Attend the FSB Business Masterclass: Boost your business with Facebook
Hosted by FSB Sussex 

Thursday 20 June, 10am-12noon – Holiday Inn Brighton Seafront, Kings Road, Brighton BN1 2JF

FSB is teaming up with Facebook to tour the country offering training sessions in Facebook and Instagram to small businesses so you can develop the skills and confidence you need to take your business to the next level. Book your place here.

 

Cost: £10 for FSB members; £15 for non-members.

 

Want to boost your business’ online presence? Keen to gain valuable skills to help reach new clients and customers? We found that almost a quarter of small business owners believe a lack of basic digital skills amongst them and their staff is holding them back from boosting their digital and online presence. Having a strong online presence is key to productivity and reaching new customers and clients.

 

According to Facebook, 45% of small businesses who use the social media platform in the UK say they have increased sales because of it and 78% say it has helped attract customers. Join us to take your online presence to the next level and develop your business’ Facebook and Instagram strategy.

 

You will be learning from Facebook’s expert digital trainers and will have the opportunity to ask any questions as well as being able to meet and network with other small business owners in your local area.

 

Agenda:

  • Registration and Refreshments
  • Welcome and introductions by FSB
  • Facebook 201 Workshop – If you’re already using Facebook Pages and want to learn how to reach more people, this is for you
  • Instagram 201 Workshop – Level up your Instagram presence with new features like Instagram Stories ads, Actions and Shopping tags designed to make it easier for customers to engage with your business. Experience with Instagram for Business is recommended

Testimonials

"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""

Peter Hook, Manager
(Computer Systems Engineers)

"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.

It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"

Susan Fleet, Managing Director
(Lea Graham Associates)

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "

Judi Arditi, Director
(Travail Employment Group)

"“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)
