For many small brands, marketplaces offer a quick route to market and easy access to a large customer base. However, it’s difficult to take that next step and move from sales only to building your own customer base.

Most small businesses will have a website - the challenge is to turn it into a viable sales channel.

GS1 SmartSearch, our new product vocabulary for ecommerce, helps you do just that!

GS1 SmartSearch provides a detailed description of your product(s) for search engines to read and understand– making sure they’re indexed accurately. With your products better indexed, they’ll show up on more relevant search results –found by customers ready to buy products like yours.

What you will learn
  • Why SmartSearch – the search landscape and opportunities for SMEs
  • What is SmartSearch – an explanation of structured data vocabularies and where SmartSearch fits
  • How to implement SmartSearch – hands on implementation of the vocabulary, looking at the process and the tools to map and measure results
Who should attend?
  • Any small business owner or marketing manager that has control and oversite of their website’s search marketing strategy
  • Recommended for staff with knowledge of and access to the website content management system

A day workshop from 10:00am to 16:00pm for a limited 20 delegates.
