Entrepreneurs one step ahead with free seminars

One of the most significant opportunities that Webit offered young entrepreneurs was the chance to be united with the world’s leading minds and learn from them the road to online success at the 2 day free seminars. The visitors listened to stimulating presentations of online giants and challenged them through panels to learn how to create and grow an online business and what it takes for a start-up to become a legend both locally and globally.

“Even if you have a large number of customers, a small increase in your retention rate should dramatically increase your profit” said Altuğ Inci, CEO and Co-founder of Euromsg underlining the importance of retention marketing. İnci also focused on how to utilize e-commerce; “In e-commerce, landing page design and targeting is crucial”, he stated.

“Storytelling is the most important tool in engaging people”, advised Clark Mathis, Executive Producer for teen web-thriller RUNAWAYS. “It’s all about high production value and setting yourself apart”, he added.

During the 2 days, masters and apprentices discussed the advantages and challenges of the new era, how to optimize a campaign through different online tools, the benefits of the growing channel e-commerce and how to have long-lasting relationship with consumers through social, mobile and digital tools.
