News: Preview Course on Social Media Marketing

Posted on 25th May 2016

If you’ve been using social media marketing for a while, have you noticed that you’re not getting the response and interest that you used to?

Or perhaps you are relatively new to social media marketing, and trying to work out the best way to tackle it.

The truth is – all the main platforms (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram) have moved strongly towards being ‘paid-for’ media – just in the same way that you would have to pay to advertise in a local newspaper, on the radio or as a bill-board.

With probably less than 10% of your social media posts actually reaching your followers, should you invest in the paid-for options on social media?

How does it work? Does it produce results and is it value for money? What about the different options and how do you decide which audiences to reach? How will you see the results and what does ‘good’ look like?

If you want the answers to these questions or you are interested in exploring whether you should use paid social media marketing to promote your business – join us on our breakfast business booster session on 24th June.

"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."

Mims Davies MP, Member of Parliament for Mid Sussex

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
