Successful November online marketing workshop in East Kootenay, January webinar in the works
On November 4th, HTA hosted a workshop in Kimberley, “Online Marketing for Heritage Tourism Operators”. This one-day intensive session helped participants learn about effective (and low/no-cost!) online marketing techniques for their attractions.
We’ve been hearing some great feedback from participants:
“The workshop was really wonderful: it was so helpful, though kind of mind-boggling!”
To help participants put what they learned into practice, we are now planning a follow-up webinar to be held in January.
As well, for more information about the next full one-day web marketing workshop in January in Nanaimo, stay tuned. Or contact us anytime firstname.lastname@example.org.
