Wondering exactly how to get your Page started the right way?
Facebook continues to change and evolve, making it a moving target for people trying to find the correct steps to set up a Page. But never fear—we have all the critical pieces that you need to put in place to start your Facebook Page today.
To set up your Facebook Page, just follow these steps:
#1: Log into Facebook
If you do not have a personal profile set up on Facebook, do that first at www.facebook.com. Even if you don’t want a personal profile, we highly recommend that you create one rather than creating a “business-only” Facebook Page because of the limitations you will encounter (see point #8 for the Business-only Page limitations).
Now is a good time to examine your Facebook activities, cutting out what isn’t working and expanding what works.
Here are ten tips to help grow your Facebook community.
#1: Connect With Other Page Managers
This is a powerful tactic to a make a live connection with other Page admins who have a similar demographic to yours and cross-promote each other.
So if you are an ice cream store with a Facebook Page, make a live connection with the pizza parlor in your neighborhood that draws the same clientele (you may already know the owner of the pizza parlor). Then talk to him or her about doing a little Facebook cross-promotion and share each others posts with your audiences every once in a while.
Joint ventures also help forge these meaningful connections. Host a webinar with another company that has a similar audience. This can be a great way to become visible to their audience.
You’ve come to the right place.
Facebook marketing, when done right, is an extremely powerful tool. It can increase your leads, attract highly targeted prospects and position you as a sought-after industry leader.
To reap these business-building benefits, the key is to develop daily habits.
