Creative Business Skills: Running your own Facebook & Instagram Ads



  • Thu 3 Nov: 2pm – 5pm

These workshops are aimed at people with a small creative business. Whether you are an artist, maker or musician these are practical, digital marketing workshops, to help you grow your business.

Facebook & Instagram both have the functionality to run ads, and both reach very different audiences. Most people will have one or both of these social medias but what is the best way to reach your audience and customers?

This practical workshop will cover all elements of social media Ads such as;

  • What kind of images to use?
  • Deciding who your audience is
  • Best practice
  • How to target your audience
  • How to optimise ads
  • Scheduling your ads

We will be hands on so please bring your chosen electronic device – whether you prefer to use a laptop or a tablet. Please sign up to Instagram beforehand (if you need support with this please get in touch prior to the workshop.)

We will look at different creative Instagram accounts to see who uses it well, and to help you get inspired! We will get a plan of action together so that you can leave the session ready to schedule at least a week’s worth of posts!

We will be keeping this workshop small so there will be plenty of opportunity for some one on one advice and support. There will also be plenty of opportunities to network with your fellow creative friends.

Workshop attendees get 10% off all food and hot drinks at the Café Bar.

We offer a range of film production courses covering scriptwriting, cinematography, sound, editing and visual effects, please do take a look at the full programme of courses available.

Places are limited and pre-booking is required.
