Are you utilizing all of the features on your brand’s Facebook page? Have you enlisted 3rd party apps? Do you know how to customize images to make your page look fabulous? Have I lost you?

There’s a lot to Facebook Brand Pages, and it’s not always easy to pay attention to all of the changes plus continue to keep up with how it all works. It’s hard enough to make sure you’re representing your brand by posting consistently and running your business! Who has time to learn how everything works on there?

This two hour lecture/class will break down how Facebook Page features work and how to utilize them.

What we’ll cover:

  • Customizing your page
  • Utilizing Timeline images – Featuring, highlighting, and sizing images
  • Admin Panel brief walkthrough*
  • Integration: Apps, eCommerce, newsletter
  • Posting – the right way and the wrong way*

You’ll walk away with:

  • A Photoshop template to create your cover image
  • Social media buttons .pngs to utilize
  • A list of links, with tips and pointers to keep what we learned in class fresh in your noggin.
  • A better understanding of how to trick out your page and maximize your hard work.

The floor will also be open as we go for questions, thoughts, etc.

Who will benefit from this class: small boutiques/online shops, cottage industries, freelancers, consultants, bloggers, artists and creatives.

*Please note: Because we’ll have so much to cover, we won’t delve into how to read your metrics or content strategy. This class is specifically about utilizing Facebook’s features to customize your page.
