Contents and Program of the Master in E-Commerce
The E-Commerce Master course is, among our e-commerce and ecommerce Milan courses, the one designed to concretely support those who want to start or manage an E-commerce project. A team of 15 specialists chosen and coordinated by us will teach in the 15 training modules in which the course is articulated, all that is needed to be able to work professionally at the highest levels in the e-commerce world. Below are the 3 main areas in which the E-COMMERCE Master Course is divided:
1. The Technologies for E-Commerce
It starts with an understanding of the various technological options available and the choice of the software to be used as a technological platform. Particular attention will be devoted to the evaluation of different Open Source solutions such as Magento, Prestashop and others, with insights on how to install them and how to use all the main features, those of Magento (the most widespread platform in the world currently) in particular. In this phase we will also discuss layout, usability and optimization of the User Experience. In this phase the participants will already be able to put their own website and commerce online using Magento, the software we consider the best solution to open an online store quickly and at low cost, without however renouncing the opportunity to use as needed very wide range of Magento features.
2. The Strategies and Management of an E-Commerce
In this part we examine in depth the key factors to consider in order to realize a successful E-commerce, considering both aspects of online marketing and business levers such as Delivery policies (delivery of goods), Drop Shipment options, the theme of the modalities of payment, customer care, the importance of customer retention. We will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of e-commerce and the teacher will give the main tips to sell online. The theme of traffic acquisition channels and their impact on conversion into sales will then be introduced. We will also understand the supporting role that social media can play. In the final part we will deal with the topic of performance monitoring through the tools of Web Analytics and the prospects of mobile commerce.
3. The Generation and Conversion of Traffic for e-Commerce
Having made the right choices of technology (software), knowing how to use the features and having planned an optimal strategy are only the starting point of a challenge that over time will be played above all on the ability to acquire qualified traffic for your E-commerce portal and turn it into sales, possibly recurring and even better if generated by positive references from other customers. For this reason there are numerous training modules dedicated to the main online sales channels: The SEO (1 basic module 1 advanced module) the SEM and display advertising (1 basic module 1 advanced module), EMAIL MARKETING, inbound marketing and LEAD GENERATION, DIGITAL STRATEGY and media integration. The increasing incidence of mobile as a tool for traffic generation and sales (mobile commerce) determines the choice to insert a specific module on MOBILE MARKETING, just as the growing presence on the social media of the E-commerce world also required a form of introduction to social media or FACEBOOK MARKETING. Much attention is then devoted to the tracking tools (the analytics) necessary to understand the return of online investments, consumer preferences, seasonality of sales, the location of buyers, the performance of different traffic acquisition channels. For this reason also on the WEB ANALYTICS we expect both a BASIC module and an ADVANCED module.
