Video: How to Setup a Facebook Business Page – Graticle Design

 

Video Transcription

Hi, this is Shawn Hooghkirk with Graticle. We’re a web design and development agency.

Today I want to show you how to setup a Facebook Business Page for your brand or company. I’m going to do a basic setup so that when you’re finished watching this video, you’re able to create one yourself.

First, you’ll need to head over to www.facebook.com/pages/create to see the page I’m looking at.

This process is fairly self explanatory.You just want to click on the appropriate category (Local Business or Place, Company, Organization or Institution, Brand or Product, Artist, Band or Public Figure, Entertainment, Cause or Community). Once you click on one of these categories, it will let you drill down further by giving you sub-categories. If you’re not seeing the sub-category you were looking for, try clicking on another category and searching there.

I’m going to click Company or Organization, and the sub-category of Computers/Technology. I’m also going to name my page “Bob’s Computer Co.” I’ll then agree to the terms and then click Get Started.

The next page is where you’re going to add a basic description for your page along with your website’s URL (if you have one). There are two other questions, and after you click the correct radio button, click Save Info to continue onto the next step.

The step is where you’ll add your Profile Picture for your page. Typically you’ll want this to be an easy to recognize icon or logo for your brand. The simpler the better. This image will be shrunken down depending on what you’re doing (commenting, etc.) later on.

On the next step you’ll want to add your page to your Favorites. This adds your page to the sidebar of Facebook so you can always come back to it easily.

Now that you have the page created, the first thing you’ll want to do is Like you page by clicking the Like button. That way people who are connected to you can see that you Like the page. You can also add a Cover photo now. This image will be the masthead at the top of your page. With the masthead you can add more detail and really showcase your brand or company.

Here’s an example of our Facebook Page to show you what a Cover Photo and Profile Image will look like: http://s.graticle.com/zjit

Next you’ll want to click “Update Page Info.” Here you’ll want to go line-by-line through each of the items until you’ve either filled it out, or decided that piece of information isn’t necessary for your page.

That’s about it. That will get your company online with a Facebook Business Page. If you find that it takes too much time and you’d rather have someone else take care of it for you, we can setup your page, design both your Profile and Cover photo, and even make updates for you. If that sounds like something you’d like to do, give us a call at (360) 450-3711 and we’ll help you out. Have a great day.

Shawn is a delight to work with. He meets deadlines on time and always gives a heads up when he foresees that there may be delay.

Shawn has a strong design aesthetic and was easily able to convey a fresh and modern portrayal of our brand in all of the pieces that he has worked on.

Best of all, I love that I can go to him for advice on a project that I haven’t found a solution for yet. Shawn makes a great teammate to brainstorm a solution—one that will work for your business—and design goals.

I worked with Shawn on my company’s website and he was very helpful and generous with his knowledge and time. He was responsive when I had issues or questions. The input he provided on concepts and trends that make some sites better or more visible than others was great as well. I would feel good referring Graticle to others and was pleased with the services they provided to us.
