ASD Market Week Day 2 happened! Here are the must-see events, happenings, and new developments on the show floor from Day 2! Treasure Hunting, Internet Merchants Association speaker sessions, Free Shuttles to Las Vegas Market and more.

Attendees of ASD Market Week had a lot to experience on day two of their bi-annual event. After enjoying an opening night party at the Sayers Club at the SLS Hotel, attendees greeted day two with enthusiasm and excitement for what was ahead.

Among the highlights of day two included a presentation from “Treasure Hunter” Kathryne Shelton, countless educational seminars from experts that include Ron Cates of Constant Contact and Doyle Carver of the Internet Merchants Association – all to help ASD’s attendees take their new found knowledge directly to the show floor.

Known for her savvy tips on gaining online selling success and her fun approach to teaching others how to do this, as well, ASD Market Week was thrilled to welcome Katharyne Shelton as a first time presenter at ASD. Having experienced ASD as a buyer in the past, Shelton knows firsthand the value of sourcing her inventory from ASD Market Week.

She welcomed show attendees to pick her brain while unveiling her best trade secrets to those who joined her for a two hour “treasure hunt” meet-up at ASD.

“The two most popular non-amazon e-commerce platforms we recommend using are either Shopify or WooCommerce, “ Katharyne Shelton

Katharyne’s E-Commerce Tips:

Among the tips she shared included bundling products and working within a mastermind environment to help learn from others. Shelton offers more tips and support in her recently launched online community, Blue Sky Suite, where she also offers a directory that introduces members to valuable resources, product bundling tactics, and vendors – many of which she said are found at ASD Market Week.
