As businesses continue to develop new ways of working during the current lockdown situation, Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council’s Tourism department is running a four-week course to help support these businesses as they move online.
Targeting the Tourism and Hospitality sector, this free course offers information, advice and support on how to effectively use social media platforms, build a strong web presence and boost your search engine optimisation.
The first session in the four-week course begins on Monday 27 April and is fully booked – so due to popular demand, another one is being organised in the near future. If you would like to express your interest in attending the next course, please contact .
This course will focus on a number of important areas. Learn how to create high quality content on Facebook and Instagram, reach new customers and build interaction, develop a strong understanding of social media advertising channels, using hashtags and how to manage a campaign. The last in the series will focus on discovering how to boost your visibility through search engines and keywords to generate bookings.
Each session will last for approximately two hours followed by an opportunity for a question and answer session. To be able to participate all you need is either a laptop, PC, tablet or smart phone. Training will be delivered through Google Meet.
