How to sell better than Amazon
Sam Mallikarjunan

Amazon makes almost $300,000 a minute. Every minute. Every day. In this era of eCommerce megasites, it may seem impossible for individual businesses to remain competitive -- but it isn't. In this session, you'll learn how to define and target segments of the buying cycle in which Amazon isn't an issue. You'll learn the specific analytics and economics frameworks you need to plan for and execute a successful eCommerce growth campaign. You'll come away from this session with a solid understanding of how you can apply the latest research in strategy and innovation frameworks to help you sell better (if not more) than even Amazon.

What does the US Supreme Court decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair case mean for businesses?
Steve Hoffman
Avalara
The Supreme Court ruled in favor of South Dakota, granting the state authority to impose sales tax obligations on out-of-state transactions. Remotes sellers will have a new set of obligations and challenges ahead of them, while states could potentially gain billions in revenue. But what does it mean for your business?
We’re brought in two leading tax policy experts throughout the series to break down the ruling and explain:
- Whether remote sellers need to file and register in more states
- How the ruling affects future laws across other states
- How to determine whether you’re on the hook for sales tax based on where you conduct business
We’re brought in Steve Hoffmann , Strategic Alliances Manager at Avalara for an overview of…

The Key to Writing Ad Copy for eCommerce That Converts on Social Media
Ashley Ward
SEMrush
Writing ad copy for a Facebook advertisement is completely different from writing ad copy for Google Ads. A user on Google has intent, and is clearly looking for a solution. Whereas a user on Facebook or Twitter is casually browsing their News Feed, not expecting to engage with an ad. Which is why you need to know how to master the fine art of ad copy writing for any advertising venue.
In this session, we’ll look at how an eCommerce business can:
  • ​Write ad copy that attracts your demographic ​on social media
  • ​Promote your products using certain terms and phrases on social media
  • ​Analyze the different channels and tactics for each media channel856
  • See what kinds of advertisements your competitors are making
  • G​ain new ad copy ideas and A/B test

Building the Real-time Web with ASP.NET Core SignalR
Scott Addie
Microsoft
Much has changed since the 2013 inception of ASP.NET SignalR. The relevance of jQuery has diminished, WebSockets is widely adopted, and Microsoft has reimagined the entirety of ASP.NET with ASP.NET Core. But one thing hasn’t changed; real-time web apps are still extremely useful. With the release of ASP.NET Core 2.1, SignalR reemerges with some new characteristics. Building the real-time web has never been easier.

Unified commerce
Aman Sood
TMotions
Unified commerce has become a trendy buzzword over the last few years, but what does it actually mean? Modern consumers expect a seamless shopping experience across all channels and devices available to them. One of their expectations is the ability to have a check which location has the item they want to purchase and then immediately set up its delivery either to the store or the customer’s home. If your retail chain doesn’t offer that, then possibly some of your customers have already pledged their allegiance to the retailer that does. That’s where unified commerce comes in. By consolidating all your physical and digital channels in one place, it delivers accurate, real-time data that allows you to easily understand and meet your customers’ expectations.
