Facebook Community Boost was a recent event that came to Buffalo from July 9th to the 11th. This event was created for every type of business owner whether it be small or large, new or old, or even just thinking of starting one. The idea of this event was to connect with entrepreneurs and help them gain knowledge on topics like eCommerce, Promotion, Connecting with customers, and the overall use of Facebook and Instagram for a business in this day and age. Hopefully, by the end of this three-day event, you were filled with bright ideas and goals to shoot for in the near future. I know I was!
Unfortunately, I was only able to attend one of the three days sessions, and that was on July 10th. My experience with the Facebook Community Boost was great! Going alone as a senior in college and on behalf of my internship, I had little clue what to expect. Right when I walked through the door I was greeted by a friendly smile, told my agenda and given directions to wherever it is I wanted and needed to go. With so many classes to choose from in this event and so much time, I chose my five classes. Digital Presence, Stand out with Instagram, Finding new customers on Facebook, eCommerce, and Instagram story school. Each one is as helpful and entertaining as the next. The speakers where very intelligent and informative. I learned how important the connection can be with customers from having a website for your business instead of a brick and mortar store. The biggest take away from this event was the impact promotions through Instagram and Facebook can have for you and your business. Just by spending $50 or more you can spread your brand or service to people in a targeted area that would have never know about you before. This is a great tool to use especially because everyone is digital and that’s where people spend their time. There is always more to learn on how to adapt your business to this tech-savvy world and Insta and Facebook are a great place to start!
