1 Choice 4 YStore Class We are in the process of moving our online courses to a new home. We are setting up our classes using Moodle Software and still trying to learn our ins and outs. The move is taking a little longer then we had hoped but would like to offer a preview for all of our subscribers!

We have started our online course called Yahoo Store Editor 101. The main focus of this course is to help you move around within the Yahoo Store Editor. Adding products, adding sections, moving things around, etc. The class is short and sweet and we are offering this course free of charge to our customers. All that we ask is that at the end of your course, provide us with some feedback. Was the course easy or too hard? Did we explain things in ways that made sense or were you lost? Let us know how we did! We are asking you to grade us! Send your comments to support@1c4y.com

What is REALLY exciting is that store owners can use the course for teaching new employees! Instead of spending days trying to teach them how to use the store while also trying to take orders, get out orders, and everything else you have to do....You can give them the URL and have them complete the course by themselves. We hope to save you hours of time it would take to train them.

The class URL is www.1choice4yourstoreclass.com
