UNLEASH YOUR POTENTIAL

Exploring new approaches, insights and taking part in an outstanding professional journey. In order for the Black Country to remain competitive and thrive, great business leaders and dynamic managers are needed. 

​ 

There are many who find themselves in management positions or elevated to roles that feel they have missed out on essential training which allows them to be effective and deliver success for themselves and their business.  

​ 

For the last five years, the Black Country Chamber has worked with Lotus Flower Consultancy in order to help those individuals who want to challenge themselves to develop new insights, explore different approaches and share invaluable development experiences. 

​ 

Over 200 individuals have taken their learning back to 140 businesses to help navigate challenges, embrace the opportunities and help their teams and businesses grow. 

​ 

In recent months, these leaders and managers have stepped up to lead through the most turbulent of times, and whilst utilising the invaluable lessons learned, they have led from the front and will continue doing so during the uncertain months ahead. 

​ 

Designed to stretch and challenge participants, programmes are run with participants from different backgrounds, experiences and industries creating a diverse environment where individuals can test and apply learning and developing together.

23rd September 2021

Creating your first campaign using Facebook Ads Manager 

Running paid ads on social media has become an essential strategy for many businesses, and Facebook is often the focus of these strategies. 

  

In order to make it easy for anyone to create ads, Facebook has a number of different tools and methods available for building these campaigns. However, in order to really get the most out of Facebook’s capabilities, advertisers should always look to use the standalone Ads Manager platform to manage their spending. 

​ 

In this 2-hour workshop you will learn: 

  • Why and how Ads Manager is different from boosting posts and using Facebook’s Ad Centre 

  • Ways in which you can create simple but effective audiences for both awareness and retargeting campaigns 

  • How to create a simple single-ad campaign that will achieve your desired business goals
