Creating a Facebook business page doesn’t need to be tricky

Unsure about pages and groups on Facebook? Are you trying to communicate your business services through a personal Facebook page? It’s easier than you think to set up a business page on Facebook. 

With over 2 billion monthly active users on Facebook, it’s impossible for any business to ignore. Having an up-to-date business page makes it easier for people to discover and interact with your business online and showcase your services. There needs to be a distinction between personal and business pages. You should save the holiday snaps and pictures of food for friends & family.
Do go for a page rather than a group as well – leave groups for clubs and societies to chat amongst themselves.

So, how do you do it?

Facebook page setup isn’t all that tricky, all you need is a little time and some photoshop basics:

  • Log in to Facebook
  • Look to the bottom of the list of shortcuts on the left
  • Click on create a page
  • Follow the set up and away you go!

You’ll need some info and images – but it’s all things you know anyway: your contact details, opening times and what you do.

Facebook will verify your page, and after you’ve had 10 likes you can change the @username to make it more memorable.

Get some images and posts on there about what you’ve been up to. Start following pages as your business. Have a look at who follows your competitors and follow them as well.


But, like all the marketing we “should” be doing, it’s time consuming to do, getting your images to the right dimensions is a pain and it’s all a bit of a faff when you’ve got orders coming in and the phone’s ringing.

We can create or freshen up your Facebook Business page for you to showcase your business and services from £49 + VAT. Send us the information you want to publish and we’ll set up the page and hand it over to you to manage and add to going forward.
