Every so often, I come across (or receive a friend request from) someone on Facebook, when it actuality, the someone is a business. I’m not sure why people keep doing this; Facebook has had business pages for over 5 years.

Regardless, since it seems to be something people don’t know, I thought I’d do a post on how to create a Facebook page.

1. Go to facebook​.com/​p​a​g​e​s​/​c​r​e​a​t​e​.​php.

That’s it. Your Facebook Business Page is finally up and running. You can probably make a few tweaks in your admin section, but it‘s ready to go.

Your next step is to just start posting content. Now, if you find yourself overwhelmed with lots of business and lacking time to devote resources to managing your page, feel free to drop me a line, and we can discuss how I can help you increase engagement on your Facebook page.
