Building on the success of Kochie’s Business Builders TV show – now in its 12th season – Koch’s business Pinstripe Media is launching Bricks and Clicks, a brand new documentary series following the transformation of six bricks and mortar retail stores into global e-commerce brands.
“The greatest innovation challenge facing the Australian economy and business community is getting traditional bricks and mortar businesses online,” said Kochie’s Business Builders and Bricks and Clicks host David Koch.
“We’re seeking six ambitious retail businesses to be featured in a TV documentary. With hands-on mentoring including two intensive Sprint-Weekend workshops held at International Towers in Barangaroo, our team of experts will mentor business owners through the entire process of getting online.
“Their digital journey will provide the inspiration for other business owners to follow suit. Their experience will show others it’s not that hard, it’s not as expensive as you think and it will future proof and supercharge your business.”
Small business expert, Koch, believes unless you have an online presence, your business is at risk of collapse in this new digital age.
“The biggest barrier to Australian businesses getting online is fear… fear of the complexity, fear of finding someone to trust to help, fear of the high expenses. Our aim is to prove these fears are myths.”
To help successful traditional retailers transition to e-commerce, Kochie’s Business Builders is launching a six-part television documentary series, as well as a free 10-week online video course and event roadshow.
The Bricks and Clicks initiative is proudly supported by Xero, Netregistry and International Towers, in a partnership to help local retailers reach national and global customers.
“There are lots of programs to help tech startups innovate and go global, so we’re very excited to help transform the thousands of traditional bricks and mortar retailers across Australia who are yet to harness the power of digital.
“They’ve worked hard to build successful bricks and mortar businesses, but in changing times many business owners need a hand with selling and marketing online,” said Koch.
The Bricks and Clicks online course, free to any business, is a 10-week digital program designed to close that knowledge gap.
Expressions of interest are now open.
Businesses can self-nominate for the program or nominate others that would benefit from the program at www.kochiesbusinessbuilders.com.au/bricksandclicks/
