Brilliant businesses from across Newcastle came together yesterday to attend SuperFast Business Success, the first in a series of free digital marketing masterclasses packed full with practical advice, hints and tips and the latest information on digital marketing.
Held at Tyneside Cinema, the full-day event provided insights into how businesses can improve their digital marketing to become more efficient, productive, profitable and successful.
More than 60 businesses turned out to discover how digital marketing could help them, whether they were chartered accountants, recruitment consultants or window cleaners. The masterclass was for the benefit of all, with sessions covering social media, web development, cloud computing, video marketing and search engine optimisation.
Serving as a taster day for the full programme of business support available from Go Digital Newcastle, the event received an enthusiastic response, with local businesses buzzing about the business potential and opportunity that digital marketing enables.
We’ve pulled together a selection of our favourite tweets from Newcastle businesses who came to up-skill and learn lots:
