Paid Social Training

Paid social media training courses

Next course from 14 - 18 May 2018

Social media advertising is cost effective, highly targeted and adaptable to any business objective. Social media advertising provides organisations the chance to reach, engage and convert new customers like never before.

But with ever changing ad formats, algorithm updates and technological advances, it can be a challenge to develop a successful social media advertising campaign that works for your business.

This in-depth paid social media training course will focus on the planning and implementation of ad campaigns across a range of social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and YouTube.

Since Facebook announced plans to de-prioritise commercial organic posts, they are unlikely to reduce the amount of sponsored or promoted posts.  Businesses more than ever before will need to deploy Facebook advertising.

You will learn from Anicca Digital's leading social media specialists. Their daily experience in planning and implementing social media campaigns will ensure you’ll learn up-to-date techniques and innovations. Together with tried and tested tips for a range of budgets and business sectors.
