Building Your Facebook Fan Page

It’s important to build social media sites to drive business to your website.

In this chapter, your objective is to build your Facebook Fan Page and optimize it for best results.

Let’s begin by setting up your Facebook Fan Page. To begin, go to this page.

While here, you will need to choose what type of page you want to create. This depends on your business.

If you have a “brick and mortar” physical location, and most of your customers will go to that location, you want to choose “Local Business or Place.”

If you have a business where you work from home or travel to your client’s location, then choose “Company, Organization or Institution.”

Below we will outline the process for a local business. If you are a company, organization or institution, skip to the following section below.

Fan Page: Local Business or Place

Step 1: Fill out your information and click “Get Started.” Your page is now created, so it’s time to fill out some basic information about your business.

Step 2:  Fill out more information.

  • Choose the category that best matches your business. As you begin typing, it will offer you suggestions. Then, copy the description that you wrote at the beginning.
  • Paste your website in the bottom box. Choose “Yes” or “No” to the final question click “Save Info.”
  • Upload your profile photo.
  • Choose whether or not to add your page to “Favorites”; this simply adds your page to your left hand sidebar when you are logged in to your Facebook account.

Step 3: You will be presented with a screen that looks like this:

Step 4: You will land on your actual page.

  • Click the “About” tab. On the left hand side, click “Page Info.”
