ACCOMMODATION providers can sign up for free sessions in digital marketing with the Daily Echo.

A special seminar for independent hoteliers and bed and breakfast operators is being held on Tuesday, October 16, 3pm, at the Miramar Hotel in Bournemouth.

It is one of four events being held by Daily Echo publisher Newsquest over two days.

The events offer a guide to marketing a business online.

Topics to be covered will include: How the marketing landscape has changed; setting realistic marketing objectives; multi-channel marketing; getting online display right; and social media – is it right for your business?

Digital specialists will be on hand for those who want a one-to-one conversation, but businesses are assured it will not be a sales environment – just an opportunity to get free advice and information.

Every business attending can get a free online “health check” of their organisation.

To book for the hotel industry, visit and be sure to select 3pm as the time of the event.

The earlier session that day, at 9.30am, is for any businesses which are keen to expand their digital knowledge, and which may not have a digital or marketing expert in the business.

On Wednesday, two seminars will offer advice for businesses which already have a marketing expert in the organisation, or who are already spending on digital marketing. Tickets for those events are at
