Reviews

Snowdonia Country Cottages“A fantastic social media training course in Llandudno with Tourism Growth, with so much brilliant content.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself and learnt a great deal which I can put into practice in my business. There was so much valuable stuff – I’d have happily stayed for a second day!”

Aberystwyth University logo“We were delighted to host Tourism Growth’s Boosting Your Sales on Social Media training course here at the University. When Mid Wales Tourism first approached us about it back in April, we were very keen to be involved.

It was great to have the course so well supported by local tourism businesses – and to see it ‘sold out’ in advance.

Three of us attended from the University. We very much enjoyed the day and took a lot away from it. The course has given us a great deal to think about, and we’re very excited to put what we learned into practice!

The trainer was excellent – very enthusiastic about the subject, engaging and personable, and he got everyone involved. He was extremely well prepared on every business that attended.

The course has provided us with plenty of opportunities to improve efficiency – and to increase our sales and growth.”

“A very informative training course – really very helpful. It’s opened my eyes to new business streams and to new audiences!

We’d used Facebook successfully before, but the course has taught me a number of specific ways we can take advantage of Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ as well. So many great new ideas for marketing our venue.

The other big benefit from the day – it’s shown me how to be very targeted with our use of social media, and how to spend time marketing the business online more efficiently.

I’m now really looking forward to attending the next Tourism Growth course, ‘Getting More Sales from Your Website’, in the Autumn.”

Parc-yr-Hebog Cottages Lampeter Ceredigion“A very interesting and informative training course.

It’s frightening to think of the marketing opportunities we’d been missing as a business – and the work we now need to do.

The insight given to the various social media platforms was very useful. The trainer was excellent – he pitched the content at just the right level for me.

I’m glad that MWT Cymru let me know about the course, and that I attended. The need to use the key platforms, and the benefits to be gained by our business, are now very clear to me.

I’m looking forward to attending the next Tourism Growth course in October!”

The course just gave me the focus I needed. It showed me how and where to spend my time on social media to have maximum impact for the business.”

The trainer gave us some great information and helped us come up with many new ideas for maximising our revenue.”

Safe and Sound Outdoors Llangollen“I attended Tourism Growth’s social media training course – not expecting to learn too much relevant to me and my business.

How wrong I was! It was a great course, an excellent day. If you’re a leisure and tourism business in Wales, I strongly recommend you attend this course next time it runs.”

Dave the trainer had certainly done his homework on everyone’s presence on social media. I’ve learned such a lot from the course and taken away so many practical ideas to use in the business.”

I know the trainer has run these sessions around the country – but he tailored everything he did to the Northumberland tourism businesses attending and was completely interested in us!’
