  FacebookWorkshop: Facebook for Business
Facebook, the #1 social networking site, began in 2004 and currently has 1.3 billion worldwide users - 100 million active in the USA. So, it makes sense to have your business there, however, no one wants to be sold to on Facebook, so how can you effectively use Facebook to market your business?

In this workshop we will have you a closer look at Facebook and the benefits of using it to grow your business. You will learn how other organizations are marketing on Facebook, some dos and don'ts of Facebook marketing, as well as tips on how to tell if your social media activity on Facebook is working! When you leave this workshop you will know the steps to take to develop engaging content!
