If you want to market your service business, a Facebook business page is a great way to get started. And today we’re going to teach you how to set one up!
By creating a Facebook page for your business, you’re allowing your service business to be easier to find. Not to mention people can easily share your page and your posts to recommend you to others!
1. Log into your Facebook account
The first thing you need to do to set up a Facebook business page to market your service business is log into your account. Now, don’t worry, your personal information won’t be on display once you create the business page.
2. Sign up
Next, click here to create your business page. Give the page a name, select a category for your business, provide a description, and add an image.
After that, they will ask for details such as address and phone number. However, this information can be private if you want and you can choose to show only your city or state.
3. Provide pictures
To market your service business well, you need your Facebook business page to have pictures. So, make sure you prepare a profile and a cover image you can use. The images should be high-quality and relevant to your service business.
Also, make sure the images are in the right size. The profile picture should be 170 x 170 pixels on your desktop and 128 x 128 pixels on your mobile. Make sure all the relevant information is in the middle because it will be cropped to a circle.
The cover picture should be 820 x 312 pixels on your desktop and 640 x 360 pixels on your mobile. The recommended size is 720 x 315 pixels, so keep that in mind.
4. Create a username for your service business
You need a username to market your service business because this is how people will easily find you on Facebook. It can be up to 50 characters long and make sure it’s representative of your business and easy to remember.
5. Provide business details on the page
It’s important to set up the business details for your Facebook business page because this is the first thing people look for. It’s how they learn more about your business!
So, make sure you provide a good description, contact details, location, business hours, and you can even provide a price range and other details.
6. Tell them about you
To market your service business you want people to get to know you and engage with you. That’s why it’s so important that you tell people about you! There’s a section called “About” where you can write a longer description of your business.
Use this section to tell your story! Give it a short headline, be concise and to the point, but talk about what inspires you and what you have to offer, and use a relevant photo or image.
And that’s it! Once you’ve set up your Facebook business page you can start to market your service business by creating posts. The key to success is good content that’s relevant to your audience, so focus on that and advertise your services well.
