Creating a business Facebook Fan page is quite an easy process. Fan pages on Facebook can be used for business, fun, entertainment, or as a marketing channel and tool for your business. Most people refer to Facebook Fan pages as Business pages.

To create a Facebook Fan page you need a Facebook profile and you have to be logged in.  Make sure to have the information regarding your business when you create your Fan page such as content, contact information, images, etc.

Facebook Fan page title

When you create your Business Fan page on Facebook, think about the title you want for the Fan page.  This is very important as you can’t change this later on.  Take some time and pick the title you want carefully as this is what people will see when they are searching Facebook.

Fan page image

Create an eye-catching image that the visitors of your Fan page will find interesting.  You can also include information on your Fan Page image such as what you do, contact information, tag line, etc.  This can help your visitors to see what your business and Fan page is about.

Create your Fan page

When you are ready to create your business fan page, click on the button “Create Page” found on the top left of the “Discover Facebook Pages” page. Select a category of your business Fan page and the title you have created earlier.  You can choose to not make your Fan page publicly visible while you create your Fan page until you have all the information on your Fan page.

Editing your Fan page

To edit information on your business Fan page is very similar to when you edit your Facebook profile.  Make sure that you have uploaded an image for your Fan page and all the information is visible and correct before you start promoting. No one will become a fan of a Fan page that is empty.

Customizing your Fan page

If you would like to customize your business Fan page and add more pages to the Fan page, search for the app “FBML” where you can add more HTML pages to your Fan page. I have found this “app” quite useful especially if you want to create specific landing pages on your Fan page.
