Create a Facebook Page

A key part of being able to run Facebook advertising is having a Facebook Page for your business. Don’t have one? No problem. This guide will walk you through the process step by step.

Before we get started, there is one pre-requisite: You must have a personal Facebook account. If you’ve got one of those, move on, if not, swing by https://www.facebook.com and set one up, then come back here.

Have a personal Facebook account now? Great!

You’ll also need a few more things to be able to complete your business page setup.

  • Your business name and description.
    • Use your real business name whenever possible.
    • Write a short description of your business that you can use to fill out the About section of your business page.
  • A profile photo for your business
    • Make it 360 pixels by 360 pixels for best results
    • Use your logo if possible unless your business trades on your personal image. In that case, use your picture.
  • A cover photo
    • Size your image to 828 pixels by 465 pixels.
    • Choose a photo of your office, store, staff, or current marketing campaign
