How to create a Facebook Page (visual guide)

Having a Facebook Page is a great way to showcase your business. You can connect with current and potential customers, upload your products and services to a Facebook Page Shop and use that as a base from which to advertise on Facebook. 

All Facebook Pages need to be attached to a private Facebook Profile (this is a Facebook requirement).  You will be able to access your Facebook Page/s and Groups (if you choose to create or join groups) all from your private profile. You can have multiple business pages attached to your private profile and toggle between them all. You can also add others as admins or editors to your Facebook Page.

How to create a Facebook Page

Step 1. – Log into your Facebook Private profile and in the top right-hand area of the blue top bar select “create”.

Step 2. – Select either “Business or brand” or “Community or public figure” and then select the relevant “Get Started” button.

Step 3. – Enter the business or brand name, and then select a category of business. When you enter your category, Facebook will drop down a list of suggestions for you to choose from. If you do not find what you want there, try using a different name for the category.

Step 4. – Enter your address and your phone number (optional). You can elect to not show your full address, only the town/city,  and region, by ticking the box at the bottom of this section. 

Step 5. – Upload a profile photo.  Facebook advises that profile photos with logos or text work best if uploaded as a png file type. Dimensions of 320×320 pixels are said to be optimal for profile photos.

Facebook Page cover photos must be at least 400 wide by 150 tall pixels.

Step 9. – Scroll down to “Assign a new Page role” section and fill out the details of who you wish to add to your Facebook Page. You can search by name (works best if they are on your private profile friends list) or their email address they use to sign in to Facebook. 

Then select the role you wish them to have. Admin gives them the same permissions that you as the Facebook Page owner has. For this reason, many opt to add editors instead of admins as it is the next level down from Owner or Admin.
