I wanted to make a Facebook page for our new company, Locadium, and I thought this would be a perfect way to show small business owners how they can add a new business to Facebook. So without further ado here’s:

How to add a business to Facebook:

1.Go to the How To Set Up A Facebook page on Facebook.com
It can be found at https://www.facebook.com/business/learn/set-up-facebook-page
In order to add your business you’ll need the following:
– A name for your page
– A blub about your business
– A profile photo – Displays at 170×170 pixels on desktop, 128×128 pixels on smartphones and 36×36 pixels on most feature phones. It will be cropped to fit a square so use an image   that looks good as a square
– A cover photo – Displays at 820×312 pixels on desktop, 640×360 pixels on smartphones. It must be a minimum of 399×150 pixels.
– A call to action (e.g. go to website, call, etc.)

2. Click “Create a Page”
Select “Local Business or Place”

Create a Page on Facebook


3.Enter Your Business Information into “Local Business or Place” Box
Enter Local Business Information on Facebook










You can enter Page Name (Business Name), Page Category, Street Address and Phone Number. Enter as many fields as possible. The click the blue “Get Started” button.

4.Fill Out Your New Facebook Business Page

You will be taken to an empty New Business Page where you can add your photos, user name, call to action, business description, etc.
