Redhead Seminars – March (Tulsa, OK), May (Dallas), July (Las Vegas), September (New York), November (Los Angeles)
These five-day, 16-session seminars are designed to “to give budding entrepreneurs the knowledge and tools to realize their dreams.” The Redhead team will teach you the techniques and strategies they use to “grow startups into multi-million dollar companies.” These seminars are a complete, all-in-one ecommerce learning package – everything from store concept to selling online in only five days to digital marketing.
The Redhead team has launched over 1,200 successful online stores, providing complete, secure ecommerce shopping carts, as well as custom-tailored levels of service, from visual design only to complete turnkey solutions. They have worked with “numerous Fortune 500 companies over the last 10 years creating billions in revenue.”
Keep in mind, though, that many of these events have an attendance cap, and registration for most of them is time-sensitive. For example, Redhead Seminars allows a maximum of 12 students in each class to ensure quality individual instruction. January’s Orlando seminar has already filled up, and registration is now closed for that one.
