Recently I was interviewed by Cara Waters from the Bold Business podcast. During this interview I share some of my tips and tricks on making your bricks and mortar store an online business success.

After listening in on part 1 of the podcast with Steven Lewin, owner of Urban Attitude, I timed in and gave my insight on how Steven and many others can boost their traffic and presence both online and in-store.

I talk about the importance of building an online community, how your business can get started on creating an online presence and how to get people walking through the doors of your store.

I also shared my opinion on some of Cara’s burning questions about building a successful bricks and mortar store online from a public relations perspective.

The podcast highlights include;

Part 1 (Steven Lewin)
• What is Urban Attitude.
