What Our Students Are Saying
Thank you for a very informative course. Length of the course was perfect and provided us with enough cheat sheets, hints, templates and insights to take our own companies to the next level in Digital Marketing. Hugh McCabe was very knowledgeable and shared his knowledge freely with us which was great. Fun, interactive class and I learnt a lot!
The course is very informative and Hugh McCabe is very helpful and passionate about his work. The training course will add a vast amount of value to my business and practice. It will also give me the competitive edge. The technological changes render all old technology obsolete, so digital marketing is a course that every marketer should equip themselves with. Thank you Hugh McCabe and Digital Business Academy!
I enjoyed the course because it ‘demystified’ the processes behind digital marketing. We see Google Ads, Facebook ads etc. on a daily basis and this course allowed me to see how it works for myself, and how to use it without contacting an outside agency.
