One of the best ways to get your business name out to the public is by signing up for as many free online websites as possible. These websites include but not limited to: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Google My Business and many more. The more times your business name appears online the more it will show up when someone is looking for your product or service. As time goes on more of these sites pop up and become relevant, such as one of the newer ones known as TikTok. Each platform is different when it come to making a page or profile. We are going to explain how to create a Facebook Business Page step by step. When creating a business page you must first have a personal Facebook page. Your personal page will be how you access your business page whenever you want to make posts and changes.
Step 1 – Go to the Page tab on Facebook either on a desktop or your phone
Step 2 – Click/Press the +Create button and the page below will pop up
Step 3 – Fill in Business Name
Step 4 – Fill in your Category. This can be difficult depending on the business. Tip: You can look for a similar business on Facebook and see what they picked for their category.
Step 5 – Fill in a brief description explaining your business. Step 4’s Tip works for this as well. Then press Create Page.
Step 6 – Add a profile picture. This would be your logo or any picture that represents your business. 170×170 pixel size picture works best.
Step 7 – Add a cover photo. This could be your store front, picture of your team or a picture of your products. 851×315 pixel size photo works best.
Once you have completed these 7 steps you have a Facebook business page completed. However, there are a few more things you should complete to make your page work best for your business. You want to find the about section in the picture and fill out as much of the information as possible.
Most of this section is self explanatory, however entering the location can be a little difficult when it comes to finding the location on the map. For some reason, Facebook doesn’t find your location on their map when you enter your address. Therefore, you have to find the location of the business manually. The best way I found is to go to google maps and find the location so you can reference, when you are on the Facebook map. If you do not do this step your location will be set on the map at the wrong point and can be a pain to change later.
Hopefully, these step by step instructions help you create your business page. There are some other tips and tricks you can do through the settings tab such as turn off reviews, change the tabs customers see and other little things that can help you page be more successful. If you have any questions put them in the comments and we can answer them as soon as possible.
