The Kick-Off

Grow Faster with Facebook is a ten-part series about how an event organizer can use Facebook to get more out of Facebook Business Manager. In this part, you'll read about the subjects

When it comes to organising events, there is no more getting around Facebook and Instagram. There is a good chance that you have already created an event on Facebook so you could start buttering up your target audience for your event, and understandably so, as Facebook has over two billion registered users worldwide (whereas Instagram is on the rise). In 2018 the number of Instagram users grew to over a billion, which makes it safe to assume that the bulk of your potential visitors are likely active on Facebook and Instagram.

Since Instagram is part of Facebook's flagship, the marketing possibilities of the two systems are practically identical, so when we speak about Facebook in this series, we will be referring to both Facebook and Instagram.

Facebook has much more to offer than simply the ability to create events, for instance, you can plan advertisements, focus on and narrow down your target audience and make sure only specific people see your ads. You can even exclude users who have visited a particular page.
