When Facebook Was First Created about a Million Years Ago, It Was Simple

But it’s grown into a beast—and even creating a page can be confusing, especially for business owners who may not use Facebook personally.

But never fear! In this walkthrough, we’ll take you step-by-step through the creation process for a business Facebook page.

For most of our readers, it makes the most sense to make a Local Business Facebook page, but, if you’re in the mid-market space, you might want to consider setting yourself up as a corporation (especially if you have multiple outlets.)

The most important thing you can do here is to NOT set up multiple Facebook pages just to fit into a particular category! You’ll confuse people who are looking for you—they won’t know which page is the real you, which one they’re supposed to interact with, or which page to follow. In the vast majority of cases, one page is sufficient!

Watch this video to learn how to set up a Facebook business page for your small business in a few simple steps.
