I’ve talked quite a bit about Facebook Fan Pages in this blog.  Today, I’m going to teach you how to set one up.  Once your page is set up, you can scroll through the blog and find important information about how to use your Fan Page.

Let’s get started with setting the page up.  Go to Facebook and click on “Create a Page for a Celebrity, Band or Business.”

Now you have to choose the type of Fan Page you want to create. If you run your own business, you will choose “Local Business or Place.”  If you’re an affiliate marketer, you will select “Brand or Product.” The exception to this is for affiliate marketers who have created an LLC.  If you have actually formed a business, you can choose “Local Business or Place.”

Once you choose what type of page you have, you need to choose a category and name your page.    If I’m using my page to sell diet pills, I might name the page “Discount Diet Pills.”  On the other hand, if I have my own business, I will use my business name.

Then, you have to agree to the Facebook Pages Terms, and click “Get Started.”

Now you’ll have to sign in with an existing Facebook account, or create a new one.  If you already have an account, select “I already have a Facebook account” and enter your email address and password and click “Log in.”  if you don’t already have an account, you will need to input some information and create an account.

Once you sign in or set up your account, you will be taken to your Facebook page.  The first thing you need to do is upload an image.  Select a company logo or a picture that is related to the products you market.

Once you find the picture, click “Upload an Image,” and make your selection.

Then, click “Edit Info.”

From there, you will enter your company overview, about section, description, product list and more.  We will give you some great tips for optimizing this section in the next post.  For now though, enter your information and click “Save changes.”

Now you have a Facebook Fan Page.

    I have a couple of small companies, but I never thought about putting them on a facebook page. Thanks for the suggestion. By the way I also have affiliate links on my sites. Thanks… Danny

  2. Cynthia Becker

    Setting up a fan page is a good idea, but I would like to set up CPV to create popup for this page to popup on web pages. It is my signup page for boogie text. What do I need to do?
    Cynthia

  3. Bjarne Breilid

    Anthony, I admire your enthusiasm as well as your abilities, Now, if only I had some of your knowledge (abilities would be allright too) so that I might be able to start benefitting from my bumbling efforts and eventually become a successful business person – no, not like you, but at least I’d like to be able to bring in some supplementary income and maybe even be able to go back to Norway and look for some of your own relatives.

    Keep up your good work!
    Bjarne Breilid

So I really do want to learn how to use this tool.

Friends are getting on my personal…but I don’t think very many people are connecting to the business one. Thank you for any and all your help.

    Thanks

  46. Fred Pattison

    I would definitely like to hear more on Facebook training. Including what product you should put down to promote. I have no passions, but am a jack of all trades, out of necessity, master of none. I don’t have time to do the things I like very much, due to taking care of everyone else. What to choose as a niche or product? What do I name a website, (is that a landing page?), when the products I try to promote may change? I’m supposed to build a website either with software that I haven’t a clue as to what the terms of choices are geek to me. Or pay someone to build me a website when I haven
    ‘t a clue as to what to tell them I need. Anyone else have these troubles?

  47. Warren Shepherd

    DO YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT FACEBOOK FAN PAGES??” Yes, I want to learn more about “Facebook fan pages. I am working to learn all I can and that is one of the items on my list.

  49. Sharon Davidson

    This is great! I know nothing about how to maneuver on Facebook, so I’m very uncomfortable when I try to use it. So I don’t. Every littlev pieceof advice or tidbit I can get is much appreciated

  54. Steven Surace

    Love to learn more about Facebook Fan page. I have one setup, but would love to know how to get additional traffic from others that are not my friends on Facebook. Thanks!

  55. Alisa Hill

    I have 6 Fan pages created for my company and clients. I would like to know how to create more traffic to those pages and increase the fan base. If you run ADs on that page more than likely they are competitive. I have used competitive filters and more. I do some business people increase their CPC without spending money that we haven’t earned? From that old adage “You have to spend money to make money” stinks because in this day and age with such comptetive technology we can’t afford to spend as much for the exposure of the ADs we need to populate for a successful campaign.

  56. Dan B

    Yes, more more more info please. What V. Brown says how to get more exposure & how to increase interest to get more fans. Thank you

  57. Allen Blankenship

    Hope to hear from you. Best Wishes, Marilyn Lavins

    So delighted to hear from you. I’m pretty sure I have a facebook page, will double check. My main concern is the webinars – having trouble understanding as the message does not line up with what you are saying and eventually everything being said is garbled.
