STAFF from the Hexham Courant’s commercial team are preparing to host free digital seminars at Hexham Abbey next month.

The seminars are aimed specifically at small to medium businesses who have touched upon digital marketing, but who would like to expand their digital knowledge and cut through the jargon.

Topics covered during the sessions will include: getting your website in order; multi-channel marketing; getting online display right; and working across social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.

Digital specialists will be on hand for anyone who would like to access advice on a one-to-one basis.

The Courant’s advertising manager, Nicola Hill, said: “Every business that attends is entitled to receive a free online health check around their businesses, to shine more light on specific areas of interest.

“We understand that digital marketing can be a bit of a minefield. Our events are aimed at educating and informing the local business community on how to get the best out of their marketing strategy.”

The events will take place at 10.30am and 2pm on Tuesday, February 5. Free tickets can be booked online at
