Facebook has been in the news quite a lot recently, back in January 2018 they announced that they were removing most business posts from users’ news feeds, and ever since, there has been in the media limelight for a range of issues including privacy and data breaches that has given their brand a bad reputation.

So, what does this all mean to businesses that rely on Facebook for brand awareness, free traffic and generation of leads and sales?

In order to make sense of all this, we are holding a free 90-minute seminar where our paid social media expert, Ann Stanley, will share tips on how to make your Facebook advertising stand out. In addition to outlining all the different ad types (or “Ad objectives”), she will also explain how the targeting options work and any changes that have occurred because of Facebook’s response to the issues they have faced.

The topics covered will be of particular interest to those who have previously been reliant on Facebook for traffic or would like to use Facebook advertising to drive awareness, traffic and conversions (sales or leads).

Facebook advertising works just as well for SMEs who are B2B as for B2C as you can target individuals by job title or interests. Explained using simple terminology, the seminar will educate and inform delegates on how to make the right ad choices to replace and increase their traffic from Facebook.

The seminar will cover:

  • The growth of social advertising
  • Setting a marketing objective for your campaign
  • The 11 different types of ad options on Facebook, including tips on choosing the right ad type
  • The different targeting options; new audience, custom audience or lookalike audiences
  • Retargeting/Remarketing to previous visitors to your website
  • Your budget options, bidding strategy & campaign scheduling
