What Others are Saying about Digital Footprint 2019

 “I am really excited that Northumberland Tourism is supporting a digital marketing assessment of Westben and other businesses. Digital marketing is key to Westben’s marketing plan, but it is challenging to keep up with all the ever-changing elements and platforms of the digital world. I know the assessment will be extremely informative and helpful in expanding Westben’s audience reach. Attracting new visitors to Westben is key for sustainability.”
- Donna Bennett, Advancement & Marketing Director, Westben Centre for Connection & Creativity 

“Digital marketing is a critical communication tool for any business. Almost everyone uses the internet or social media to search for goods and services so it is imperative that I have an online presence for my B&B/Farm Stay/Retreat & Wedding Venue business. I've tried to navigate through social media and my own website. I'm thrilled about being a part of the Digital Footprint project. Receiving professional advice on how I can improve my online presence will be invaluable!"
