Martin Murtagh - Digital | Social | Training | Events

MEET MARTIN ► I’m a Freelance Digital Marketing Consultant with twenty years’ experience in entrepreneurship and over a decade’s experience providing practical digital marketing and training to businesses of all sizes.

WHAT I DO FOR BUSINESSES ► I work on a contract basis for businesses requiring an experienced Digital Marketer to co-ordinate implementation of their digital marketing and social media activities, often as an alternative to them hiring a full-time resource in-house.

MY SERVICES ► I provide strategic digital marketing support, bespoke social media management, research and audits, content creation and creative campaign advice and best practice social media training.

SOCIAL MEDIA TRAINING ► I run regular social media workshops aimed at business owners, destination and visitor economy organisations, social enterprises, and SME support groups. These are practical hands-on sessions and designed so that you will learn everything from the basic to advanced methods.

TOURISM 2.0 ► Effective uses of social media continues to be the mainstay of my work with businesses, but I also provide Tourism 2.0 training as it is becoming a major challenge among tourism businesses of all sizes, and my goal is to simplify and demystify this as much as possible.

EVENTS ► I have organised events in some capacity since 1998. These are extremely diverse from music festivals and business conferences to ghost walks and dark tourism events. In 2015, I was awarded "Best Tourism" at the Greater Newry Area Business Awards for my business Newry City Tours.

EDUCATION ► I have a Masters degree in Digital Media Communication from Ulster University. The course has given me greater knowledge on how to leverage digital media technologies and platforms to achieve competitive advantage.
