In depth Instagram Ads workshop

August 27 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm BST

Following on from Cathedral Quarter BIDs Lunchtime Learning sessions and the highly successful in-depth Facebook Ads Workshop, this time we take a deep dive into advertising on Instagram with expert Gil David. 

In this session, you will learn the key differences between Facebook and Instagram ads, how to maximise your results, taking advantage of Instagram Stories ads and actionable tips and tricks to take back to your own business, all based on Gil's experience managing and consulting on millions of pounds of ad spend on the platform in the last few months.

This will be a hands-on session walking you through the steps needed to create a great campaign with tutors Gil David (Run DMG) and Andi Jarvis (Eximo Marketing) on hand to provide guidance and advice. This session is suitable for anyone that's new to Instagram Ads and for those that already have a campaign up and running, it will help you understand best practice and give you the skills to improve your existing work.

This session will be taking you step by step through the process of setting up an effective ad campaign so it is essential that you bring a laptop.
