Chris Pike runs Hey Burt, a Social Media Management company which creates content and strategies for businesses who want an expert on board, but don't necessarily need a full time person.

Social Media, Facebook, Facebook adverts, facebook ad, return on investment, ads with results, Chris Pike, Hey Burt

Have you used Facebook adverts, paid your money and got zero return on your investment? 

No new sales, no qualified leads?  It seems like Facebook is great at taking your money, but not so good in getting you the business results you need. 

Chris Pike has great experience working in creating successful Facebook adverts for Hey Burt clients.  He shared with us how we too can create Facebook ads which actually get us sales!  


Chris is running a Google Analytics course in Hatch (after hours) this is a great opportunity for you to better understand what things are important when measuring traffic and behaviour on your website.  If you don't know what the reports and figures in your Google Analytics mean, book yourself a place on Chris's course!
