    Why is the entire economy now focusing on Digital Advertising?

    Digital advertising has now allowed businesses to reach out to consumers at a much lower cost compared to traditional advertising and lowered the barrier of entry to advertising. The ease of tapping onto digital marketing channels such as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and even the world’s largest search engine Google, is a game changer for SMEs who are now able to compete on the same landscape as the bigger players. With social media and Google being the prevalent sources of information and entertainment, it becomes essential for both businesses and individuals to acquire the skills to maximise outreach and sales through these channels.

Advertising on these platforms allows businesses to reach to their target audiences at the exact moment when they are ready to consume content presented to them.
    With the social media advertising skills acquired through our programme, businesses will be able to create eye-catching content that will gain 375,000 impressions with just a $1,000 advertising spend in 30 days!

      I definitely have a better grasp of how to improve Facebook and Instagram Ads now that the training is over. Mo, the trainer, is really helpful and capable of responding to my inquiries. I may gain from the practical approach. The venue was very easy to go to because a free shuttle was offered. It improves the experience of both traveling and attending the course. I'm also going to the LinkedIn and TikTok classes!
