How to create a basic facebook business Page

A Facebook business page can be a valuable asset to your business. It can direct people to your website. Or, you can book appointments right within the Facebook platform. Here are some basic beginner steps to set up a Facebook page for your business.

before we get started creating your business page there are a few things you need to have set aside beforehand:

  • A personal Facebook account. Facebook will not allow you to make a business page unless you have a personal account.

  • A profile picture and a cover picture (preferably of your business or related pictures of your business). The standard size for a profile picture is 180 x 180 and the standard size for a cover photo is 820 x 312

  • You will also need to have a name picked out for your page

Once we have everything required, we can begin creating your Facebook business page

  1. Log in to your personal Facebook Account.

  2. Click on “Create”  in the upper right corner of your page

  1. From the dropdown menu that appears click “Page”

  1. Click the “Get Started” button under the “Business or Brand” option.

  1. Type in your page name then choose the category that best describes your business.

  1. Navigate to the profile and cover photos that you put aside earlier. And upload them when prompted

Once this step is completed your business page is now created

  1. Click on the about section on the left side of the page click on “create a username” (usually the name of your business or the name you chose for the business page)


  1. Fill in as much information on the about section as possible this makes it easy for people to find your page.

  1. click the “page info” section in the upper right side of your page. There are explanations next to each option that makes it easy to follow and fill out this section.
