“E-commerce … Things that make you go hmmm!”
I. What is E-commerce on the Web and what does it really mean?
An overview of how businesses are making money on the web.
Enticing figures for you to ponder .
Where we’re going with E-commerce, a crystal ball view of the future.
How in the World did we come this far that fast?
Who is making the most money on the World Wide Web today?
II. You, too, can sell products on the Internet …
What do you have to offer the World?
What is selling on the Web?
How can you get in on this action?
How do you set up your web site for e-commerce?
What to do in order to generate exposure and traffic on your site.
How to market your business on the Internet.
How do you collect your cash?!?
Is your summer home going to be in the Florida Keys or a cardboard box in the Bronx? You choose.
III. The reality check …
“Build it and they will come…” Uh-uh!
Hardcore stats before you open your virtual lemonade stand.
What do you have to invest?
Are you willing to go the distance?
Sweat equity, oh yes! But the payoff can be sweet!
IV. Valuable options
Shopping on the Web.
What can local businesses do if they’re not ready for Global Enterprise?
What else can your web site do for your business?
Is E-commerce really for everyone?
What separates the men from the boys?
V. Wrapping it up …
You can’t afford not to be on the Web.
The world really is looking for YOU!
Keep your day job, and try a little “pure play” on the side.
Questions from the audience…
Speaker, Lisa Johnson
Lisa Johnson, Owner of LouisvilleBiz.com, has taken various elements of her professional history, and rolled them all up into one very
challenging role, that of Entrepreneur. LouisvilleBiz, her latest project and biggest passion, is a community portal web based business
which acts as an Online Concierge. A place on the Internet where those who reside in the Louisville and surrounding areas can go to find
recommendations for businesses of all types.
With a BA in Communications from the University of Louisville, Lisa gained valuable experience in restaurant management with TGI
Friday’s, sales management experience with Estee Lauder Cosmetics, and outside sales experience with Joe Graphics Commercial
Printing. In 1997, she and her partner (who is also her Mother and best friend), began Destiny Graphics & Design, Inc. Lisa was selling
printed materials and graphics design work, but found it difficult to get excited about printing. “I really liked bringing ideas to reality for other
businesses, but I felt I could be doing more for them.” Johnson says, “I wanted to come up with a platform, like a virtual stage, where
businesses could show their stuff on the runway of the Web!”
Destiny Graphics then partnered with a company called Enmedia, Inc., to form an Entertainment oriented web site called
PlanetLouisville.com. This highly interactive community based site gave Internet visitors a bird’s eye look into Louisville’s Entertainment.
This fast growing web site gained valuable recognition as a Kentucky Derby Festival Corporate Sponsor in 2000, and now receives high
volume Internet traffic.
From there, Lisa began planning what was to be her ultimate goal, LouisvilleBiz.com. “When I was searching for a reputable daycare for
my infant son, it would have been nice to have pulled up one web site which contained numerous testimonials about facilities here in town.
Testimonials by other parents who had been through the painful dilemma of trying to find a wonderful place to safely deposit their most
precious souls while they were away.” But there was no such web site out there, and hence LouisvilleBiz was born.
Having undergone substantial and time consuming design and theme changes, LouisvilleBiz was successfully launched on August 18,
2000, and has received warm reception from the Louisville public. Lisa now markets web links and Online Brochures to recommended
businesses in the metro area, and hopes that all who visit the site will walk away with new knowledge of a great caterer, lawyer, dog
groomer, florist, bakery, boutique, Realtor, and so on. Lisa knows this service will help many businesses and people alike, and will wrap
this up with only one thing left to say, “C’mon Louisville, I recommend it!”
