Facebook has now 2 billion monthly users. That’s a lot of people but also a fantastic opportunity to reach out to new customers, if you are running a business.

Set up your Facebook Page

Hi everybody so as I said today we’re gonna talk about creating a Facebook Business Page, the very first thing you need to understand is, you need to have a personal profile on Facebook. Before you can actually create your own business page and this is because Facebook wants to know who you are, and who owns that page so once you’ve logged into you a personal profile on Facebook into your personal profile on Facebook, all you need to do is to create your page. And to do that you are gonna need to click on the page creation link which sits under the navigational menu on the left hand side. And that’s gonna take you to the main area when you can create a business page so let’s do that once you’re in there you’ve got multiple options, what interests us today is the local business place so let’s select that.

Ok so you should now see a form with multiple fields that you need to fill in, in order to describe your page starting with the page name or the name of your business. So for the sake of this exercise, I’m gonna pretend that I’m a baker, and I’m gonna call myself bakery for you, the next field is the page category, obviously being a bakery, I’m gonna search for bakery, you will see that Facebook offers multiple options here trying to pick the one that is the most relevant to your business. Street address, pretty straightforward, country by default will be displayed, and then finally your postcode which has already kind of been prefilled partly, and finally your phone number. Okay, once you’ve done all that, you just need to click on Get Started.

Well done, so you’ve created your business page. Obviously it looks a little bit naked, and we need to cover that in a minute. But the very first thing that you need to do, is to unpublish your page. Why, because it looks pretty poor right now, and if anyone was to access it by chance, I don’t think that would look very professionnal. So in order to do that, just go into your settings, the settings of your page right at the top here click on the link under the general tab, choose page visibility and click “Edit”. Pick the Page unpublished option, and click Save changes. You will be presented with a pop-up. Just click Next, and then take the first box on this one too and click Unpublish. Your page is now unpublished.
