We are thrilled to introduce a new format to our bimonthly London Shopify Meetup! This month, we are officially endorsed by Shopify, and we also have the honour of hosting a very special speaker, visiting us exclusively all the way from Australia!
When we heard Amanda Noble was visiting the UK during the week of our Meetup, we had no doubts: we wanted to hear from her, and her experience of creating an online retail business that's now worth millions. “I have always been addicted to selling and the thrill of the deal is in my blood,” she says. “I love what I do. I’m very passionate about what I get out of life and my business.”
This month's agenda
Come meet Amanda in person at our London Shopify Meetup on Wednesday, 15th October, 7pm to 9pm.
We can also offer an exclusive Shopify subscription discount for those that attend. This edition is now officially endorsed by Shopify.
This month, we have a new format: we bring you insights from 3 e-commerce experts:
7.30-7.40pm - WeMakeWebsites Director Alex O'Byrne: 'Common reason people don’t buy from you... and how to fix them'
7.45-8.05pm - Charlie Casey of Loyalty Lion: 'How ecommerce has transformed customer loyalty'
8.10-8.40pm - Amanda Noble of Quirky Bubba: 'How Amanda took her business online and made a million'.
****PLEASE NOTE: We have now changed venue to Rainmaking Loft. For security reasons, we will need each attendee's full name - please get in touch with a message if your Meetup username is not your real name. Thank you.
Come along whether you are a startup with a great idea for a new shop or an existing successful online retailer, we will welcome you all. We can also exclusively offer 10% off a new Shopify subscription for all merchants who attend.
Looking forward to meeting you or seeing you again!
Venue: Rainmaking Loft - International House 1 St Katharine’s Way London, E1W 1UN
Look forward to seeing you there!
Building a multimillion dollar online business
Amanda’s business Quirky Bubba has become Australia’s number one online supplier of baby furniture.
While in the 9 -5 grind of full time employment, Amanda channelled the natural entrepreneur in her by selling on eBay. “It soon become an addiction and fuelled my need to sell again for my own profit. From grabbing everything I could around the house, I sorted more from friends and family, then I had one of those eureka moments that would change my life forever”. Within months Amanda had a business on her hands that had gone from kitchen table to full-fledge online venture.
Sourcing her own products, building a brand and working very hard to understand what did and did not work on eBay is at the heart of Amanda’s winning strategy. Her success has brought interest globally and she is now established as an authority on the subjects of eBay, Amazon and the world of online product sales.
Amanda now works with other businesses who are looking to take their products online. With the imminent release of her first publication “Reaching the Peak of Success”, Amanda arrives in the UK this October to share her insights, experience and knowledge of building a multimillion dollar online business. She will discuss how she sources stock, and the strategies she uses to sell products 365 days a year.
