THE NEXT WEB: Facebook does well when its advertisers do well, so it is today launching new free educational resources for marketers on its platform, both big and small. First up, ‘Blueprint‘ is a new program for training brands on the best practices for advertising and marketing campaigns.
It’s not just an information hub on the Web either; it combines online courses with in-person training and provides certifications for brands that “master” Facebook marketing.
The courses are organized by category or otherwise cater to specific roles. You can also choose from full-on “tracks” you’d like to follow if you’re looking to learn a specific collection of skills.
There are currently over 35 courses; some examples include Facebook Terminology, Direct Response Marketing and A/B Testing. The program will keep track of your progress and results.
Blueprint is available in English on the desktop and mobile so long as you have a Facebook account.
For newcomer businesses on Facebook, the company has launched ‘Learn How,‘ an online learning center offering simplified guides to frequently asked questions.
It includes videos, photos and step-by-step instructional guides to show businesses things like how to create a Page or Custom Audience. Learn How is available in 14 languages on a newly redesigned Facebook for Business website.
