The Amazon Small Business Accelerator e-learning programme includes a videos series on mastering social media and market research.
Katrina Danube, founder of vegan and natural soap brand Little Danube, used the e-learning videos to learn new skills for expanding her business and developing a product.
"I really like the tips on social media management," she said. "When I started, I didn't have an Instagram account. I now run my business through Instagram. This is how I discover other people and how other people discover me. I think the videos helped me to get a more comfortable managing social media.
