Facebook: Business Pages

You probably have already joined Facebook, and created a profile there.  Did you know you can also create a (FREE) Facebook Page for your business?

Go to http://www.facebook.com/business/ -- Click on Facebook Pages

 

Click Create a Facebook Page

 

Start creating the Page.  Here's a little curiosity.  The logical category for an agent or broker would be "Local Business" ->"Real Estate", right? 

 

But if you enter your page in the Real Estate category, the detailed information page will not give you a box for "General Information".  Huh?  Only "Public Transit".  While I love the environmentally conscious idea of throngs of people visiting my office via the light rail, I would also like to give a little general information about my company.  What the heck.  I just added the general information under Public Transit.

 

If you decide to call your company a "Brand, or Product",

 

 ...  you get these fields for general information,  but no field for location.

 

 

Oh well.  Moving right along.  Just go ahead and add/edit information.  You can also add photos, videos, and events.

 

This one took me a while to figure out.  Want to access your page again?  Go to your Profile and look at the items in the left column.  Click on Page Manager.

 

Need to delete a page?  Click on Page Manager, go to the Pages tab.  Click Edit Page

 

Then click Delete Page here

 

To create another, different page, click Page Manager, then look down at the bottom navigation, and click Businesses

 

It has taken me the last couple hours to sort through what should be simple navigation.  Maybe this will save some time for someone else!

If you want to thank me, you can go to my new company page on Facebook and become a fan:

I have a business fan page but have found to me that it is just one too many pages. It is all I can do to keep up with what I have.

Great tutorial for those who haven't set one up though!

Additional Information


Caution: CAT BLOG AHEAD

Including random thoughts on life, art, business, stuff, and occasionally Real Estate.

What is a CAT BLOG?

According to Seth Godin: "Cat blogs are for, by, and about the person blogging. A cat blog is about your cat and your dating travails and your boss and whatever else you feel like sharing in your public diary."

Well, I am the boss, my dating years are behind me, but I do love my cats.

Enjoy!
