SM 230 | Social Media Advertising

There are natural limits on your contents’ ability to spread “organically” online. Advertising allows you to reach targeted audiences outside of your core supporters, based on specific criteria. This course explains how social media advertising works, how best to use it, and how to make the case for advertising to others in your organization.

May 5 Class: Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, this class will be offered online via Zoom. Registrants will be emailed the day before their class with detailed instructions and the Zoom meeting link. Please note the time for the Zoom classes will be provided in the email.

GCN is actively monitoring information from the CDC and health department and we understand that the situation is fluid, so we plan to be in contact with any changes.
