Tourism NI recently delivered a pilot Sales & Marketing Skills programme specifically designed for small to medium sized tourism businesses who want to gain a basic understanding of the principles and practice of sales & marketing.  This course offered a grounding in theory as well as the opportunity to directly apply all aspects to your business.  The output of this course was to provide evidence of significant progress towards a Sales & Marketing Plan.  The course was produced and facilitated by Kate Taylor, Taylored Training.

Sales & Marketing are vitally important skills for tourism businesses, as they allow you to grow existing markets more profitably and engage with new potential markets… while investing the right time & resources in key result areas.  Marketing provides you with the skills to increase brand awareness, develop your target market, generate new leads & enquiries through targeted online & offline marketing activity. Sales is a fundamental to the success in any tourism business and this course focusses on developing your personal selling techniques which can be immediately applied to your current role.
