Do You Know Someone That Wants To Learn How To Use The Internet?

Past particpants of Basic Internet Training who are now online
Do you know anyone that could benefit from a basic internet training course?

Does your Mam or Dad or grandparents know how to use Skype and email?  Are they confident enough on the internet to book their own flights without your help? Do they know how to pay their motor tax online? Would they like to learn?

Dungarvan Enterprise Centre will be running a basic internet training course for beginners that will run for four weeks, starting on Wednesday, October 15th.

The course is called Benefit 4 and is a government based initiative and therefore will cost participants just €10.

After completing the course, participants will be able to use search engines, email, Skype, pay their motor tax online, and book flights online.

Unfortunately, the government scheme that provides this cost effective course is coming to an end so this is the last time Dungarvan Enterprise Centre will be hosting this course. So, if you know someone who could benefit from partaking in this course don't let them miss out on this final opportunity. We have already put 70 people through this programme!

For more information on this basic internet computer course contact Dungarvan Enterprise Centre on 058 23598 or email dungarvanec@gmail.com.  

How Good are You at Digital Marketing?

In the latest Digital Marketing Institute blog post they discuss the release of their free tool to measure your Digital Marketing skills.
In 2014, businesses simply need to be online because that is now where their customer base resides.
Did you know:
  • The amount of time adults spend using digital media surpassed the amount of time they spent watching TV in 2013.
  • 77% of the time we spend watching TV we are using another device simultaneously. 
  • The average person now spends one in 12 waking minutes online.
  • The average person checks their Facebook page 14 times a day.
  • 72 hours of content are updated to YouTube every minute.
  • There are more mobile phones in the world than there are toothbrushes.
  • Companies that blog more than about 15 times per month, get 5 times more traffic.
  • The amount of e-mail that that is opened on smartphones and tablets has increased by 80% globally in the last 6 months.
  • The average consumer reads 11 different reviews along the way to completing the purchase.
From these facts, it is obvious to see that businesses that refuse to adapt to digital marketing will be left behind by competitors who choose to engage with consumers online.
Now, the Digital Marketing Institute has created the Digital Diagnostic!
The free Diagnostic will test your digital skills. You can retest yourself as many times as you want and, importantly, can benchmark your progress over time as you become more adept at different marketing skills.

Reinvent Your Career Through Digital Marketing

In the Digital Marketing Institute's latest blog offering, Pierce Ivory, a former participant of the Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing course, talks about how Digital Marketing can reinvent your career.

Prior to participating in the Diploma course, Ivory worked in Production Management in a print company in Dublin. However, as the economic downturn put pressure on the print industry Ivory began to see the need for an online presence.

After upskilling with the Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing, Ivory set up his own business - a Digital Marketing Consultancy, Rivelino Digital! He is now currently undertaking a Masters in Digital Marketing, again through the Digital Marketing Institute.

Here are Ivory's tips for those interested in developing Digital Marketing skills:

  • Educate yourself with as much reading material as possible.
  • Sign up for a Digital Marketing course.
  • Network through Google+ and LinkedIn.
  • Keep up to date with the industry by attending seminars.

With the starting date, September 25, fast approaching for the Professional Diploma in Digital Marketing being hosted in Dungarvan Enterprise Centre, maybe Digital Marketing can propel your career to the next level too?
