October 1, 2017

The Creation
1.  Open Facebook. 
2.  Click               It's on the top-right side of the Facebook page. Select this drop-down menu.
3.  Click the Create Page button. This is in the middle of the drop-down menu.
4.  Select a page type. Click one of the following boxes:
          -Local Business or Place - Select this option if your business is small, locally-owned, and/or not  part of a chain.
           -Company, Organization or Institution - Select this option if you're creating the page for a large business branch or institution.
5.  Enter your business' information. 
           -If you selected Local Business or Place, then enter your business name, category, address, & phone number. 
           -If you selected Company, Organization or Institution, instead select a business category & enter your business name.
6.  Click the Get Started button. This will create your business page & take you to it.

The Profile
7.  Add a cover photo. 
Click Add a Cover in the top-left corner of the cover photo window at the top of the page, then click an upload option in the drop-down menu & select a photo. This will both make your business page more welcoming & make the page seem more complete.
8.  Add a profile picture. 
Click the camera icon in the lower-right corner of the profile picture box, then click an upload option in the drop-down menu & select a photo. As with the cover photo, a profile picture makes your business page more attractive.

11.  Click Home. This tab is in the upper-left side of the page. This will take you back to your page's home page, saving your changes in the process. Your business page is now set up & ready to go.
