YOU ASK?! WE ANSWERED!! Many of our clients ask us, “How Do I Make a Facebook Fan Page? “, so we wrote a simple tutorial for those who want to learn how.
Creating a Facebook fan page is both easy and beneficial for your company or business’ online presence. Facebook fan pages are profiles for companies, businesses or celebrities and an interactive way to network, connect with and advertise to current and potential customers, also known as “fans”.
A benefit of having a page over a group is that all users can view your profile. A group page is only visible to group members and is not accessible to outside visitors. Groups can be used to invite members into a private discussion or event. A fan page builds a long-term relationship and public profile for your company while groups are a way to draw quick attention for a specific purpose.
Groups allow members to send bulk messages to friends, while pages allow you to attract new fans and keep current fans interested. You can share photos, create discussions and provide inside information on what’s happening with your business.
How To Make a Fan Page on Facebook
Go to www.facebook.com . Click on “Create a Page for celebrity, brand or business” under the sign up form.
Choose official page and select the option that fits best. Type the name of your fan page next to Page name:.
You will be instructed to log in using your current Facebook account or create a new account.
Welcome to your page! You can now build your page with company information. Start by adding an image that represents your purpose, such as your logo.
Import contacts from your e-mail account and send page suggestions to current friends to notify them of your page. This helps your current customers connect with you on Facebook.
Share your latest news by posting status updates to keep fans current with your business. This also allows them to interact with you by commenting on or “Liking” your posts. This activity helps you gain exposure to others, since friends of your fans can see their activity and as a result, find your page.
Let the world know you have a fan page by promoting it on your website. Add a Facebook icon or “Like” button to your current website so users can find you.
The final and most important step is to maintain your fan page. You can do this by visiting often, posting frequent status updates and by sparking discussions with your fans. Ask for feedback and invite your fans to interact with you, review your service and suggest you to their friends. This is a fun way to build a worthwhile online presence that benefits your brand name and helps to grow your business.
