Improve Your Facebook Strategy With 2019 MarkeTech Keynote Speaker
Facebook ad strategist Amanda Bond will share her secrets for converting Facebook fans into customers at the 2019 MarketTech conference in Kearney.
Amanda, who lives in Canada, is owner of The Ad Strategist and the creator of The StrADedy System. Entrepreneur Magazine calls her a “Facebook advertising genius” due to her unique mix of creativity and her vast analytical experience—from analyzing hundreds of millions of client ad impressions.
She mixes her dynamic and energetic personality with education and entertainment in a straight shooting way to show people the right way to create Facebook advertising. She’s the official Facebook advertising news correspondent for Social Media Examiner and a HubSpot Academy instructor.
Amanda describes herself as a lifelong entrepreneur, selling lemonade and bracelets in her youth. She always loved math and pursued a career as a social media manager and worked in the corporate world for several years, including a stint at Pepsi Co., before launching her own business, the Ad Strategist, three years ago.
She has helped clients successfully create multi-million dollar product launches using Facebook ads. At MarkeTech, she will explain how to create revenue using both organic (non-paid) and paid methods.
“I’m going to teach people to stop guessing and start getting results with their social media and Facebook ads,” she said.
GROW Nebraska CEO Janell Anderson Ehrke said she heard Amanda speak at the Social Media Examiner conference in California and wanted to bring her expertise to Nebraska business owners.
“For the majority of our businesses, Facebook is the primary social media platform they are using,” Janell said. “I’m real excited about Amanda because that’s her expertise.”
Amanda will demonstrate the power of Facebook advertising by promoting MarkeTech with $400 in Facebook ads. Results of that campaign will be available to those who attend MarkeTech.
In addition to Amanda Bond, the 2019 MarkeTech Conference will also feature educational sessions on LinkedIn and how to use that platform to gain customers or recruit employees, what small business owners need to know about voice-activated internet searches (like Alexa) and tips from a Google trainer (back by popular demand from the 2018 conference).
The 2019 MarkeTech Conference will be Wednesday, April 3, at the Younes Conference Center in Kearney. Registration for the conference will open by January 1.
Janell said MarkeTech has become a premier Midwest marketing gathering, and is a primary benefit of being a member of GROW Nebraska. For members, the cost is only $49 to attend this conference.
