That's a question I was musing over recently as I wanted to get more traffic to my website so people could browse my Online Courses www.freewriterscentre.org/online-courses.html and see what Live Events www.freewriterscentre.org/live-courses--events.html were coming up.
I had some trepidation about committing to the Facebook advert www.facebook.com/freewriterscentre/ as it can always be 'a moment' when you hand your bank or Paypal details over – however – Facebook let you stay in control of the spend. You select how much you want the advert to cost per day and for how many days and go for it! I selected £2 per day for 14 days – so no big financial commitment there – but after 7 days my advert has already been seen by over 13000 people.
In terms of who I selected for the audience; for this one I went with Facebook's algorithm choices of 18 – 65 yrs within the UK wide. However on other adverts I will select differently as I have an international audience and due to my many years living in Egypt I still have a strong trusted presence and still have work and clients coming in from there. I also wish to expand my online presence to a global one as the Online Courses can be taken anywhere at anytime.
So, if you want to boost a Facebook Ad or you're thinking of creating content to advertise on Facebook or make any marketing campaign I can verify that the Facebook Business Centre is A-OK and DOES get results.
Go for it!
Next time I'm going to try out making a Youtube www.youtube.com/channel/UCczh7mMCua_FJZP9J_mWZ_Q 'reactions' video – in the first case it will be my reaction to Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time In Hollywood which I saw in Bristol a few days ago and LOVED his re-imagining of the Sharon Tate case.
Google likes specifics so I'm listing what I do but also read on for 'that' great poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

Now let me paste in that fabulous poem:
How Do I Love Thee? (Sonnet 43)
Elizabeth Barrett Browning - 1806-1861
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
Workshop reviews from participants over the last week of taking my Airbnb (Creative Writing) Experiences, Airbnb Experiences are open to all - just book through Airbnb. I offer two Experiences:
Mindfulness and Creative Writing 2 hr Workshop
This short course was a great introduction to the use of Mindfulness concepts coupled with sound knowledge of useful techniques to inspire creative writing.
A very interesting and informative meeting. The two hours passed very quickly and Linda explains her subjects in such a way that understanding is made easier for a beginner in writing.
Creative Writing 2 hr Workshop
I was amazed by how much Linda fitted into the 2 hour workshop. I thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt so much. Thank you Linda
I had an absolutely brilliant time. I couldn’t believe how much I learnt in only a few hours. Linda really listened and gave positive advice and suggestions which were very welcome. I would highly recommend this experience and wouldn’t hesitate to book another with her.
Fantastic experience! In such a short space of time I learnt so much, if you only have time for one writing course make it this one. Only a longer course could be better!
I've recently joined Airbnb offering my Creative Writing workshops as Experiences. This means that anyone can still enjoy them but you need to book those specific workshops through Airbnb directly - follow the links under the titles. I'm currently offering two Experiences:
Creative Writing workshop
Mindfulness and Creative Writing
It feels genuinely FANTASTIC to be part of a global community with so many people doing so many great things!
I'll be adding to my Experiences over time but for now: Come on and #GetYourWriteOn!
