The only thing holding you back from getting your business on Facebook is knowledge and time. Well I will provide the knowledge if you have the time, and I promise you won’t have to use a lot of it.
Make your own Facebook page
In order to create your business page, you will need to have your own profile on Facebook. The first thing you need to do is create a Facebook profile for yourself at www.facebook.com. Once you have made your profile, you then will simply go to the side panel on the home screen and click on the “like pages”. click on the green button that says “create page” and then follow the steps!
Make sure to include:
- Your store’s information
- Address, phone, hours of operation, services offered, brands carried, etc…
- A cover photo & profile photo
- Suggestion: Your cover photo could be a picture of your business, and your profile photo could be a picture of your logo or another picture of your business.
Keeping your profile up-to-date
It is important to post on your Facebook page “wall” at least once each week. The most important component to your Facebook page is that you are staying active. If you have something to share with your customers, post it on your wall.
Things to share:
- Industry-related material
- Photos of your store
- Photos of events happening involving your store
- Information about causes you support
- Sales updates
