What People Are Saying...

Still Have Doubts? Imagine the Following Situation...

You’ve just spent most of your career working in a non-marketing role doing something you love.

When you get the promotion to Sales or Revenue Management (or both!), you’re happy at first, but then you might be under pressure because you know you don't have all the digital smarts of doing it efficiently. 

You know you're a whizz on Instagram. You can find your way around Facebook if you needed to. But you haven't a clue how to produce a digital marketing strategy and implement campaigns and assess their performance using appropriate metrics. 

All this and the summer season is right on top of us!

Don't Panic.

You can get help.

Not the regular overpriced waffle that you've heard about elsewhere.  You don't need to sit in a room and learn about why digital marketing is great. 

What you need is guidance to make an actionable plan you can use now. Tools that will save you time. Templates and strategies used by real digital marketing practitioners to manage and support hotels' growth. 

Covid has been a game changer for the hospitality sector and it has accelerated the adoption of new technologies and switched the entire audience to digital. 

There is a lot of opportunity. 

But coming from a non digital background, there’s a disconnect between what you can do and what your employer is looking for.

If you're younger, you're faced with the very real problem that employers assume that anyone your age is born knowing how to ‘do digital’ and that’s not always the case. If you're older, you're afraid of being called out for not knowing how to do your job, when all that is happening is rapid and irrevocable change all around you. It's hard to keep up.

What you need is a digital skills bootcamp that has been especially designed for hotels needing to come back after Covid and win in this new space.

A crash course on how to plan, prepare and promote social media campaigns, create content for websites and analyse the results.

The Modules by Brightspark Crash Course in Digital Marketing is a 6 week live online training with one of the leading practitioners in digital marketing in Ireland. 

You will learn the fundamentals of digital marketing from a strategic business perspective.

You will get experience at setting up campaigns from scratch and cheatsheets on what to do when you take over accounts, like you will in your first job. 

It will give you the skills and confidence you need to land that first job and live up to your new boss’s expectation that you can in fact do everything!

The Modules by Brightspark Hotels Digital Skills Bootcamp will teach you how provide you with the tools used by digital agencies when they write copy, make captions, plan content and promote the message and get it out there using paid social media.  

When you take the course, you will learn how to do things, and you will be given exercises to do that week that will put it into practice. You can work on your content and marketing while you are doing the course. And most importantly of all, you will get access to support and feedback while you do it.

You can take the course, which is delivered over 6 weeks, and get peace of mind that you're sorted and work efficiently.

Or you can continue winging it and hope that everything goes well.
