Affiliate Marketing workshop by Herman Maes & Bol.com

Tuesday, June 16, 2015 0 , Permalink 0

A while ago we hosted a Belgian Girl Geek event together with bol.com. Now they launched a nice initiative that we gladly support by sharing it with you!

Did you know that you can easily earn some money with your personal website or app? Even without placing annoying banners or using pop-ups?

Maybe “affiliate marketing” rings a bell. It’s a fun way to promote brands or services on your blog, and receive a nice commission instead. Easy as cake!
A good example we would like to introduce to you is the bol.com partnership program.

Because affiliate marketing is often considered as unknown territory, bol.com likes to invite you to take part in a practical workshop at Idealabs (Antwerp). What’s on the menu? Bol.com will explain what their partnership program entails. But to really get you started properly, we’ll give the floor to avid blogger and online marketer, Herman Maes (Daily Bits / Intracto). He will tell you how affiliate marketing works, how you can implement it and what benefits it brings to you and your blog.

Workshop by Bol.com & Herman Maes

We’ll provide the necessary refreshments and snacks. But don’t forget to bring your own laptop, so you can kick-off right away.

Practicalities:

• Saturday, June 27th 2015, 10am – 13pm
• Telenet IdeaLabs (Lange Klarenstraat 19, Antwerp)

You can subscribe by sending an email to bol.com@lewispr.com

Hope to see you there!

Test your e-commerce idea!

Tuesday, April 21, 2015 0 , , , Permalink 0

E-commerce is a hot topic! The number of online shoppers increases every year, and also the amount of money spend online keeps increasing. In 2014 more than 6,6 million Belgians bought something via a Webshop. However 42% of the online sales is happening in ‘foreign’ Webshops, cause only 3 out of 10 Belgian entrepreneurs sell their products or services online…

Our #5BEGG event was all about becoming an e-entrepreneur, and a bunch of Belgian Girl Geeks will be attending #smdayBE about Social Commerce on the 12th of May. A lot of people are thinking about launching a Webshop, but not everybody dares to take the step. So maybe you need a little push? Well, KBC has come up with a solution to stimulate Belgian e-entrepreneurship: the Pop-up Webshop.

In the KBC Pop-up Webshop you can test during 3 days if a Webshop would work for your idea or existing business. If your 3 days were successful and you loved it you may keep your Webshop and expand it with the support of KBC Experts.

KBC Pop-up Webshop
How does it work:

1. Register your idea or business before the 1st of May
2. KBC selects 10 winners that may open a Pop-up Webshop during 3 days
3. KBC will offer support until 6 months after the launch of your Webshop

Still hesitating? KBC also developed a tool to check if your business has ‘online potential':

So go for it, but don’t start a handbag webshop or we won’t stay friends :p
