“I was not sure if I would be able to implement what I had learned using the computer mainly because I am not computer literate – limited skills in using the computer. But I received the personalized attention I needed – thanks to Sumari for being very patient, explaining perhaps many a time over and over again.

What stood out to me was the fact that it was a small group and everyone had a chance to voice their opinions, share their knowledge and discuss issues pertaining to the tourism industry.

  • I love that I now have an Online Marketing Workbook to refer to all the time,
  • I  learned about resources I never heard of to assist with marketing etc.
  • I now understand what should be on a website and why my website isn’t generating the traffic it should.

This workshop is perfect for those who need help, like me, or those just requiring updated information regarding the ever-changing Online marketing in the industry.” Joanne Dippenaar

“Your Establishment has a unique story that only you can tell. I want to show you how to share that story with the world…

And in doing so get the attention of those adventures travelers that want to make your journey part of theirs.” – Sumari van Dyk

“I was a little weary of Instagram when first looking at signing up for the workshop – but it all ran very smoothly. I learned about who my target market group is – how to take charge of my own website – the importance of certain keywords and how they can make the world of difference!

What stood out for me was realizing that there is so much more that can be added to websites to make it easier for guests. I’d absolutely recommend the workshop for anyone who wants to get the most out of their online marketing.

Only thing I would like to add is: – Just let me know when the next one is! 😁” Nikki Stagg
