How do you set up your Facebook Business Page?
We have been talking about Facebook a lot lately. The reality is, it’s a great resource available to increase traffic and generate revenue for your online business. But maybe you aren’t interested in having a personal Facebook page. Maybe you aren’t big on social media to the effect of having your own life on display. We get it!!
Did you know that you can have a Facebook business page EVEN IF you don’t have a personal page???? You can!!
Facebook has so many different resources available that it would be a shame to not even consider using them to increase the eyes and revenue with your online business. The great news is a business page doesn’t require much personal information at all, because it’s a business page. Individuals are expecting to interact with employees, and see content related to the business itself, not info about your personal life.
Are you sold on getting a Facebook business page, but don’t know what to do to set it up?? Let us help walk you through it with a few easy steps.
1st- Create the page.
Of course this part is a bit self-explanatory. You want to go ahead and create the business page. You want to set this up in a professional way, but also with whatever tone and feel you want people to experience when they visit your brand. While it is a business page and clients expect some degree of professionalism, it is still also a Facebook account which leave a little room to add your own personality to your product or service.
2nd- Invite your friends.
In the same way you would rely on friends and family to promote your business from a personal page, you should have the same expectation from a business page. Get started by inviting family and friends to follow or like the page. Your friends and family want to help you succeed, so don’t be shy about asking!
3rd- Promote your page.
Again, you will want to rely partly on your family and friends for free promotional posts. This is as simple and easy as asking your family or friends to share your business page, share your posts, or even create their own posts and tag your business page. You also want to promote your business Facebook page on your website as well. When clients feel they can follow you on social media, they tend to become more engaged. Add your Facebook url to your business cards too. You want to sprinkle that url everywhere you have a point of contact with your customers and give them a way to easily follow you and interact with you.
Having a business page can be just the thing you need to keep a level of professionalism, as well as create a deeper level of intimacy with your clients. This can prove to be rewarding, and is a resource that doesn’t require much time and energy in order to get started.
