Wondering how to create a Facebook page? Everyone is on Facebook. Okay, while that might be a slight exaggeration, it isn’t too far off from the truth. With over a billion active users, Facebook has a larger population than nearly every country on Earth. So if your blog is not on Facebook, you are missing out.
While it can feel intimidating to create a Facebook page for your blog, it doesn’t have to. In fact, it is pretty easy to do. To help you, follow our step-by-step guide below.
To do this, start here. Now, you will notice there is not an option for bloggers, but don’t feel left out. In general, it is suggested that bloggers choose brand or product. However, if you have other media presence, you might choose artist, band, or public figure. And if your blog ties into your business, you might want to opt for a business page.
Once you click on the type of page you want, you will be given a dropdown menu of various categories. If you are looking to promote a blog, website is a good choice. If your blog ties into something else, such as a clothing brand, you might do better going with the more specific category.
You want this to be consistent across all platforms, so make sure this matches what you have on your blog and any other social media sites where you have profiles. While it can be fun to get creative, this just isn’t the right opportunity for that.
If you as a personality are a big part of your blog, a photo of you with some branding thrown in is great. If not, opt for your logo. Don’t have a logo? Now is the time to get one. It may cost to have it designed but you will get a lot out of it.
While this can also tie into your logo, it doesn’t have to. In fact, we recommend you use something promotional, such as a photo that can be printed and used as a coupon, something related to a series you are publishing, or really anything that is promotional. While your profile photo will mostly stay the same, your cover photo will change a lot.
And just like that, you have a page. While more goes into making a Facebook page successful, these five steps are all it takes to get started.
