What should my Facebook business page look like?

Facebook business page and group differ radically from a regular user account. Their main task is drawing new customers to your website. Before creating a page for a commercial project consider the following factors:

  • Title.

When visiting your Facebook page, a user has to understand at first sight what goods, services, and information you offer. The title must be short and memorable so that users could find you easily in Facebook search. Its search system is similar to Google, webpages are also ranked by relevance. Short titles are easier to remember; do not place the entire list of your company’s goods and services in the header.

  • Design.

Design of a business page should catch the eye. A user has to recognize your webpage at first sight. Do not make the page cover too bright, it makes the title fade and be difficult to read.

Use the company logo as a profile picture, and fill the cover according to the subject of the page. Pick the main corporate colors and use them to the max.

  • Applications.

Pay special attention to applications – they are found on the left of a business Facebook page. Add tools that could be useful to your potential clients. It could be a loan calculator, a converter, entertaining apps.

  • Content.

Your followers will regularly see your updates in their news feed. Do your best to make them interested. Inspire users to like your posts or share them with their friends. Do not load the page with advertisements of your brand, it would rather repel users. Focus on publishing fun facts, how-to’s, workshops, entertaining content. This way you’ll get more shares and likes. 

Use the Facebook page to announce promos and competitions that are held on the company website. Hold quizzes and prize drawings. If you also have a corporate blog, make sure to share its publications on Facebook. Do not hesitate to share someone else’s records, monitor pages of authoritative companies.

  • Target audience.

Determine your target audience – age, sex, interests, and location of your potential customers. Facebook gives an opportunity to see these data. Search for relevant groups, follow other users, and invite users to follow your page.
