Nicole’s talk will show you how to build an irresistible brand on social in 12 easy steps.

Build a brand with Facebook ads for less than the price of a cup of coffee a dayHow can you build an audience from nothing whilst not blowing your marketing budget? Heck, how can you even work out a marketing budget!? What if Dave was to tell you, that you could spend less than the price of a cup of coffee a day on Facebook to massively grow your audience so that you can begin to generate more qualified leads.

No BS presentation. He shows exactly how it is done, the theory, the why, the how. And guess what? He also taught us this exact process to sell tickets to this very event to a completely new audience that had never been exposed to our brand.

    Location information

    The venue

    I’m inviting you to join me where everything changed for me in my business nearly 5 years ago. Everyday Champions is my church and also a fantastic location for a conference based just 1 hour north of London and on many main train lines and near the M1 and M6.

    Note: Ample free parking onsite

    It is here I’ve heard amazing messages that have changed the way I look at my business and have used the content to transform my agencies. Where better to help others than where it all started? Be my guest and welcome home.

    More information on how to get here >>

    Local accomodation

    We’ve chosen to have the event at Everyday Champions located on Havelock St, Wellingborough NN8 4QA. This is my hometown and the building is the church/conference centre that I used to rent an office in and where I learned amazing lessons in business. My company was transformed so what a fitting place to bring you all to my local area where we can plan your next transformative steps!?
