The course was funded by Mid Ulster District Council and provided hands on practical advice on various digital marketing tools including Canva, Facebook, Mailchimp and Twitter together with a session on the A to Z of public relations.

Lough Neagh Partnership, engaged Chartered Public Relations and Marketing Practitioner Nicola Bothwell to deliver the course. Eimear Kearney, Marketing Officer, Lough Neagh Partnership, said: “We work with so many micro and small business owners across the district who operate tourism businesses which rely more than ever on attracting customers online. We engaged NB Chartered Communications to deliver this intensive digital marketing training course to incorporate real time practical activity which enabled the delegates to take away invaluable hands on learning for growing their business with the aim of ultimately saving them time and expense.”

Councillor Wilson said: “I was impressed to see so many of our local entrepreneurs availing of the opportunity to develop and enhance their digital marketing skills. Competing in an increasingly digital world means that it is more important than ever for businesses to keep their skills and knowledge up-to-date and this is exactly the kind of course they’ve benefited from on their doorstep.”
