Guide to Create a Facebook Fan Page

Organizations, and businesses are now using Facebook to promote their brands and products. If you're a start up entrepreneur, why not try it out! You get to reach out to a large network in a short amount of time. I've seen people using it to their advantage, and it worked out so well for them! Well, maybe you won't get orders, but at least you get exposure. Here's a simple (girls') guide to create your Facebook fan page:

You'll be prompt to this Facebook page:

  1. Select your category
  2. Type the name you want to give your page
  3. Click "create page"
  4. You can choose not to make the page public until you've decided of the right moment. 
You can then add information about your company, notes, pictures, and create events. Personally, I find it difficult to work around with the fan page, it's not very user friendly. I'm a bit embarrassed to say that it took me ages to find out how to get the boxes on the left side bar!

On the tab area, click the arrow and add "boxes". Then select the tabs you want to move by clicking "move to wall tab".

Import notes from external blog
You can also import notes from an external blog, such as Blogspot or Wordpress. This is simple, go to Notes tab of your Facebook fan page, and click "Import a blog" on the right hand sidebar.

Fan box widget
Promote your website or blog with a Facebook fan box widget. Under edit page, select "Promote with a fan box" on the right hand sidebar.

Hope these help!
