It's FREE! Let us be your resource to the latest in online technology. Ask a question, discover best practises, and adapt what you learn to fit your unique tourism business. Call or email anytime. Here is an idea of the types of questions people are asking...

  • "Why does it say my Twiter post is too long?"
  • "How do I use Facebook Live?"
  • "What is Instagram?"
  • "Where can I find the best program for email marketing?"

Don't waste your valuable time researching a topic when we can do it for you!

Have an idea for a topic you'd like to see covered? Let us know!

mentoring icon Mentoring (Our most popular option!)

Aside from advice, webinars, and workshops, TIANB offers 1-on-1 personalised training sessions on technology-related issues. Our Technology Resource Coordinator comes directly to you, at your place of business, sits with you 1-on-1, and works through the topics you feel are most important.

Meetings are customised to meet your specific business needs, at your individual learning level. You'll also receive a detailed written assessment of your existing website and social media platforms with recommendations for improvement.

How affordable is it? Our 1/2 day personalised 1-on-1 mentoring service is available for only $150 (less for TIANB members).

Topics we might cover include:

  • Online marketing strategy.
  • A professional assessment of your website.
  • Improving your social media marketing. (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc.)
  • Email marketing.
  • Leveraging online resources such as Trip Advisor.
  • Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).
  • Getting started with a website, including finding and working with a designer.
  • Working with WordPress or Joomla. (These are software programs that allow you to update your own website. They're very useful. Unfortunately we've seen many instances throughout NB where operators have this setup for them, but no one shows them how to use it! People are then scared they might break the website, so they don't do anything with it.)
  • Any other technology / online resource you can think of.

You decide what topics we should work through. We're pretty flexible. If we plan to discuss your website, but then you want to talk social media when we arrive, that's fine.

We offer the assistance you need to evolve and adapt online strategies and tactics to better serve your valued customers. Call to book your space today!

Feel overwhelmed with technology?

Relax. We offer our services at basic, intermediate, and advanced levels. No matter what the extent of your technology know-how, you will be comfortable learning with us.

Tourism Technology provides tourism operators with the skills, knowledge and expertise to take advantage of current online tools and resources. Let us encourage and enable you to become more innovative in your online marketing, and improve your ability to reach and respond to existing and future customers.

Learn. Equip. Grow.
Reach your potential. Call today!

Webinars & Workshops

Mentoring session comments...

One on one discussion, personalized to what my business needs are. Jason had a booklet prepared for me with ideas and areas for me to work on that he feels will be beneficial to me. It was relaxed informative and I had the opportunity to ask questions as the came up. I left our meeting feeling comfortable for the information I received and confident that I can maintain and improve on the areas we addressed.

I would highly recommend this training to all my colleagues!!

Holiday Inn Express & Suites - Fredericton, NB
I felt the steps were explained clearly, easy to follow instructions and I liked the fact that Jason took the time to ensure I knew how everything worked.

Washademoak Golf Club - Codys, NB
Jason knows FB, websites, and social media, and how to help you grow your business. [The session] was here, in my own space...my own computer.

This menotoring session by the instructor Jason was something I really needed for my business. For a long time I was looking for somebody that can help me with the many questions I have. This one was perfect for me. Thank you again Jason!

Gîte l'Étoile du Havre B&B Inc. - Bathurst
A great introduction to all of the tools available to me; inspired me to learn more and start applying them on a regular basis.

This mentoring session was excellent. Jason was very helpful in answering any questions I had and offering solutions for my website and social media (Facebook), improvements that will help my B&B. The analysis of my website was very helpful and the training session gave me a plan for improving my website and social media activities. Thank you.

Blair House Heritage Breakfast Inn - St. Stephen, NB
What I liked best about the training was the one-on-one opportunity to discuss specific needs. Great insight into the tools that can help support and grow our business. Thank you!

Sky Zone Moncton
The highly technical issues were done and I did not need to spend 3 days figuring it out. There just wasn't enough time since we could have kept going! :-) I would recommend this training to anyone, independent of knowledge since the trainer is highly adaptable.

lecamping.ca - Petit Rocher, NB
One on one. Knowledgeable. I was extremely satisfied overall. A very precious resource both for new and existing business wanting to optimize their internet advertizing.
