Short Courses and Free Tools for Marketers
As part of Property Republic’s aim to drive creativity and growth among our team members, we’ve implemented an “innovation hour” each week.
The idea is to set aside time to learn something new or develop innovative initiatives outside of our business-as-usual tasks. This gives us the opportunity to sharpen our skills and knowledge as marketers – an important consideration in the fast-evolving digital marketing world. We also consider it extremely important to engage in bite-sized training or education opportunities where possible. We’ve gathered some of our favourite short courses and free tools that we love to use to further our skills.
