want to go to a brick-and-mortar store, especially with lines out the door. This brings new opportunities to small businesses to capture new markets for sales growth.

Virginia Community Capital has partnered with Taking Stock Project Management to present a webinar focused on helping businesses review and evaluate various online sales options, how to setup and evaluate costs to operate, security, and how to cross promote.
