Facebook for Business Workshop

With over 800 million active users across the globe, Facebook is the most successful social media platform online. There are an astonishing 2 million users in Ireland (half the population!) and 54% of active users are aged 18-34.  And it’s not just for the young ‘uns, one in five 55-64 year olds have a Facebook account.  

With all of these switched on potential customers out there, can your brand afford not to engage with them on a daily basis?  

This course will provide the information and skills you need to develop a powerful and lasting Facebook community.  Learn ways to develop creative page content and how to turn fans into customers in fun and engaging ways.  We will use real life case studies to illustrate the tools used and show how to replicate this success for your brand.

"I would highly recommend this workshop. The course content was most informative and covered far more than I expected in such a short space of time. Glen who presented the workshop was excellent and had lots of time for questions and answers and explained everything in depth until the person who asked the question understood fully instead of being dismissed. I look forward to attending future social media workshops held by Dara Creative."
