Course Overview

SUNSHINE COAST - Facebook Advertising Masterclass


Full day session: 9:00am - 4:30pm 


Have you ever been logged into Facebook, minding your own business and noticed a series of ads featuring down the right hand side and wondered where these come from? Have you noticed advertised posts popping up on your newsfeed? 

Have you noticed that often the ads are relevant to you because of your gender, age, location or interests?

There is now a plethora of advertising options available on many of the leading social networks. This is some of the most targeted marketing that has ever been made available to businesses and it’s time you started leveraging it!
