Having a Facebook Page is a great way to showcase your business. You can connect with current and potential customers, upload your products and services to a Facebook Page Shop and use that as a base from which to advertise on Facebook.
All Facebook Pages need to be attached to a private Facebook Profile (this is a Facebook requirement). You will be able to acess your Facebook Page/s and Groups (if you choose to create or join groups) all from your private profile. You can have multiple business pages attached to your private profile and toggle between them all. You can also add others as admins or editors to your Facebook Page.
How to Create A Facebook Page
Step 1. – Log into your Facebook Private profile and in the top right hand area of the blue topbar select “create”.
Step 2. – Select either “Business or brand” or “Community of public figure” and then select the relevant “Get Started” button.
Step 3. – Enter the business or brand name, and the select a category of business. When you enter your category, Facebook will drop down a list of suggestions for you to chose from. If you do not find what you want there, try using a different name for the category.
Step 4. – Enter your address and your phone number (optional). You can elect to not show your full address, only the town/city and region, by ticking the box at the bottom of this section.
Step 6. – Upload your Facebook Page cover photo. Facebook advises that cover photos that are a sRGB JPG file that’s 851 pixels wide, 315 pixels tall and less than 100 kilobytes load fastest.
Facebook Page cover photos must be at least 400 wide by 150 tall pixels.
How to Add an Admin or Editor to your Facebook Page
Step 7. – To add an admin or editor to your Facebook Page, select “Settings” while on your Facebook Page.
Step 8. – Select “Page roles” from the “Settings” page.
Step 9. – Scroll down to “Assign a new Page role” sectin and fill out the details of who you wish to add to your Facebook Page. You can search by name (works best if they are on your private profile friends list) or their email address they use to sign into Facebook.
Then select the role you wish them to have. Admin gives them the same permissions that you as the Facebook Page owner has. For this reason, many opt to add editors instead of admins as it is the next level down from Owner or Admin.
