Design Your Own Facebook Page Step by Step

Facebook, Like, Page

The world has gone social. This is true whether you are talking about the Web, how you interact with companies, or how you find information. Marketing your business is no different. People crave the social, they seek connection. All of this boils down to one word: relationship. Right now, and no doubt for the foreseeable future, Facebook is at the center of this social universe.

Facebook is without a doubt where the overwhelming majority of your target market is. They share, play games, and post things that are meaningful to them or that make them laugh. If this is where your market is spending its time, then this is also where you should be spending your time. Be where the market is.

I am going to walk you through how to put up a Facebook Page and offer some tips to make it work for your brand.

Set Up Your Facebook Page

  1. Go to Facebook Pages.
  2. Sign in.
  3. Click the Create a Page button.
  4. Click the box most relevant to you.
  5. Fill out the short form.
  6. Put a check next to “I agree”.
  7. Click the Get Started button.
  8. Put up a picture. I would recommend your logo. Other choices could be a picture of you and your team or good head shot.
  9. Click Next.
  10. Add a good description of your product or service.
  11. Add other social media sites and your Website.
  12. Add what type of place this is.
  13. Answer what the page represents.
  14. On Enable Ads click Skip. The reason is ads will cost you money and we are just setting up your page at the moment. You can make your decision on Facebook Ads later.

You now have a basic and very empty Facebook Page of your own. Now let’s make it your own.

Make Your Facebook Page Your Own

  1. Click Like. If you don’t like your Page why would you expect anyone else to?
  2. Upload a cover image for your page. Take your time on this one. People like the visual and you want it to look good.
  3. Click About and make sure all information is filled out.
  4. At the top of the page click Edit Page and then Update Info.
  5. Fill out all the information.
  6. Click Save Changes.
  7. Click View Page.

Set Up Your Page Management

  1. Click Edit Page and then Manage Permissions.
  2. Make any changes you want if any.
  3. Click Save Changes.
  4. Click View Page.
  5. Click Edit Page and then Admin Roles.
  6. Add other admins if you wish and clock Save.
  7. Click View Page.
  8. Click Edit Page and then Manage Notifications.
  9. Make your Selections and click Save Changes.
  10. Click view page.

Now you have your very own Facebook Page that is set up and ready to use. Now what? I will close this post with some tips and a very important question.

Tips

  • Add content. You should post to your page at least once a day, Don’t become a spammer but be sure to post consistently.
  • Along with text and links also post images and videos. Always remember, people love the visual.
  • Add Milestones.
  • Keep your posts to no more than 100 characters.
  • Use the Question feature to ask questions.
  • Share your Page on your Timeline.
  • Under Build an Audience send a request to your friends to like your Page.
  • Email an invite to your Page to your contacts.
  • Announce your Page on your other social media accounts.
  • Announce your Page on your business cards and newsletter.
  • Have fun and be fun with it. People like fun and interesting. If you are neither they will not be interested.

This has been a very basic intro and list of tips. It is definitely enough to get you started. Here’s to your success and getting social.

Now for the very important question:

What is the URL of your Facebook Page?

  1. When someone writes an article he/she retains the image of a user in his/her brain
    that how a user can be aware of it. Thus that’s why this post is amazing. Thanks!

  2. I was suggested this web site by my cousin. I am not sure whether
    this post is written by him as no one else know such
    detailed about my trouble. You are incredible! Thanks!

  3. Keep on writing, great job!

  4. First of all I would like to say awesome blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had
    a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Appreciate it!

      I usually create an outline then put on some music and start t typing. If I run into a block I do something else and come back to it. Sounds like a simple answer but it is the system that works for me. I hope that helped. Thanks for reading and let me know if you have any more questions.
