I have a love-hate relationship with Facebook – I love it for how connected it can make us, and for how I can keep in touch with family and friends, but I do find that using it for my business can be more than a little frustrating at times.
I’m sure we have all been in the situation where we post something out there on our page, only for Facebook to tell us 12 hrs later that it has reached 3 people.
In this episode, I have a fabulous chat with Michelle Purse from My Outsourced Marketing Team who I think I want to be my new best friend – she really made me laugh with her down to earth approach, and she packed SO many tips and actionable stuff into this episode.
Michelle has also really generously sent me her Facebook post planner for you all to download, (which I’ve already started using!) – you can find it in the links, or get it right here – thanks so much Michelle!

- Who should be using Facebook and why
