 There’s no doubt that the pandemic has ramped up E-commerce.  Online retail sales are expected to virtually double from pre-pandemic rates in 2019 of $3.5 trillion USD to over $6.5 trillion in 2023. SMEs investing in E-commerce capacity now will be ready to participate in this growing market. 

Based on their feedback, businesses from across the Atlantic region have been benefiting from our E-commerce Masterclass program 

Designed by LearnSphere Associate Second Spring Digital with over 20 years of experience in the field, this program aims to simplify digital adoption for SMEs and increase their online sales.  

“The coaching and tools saved us from fumbling around in the dark. They helped us narrow in on strategy and metrics. Excited to see the results in our business.” ~ Jenny Knox, Marketing Manager, Cascumpec Bay Oyster Co.   


Second Spring helps businesses get results through eight interactive learning sessions, supplemented with easy-to-use tools and templates.  Peer-to-peer learning is built in, with participant businesses grouped into cohorts based on their size and their level of E-commerce experience. This training helps SMEs grow their understanding of E-commerce tools and strategies and create an actionable E-commerce plan for their business.   

“When we are in the weeds, the templates are a great tool to help us focus on strategy.” ~Heather Estey, Executive Project Manager, Ganong Bros

At LearnSphere we know that positive returns on learning investments are essential for every business owner.  The one-on-one coaching component of this course enables participants to transfer their learnings from the classroom directly to the realities of their business operations.  

Thanks to continued support from the Nova Scotia Association of Community Business Development Corporations (NSACBDC), the Government of Canada, and the four Atlantic Provinces, we are now offering a third round of the program.  

This third session offers the flexibility of pre-recorded sessions combined with direct contact with the experts through virtual office hours and coaching.  Seats are limited, so don’t delay; learn more about this opportunity on our website. 

“The information was extremely relevant, up to date, and easy to understand. This was the perfect course for us in start- up mode. We are hoping to launch further with the skills we gained.” ~ Katie Thompson, Co-Founder, DIOSA Designs
