A series of fully funded masterclasses on social and digital media and marketing are being held in Seaham.

Business owner Michelle Rose, who runs Custard and Bear, is delivering the masterclasses as part of an NBSL programme of support for SMEs in the region.

The courses are being held at East Durham Business Service’s Novus Business Centre at Spectrum Business Park on Tuesday, November 6, and Tuesday, November 13.

The sessions starts at 9.30am and run until 5pm and spaces are limited.

Michelle said: “I am over the moon to be delivering regular training for NBSL, which will help people get to grips with social media and marketing.”

The two-day courses of fully funded training are on:

  • Starting to Use Digital Marketing to Grow your Business (i.e. how to use email lists, your blog, SEO etc).

Michelle added: “If you’re a new(ish) business or a more established business who has yet to get to grips with their online marketing, or simply needs some reassurance that you’re doing okay with it, then my masterclasses will be perfect for you.

“If you don’t know me then please know that I don’t bite and on my training we always have cake. By the end of your masterclass you’ll come away with new skills, ideas, business pals and the confidence to put an online marketing plan into place.”

On both masterclasses lunch is provided. A laptop is required and the booking deadline is October 28.
