Key information points

Get the absolute latest on Facebook marketing best practice with this one day training event presented by Marie Page of The Digiterati, a leading Facebook expert and writer of Smart Insights “Smarter Guide to Facebook Marketing”.

With social media platforms, and Facebook in particular, moving at an astonishing rate, the need to keep abreast of changes both from an algorithmic and technical perspective are a constant requirement for agency staff and in-house Facebook Page admin managers. What was previously the perfect acquisition and engagement piece is now considered outdated or gauche and may even be penalised by the ever evolving Edgerank algorithm.

With Facebook evolving as a “pay to play” platform with organic reach at an all time low for many brands, explore how a little marketing budget can go a long way in extending reach and acquiring new fans and customers. We will show you how to unlock the secrets of the challenging Power Editor advertising platform.
