How To Build a Facebook Business Page

By · October 1, 2009 · Filed in Facebook Business Page


I have been getting quite a few requests asking for tips to build their Facebook Business page. I decided to give steps in an incremental fashion so as not to overwhelm everyone. I will be adding tips to this post on a frequent basis so make sure to come back often to implement them.

Tip #1 – Go to your personal Facebook profile and scroll to the bottom of the page. Click on Advertising and look for Pages. You will see a Create page button. Be sure to think through the name of your page. Your Facebook business page name will be indexed by the search engines so keep that in mind. (It is possible to have a business page only, if you don’t currently have a personal Facebook account)

Tip #2 Upload a picture of you or your business logo.

Tip #3 Make sure to add your website to the info tab as well as in the text box under your photo. Write a short bio in the text box as well.

Tip #4 If you have a blog, go to the Notes tab and look for the option to import your blog to your page. If you don’t have a blog, start to consider starting one. Look for the blogs in your specific target area to get ideas. Feel free to get ideas from my blog @ Real Estate & Mortgage Social Media Marketing

Tip #5 Click edit on your page and scroll to the bottom and look for Applications. Browse through various business applications that will be useful to your page. I’ve use a poll application to ask what customers were looking for in particular on a specific page.

Tip #6 Static FMBL is a must have application to be able to add audio clips if you’d like or to even create new tabs such as a Welcome page. It basically allows you to add html code to your page for more enhanced graphics.

More tips coming soon..Feel free to add any tips in the comments…

    Hi EJ,

    There are a few steps involved. Have you added the Static FBML application to your page yet? This is the 1st step. Then the 2nd step would be to go to your program for your opt-in which could be or I use aweber so I logged in there and copied the html code for that particular optin and add it to the FBML box on your Facebook page. Let me know if this helps. :)
