Lights, Camera, Action…Play!

We previously told you about our plans to create more digital content for SocialMedia.ie. Today is your lucky day because the wait is finally over.  We filmed the digital video on Tuesday the 30th of September at our Capel Street offices. Liane Costello directed this digital video, with the help of Sam Conor on camera and Ellen Murphy on sound, and Kieran Duffy completed the digital video with his design work.  Conor Lynch stars in the video along with the rest of the SocialMedia.ie and connector.TV team.  We had a lot of fun filming this video so we hope you have as much fun watching it!

SocialMedia.ie and DMI provide Social Media Training to ITAA

Conor Lynch and Cian Corbett of SocialMedia.ie had the pleasure of conducting training sessions with the ITAA on behalf of the DMI yesterday. The Irish Travel Agents Association are embracing Social Media as a way of engaging with their customer base and growing their business.

Social Media is proving to be the perfect medium for Travel Agents as holiday makers love sharing their holiday photos through Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and Blogs. More importantly, Social Media channels are a huge source of information for customers to research  a holiday destination and holiday provider.

We look forward working with the ITAA again the near future.
