Practical workshop to discover how to create, manage and monitor effective, results-driven marketing campaigns on Facebook.

Moving on from exploring the power of creative organic content in Part 1, we will look at the best way to boost your social media presence using paid posts on Facebook.

We will explore the different options available and how to target the right demographics with creative and engaging adverts and sponsored posts.

This part of the course is much more practical and you will have the opportunity to create your own online advertising campaigns (payment to Facebook will be required to launch them, although this is not required to participate in the course).

We will also look at how to monitor your campaigns to get the best return on your investment.
