Meanwhile, the ladies of BFF (Beauty, Fun and Freelancing) will give these lucky freelancers a physical makeover too. Eat your heart out, Xander Ford!

  • [NEW WORKSHOP] Facebook Ads Basics: Focus on E-commerce Businesses and Brands

    Holiday Inn & Suites Makati 5th Floor

    $120.00

    Admit it, Facebook has taken over our lives. We check our FB accounts almost every minute, maybe even every second. Fact is, Facebook currently has over 1.9 billion monthly active users, growing exponentially by 17% every year. In the Philippines, we are ranked #1 in terms of time spent on social media, beating the likes of Brazil, South Korea, The U.S., and Japan, earning us the monicker — The Social Media Capital of the World. The Good News For small and medium business owners, the good news is that you only need to go to Facebook and your target customers will be there, waiting for you to sell them your product or service. The Bad News The bad news (yes there is one) is that as the premier social network grows at a rapid pace (there are about 50 million Facebook business pages as of 2015), it will get even nosier — making it harder, more challenging and (ouch!) more expensive for you to reach your clients. Worse, odds are very high that your competitors are already there, leaving your business behind in the race for your customers’ attention. WHAT YOU NEED TO DO… • You need to create an effective social media strategy to be able to stand out and beat your competitors. • You need to invest in the right tools to appear in your clients’ news feeds and send the right message to them at the right time. And to do that, you need to access the most powerful tool out there that successful businesses, big or small, use these days to leverage the power of the platform. YOU NEED TO USE FACEBOOK ADS. Why spend millions for that billboard, TV or print advertisement that people will never see…when you can spend as little as P50 a day and reach thousands of people — no, even millions of people — worldwide? Not yet convinced? Our client’s local business spent only P3,206.93 but generated over P150K in sales for the month of June 2017. That is almost 48 to 1 return on investment (For every 1 peso we spend on advertising, we get 48 pesos back). They did that WITHOUT any website and with only a Facebook Page. It really is a no-brainer. Now, what if you never experienced running a Facebook Ad? Or you tried creating an ad or tried boosting your post but got poor results? Well, your worries are over! We would like to invite you to our: FACEBOOK ADS BASICS FOR E-COMMERCE BUSINESSES & BRANDS WORKSHOP! (http://manilaworkshops.com/events/fbadsbasics-4) It will be held on Saturday, 21st of October from 1-5pm at the Holiday Inn in Ayala Center, Makati.
