My goal is to ensure that the small business owner, move from curiosity and search in the social mass media realm to results and value. Simply one of this series, Let me cover Facebook, but stay fine-tined for more parts two, three, and 4 on Twitter, LinkedIn, and writing a blog.
For a tiny business, there are few excuses not to have a Facebook Page. Above 500 million people have Facebook and 250, 1000 more join each day. It helps business build brand awareness.

How to for Beginners (skip this section if your business already has a Fb Fan Page)
Should you be not on Facebook, you require to first create a personal profile. You can do that by going to Facebook and completing your name, email, password, sexuality, birthday, and all of the other required information. It’s good to add a picture too so that folks identify you and “add you as a friend”.
Once you’ve placed up your profile, you can create a site for your business called a Facebook page. You can do so by hitting “Ads and Pages” that can be found on the left hand side of your Facebook Home Web page.
Then click “+Create Page”. This will prompt you to create a “Community Page” or “Official Page”. For anyone who is a tiny business owner, click on the “Local business” button under the “Official Page” section and enter the name of your business where it says “Page name: “. Examine the container that says you are the official representative of the page and click “Create Official Page”. Finally, verify it’s the recognized page by clicking “create page, ” and then, in less than a few minutes you’ve created a Facebook Page for your business.
Then click on the “Info” case near to the top of the screen, and click “edit information. ” This will likely prompt you to enter your company’s “basic info, ” “detailed info, ” and “contact info”.
Once you’ve finished completing out that information, click the box to the left that says “Write Something About (YOUR BUSINESS)”. In this section write a good, short explanation of your business and provide a link aimed at your website and any other relevant sites (blog, twitter, and so on. ). If you’d like to edit what you wrote, click on the pencil button in the upper right corner.
I would then recommend posting a few status updates. Spread them out over the few times, and provide useful information such as good links to relevant articles. Likewise add company photographs of your products, services, and team.
The idea for doing this before contacting people to “like” your webpage is so that folks get a feel for the sort of content you will provide on the page. If perhaps you have a relatively blank Facebook Page, people might not exactly click on the “like” button when they are asked to join it.
