How To Create A FaceBook Page For Your Blog

Do you want to promote your website on one of the biggest social media websites? I do, and I did just that. As of April 3, 2017, there are over 1.86 billion worldwide monthly active Facebook users. This is a 17 percent increase year over year. To see the complete breakdown of what Facebook is accomplishing see this link below.

Facebook Statistics

FaceBook does not let you advertise a business, but you can post it as a Fan page on your personal Facebook. I have my personal FaceBook, then I have a FaceBook that I use for “Adventures Of Blogging”, so this is the one I set mine on. This page that you create will show up to the right of your Facebooks home page.

3. Remember to add a short description about what your blog is about & enter the URL (web address) of your blog in the Page Tips area. There you will find additional tips to help build your page. 

4. Next, you’ll want to upload a profile picture. It is best to go with a photo at least 500×500 pixels. This can be a photo of yourself, your logo or anything that will represent your website/blog. You will need to upload a cover photo for your page. The cover photo should be 851×315. Pro Tip: If you don’t have an image, you can always make one for FREE using Canva, like I did above.

5. You will create a username under your profile photo which can only contain alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9) or a period (“.”).

6. Add a button – it will give you many options to choose from (See Below)

Make it easy for people to take action with Your Website. Choose the button you want to add to your Page, and where you’d like to send people when they click it.
