Create Facebook Page For Your Business

To create Facebook pages correctly, you will need to sign in on your personal Facebook page to sign up for a Facebook Business Page. 

add facebook page new account

You might have some reservations about providing information from your personal account, but do not stress. This personal account information will NOT be visible to the public. 

Your personal information won’t even be visible on your Facebook business page unless you’d like it to be.

Create Facebook Page Step #1: Sign up

Make sure to go to: facebook.com/pages/create.

The next step to add a Facebook page is to select which type of page you would like to create.

This could either be a business/brand or even set up your page as a community/public figure. 

For our intents and purposes, we’re going to assume that you’ll want to create a Facebook page for your business or brand, in which case go ahead and click the Get Started button to… well,

You’ll be able to complete the add Facebook page process from here. It’s super easy!

Next, fill out your information for your Facebook business page. Enter your business name as your Facebook page name, or use the name that people are likely to search for when trying to find your business.

If you’re wondering about categorizing your business, simply type one or two words that best describe your business, and Facebook will suggest helpful options. 

Before you choose your category…

add-facebook-page-holdup

It is crucial to choose the correct category for SEO purposes… if you want your customers to find you! There are tons of categories to choose from. Here is the never-ending list of categories from Facebook. 

add-facebook-page-categories

If your business happens to fall into more than a single category, that’s okay! You’re allowed to choose up to three, but don’t sweat this step because you can always add more categories to your Facebook business page later on.

This box will expand, and it’s essential that you enter all of your business information. 

It will eventually ask for your business address as well as your business phone number. You can always choose to make this information public or private when working within the add Facebook page parameters.

Next, click “Save,” and Facebook will prompt you with some smart next steps to take to round out and add a Facebook Page for your business. 


You can follow the prompts and be in pretty good shape, or you can stay right here and follow along with us for near Unicorn-level Facebook Business Page perfection. 

Create Facebook Page Step #2: Upload Profile And Cover Photos

Next, you get to add pictures! 

Do not skip this or risk a shoddy and shunned Business Page, respectfully. 

Upload profile and cover images for your Facebook page to create a strong, positive, and lasting first impression. 

Remember that first impressions make the best impressions. 

We know of more than a few ways to automate those warm fuzzies for repeatable results.

With an easy-to-setup FREE MobileMonkey Facebook Messenger autoresponder, you can guarantee every visitor and customer is greeted with a warm welcome greeting message for a good first impression. 

See for yourself, click here for a warm and fuzzy chatbot experience.  

Be sure that the photos you choose are on-brand and are visually identifiable with your business as you work through the page creation process.

You’ll have to upload your profile image first, which will show up in results as you interact with your users. This image will also appear on the top left-hand corner of your Facebook page.

If you indeed have a recognizable brand, it’s an excellent opportunity to use your logo. Or if you happen to be a celeb or public figure, a picture of your mug might do just as well. 

Local businesses should use a high-resolution image that features your signature product or offering. This will help your potential followers and customers recognize your page immediately.

Enjoy this yummy example of a solid Facebook Business page profile and cover photo.

Pro Tip for adding Facebook page images: Your Facebook profile picture will display at 170 x 170 pixels on your desktop version and 128 x 128 pixels on the mobile version. Your image will be cropped in a circle shape, so make sure that you omit critical details from the corners of your image.

From here, it’s straightforward to upload your profile picture, as well as your cover photo.

Your page might look a little threadbare initially but fear not. Your page is not visible to the public just yet. What you see initially is simply a preview. 

Next, you’ll need to create your username, which is also referred to as your vanity URL — this is how you’ll tell people where to find your business page on Facebook.

Usernames for your Facebook business page can contain up to 50 characters — use them wisely! 

Make sure your Username is easy to type, and try to make sure that it’s not too taxing on the noggin’ to remember. Using your business name or some close variation to it is the safest way to go. After that…

Create Facebook Page Step #3: Adding Business Details

You might be a little tempted to add business details later, but it’s a good idea to get that business done right now. 

Enter the appropriate information for your Facebook page “About” section right away, instead of procrastinating. 

Enter your business hours through the Edit Page option at the top menu. Here you can edit all the essential information about your business.

Create Facebook Page Step #4: Write a Brief Business Page Description

Make sure to write a short description that will appear in search results. A couple of sentences will get the job done (a maximum of 255 characters, to be exact). 

Avoid the temptation of being verbose and getting elaborate during this stage. You can add a longer description later on, of course.

How many Facebook pages can I admin?

Are you wondering how to add an admin to your Facebook page? That’s an easy thing to do as well!

Currently, there’s no limit to the number of Facebook pages you can own. 

By now, Facebook happens to be well aware of marketing agencies and their operations. 

Many companies out there in the world specialize in adding Facebook pages, creating and managing Facebook pages, and it’s easy to make oneself the central control of a core admin profile.

If you’re wondering how to manage multiple Facebook pages, that’s easy, too! Making a second Facebook account is also an easy measure to take if you have the ability. However, the best thing to do is create a Facebook Business Manager.

Can you have two Facebook accounts on one phone? 

Well, Facebook doesn’t like this sort of thing, which is why we’re here in the first place. When you add a Facebook page for your business account, you’ll be able to sidestep these operational issues. 

Can you have two business pages on Facebook? 

The answer is a resounding “Yes”!

Create Facebook Page Step #5: Time to Tell YOUR Story

Now that you’ve managed to fill out all the deets as you add your page, it’s time to ramp up your engagement and build what will first be a boutique audience.

Add Facebook Posts

Start thinking of what you’d like to post. Share some valuable and compelling content that is on-brand and exciting. Give free advice and info — avoid being salesy or asking right out the gate (that’s what remarketing is for!). 

You’ll want to make sure to do this BEFORE you start inviting people to like and follow your page for your business. 

You have the option to create your own posts, not to mention share relevant content from thought leadership operating within your industry. People like this sort of thing!

Make sure to follow the steps below to add posts to your page…

All you have to do is click an option within the “Create” box, which will be located at the top of your Facebook business page.

There are also tons of bells and whistles you can add. Adding a Facebook post autoresponder to your Facebook business page is super easy and mind-blowingly useful once you start getting comments and engagement on your Page.

Pin a Post

One cool option you’ll want to take advantage of is adding a pinned post to your Facebook page. 

Is there important information you’re trying to convey to your audience right away? Are you offering an incredible promotion? Highlight some of the excellent and top-notch content that you create during the add Facebook page process. 

You can do all of this with a pinned post! Pinned posts will sit prominently at the very top of your Facebook business page. Just under your cover image, as a matter of fact. 

It’s a great place to provide an attention-grabbing item that will draw your visitors in and make them want to check you out further. 

Start the add Facebook page pinned post-process by scrolling down on your Facebook feed. 

Find an existing Facebook post you would like to highlight, then click the three dots on the post’s top right. From there, all you have to do is click ”Pin to Top of Page,” and you’re all set!

Another great way to build up your audience and drive more traffic and sales is to cross-promote 

There are so many different channels and ways to do this. Just think about where your target audience hangs out, whether on your website, Instagram, or even adding your Facebook page to stickers, coffee cups, and promo swag. 

And then, of course, why wouldn’t you manage them all with a single dashboard-friendly tool like a customer-service 5-star review and retention boosting chatbot like MobileMonkey?

  4. Click “Submit

Now then, you have a lot to learn about Business Manager, but for our purposes, we will jump straight into how to add your Facebook Page to Business Manager.

  1. Go to business.facebook.com
  2. Click the gear icon for “Business Settings.
  1. Go to “Business Assets,” then click “Accounts” and then “Pages.

How to Add Your Facebook Page to Your Website

How to Add a Facebook Page to Instagram

Why? Besides the cross-marketing potential and syncing of powerful multi-channel tools like MobileMonkey OmniChat® chatbot is astronomical compared to any other methods out there.

How to Add My Facebook Page to Messenger

  1. Head over to “General Settings” on your Facebook Business Page
  2. Go to “Messages
  3. Click “Edit” and select the option to allow messages to your page, and then “Save Changes.

You can edit additional settings for your Messenger, but we’re going to take you straight to the good stuff and get you started on a chatbot. Why a chatbot, you ask? Oh, there is so much we could tell you about crazy mad ROI-enhancing hacks, but we’ll go the infographic route.
