Event Description

If you missed Social Media Week, here’s your chance to take part in one of the best sessions from the March conference. Join us Thursday, April 27 at Atlassian, enjoy breakfast on us, and take part in this raved-about workshop!

There are over 1 billion people checking Facebook daily and if you are not currently advertising, you’re missing out on the ability to reach the ones that will love your product or service. This class will teach you some of the insider secrets about the new Facebook ad platform and how to target your ads to be shown to the people most interested in your business.

Topics covered will include creating ads, targeting ads, setting up custom audiences, retargeting, the power editor and best practices for getting the best return on your ad spend. Q&A session will be included at the end so participants can ask any questions related to their business.

This class is ideal for business owners, marketing professionals, growth hackers, current and future founders of start-ups.
