TCMO presents The Digital Marketing for Business Certificate

Digital marketing for the tourism, hospitality and leisure industry is becoming increasingly complex. Managers and Business Owners need not only to deliver customer excellence and profits but now they’re also expected to compete for business in new channels and digital communities that emerge every day.

Hence, why many are asking themselves how they can expand their brand online while still having the time to run their business and gain market share.

To address this ‘digital skills gap’ the obvious choices are to either hire additional staff with digital marketing skills or outsource, both of which can be expensive and maybe just a quick fix.

Ultimately this is a challenge which cannot be ignored as demand for digital marketing skills will only continue to grow and evolve with time.

The smarter business will retrain the existing team to deliver their digital marketing goals.

The breakthrough solution for what is considered by many to be a complex problem is an online education course in digital marketing, which is based on ‘true-to-life’ scenarios, and is continually updated to reflect the latest industry best practice.

“I really enjoyed the whole programme. I found it very interesting and well structured. The video lectures and the practical examples with fictitious companies were so useful. I realized how many aspects the digital marketing includes. The comprehensive structure gives to any student a clear understanding of this industry.”

“I feel that the certificate has given me a solid foundation knowledge and understanding from which to further develop my skills and use of digital marketing strategy and tactics.  The course covered a wide range of topics however I found the video led format easy to follow and very engaging. Having worked through the topics and lessons I can see multiple opportunities to apply my learning within my role, particularly as I now manage the digital presence for my company. The course has made me appreciate more than ever the value of keeping up to date in this fast-moving environment and continuing to learn.”
