facebook1 300x65 How to Build a Facebook Fan PageA Facebook Fan Page is a public profile that enables you to share your business and products with Facebook users. People can be your fan without being your friend, and pages are designed for businesses.

How do I get one?
First of all it’s free. Anyone can set-up a fan page, the only caveat being you have to be associated to the business or organization, in other words have permission to speak for the organization. If you’re the fan page administrator you have to have an account on Facebook, if you don’t it will ask you to set one up.

Go to the link: http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php

Follow the step-by step instructions. When it asks for the fan page name give this some thought. The name you give your page is permanent, so make sure it’s the one your fans and customers will recognize. It only takes a few minutes, and the set-up has about five questions.

Take note of your page address. It looks something like this:
In this link ‘Unilyzer’ is the name of my fan page and the link number is the ID.

What are Facebook Fans?
Facebook fans are like your friends on your personal account. They will receive notices when you add new wall posts, photos, and videos. I recommend becoming a fan of your own page, and inviting your existing Facebook friends to ‘Fan’ your page. Make a wall post with a link to your new fan page. Using your existing network to build your fan page is a great place to start.
