When you set up a Facebook page, there are two phases involved – preparation and actual set up.  This article covers both.

Set up Facebook Page (Phase 1): Prepare 

If you are looking for a step by step instruction on  how to set up Facebook page, this article is not about that. There are many blogs written on that topic. In fact, THAT is the easy part.
First, prepare.
The questions in the infographic below serve as your guide and will also save you time setting up your Facebook page.
When you read past the infographic, you will find  more information on setting up your business page and about claiming your vanity URL which Facebook now calls as Facebook web address. That is what your page is anyway. It’s a mini-website hosted by Facebook.

Set up Facebook Page (Phase 2): Roll up your Sleeves 

Now you have all the information you need to fill out your Facebook page, what’s next?

  1. Head over to Facebook and set up your business page. Optimize your Facebook content by  using niche-related  keywords for your business.
  2. You can either save your business page for later, if you want to sit on it first; or you may select, “Publish.”
  3. When you have filled it up with your optimized content, claim your Facebook web address , a.k.a. vanity URL. This warning will appear once you go through the process so take heed before you click “Confirm.”
