The Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Councillor Trevor Wilson said: “This was the final in a series of very informative and innovative digital marketing workshops organised by the Council to help local businesses from all sectors promote, market and sell their products and services better online.

“The feedback from participants has been fantastic. I hope they continue to use the new skills acquired to enhance and develop their business.”
