Hashtag Marketing As part of my traineeship I built hashtag directories for both WatsonsMarketing.com and Trainer Christine’s client: the River to Lough festival. To find hashtags that should be used on instagram posts I researched other instagram pages and learned about tools: hashtagify.me and Tagboard. Influencer Marketing To deliver content marketing in an organised way I created an influencer directory to list all the tags of the funders, sponsors and other stakeholders involved in the River to Lough festival – at times these tags differed from instagram to twitter and to facebook. The English Language Five weeks in an English speaking country has taught me some local words such as ‘baltic’ but my written English is now better and I am a bit more confident with my spoken English – I am quite timid when conversing in English but I was able to make friends with my colleagues and even teach them a few Italian words – Buon appetito and perfetto. I was also conscious to try and avoid speaking Italian in front of my colleagues for risk of causing paranoia and offense. My cultural tripsView this post on Instagram

Thanks to Christine and thanks to my Erasmus project I could discover Belfast and wider Northern Ireland. I visited Belfast City hall, Ulster Museum, Botanic Gardens, Giant’s causeway, The Big Fish, St George’s Market, Lough Neagh, Parliament Buildings, Stormont and I loved exploring all these places. I hope to return to visit these beautiful places with my family in the future.Christine Watson says that this isn’t a problem and to celebrate all the many that I did manage to complete in my five weeks.
