Social Media Workshops – update from events

Facebook – 22 October
Thursday 22nd October saw the final of NFBP’s four social media workshops, this time focussing on Facebook for businesses.

The workshop led by Brodie McIntosh from the Digital Marketing Team at Intergage gave attendees food for thought on ensuring Facebook is the correct social media platform to promote their business and reach intended target audiences.

Brodie went on to explain that content planning is key and to identify clear goals that your business can measure such as driving traffic back to your website which can be monitored through Google Analytics and Facebook Insights. The presentation also gave everyone tips and tricks to ensure business profile information is maximised.
