  • Facebook & Instagram Advertising using Ads Manager

    From 10am until 12pm

    Outline of Programme

    This training course is designed to assist participants in creating a detailed Facebook & Instagram advertising plan and have the skills and tools to be able to implement and measure it.

    Outcome of Programme

    • Understand the online customer journey and have planned ad campaigns at each stage
    • Be aware of the importance of targeting warm/hot leads and how to achieve this within Facebook & Instagram
    • Know how to design and run a successful advertising campaign and be able to measure your ROAS (return on ad spend)

    New Procedures e.g. How and when to lodge import and export SADs, etc. New Licenses
    Depending on the industry in which the company is involved in, their issues may also be slightly different. For example, the food industry will have customs duty and border delays high on their agenda, the construction industry may also be affected by border delays, while textiles would be primarily impacted by high duty rates, and IT may have to consider Export Controls.

    The above is a very simplified explanation, as not alone does each industry experience each issue differently, but each company within those industries will be affected differently. For example, larger suppliers and customers will have more negotiating power on their supply chain compared to smaller suppliers and customers.

    Ultimately, however, importers and exporters will need to know how to move their goods through Customs in Ireland and the UK. Our course will enable companies to understand both Revenue rules in Ireland and HMRC rules in the UK. We will also cover the post Brexit simplifications being introduced by both Authorities and how to apply for these. We will also explain the operational requirements necessary to move goods through Customs.

    Specific modules will include:
    Understand how to start the import/export journey
    What is Customs?
    Background/role of Revenue/ HMRC
    Obtaining an Economic Operators Registration and Identification (EORI) number
    Engaging a customs agent/understanding the customs system
