I'll have to get back to this. I made a FB page 6 mos or so ago and I have a company page that has nothing on it yet. Made that couple months ago. Something is going on with facebook?!?!? Exactly how this is going to work not sure yet. If we all become friends with each other or fans of each others company pages? We should be able to get all this figured out! God blessed me with some work so I'll Get back to this. I'll be sending requests to the pages tonight when I get back! - Mike

Step 1: Create an Business Page
To setup a business page, log in to Facebook and then go to www.facebook.com/pages/create.php. Fill out the requested information and then click the “Create Page” button. The next screen will take you to your blank Facebook business page.

Step 2: Insert a Logo
Hover your mouse over the question mark place holder on your business home page. A link called “Change Picture” will appear. Click the link, then choose “Upload a Picture”. Follow the instructions to upload your company logo.

Step 3: Provide a Business Description
In the left hand column, you will see a link that says “Write something about [Your Business Name].” Click on this link and include one sentence that describes your business.

Step 4: Add Business Information
Click on the “Info” tab and then click “Edit Information.” Fill out all of the fields and save the changes.

Step 5: Become a Fan
You’ll see a button that says “Become a Fan.” Click on the button and become your business page’s first fan.

(Steps 6 – 12 will require you to click the “Edit Page” link below your logo to take you to the editing page. You can edit each section by clicking the pencil in the right corner of the box.)

Step 6: Change Your Wall Settings
You’ll need to decide how you want to set your wall settings, but my suggestion is to set the “Default View for Wall” to “Only Posts by Page” and uncheck the “Fans can write or post content on the wall” box. This will eliminate any unwelcomed comments to your business page.

Step 7: Remove Reviews
Remove the “Reviews” application. While I’m not a compliance expert, everything I’ve read says that accepting a testimonial of any kind is a big no-no. Avoid this compliance infraction by disabling reviews.

Step 8: Add Your Blog
If you write a blog, you’ll want to add it to your Notes tab. When you edit the Notes application, you’ll see an “Import a Blog” link. Enter your RSS feed address and your blog will automatically be posted to your business page’s Notes tab and Wall whenever a new post is added.

Step 9: Add Videos
If you have a short video (less than 20 minutes) that you would like to include, you can upload it to your business page using the “Upload Video” option in the “Video” application. You must have the file on your computer to do this as this does not work with video sharing sites. If you have a video on a sharing site like YouTube, Vimeo or Viddler, you can post the video link directly to your business page’s wall to share with your fans.

Step 10: Add Events
If you host public events, follow the instructions on the “Events” application to add your event to your business page. You’ll have the option to choose who can view and respond to the events as well as whether or not you want to publicize the event on Facebook.

Step 11: Publish Your Page
Change the “Published Status” under “Settings” to “Published (publically visible).” Once you save changes, your page will be public and searchable on Facebook.

Step 12: Get Your Badge
On the bottom right column, you’ll see the “Get your Badge” link under “Promote with Facebook Badge.” Click the link and follow the instructions to generate the html code so that you can include a badge on your website to promote your business page. Even if you don’t want a badge, click on this link so that you can write down the URL for your business page so that you can share the link later.

Step 13: Share with Your Facebook Contacts
Go back to your business home page. On the bottom left column, you’ll see a “Share” button. Choose the “Send a Message” tab and send a message to your Facebook contacts asking them to become a fan of your page. Fans of your business will receive updates on their wall when you add new content to your page, allowing them to stay in contact with your business.

     Alright gentleman, if you aren't on Facebook yet, you are already losing money. Seriously, I got an Evansville roof cleaning job the other day from a woman I don't even know, because one of her facebook friends became a fan of our Roof Cleaning Business Page

     The people we went to school with are now business owners, property managers, CEO's, VP's, Purchasing Agents, Etc.

Click on this link, and add us a friend and become a fan. We can all help each other out with this one.

Facebook Roof Cleaning Page

The facebook link doesn't work unless you're already a member. So, let's find out who's a facebooker.
