How to run Facebook Advertising Campaigns






There are two reasons why businesses need to understand how to advertise on Facebook;


  1. On average only 10% of followers now see posts from a page
  2. Facebook ads are a very effective and affordable way of getting into anyone’s newsfeed to tell them about your products or offer, simply by spending a small amount of money e.g. for €5-€10 you can get your message out to thousands of potential customers. 


This Facebook advertising course goes way beyond “how to boost a post” and shows you how to run ad campaigns using the Ads Manager tool.

This is an intermediate level course which includes some advanced techniques.


This is suitable for you if you already understand how to use Facebook and you are using a Facebook business page for marketing.
