Upcoming and online – How to Use Facebook as an Effective Sales Tool

More than 800 million people now use Facebook on a regular basis. That is a colossal market for advertisers to tap into and it is no wonder that so many companies are now focusing on social media outlets like this for much of their online campaigning. This event begins with a brief overview of the history of social media before explaining why ‘Content is King’ and how businesses can find and connect with their audiences online. It also provides some very useful information about Facebook’s personal and fan pages and its pay-per-click feature, which can help companies improve their conversion rates by a considerable margin.

This 1 hour 30 minute event is online and takes place on August 8, 2013 at 5pm Greenwich Mean Time. To attend, you just need to become a Sales Pro Source Silver Member.
