Our Digiterati Facebook training is presented by Marie Page, leading UK Facebook expert and writer of  “Winning at Facebook Marketing with Zero Budget”.

Every marketer thinks they can do Facebook marketing. But increasingly organisations are seeing falling engagement on their Pages and tumbleweed on their posts.


With a platform that evolves at eye popping speed, rolling out new features and algorithm updates on a near daily basis, keeping on top of what works today is increasingly challenging, especially when Facebook is just one of your many responsibilities.

Suitable for micro businesses, SMEs, not-for-profits right through to leading brands, we’ll explore masses of content ideas and case studies throughout the day which you can adapt and use in your own sector. Even if you are an old hand at Facebook marketing there will be plenty of new approaches covered to inspire and inform further innovation on the platform.
