Join fellow manufacturers for peer-to-peer learning in a marketing cohort that will arm you with foundational elements to launch and maintain a successful e-commerce program. Engage with marketing professionals in various specialties during one-on-one check-ins, and walk away with an actionable marketing plan that you can implement in your manufacturing business.

You will learn how to:

  • Select and implement an e-commerce platform

  • Understand your target customers, and match messaging to the right audience at the right time

  • Build and track your digital sales funnel

  • Leverage your existing customers to create captivating content

  • Make the best use of social media tools

Marketing training often uses confusing jargon or is built around tools and techniques out of reach for most manufacturing businesses. This course is the opposite! Designed specifically for small and mid-sized Oregon manufacturers with little marketing experience, a strong desire to learn, and the courage to implement their learnings to launch a successful e-commerce program. It’s all part of OMEP’s promise to provide real solutions for manufacturers like you.

Is this the right fit for you?

  • You are a small to medium-sized manufacturer who creates / modifies the product you are selling
  • You want to sell directly to consumers, or you sell business to business but want to leverage e-commerce to improve sales
  • You are beginning to set up your e-commerce store or are unhappy with the performance of your recently developed store
  • You have limited staff dedicated to marketing or have little marketing experience

This is not an advanced course- if you are already operating a successful e-commerce store this is not a good fit.
