What you’ll need to set up your Facebook Page
A name for your Page and a blurb about your business
Your Page name can be your business name or another name that people may search for to find your business. Use the About section to tell people a little bit about what your business does.
A profile photo and cover photo
Choose photos that best represent your business. You may use your logo as your profile photo and an image of your store, products, or one from a current marketing campaign as your cover photo. → Learn about image dimensions for Page photos
The action you want people to take when they come to your page
At the top of your Page you can add a call-to-action that directs your Page visitors to do something, like visit your website or call your store. Adding a call-to-action button is as easy as a few clicks. → Learn about adding a call-to-action button to your Page
Once you’ve created your Page…
Publish your Page when it’s complete
