Why Create Facebook Pages

While promoting with your personal profile is good, you get a lot of extra benefits when you create a page!  A page provides you with insights, statistics about your followers.  You can see their demographics, what time of day they are on facebook, etc.     If in the future you want to run ads on facebook, you can target them to the demographics of your page.   So if you have a business, you need a page.

Creating a Facebook Page:

Once you click “create a page” you’ll be redirected to a page that allows you to choose the type of page you wish to create. Is it for a product? A person? A local business?category

Head to the Facebook home page/news feed. In the top right corner, you’ll see an arrow that opens a dropdown list. In this list, you’ll see settings, support, news feed preferences, and an option to create a page.Create a Page or group

Next, you can choose an even more specific category. Say you want to make a page for a coffee shop you’re opening. You would choose the “restaurant/café” option.

Now you can start setting up your page. Tell people what your business is all about, add a picture, set a preferred audience, etc. You can skip these steps and complete them later if you wish.Setup

Click “skip” or “save info” to see your page in action and finalize the details. Don’t forget to add business hours and a phone number!

Invite your friends and family to “like” your page and to share the link with their friends. This is how you achieve the marketing snowball effect.

Now that you have a business page, be sure to post about your customers’ successes, tips on how to use products, sales, specials, and the like. You want a mix of content and not just sell, sell, sell.   Your main goal is to build relationships!
