UPS Benelux and Rise & Lead Women host a webinar to help small business owners in the Benelux establish an online presence and expand their reach, using digital marketing strategies to grow their revenue and thrive during the global crisis.

“Build and Market Your Ecommerce Store”


The entire world has been affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic with many businesses gravely impacted due to movement restrictions. For small businesses, the length of time that they cannot conduct business may be something they can’t overcome.

A recent Goldman Sachs survey of over 1,500 small business owners found that more than 50% of small businesses will not operate beyond three months due to the economic impact of the pandemic.

To minimise the adverse effect of the pandemic on product-based small businesses owners in the Benelux area, UPS Benelux and Rise & Lead Women, Netherlands plan to hold a training webinar titled, “Build and Market Your Ecommerce Store” webinar, to be held on May 28, 2020, at 4 pm (CET). During the 90-minute free webinar, UPS and Rise & Lead Women will discuss strategies for Ecommerce setup, digital marketing and delivery solutions that will help reposition and keep small businesses running, even with the limits and restrictions on movement.

“Small and medium-sized enterprises are the driving force behind the economy of the Benelux, said Massimo Perrotti, Benelux Marketing Manager. As a technology and innovation-driven company, UPS enables SMEs and entrepreneurs to grow their business globally easily and quickly”.

According to Ebere Akadiri, the founder of Rise & Lead Women, “the world, as we used to know, may never return to normal. Therefore as we adjust towards “the new normal,” small business founders who have pivoted, finding profitable ways to keep serving their customers will thrive”.

Jochen Brughmans and Massimo Perrotti from UPS will be joined by Ebere Akadiri, a small business consultant and founder of Rise & Lead Women. They will discuss how small business owners can pivot, grow, and scale their businesses by using E-Commerce and digital channels. There will be a Q&A session to enable participants to get the best out of the Webinar.

By joining the webinar, participants will also receive a free 15-minute virtual consultation with UPS and Rise & Lead team to help small and medium-sized business owners to discuss challenges with digital marketing, shipping, and logistics. Participants will receive a promo code to ship at discounted rates with UPS, which will be valid for 1 year.
