Facebook Marketing: Zero to over £100k
I’m a firm believer that every business product or service can be sold through effective Facebook marketing. Whatever size your business is, a Facebook presence is essential. With over 2.2 billion monthly active users you would be mad to not be making the most of this platform.
In my seminar I’ll tell you some of the key strategies I used in my business as it went from zero to over £100k, selling a single product, using Facebook marketing alone.
Organic FB marketing or paid for ads? Which one works for you? How about I give you some tips for both. Including the strategies, tips and tricks I used to scale one of my businesses to over £120k in less than 2 years.

10 Things Your Customers Hate About You…
Based on the ‘cult’ movie. ‘10 Things I Hate About You’, Marc Ford MBA, Your Best Kept Business Secret, will take you through the 10 things that your customers or clients hate about you, and show you exactly what and how much you are leaving on the table every single working day.
This maybe painful to hear.
But he’s straight talking and has found that most business coaching doesn’t really help businesses because they are quite simply looking in the wrong place.
So here Marc is going to show you that if you look in the right place, embrace what your customers want, and use your mouth and ears in the right ratio, you’ll start to grow your business rapidly.
Straight talking, fun and energetic…get ready to blow up your competitors…(figuratively speaking)!
Speed networking enables you to quickly build up your contacts in a fast-paced and fun environment.
You sit opposite someone and you each get time to explain what you do.
You then move around the table until everyone seated has met everyone else.
