In addition to socialising online with your friends, Facebook can be a very effective vehicle to keep in regular contact with your business’s customers or members of your community group.
You can use your Facebook page to promote products and events, attract a new clientele and build relationships and goodwill with your existing customer or membership base.
If you are you interested in starting a Facebook Page for your business or community group, this free session will teach you the steps involved in creating a Facebook page and how to market to your audience.
Perhaps you have questions you want answered such as:
¨ Can I assign someone else to help manage my page?
¨ What is the best strategy to grow my page?
¨ Should I pay Facebook to advertise my business or community group?
