14 January 2023

Financial planners, are you ready to get started on Facebook? Whether you’re new to the platform or just looking to improve your presence, this guide will walk you through the steps of creating a professional Facebook page for your business.

Step 1: Create a personal Facebook account

Before you can create a business page, you’ll need to have a personal Facebook account. If you don’t already have one, go to www.facebook.com and click “Create New Account”. You’ll be prompted to enter your name, email or mobile phone number, password, date of birth, and gender. Once you’ve filled out all the required fields, click “Sign Up” to create your account.

Step 2: Set up your business page

Now that you have a personal Facebook account, it’s time to create your business page. To do this, click on the down arrow in the top right corner of your home page and select “Create” from the drop-down menu. From the “Create” menu, select “Page”. You’ll be given the option to choose the type of page you want to create. Select “Business or Brand” and click “Get Started”.

Step 3: Fill out your page’s information

Once you’ve selected “Business or Brand” as the type of page you want to create, you’ll be taken to a form where you can enter your business’s name, category, and contact information. Be sure to fill out all the fields accurately and thoroughly, as this information will be visible to your customers.

Step 4: Add a profile and cover photo

Your profile and cover photos are the first thing people will see when they visit your page, so it’s important to choose images that represent your business well. To add a profile photo, click on your page’s profile picture and select “Change Profile Picture”. You’ll be given the option to upload a photo from your computer or choose one from your Facebook photos. To add a cover photo, click on your page’s cover photo and select “Change Cover”. Again, you’ll be given the option to upload a photo from your computer or choose one from your Facebook photos.

Step 5: Set up your page’s settings

Now that your page is set up and looking good, it’s time to customize the settings to make sure it’s running smoothly. To access your page’s settings, click on the “Settings” tab in the top right corner of your page. From here, you can customize a variety of settings including your page’s visibility, notifications, and messaging preferences.

Step 6: Optimize your page for SEO

Now that your page is set up and running smoothly, it’s important to make sure it’s optimized for search engines. One way to do this is by including relevant keywords in your page’s “About” section and in the titles and descriptions of your posts. You should also consider including a meta description, which is a short summary of your page that appears in search engine results.

Step 7: Engage with your audience

Now that your page is up and running, it’s time to start engaging with your audience. This can include posting updates, responding to comments and messages, and sharing relevant content. The more active you are on your page, the more likely it is that people will continue to follow and engage with your business.
