How to Adapt and Manage Your Facebook Page to Attract More Business

This 4-hour workshop is taking place over four consecutive days on 11th-14th May, 11.30am-12.30pm.

  • The workshop is aimed at trading businesses who have an existing Facebook page but are struggling to get engagement on posts, are not achieving business leads, or want to use Facebook more effectively as a digital marketing tool. It will equip you with the skills required to update and manage your Facebook page and will cover content strategy to increase engagement, rank higher on Facebook and attract more business. Throughout the sessions, you will be adapting your page to appeal to your target client group and learning how to interact with potential clients, building rapport and generate positive feedback.
  • Facebook business pages have been through some significant changes in the last two years, most notably a reduction in business page visibility if posting the wrong type of content. You will be shown how to embrace this, continue to generate leads and increase engagement on posts with some very simple steps.

The workshop will cover:

      • Defining your target audience
      • Reviewing the Facebook page to appeal to your ideal client
      • Settings and tools to help improve visibility and rankings on Facebook
      • How to use groups to promote Facebook pages and products/services
      • Creating events and services on the Facebook page
      • Content planning, structure and scheduling
      • Managing customer relationships, building trust and growing your followers

By the end of the week you will have an updated Facebook page that will appeal to your ideal client, rank high in the Facebook searches and a clear understanding of how to create engagement with your potential customers.

To gain the most value from this workshop, delegates are expected to already have a good understanding of their value proposition, target market and ideal customers. If you need support with this, please contact your existing Business Development Manager or the team bgp_team@chester.ac.uk. Sessions will be interactive and participant engagement will be encouraged throughout.

Delegates must be an admin on their Facebook business page.
