Facebook Business Page: How to Create & Set Up Facebook Page for Business?

How to Create a Facebook Business Page?

To share any content on Facebook, you need to have one of the two things- a personal account or page. Both the account and the page can be created for free. Personal accounts are for personal purposes, like sharing family photos, vacation photos, random thoughts and opinions in the form of status. 

Whereas Facebook pages are meant for professional purposes. You can create a page for your business or individual (the way used by politicians, celebrities, athletes, etc.). You can’t create advertisements through personal accounts but can do it with a page. 

Let’s learn how to create a Facebook page:

1. The first step is to Log in to your Facebook account. In the top left, click on the Plus (+) button. 

2. From the dropdown that appears, click on Page.

6. Add a call-to-action button. This can be: 

  • Follow

  • Call Now

  • Get Quote

  • Contact Us

  • Send Message

  • Learn More

  • Send Email

  • Sign Up

  • Use App

  • Play Game

  • Shop Now

  • Watch Video.

When you choose any action button, it will ask you to enter the required link or information. When your audience clicks the button, it will operate accordingly. 

For example, if you are using the Use App button, then the users will be taken to your app on the Play Store. The Learn More button can be used to drive users to the website.
