About this Event

The Cheshire and Warrington Business Growth Programme is hosting a variety of online workshops, delivered by our expert Delivery Partners. You must be an eligible SME registered on the programme to attend, please check eligibility criteria below, or contact us if you want to discuss.

Create a Facebook Group for Your Business

This session will take place from 11am-12pm over 4 days: Tuesday 21st, Wednesday 22nd, Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th April.

Becs Bate (Social Media Executive) is hosting a workshop that will take you through step-by-step how to create a Facebook group for your business.

Facebook groups are community forums, where people interact and share a common interest. They are great for businesses as you can build a highly engaged community of individuals who are interested in your sector and more importantly may be interested in the products and services you have to offer. The content you post in your group with have much higher visibility than posts on your Facebook page – providing you manage it in the right way.

This is a small workshop designed to help you grow your business through Facebook groups (maximum 10 people, so book early!)

Whether you’re a complete novice or a seasoned digital socialiser, Becs can help you review your marketing approach to increase visibility and engagement to help grow your business.

This workshop will show you how to create and embrace Facebook groups to help you generate leads and increase engagement.

Groups are a great way of keeping in contact with your existing and potential customers during this unprecedented time of isolation.
