     HAMMOND – The Louisiana Small Business Development Center at Southeastern Louisiana University will host a free class in Amite designed to help businesses understand Facebook advertising.
     Co-sponsored by the Amite Chamber of Commerce, Tangipahoa Parish Library and Northshore SCORE, the class is scheduled Sept. 19, from 9 to 10:30 a.m., in the meeting room of the Tangipahoa Parish Library in Amite, located at 204 NE Central Ave.
     Titled “Facebook Advertising Basics,” the beginners’ class will feature Kim Walker of 5 Stones Media in Hammond.
     “Business marketers know that Facebook advertising is very likely a critical piece of their marketing pie. But, it can be overwhelming and confusing,” said SBDC Assistant Director Sandy Summers. “This workshop will give businesses the tools necessary to get started.”
     Summers said the class covers the differences between boosting posts, creating custom audiences, the various types of ads, as well as how to set up and monitor ads.
     “In this class, we will look at the different goals you might have for your Facebook ads and how best to accomplish those goals,” Summers said. “If you’ve been interested in Facebook advertising or maybe you’ve boosted some posts but want to dig in a little further, then this class is for you.”
     Attendees should feel proficient at managing a Facebook account before taking the class, Summers added.
     There is no cost to attend; however, pre-registration is preferred.
     For more information, call 985-549-3831. Online registration is available at
