Tourism and hospitality businesses in Mid Wales are being given a chance to discover how to make their website perform better to increase sales and profits.
‘Getting more sales from your website’ is the theme of a training course being organised by Tourism Growth in partnership with MWT Cymru at the Metropole Hotel, Llandrindod Wells on October 4 from 10.30am to 4.30pm.
It’s the second training course run by the partnership, which held a successful inaugural course on the topic ‘Boostin your sales on social media’ at Aberystwyth University in Junes.

Courses, which are held in Wales and at other locations including Bristol, Bath and Cheltenham, are available to MWT Cymru members at a preferential 30 per cent discount.
The Llandrindod Wells course is aimed at tourism, hospitality and leisure businesses who may be thinking of updating their website or are frustrated that their current site isn’t giving them the brand presence or direct bookings that they desire.
The course costs £89 plus vat for MWT Cymru members, which is a saving of £40 plus vat on the normal price. Non-members will be charge £129 plus vat.

They are run by tourism sector specialists who have a breadth of experience, knowledge and best practice from working with tourism employers – especially smaller independent businesses – all around the UK.
“Tourism Growth’s courses fit perfectly with our aims and objectives at MWT Cymru: supporting our members to take advantage of every opportunity to market their businesses more effectively to a wider audience – particularly online – and helping them to build reputation, increase profits and enhance the overall quality and attractiveness of Wales as a great destination.”
