How I became a Facebook Herbalist
Anna Rósa has become amazingly successful in Iceland, using Facebook as her primary outreach tool. She has over 25,000 fans of her Facebook business page, which makes her one of the largest companies on Facebook in Iceland. Her company sells in over 50 retail shops in Iceland, which is a one woman show. So how did she do this? By being very active on Facebook, she has managed to change the landscape of herbal medicine in Iceland.
Due to her educational resources, hundreds of people are now actively using herbs. She also runs a successful herbal products business. Anna Rósa will share her experience and ‘know how’ for using Facebook as an effective educational and marketing tool in the hopes of inspiring others on their way to success. She will be talking about practical things like should you spend money on advertising on Facebook, how to increase your likes, are photos important, how long should your posts be, should you make videos etc.
