This lesson will show you how to create you Facebook page. This step is very easy and straightforward. To create a Facebook page you must have a Facebook account. Any account will do, even a fresh account. In this lesson we are using a freshly made account. I have just created this account, as you can see it doesn’t even have a cover. Friends as of this time is not important. We can grow our page even if the profile we are using doesn’t have any friends. This profile is bare, it doesn’t have a post, we only have our profile picture for starters. We are creating a page that is dedicated to Do it yourself, a niche that can be profitable if approached correctly. We will name this page “Everyday Do-it-yourself Ninja.”
To start creating your page, click this button right here, and from the drop down menu, choose “Create Page.” We are given a lot of options but we will choose “Community” because the page we are going to create is a community. We now type in the name of our page, Everyday D.i.y. Ninja. After clicking the Get Started button we are prompted to enter some details about our page. I have prepared a short line of description and we will just copy and paste it here. This is just a quick description. We can edit this later. We can add a lot more to the description later too in the long description section. Then we will enter a unique Facebook web address for our page, it should be easy to remember. Of course the best address to choose is the name of our page. After entering our desired Facebook web address, we proceed to uploading a profile picture. The profile picture you choose plays a very important role in having people actually like your page. People judge by what they see. I hastily created a cute ninja profile picture. A ninja a person who excels in a particular skill or activity and DIY people are considered ninjas in their own right.
After uploading a profile picture we are prompted to promote the page. We are not doing it as of now so we will skip it. Now your page is created and published, and Facebook will show you help tips in case you know nothing about the parts of Facebook pages. To enhance the look of our page, we will upload a cover picture or a header. Now, the page looks good after we have uploaded the cover image.
We are now looking at a published Facebook page. The next step is tweaking the settings of the page. We will start with the most basic of page settings. We can do the bigger settings later.
We now click the Settings button to go to the Settings section. We do not want spammers to feast on our page, so we will prevent them from doing it by not allowing everyone the ability to post on our timeline. We uncheck these two boxes here. We can leave the other settings at default as of now. We will go back to them later as we progress with our page and new settings are needed. Everything in this section looks good as of now, so let us go to the Page Info section to see if there are things we could tweak there. In the Page info section you can add the long description for your page. It is helpful to add important keywords in this section, it will help people find your page when they do a search on Facebook. We will leave this blank as of now, here we can add a website if we have one. We can add the long description and website later. What is important is that I have shown you where to add the long description and website. This is the Page Roles section. we can see that there is only one Admin controlling this page as of now. Later I will show you how to add multiple administrators to this page via this section.
