Upcoming courses from Local Enterprise Offices

I am delivering some courses for Local Enterprise Offices that would help you generate more sales between now and Christmas. All of these courses are delivered via Zoom
Note: Many of the LEOs don’t mind people from other counties attending but please check their booking page to see if they specify. Some prioritise companies within their county if booked out.


1. How to increase your sales locally around your town or county using Digital Marketing 

Tuesday 30th August

Would you like to increase sales to people who are looking for products or services within your county?

In this course you will learn a range of digital marketing tactics that will help you to market your business to people: –

  1. Who live in your location and would be interested in the product or service you offer e.g. a local taxi, solicitor, accountant, yoga classes, vet, pharmacy.
  2. Who live anywhere but are looking for a product or service in your locality e.g., restaurant, hotel, estate agent.

The course is run by LEO Westmeath. It is highly subsidised and costs just €20.  For more details and to book a place please visit the LEO website (click here)


2. How to create Reels for marketing on Instagram and Facebook

One of the best ways to market your business on Instagram and Facebook is by creating Reels.  Instagram is placing more and more importance on Reels (short videos typically set to music).   When you create a Reel you get more reach and engagement and Facebook has also introduced Reels.

In the run up to Christmas,  knowing how to make Reels will be one of the most important skills when marketing your business on Instagram and in this course, you will learn everything that you need to know.

The course is highly subsidised and  is being run by the following LEOs
