Supercharging Your Facebook Marketing
Ron Cates – Constant Contact
It’s no secret that Facebook has become a huge part of how people interact, share ideas and recommendations, and interact with brands. But too many businesses aren’t seeing results from their Facebook marketing efforts because they are posting content without a plan for turning “fans” into customers and advocates. In this seminar, you’ll learn why Facebook is important to your business, the difference between posting and marketing, and ten tips to drive more “likes,” more “shares,” and more business.
The 7-Step Social Media Marketing Strategy
Luke Brynley-Jones – Our Social Times
I’ll be kicking of each seminar by setting out how to create a social media marketing strategy in 7 simple steps. I’ll highlight all the key questions you need to ask: Where are your customers? Which social media platforms should you focus on? Which 3rd party tools and applications do you need? Do you have the required skills? How should you manage your time? And how can you measure the results of your activities?
