Victoria Bond, Director at Space HR, recently completed our Level 2 Digital Promotion for Business qualification. After setting up Space HR this year, Victoria wanted to expand on her knowledge to enable her to market the business to the right audience.
With over 15 years experience in high growth and ambitious businesses, Victoria established Space HR to build a new style of employee engagement.
Having seen disengaging employee surveys and poorly executed action plans in other businesses, Victoria saw the opportunity to build something different and make a real impact with an action focused approach.
Level 2 Digital Promotion for Business
The B2W Group provides a selection of digital and IT based distance learning qualifications. This includes our Level 2 Digital Promotion for Business course. This fully funded course focuses on promoting your business within the digital age. It teaches online techniques such as SEO and social media for business.
We recently caught up with Victoria to find out more about her experience on the Digital Promotion for Business qualification.
What made you want to take part in this course?
I set up Space HR in September 2020 and was looking for the skills I needed to market myself and my business. This course popped up on my social media. When I read some more, it looked like it would give me the overview I needed to make a good start.
What did you enjoy most about this course?
I loved the learning process itself. The tasks set give you specific aspects of research to build on the learning in the platform. I was able to apply it to my own business each module, so it was practical and helped move me forward. My tutor would give me feedback on what I’d submitted and always gave me other things to think about, to grow my knowledge.
What new skills and knowledge have you learned?
How in-depth and connected a digital marketing strategy should be. Done well, it takes time, knowledge, focus and research to create a plan that will work for the business. During the course I really appreciated the sharing of credible sources. I knew where to look to build up my knowledge.
Did you find that the course met your expectations?
Yes, it was much more in-depth than the very practical / tactical course than I expected. I enjoyed it much more and got much more out of it.
Did you find the course was challenging enough?
Yes! It took me a couple of attempts, feedback and guidance from my tutor for me to find the right “level” that I should be working at for this course. I had to do a couple of resubmissions for early modules. Once I’d cracked it, with the guidance from my tutor, I was able to pass each module first time.
How has this course helped you progress in the workplace?
As I have my own business, it’s helped me to establish a well-thought out digital marketing plan. I will be able to use this going forward.
Would you recommend us to others? If so, why?
Yes, absolutely. I think for business owners like myself, or those that are maybe early career / stand alone in a marketing role – the course is great learning. It’s especially valuable to have a tutor when you need it. They give you feedback on your work, which you wouldn’t get from just doing a standard online course.
