5 Facebook Upgrades You Can Do Right Away

  1. Put as much relevant information about your company as you can in the “About” and “Info” sections on your fan/business page. People who want to find out more about your company will look up that link. Make sure you include your website URL and a way to contact you.
  2. Use a cover picture that showcases what you do in your business (note: current rules forbid the inclusion of promotional language and contact information on the cover photo)
  3. Get more “likes” by inviting friends (under the Admin section) to like your page. When you get 25 ore more “likes”, you can get a vanity URL that reads “www.facebook.com/your-choice-of-name”, instead of “www.facebook.com/a-long-string-of-numbers”.
  4. Create Events to promote your workshops, teleseminars, webinars, and programs etc., and invite your friends to join them.
  5. Post your classes, products and services on Marketplace, and set it so that “anyone” can see the post. This will help increase your exposure.

  1. Thanks for sharing…I have already tried all except the last…where do I find the Marketplace?

      hi Sherma,
      This is an app – you can probably search for “Marketplace” in FB, then download the app. (I did this so long ago… things seem to always change in FB!)

  2. Are these upgrades suggested for your personal profile or for you fan page?

    • ling says:

      the first 3 are for the fan page, and the last two points, from what I know, are done as your personal profile.
