My name is Jerry Potter and today we're talking about how to set up a Facebook business page You've decided your business needs a Facebook Well, let me tell you this First of all, not all businesses need a business page But I will say, most of them do

To find out if you're the exception, I put a video together for that You can find it right here or in the description of this video By the time we're done today, you'll know how to set up a Facebook business page and I will tell you how you can get it verified, as well By the way, Facebook business pages, fan pages, like pages, they're all the same kind of page Facebook just calls them business pages now

So, to get started, make sure you have your company logo or something for your profile picture Something for your cover photo A big photo to go on top and then all your pertinent information What is your website, email if you have that, phone, address, business hours, any information about your business, which I assume you already know Gather that and you can do this in just a few minutes

Alright, let's get started Now there are a few different ways you can get to the create a page page But I think the easiest thing is just be at Facebookcom I'm logged into my account here

And you do, by the way, have to have a personal profile to create a business page So that is a first step if you don't even have a Facebook account But once you've got that, you'll see right here at the top, it says create Click on that All these different options

I'm gonna say create page And that gets us here Now, if for some for reason, you don't see that on your page, I'll include the direct link to this in the description of this video Next up, you're gonna choose, are you a business or brand or a community or public figure This is paired way down

They used to have way more options than this So, for this tutorial, I'm going to set up a page for a fictional consulting company So I'm just gonna choose business or brand Then I need to name the page What did I call it? Oh yeah, it was based on a logo template I found in Canva

Vague Whale Consulting Next, we're gonna choose a category to describe your page And in this situation, you just start typing something and find something that works for you So consulting agency, there I go I'm gonna choose that

Then hit continue Next, it will ask you to add a profile picture Yes, you can skip this, but, hopefully, you already have it ready When you're adding a profile picture, if you are a one person business or you represent the business, I think it should be your face If the company has a logo, make it the company logo

Don't make it anything else Remember, most people are gonna see it most of the time in a tiny circle on a mobile device, so it should be something easily recognizable So I add this logo, standing by Next up, upload a cover photo This goes at the top of your business page

This is a photo that should represent your business If you have a physical location, it might be a picture of your facility If you have a staff, it could be a picture of your staff Later in this video, I'll point you in the direction more about what to do when you're trying to decide what goes in your cover photo, but I'll go ahead and upload the one that I chose for Vague Whale Consulting Once your cover photo is uploaded, you can drag it to reposition it

Figure out the best spot for it to be And just like that, you have a page That's it But, you're definitely gonna want to do more than that For example, you're gonna want to go in and fill out all of your company information

So you see right here, it says add a short description We consult businesses on how to grow but we never give them specific advice, just really vague suggestions I'm sure this company will do very well Hit save and continue You've got a phone number, put that in

If not, uncheck that This company is fake Doesn't have a website, but I'll put it in anyway Next, it says now that you've updated your page info, see if there are other details you can add that will be helpful to people who visit your page Let's go ahead and click edit page info

This is where you can go through and fill out all of your information You can add additional categories So if I type in consulting again Let's say I am a business consultant So I can add that in and hit save

If you decide if you do have a phone number, email address, location, all these different details about your company Your business hours Fill out as much of this as possible because, eventually, if somebody's looking for a business on Facebook, the more information you have, the higher the chances that somebody is going to find you Alright, last step, you're gonna want to give your page a username This is where your web address will be on Facebook

So it'll be Facebookcom slash whatever your username is So click right here underneath your profile picture and title and then type in what you would like it to be Lucky for me Vague Whale Consulting is available

So I go ahead and hit create username So now if I look up at the top here in the address bar, you can see it's Facebookcom/vaguewhaleconsulting So there you go, you have a Facebook business page Two more things you should do

One is get it verified If you are a local business company or organization, it's super easy and I've got a link on how to do that down in the description of this video And secondly, I've put together a five minute Facebook facelift So whether you've had your page for 60 seconds or for five years, these are some things to look for in a five minute video on how to optimize it for profit You can grab that link in the description of this video, as well
