If you’ve just attended Trib U training on how to use Facebook for business you might want to refresh your memory as you build your page by checking out Facebook’s Free Marketing Bootcamp, which started this week and is running for the next two weeks.
Facebook’s already hosted two live streaming sessions and they’ll be holding four more, two for each of the next two weeks. So far, the Live Stream has been of mixed quality, so it’s a good thing you can pop in and watch the sessions at any time once they are posted. If you are signed up for the Bootcamp, you’ll get a special offer for Facebook ads as well as supporting materials, including one checklist each week. The checklist consists of action items to implement to get your page started. If you drive 100 fans to your business page by Nov. 30, you can win $100 in free Facebook ads.
If you are curious about the benefits of a specially designed branded page, how to handle B-to-B marketing in Facebook, or the best way to market via various industry sectors, the bootcamp might be worth a watch. I also expect that Facebook’s thorough and engaging global staff will be explaining many of the new Facebook features. We’ve seen lots of changes in the past few months.
The best part of the sessions so far has been the Q&A session at the end. Facebookers usually direct you toward many types of useful resources that already exist on Facebook, such as the Facebook Marketing Page, Facebook for Business, Facebook Ads Marketing and Facebook Manage Your Ads.
