Did you know that nearly 74% of consumers cited that they relied on social media to make purchasing decisions? If that isn’t more of a push to get your business’ Facebook page set up, we don’t know what is.

Setting up your page may seem like a headache during your busy days, but all you actually need is a few spare minutes to get things up and going. For Facebook noobs, sometimes it can  take close to an hour, but lucky for you, we’ve put together a quick tutorial video so you can get your Facebook business up and running in a quarter of that time!

On top of what we discussed in the video, here are few other key tips to remember when setting up your page:

The Initial Setup

  • Make sure you are logged into your personal Facebook account. Facebook requires you to  manage your business page through your personal account.

  • Create a captivating bio: state your mission/purpose, what you have to offer, how you stand out from the competition, a fun fact about your business, etc.

  • Make your Facebook URL as similar to your business name as you can.

    • Example: If your business is Spa Oasis, make your URL

      • If your name is not available, try adding a number or your city onto the end (ie:

Cover Image & Profile Picture

  • Cover image dimensions: 828 x 315 pixels

  • Profile picture dimensions: 180 x 180 pixels

About Me Section

  • Fill out as much information as possible. Let your followers get a closer look at your business. It’s the perfect summary for potential clients to understand what your business has to offer (and to show why you’re better than the business down the block)

Inviting Friends

  • Easiest way to get more likes for your business? Invite all your friends! This will increase your page's reach and help you get off the ground.
