You want to set a facebook page for your small business, and you want to know how to do it because a Facebook business page is very important for any business. It will help you to promote your business to a large audience. It will help you to target your niche and even you get a lot of flexibility in terms of location target. It will take a whole day to speak about FB business advantages. On Facebook, you can add many features that are not easy to implement on your website. You can run promotions, run many contests related to your product, can build custom page and also can manage a small e-commerce shop. And Facebook provides all these features free. Even if you go for paid promotions, price remains very small compared to other ad platforms.
Without going further deep, I give you quick tips about things that you require for a Facebook business page.
- A Facebook profile
2. A unique name for your page, it may be your business name.
3. A profile photo and a cover photo.
That’s all, you are ready to make your first business page.
So, as I said, you need a Facebook profile to make a business page but don’t become nervous about mixing your personal information with business information. Both are conceptually separate. You will have complete freedom of using your personal profile separate and business page separate. For your business page, you need to select one admin. By default, it is you. But if you are not going to work on it, you have to set one admin or you can set editor or moderator based on their work allocation. I will explain it later, how to set or change admin or editor. For now lets continue with our goal of how to create a Facebook business page.

You can follow one more way to create it.
- From your Facebook profile page, click the Pages header in the left-side navigation.
- Next, click the Create a Page button, and you will be redirected to next page, select the type of page–Local Business or Place.
After clicking on ‘Create a page’, a new window will open with industry types. These industry types are local business or place, Company, Organization or Institution, Brand or product, Artist, Brand or Public figure, Entertainment, Cause or Community.
When you choose your industry it will ask more details about it. You can refer to the image. If you choose local business, it asks you about page name. This is your page name which indicates your business name; you can give your shop name like “Shine Car cleaner” or “Newlife Pet Shop”. Then you can choose a category. Facebook shows options for your category.
Give the correct category because it helps Facebook to know about your business and then Facebook help you to reach correct audience. If you are Blogger, artist or want to create a page related to your profession like model, dancer, Musician etc, you can choose Artist, Band or Public Figure option and Facebook will show you mare option. In next option add a profile picture and cover photo and click OK… Valla… Your page is ready for your business promotion.
