Are you interested in using Facebook to promote your business?

Do you currently have a Facebook presence,
but feel that you’re not using the platform effectively?

In this hands-on class, we’ll look at real examples of Facebook fan pages that are successful and those that are not. We will create a social media strategy for your business and learn best practices for creating posts, engaging with your customers, monitoring your brand, and making sense of metrics. We’ll also take a quick look into Facebook Ads and see if they are a useful place to reach your target market.

Students who bring laptops will be able to participate in real time, but they are not necessary. If you decide to bring a laptop, please see instructions in the right side bar of this page - ADVANCE set up is required. 



If you are a Professional Nonprofit Management Certificate Program participant, these class hours are applicable to your certificate. To learn more about PNMCP, see information in the right sidebar of this page.
