Want to learn more about the world of digital marketing and social media? Then this intensive training course is for you


Maryrose Lyons is a veteran digital marketer, social media specialist and driver of leads for businesses who want to grow. Listed in the top 1% of Social Media Marketers on LinkedIn, she was also named one of the Top 50 Most Influential Marketers in Ireland.

She set up her business, Brightspark Consulting, in 2003 offering search and content services. Now the company offers a wide range of digital marketing and social media services, with Maryrose herself speaking and mentoring at various industry events.

Blended social media training

Now you can learn how to navigate social media like a pro with Brightspark’s Blended Learning Social Media Training Course. The course is a mix of both online and in-person learning. The 13 online modules contain high-quality videos and instructional downloads, while the in-person workshops in both Dublin and Athlone are spread over three months with Maryrose starting on February 26.

The first of the workshops will focus on baseline metrics, switching to business accounts and devising social personas and strategy. The second session will be looking at the types of content available, paid social, setting budgets, and making videos and apps. The third will be a deep-dive into bots and Whatsapp. You will learn how to make your own bot and a Whatsapp marketing campaign.

Places are limited with only 12 available for this run, ensuring a personal learning experience. The next course will not be taking place until the autumn.
