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 face​book​.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.
