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

You can make sure people only see your Page when it’s finished by keeping it unpublished while you’re creating it. You can change these details in your Settings tab any time.
