How to create a new Facebook Page made easy.

Facebook Pages lets you grow your business on and off Facebook.

A Facebook page is a public profile specially designed, structured and created for businesses, celebrities, education, and other related functions.

Now add the following to your Page:

Description:

Click + Edit About to add a short description to your Page. Keep your description brief (1–2 sentences).

Contact Info: 

Add a phone number, website, and email address. People who visit your Page can access this information to get in touch with you.

Location Hours:

If your business or organization has a physical location, consider adding an address and business hours, so people know when and where to visit you.

How to optimize your Facebook Page

Optimize your Page with the following strategies:

A custom template

You can update your page layout to best match your business type or goals in your Page Settings.
You can choose templates for venues, nonprofits, politicians, restaurants, shopping, services, etc.
You can view details about each template from your Page Settings and update to a new template if you choose.

A unique username

It’s easier for people to find your Page in search when it has a unique username. Pages with usernames can also create custom URLs that let people quickly visit and message them.

A Call-to-Action button

A CTA button is a great way to drive people who visit your Page to take action you care about, like booking a service or getting in touch with your business.
Call-to-action buttons appear prominently at the top or bottom of your Page when viewing on your phone.
The buttons are easy to add and can help drive real business results. You can change your call to action at any time.

Create a Group

Groups provide a space to communicate about shared interests with certain people. You can create a group for your business to connect with specific people.

Set up messaging

Your business will have access to Messenger after you create your Page, so you can interact and respond to customer messages.
You can set up instant replies so that anyone who sends you a message gets an automatic response letting them know you’ll get back to them shortly.
You can also set up an away message for any time you’re not available on Messenger because you’re away but want to let people know you’ll get back to them soon.

Tip: Do well to get a “Very responsive to messages” badge added to your Page. This lets people know you can be reached easily through Messenger and may improve your Page’s credibility.

Once you have this badge, do your best to keep it by quickly getting back to your followers.

Tips for Services businesses 

  • Start by making sure your Page is using the Services template.
  • Add a Services menu so people can browse your offerings.
  • Make sure Recommendations are turned on so customers can review your business.
  • If your business accepts appointments, consider setting up Appointments on Facebook to manage your appointment calendar directly on Facebook and allow customers to book directly from your Page.

Tips for Restaurants

  • Start by making sure your Page is using the Restaurants template.
  • Then add a menu to your Page so people can see what you serve.
  • Make sure Recommendations are turned on so customers can review your business.

Tips for Retail and E-commerce businesses

  • Start by making sure your Page is using the Shopping template.
  • If you want to showcase and sell products directly on Facebook, add a Shop section to your Page.
  • If you primarily sell your products via a third-party website, you can also update your Page action button to drive traffic to your website and add a Facebook Pixel so you can track conversions from your website. Learn About Facebook Pixel Chrome Extension | Facebook Pixel Helper.

How to Engage Your Audience

To engage your audience on your Facebook page:

1. Write a welcome post

Create a welcome post for your Page that includes details about your business and why people should like your Page.
Provide information about what you’ll share on your Page, like special offers, updates about your business and more.

2. Pin your welcome post

After creating your welcome post, you can pin it to the top of your Page so that it’s the first thing people see when they visit. The pinned post remains at the top of your Page until you change or remove it.

3. Share meaningful content

Your Page needs to be active and engaging so your audience knows you’re a legitimate business that cares about interacting with them.

4. Use Page Stories

Page Stories is a freeway that lets you share pictures and short video segments that bring your audience on a journey from start to finish for anything you might be working on or experiencing. This shares a meaningful look behind the scenes of your business with your followers.

5. Events

Create Events on your Page to build a community around your business and drive foot traffic into your establishment.

6. Make a job post if you’re hiring

Post job opportunities on your Page for free. Potential applicants can see your job post on your Page in the Jobs bookmark or through Marketplace, and they can learn more about your business before applying, so you get informed applicants.

Facebook Page FAQ

Do I need a Facebook account to start a page?

Unfortunately, without a personal account, you cannot create a Facebook business page or a business account. You must use your own personal account to become an administrator of a business profile in order to comply with Facebook’s standards.

s it necessary to link a Facebook company page to a personal account?

Every business page on Facebook must be connected to a personal profile, but all the content—posts, comments, images, updates, etc.—is kept separate. Unless you explicitly transfer the information between pages, neither your personal profile nor your business page will contain the other person’s information.

What distinguishes a Facebook page from a Facebook account?

This is a frequently asked question. Simply put, a Facebook Profile is what users create for their personal use, whereas a Facebook Page is what is created when a business or other group needs a Facebook presence.
