You must have a personal profile on Facebook before you can set up a Business page.  You will be able to toggle between the two and they will stay entirely separate for the content that you share. 

Watch this short video or follow the written instructions below to get set up

From your personal profile select 'Create' from the top right of your desktop view.  Or if you are on your mobile go into your settings Menu and select Pages then Create.

Once you click the 'Create' button, and select the type of page—Local Business or Place, for example, or Brand or Product. You’ll see a number of fields to fill out, such as your business category, name, and address.

Next, click the Get Started button, and Facebook will guide you through the rest of the setup process, step by step. If you skip any of those steps, you can fill them out later on a new page in the Facebook Welcome section, which only page admins will see.

Choose an attractive and relevant picture for your background and use your logo or your face for the profile picture.  Make sure your description of your business is compelling and clearly explains what you offer.  

Set your opening hours and give your business contact details.

Here's a great example from Cheltenham based luxury shoe boutique Keith Scarrott. 

Tell your story.
Use the About section to fill in the story behind your business. People love to get to know your business in this way.

Invite recommendations.
Whenever possible as you interact with your happiest customers - invite their feedback via your Facebook page and this will boost it's rating.

Edit your Settings.
Take a look through the Settings area to identify any additional features you'd like to add to your page. 

Add a Call to Action Button
Don't forget to select the Call to Action Button that best suits your business. Just hover over the button and it will give you the option to edit.

Add team member so they can help with any enquiries.
From Settings look for 'Page Roles'.  You can add team members by giving their email address and then setting the access level that you're happy with.

Once you have created your business's Facebook page, you should connect it to your Maybe* account - then you will have quick and easy ways to find conversations and engage on a daily basis.

This simple process will walk you through how to do this in seconds.
