Spotlight on Paid Social Media

Spotlight on Paid Social Media

2nd October, Brisbane

Social media is a key channel in many marketing plans and it experiences perhaps the highest rate of change of them all. How are you adjusting your social media strategy to accommodate changes across these platforms?

At this event, we explore the latest in social media advertising. You’ll find out how to get the most from your ad budget, how to best leverage the targeting capabilities of these platforms and what creative is getting the most cut through.

Our speakers will share how they use paid social media in conjunction with their organic presence and how they decide what content and ad types to use where. Plus, see what reporting organisations have in place to track and deliver results.

Whether you are in B2B or B2C, if social media forms part of your marketing strategy, make sure you don’t miss this event. Book your ticket now.
