With over 800 million active users across the globe, Facebook is the most successful social media platform online. Facebook is not just for the young ‘uns. Did you know that one in five 55-64 year olds have a Facebook account?
Is your business missing a trick by not being active on Facebook?
Working in partnership with the Village Emporium, this course will provide the information and skills you need to develop a powerful and lasting Facebook community. Learn ways to develop creative page content and how to turn fans into customers in fun and engaging ways. We will use real life case studies to illustrate the tools used and show how to replicate this success for your brand.
Is it relevant to my business?
The content for this workshop will be focused on “local” business. Lots of the strategies will be showing you how to engage with your local community. Therefore, if you are running a corporate organisation, or perhaps an online only business, then this workshop may not be for you. However, if you supply either products or services to local businesses, then this is a workshop not to be missed.
What will you learn?
This workshop is limited to 15 attendees only.
• An introduction to Facebook and setting your goals and objectives.
• We will cover the basics of how to manage your page, including the art of a status update, scheduling posts, and the do’s and dont’s of Facebook.
• You will walk away with many “aha moments” and an action plan of how to build a community on Facebook.
• We will also talk about external tools and free resources that you can use to create amazing images and videos for your Facebook page (which is easy to do when you know how).
Do I need to have a Facebook page already?
This course is aimed at beginners to intermediate level users of Facebook for business. You will ideally be currently managing a Facebook page for a company/brand but want to achieve more. Please note that this workshop will not talk you through the set up of a new page. You will need to have a Facebook page set up already. If you have not yet got a page for your business, then please visit www.facebook.com/pages to create a basic account.
You will be learning via a mix of slides, discussions and hands-on experimentation (please bring a laptop or iPad / tablet with you on the day). With each workshop you will be given a full-colour workbook which we will work through, free pen, as well as a takeaway squeaky giraffe (all will be revealed at the workshop).
