How to Setup a Facebook Page for Your Business or Brand

Let's Get Started

Get started by clicking on the button above while logged into your Facebook profile. The “Start Facebook Page” button will take you to https://www.facebook.com/pages/creation/ which is where we will start.

Based on what you are building this Facebook page for, select either “Business or Brand” or “Community or Public Figure” by clicking on the “Get Started” button.

Most pages will fit best under “Business or Brand”.  Use your judgement when selecting the best type of Facebook page to start.

For this example, we are going to build a “Business or Brand” Facebook page.

Once you click “Get Started” you will see the box turn into a form to put in your information to continue setting up your business’ or brand’s Facebook page.

Enter in your brand/business name for the “Page Name”.

Select the most relevant “Category” for your page.

Once you have done that, click on “Continue”.

The next step is to upload your profile picture. The recommended upload size that I use is one of two settings.  The low end is 400px X 400px and the high end is 512px X 512px.  I have found these sizes work not only on Facebook but also on all the other social media platforms. Be sure to checkout the “Download Vault” for a FREE profile picture photoshop template.

After you upload your Profile Picture you need to upload a cover photo.  The overall size of the cover photo should be 820px X 462px. The top 75px and bottom 75px are cropped when in desktop view.  

You can download the free photoshop template in the “Download Vault“.

Now that you have done that you now have a page!
