Create your Facebook Business Page

You mean Facebook is useful for something else other than playing Mafia Wars and Farmville? Absolutely! Take advantage of the parts of Facebook that can help you get you and your business out there.

In order to set up a Facebook business page (the name has changed numerous times-Fan Page, Like Page), you first need to have a personal profile. When you go to Facebook.com, look under the sign in box and you will see a place to click on ‘create a page’. Then you can decide if you want to create a business page (Official), a group page or community page. Look in Facebook help if you have any questions about which type of page you should set up. After you have made your choice, then simply follow the prompts and get started.

Once you’ve gotten all of your personal and business information filled in, you can look around and see what Facebook apps might be useful to you. There are tabs for ‘discussions’, ‘reviews’, ‘blogs’ and you can look around and discover these gradually, when you get on other people’s pages and see what apps they’re using.

One app I would recommend, which is very useful, is Networked Blogs. Just type Networked Blogs in the search box on your Facebook page and you will be taken to their page, where you can input information about any blogs you want to follow, or enter your blog information and ‘syndicate’ it to broadcast onto the pages you desire. You have to hunt for that ‘syndicate’ button (towards top middle of page), because once you put in the blog’s info, you will have to click on ‘syndicate’ and answer questions as to where you want to broadcast your blog to (personal page only, business & personal page). From here you can also connect with your Twitter account. A ‘blog’ tab will be added to your page and from here you can also follow and read blogs from others. So with one blog entry, you can broadcast across your personal page, your business page(s) and Twitter.

  1. Hi I am Brit and I am a good friend of Cindy! I am also almost 6 foot tall and usually have a hard time finding close that fit…meaning that everything is very short on me especially dresses. Since I like to waer dresses here in the dessert heat I am always looking to find one.
    Thanks to Cindy who has recently made a dress that I bought a bit longer for me by adding a border. I now can say dress shopping is a bit easier for me since I know Cindy can transfer my dresses to a perfect fit!
    Thank you so much Cindy and I can really recomment her to anyone!
