About This Class

Have you ever wondered why some Facebook pages have lots of people following them, but the posts don't get very many likes? As an artist I have built an extremely engaged and active Facebook following, where lots of people regularly comment and share my posts. This success has helped me to sell paintings directly through Facebook and is a big part of why I have been able to quit my day job and make a living from my Art.

In this class we will look at the following areas.

1. What I've done with my Facebook page to build it to this point.

2. What types of posts you should make on your page.

3. When you should post and how often.

4. How to use giveaways to build huge engagement and get lots of new page likes.

5. When to boost and when not to boost.

6. Some Facebook "Best Practice" that has worked really well for me.

Throughout this class I will give you practical, real life examples of Insights, Posts, Reach and other Stats from my Facebook page: Joe McMenamin

I encourage you to take this course to learn how you can sell your art through your Facebook page, and click through to my page and follow along with what I do there.

Joe was a bit hard to understand - but that was a combo of his great accent and my lousy speakers. Very good artist and is very knowledgeable on the subject. Well worth watching!!
I would recommend this class as a general overview on this topic. A more in depth class would be most appreciated. Thanks!
