Once you have logged in, you can follow the below-mentioned steps to make a business page.

Create a Facebook Business Page


1) Sign Up and Create an Account

Go to the website.

You will be taken to a page where you will get two options.

Select the type of page you are planning to create.

It can be about a business or a brand and even a community or a public figure.

Let’s assume that the main goal is to create a business page.

Hence, click on the get started button present in the business or brand section.

Now enter your business name and choose your category.

For this, type one or two words of your category and Facebook will provide you with the suggestions.

The majority of the times you will be able to find your category in the suggestions.

After selecting the category, other boxes will appear asking for your name, contact information and other details.

You will also get the option to make your personal information public on your page or just display your location.

Once done with all these steps, you have to click on continue.

By doing so, you are accepting the terms and conditions relating to it.


2) Insert Images

The next important step in this procedure is to upload profile images and cover pictures on your business page.

Photographs catch the attention of the audience and help in establishing an impression.

Hence, use the most suitable images that relate to your brand.

Profile image can be your brand logo or anything that represents your business.

Add a Cover Photo

This image will appear with the name or the brand in the search results.

It also appears on the top left corner of the business page.

If your brand is an established one using a logo is the best option.

If a famous public figure is related to your brand, using their image can be an option and if you are a local business, then using the image of your prime products can help people recognize your company.

A Facebook profile picture displays 170*170 pixels on a desktop and 128*128 pixels on a mobile phone.

Once you have selected an appropriate profile picture click on “Upload Profile Picture” and your image will get displayed.

Now for a cover image, one needs to be very considerate as this is one of the most prominent pictures of your business page.

On the desktop, this image displays 820*312 pixels, and on the mobile phone, this displays 640* 360 pixels.

Choose a cover photo that captures the essence of your brand and highlights the key elements.

Once you have selected the image to upload, just click on the “Upload Cover Photo” button.

Now you have created the basic structure of the page.
