How To Create a Facebook Page in three steps.
- Step 1
Go on your Facebook personal account, hopefully, you have one already. Well, if you don’t, you will have to create one. You cannot have a Facebook page without first having a personal Facebook account. Creating a Facebook account is free, and it’s as easy as taking a picture with your phone. Click here to create your account.
Now you have a Facebook account, go on the Menu bar at top right of your phone or tablet, click on it and different options will appear, one of which is “pages”. Click on pages.
- Step 2
You are one step to having your own branded Facebook page! Once you click on pages, you would find a “Create” option, click on that, then click start!
Now you need a Facebook page name. What name would you want to give your page? Add your page name. E.g BeInspired Show. Then go over to next.
Your next step is category. BeInspired Show category is personal blog, yours could be Product/Services or shopping & Retail, depending on what fits your brand. You can choose more than one category. Oya na, unto the next.
Website. If you have a website, this is where you link it up with your new page. You can as well skip this if you don’t. However, there is no excuse not to have a website in today’s digital world.

Your profile picture and your cover photo.
It’s always beautiful to use your brand’s logo as profile pictures, it aids your SEO (how people find you online). If you don’t have a logo, create one with Canva. Click on add picture and upload from your phone’s gallery. Just make sure the pictures are in suitable size that match.
- Step 3
Your page is alive already! Feel free to jump now! But wait, let’s do a thorough job. Go to the menu bar of your new page, click “edit page”. Here you have the opportunity to add more features and optimize your new page. This includes your location, description of your brand or business, email and phone contact plus other details.
Once you are done here, you only just need to send invite links to your friends so they can like and follow your page.
When you have 25 followers and above, then you can create your username, a unique name used to generate your page link.
Viola! Congratulations on your new Facebook business or Fan page!!!
Three reasons you need a Facebook page:
1. Your personal Facebook account is limited to 5,000 friends only. While there are no limits to how many followers you can have on your Facebook page.
2. You can only run ads on your Facebook page, not on your Facebook personal account. By promoting your page, product or services through advertising, you have the opportunity to reach new audiences and get more customers and followers.
3. Consider Facebook a large online market, where you can sell your product and services to customers across the globe.
