In-Depth Facebook Workshop
Mon 15 August 9:00am - 4:00pm
Training Room, Business South Inc, Level 3, 442 Moray Place, Dunedin
Learn how you can leverage Facebook as an effective marketing tool for your business or organisation in this practical training.
This will be thorough, informative and enjoyable - a mixture of theory, strategy, practical exercises, tips and ideas, creative discussions and Q&As.

This workshop-style training is designed to empower the business owner/manager/social media manager to effectively manage/oversee their own Facebook marketing to better connect with their target markets, critical in this COVID-19 period and beyond.
This hands-on workshop includes everything you need to know to improve and optimise your organic Facebook efforts. This is aimed at marketers looking for actionable and impactful ways to use this popular social network to grow their business.

Each time this training is run, the content is adjusted so that relevant examples from the industries that are represented, are used.
Along with this, an integral part of the workshop will involve the presenter conducting a mini audit of participants’ Facebook Pages prior to the training and relevant examples from their Pages will be discussed with the group. Participants are welcome to submit Facebook questions prior to the workshop to be answered during the training.
Bring your laptop so you can access your Facebook page as we will be diving into your settings, information and insights – for adjustments and to see what is and what isn’t working.

Whether you are a sole trader, small business owner or in-house digital marketer at a larger organisation, if you want to improve your understanding of how Facebook works, find out more about the tools/features Facebook offers and learn key digital marketing principles, this comprehensive, practical Facebook Training is for you. It is packed with valuable information and tactics you will be able to implement immediately into your Facebook marketing.
Note: course is aimed at those who are already active on Facebook. It is not designed for complete beginners.

"The Facebook Training by Philippa at Crea8ive was fantastic. Philippa was great at explaining how Facebook functions and how we use these functions in a manner that was easily understood. It was so interactive and I love how she actually used our own businesses to show examples in such a constructive way which means the take home actions is not just relatable but completely actionable. Thanks for the fun training which went way too fast!"
