How To Make A Business Fan Page On Facebook


Making a fan page on facebook is a simple process. Fan pages can be used for business and pleasure; make a fan page for fun or as a marketing tool for your business. Fan Pages are often referred to as Business Pages.

To create a Facebook fan page you must first have a Facebook profile and be logged in. Information regarding your page should also be to hand – content, images etc.

Think about the title for your fan page – this is very important as Facebook will NOT let you change it. Take your time and pick your title carefully as this is what people will see when searching for your page and it is also what Facebook uses when searching for your fan page.

An eye-catching image is a must. This will draw users to your fan page. I feel a square image is best as Facebook will frame your image and crop it into a square icon. It is this square icon that will show in the news stream.

Now you are ready to create your fan page. Click on the link "Ads and Pages" link on the left side of your home page and then on the "Create Page". Select the category of the page and the title you thought of earlier -  I would advise on clicking the "Do not make Page publicly visible at this time." until you get your page looking just the way you want.

This is your page created. Editing the information is very similar to your normal facebook profile. Make sure you add your image and information about your page before you publish and start promoting. No one will become a fan of a fan page that is empty!

Customizing your fan page design is more complex and requires FBML & HTML knowledge however it is worth considering if you are serious about getting your brand image across!

Now invite all your friends to become fans – all of them (the more fans the better!)

Select "My Events" from the facebook navigation menu. If you do not see the tab labeled “My Events” on your main page navigation, look for the tab that has a “+” symbol.  That should take you to a page listing all the events you are currently hosting and or planning to attend.

An event details page should appear, complete all the details about the event, include the time and place. You can always edit these later, but try to get as much detail in as you can initially.

Step -5: Setting level of access for your event

Choose from one of there main levels of access for each event.  It is Open, Closed and Secret.  Choose the level of access to your event that best suits your goals. If the event is open, anyone can see the details and add himself or herself to the guest list. If the event is closed, only the time and description is shown to uninvited guests. Facebook users can request to be added to the guest list for complete event info. A secret event will not appear in search results and will only be viewable by those people you invite.

Step-6 : Publishing Your  Event

Click "Create Event" to complete your event details.

Step -7 : Personalizing Your Event Page
