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.

  • Registration and Refreshments

It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
