This next session of this workshop will be held in June 2019. Please hop on my (non-icky) email list to receive notice of future bite-sized workshop dates and times. 

NOTE: Some folks do best with one-to-one (I’m one of those types.) If you’re more interested in a private, one-to-one session to begin crafting your own Facebook page and ads, you may be interested in this cool beginner 1:1 session that’s all about you.

You can also send me an email if you have questions. I’m here to help.

For all its faults, Facebook is still an excellent, inexpensive way for businesses and self-employed folks to find their ideal clients. There aren’t very many other ways that allow us to identify, reach, and HELP thousands of your perfect people for less than $30/month.

But knowing what a bitter pill it can be, how can we use it wisely and sanely to grow our work/business? How can we be sure our message and offerings are being seen by the right people…without having to deal with privacy intrusions, unwanted messages and requests, possible hackers, and all the rest? And…is it worth it?

In this workshop—which, despite all that, I promise will be fun!—we’ll learn:

  • The right way to set up your personal profile and your business page – you do need both
  • Useful, thoughtful, and compassionate things to share with your audience
  • The right setup steps to best protect your privacy
  • Setting notifications that won’t constantly steal your attention and focus
  • The adjustments to make to avoid unwanted contacts
  • How to keep hackers and other ne’er-do-wells out of your account
  • The incomparable tool to filter garbage from your Facebook feed so you never even see it
  • Tips and tricks to avoid getting lost down the Facebook-browsing rabbit hole
  • …and lots more

Facebook has SO much potential for growing the work you do…

Facebook is still a multi-talented tool for those of us who work for ourselves:

  • Promoting our offerings and message to an audience of over 2 billion people
  • Inviting conversation with our ideal audience members
  • Finding new clients, readers, collaborators, and donors using Facebook’s tools
  • Events – publicizing ours and learning about other peoples’
  • Video and imagery
  • Public/private groups
  • Business page sharing and conversations
  • Maps and details for brick-and-mortar businesses
  • A quick online shop

…but there’s the Ick Factor:

  • Personal data privacy questions
  • Unwanted posts and notifications and contacts and private messages and dreck
  • Exposure to criticism, constructive and otherwise
  • Managing conversations and private messages
  • Dealing with the dinging and bonging of notifications
  • Distraction
  • Hackers and other worries

The good news?

We CAN have the good stuff…without all the bad stuff.

Together, we can do this.

I’m Margaret Rode, and for more than 20 years I’ve been a consultant, coach, and tech sherpa serving thoughtful solo practitioners, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and nonprofits.

I offer this training for a very selfish reason: I was a late adopter of Facebook because of all of the above reasons, and as a result I missed out on some beautiful opportunities to promote the work I do. If I can help even one other person slice through the icky stuff to find new clients and connections, I’d consider that an awesome day.
