Create a Facebook business page

Have you been thinking about creating a FB Business page but aren’t sure how to start? Still using your personal page for Real Estate related posts? Watch the video above to learn how to create a Facebook business page, add contacts and start posting! Read below to find out why you should have a Business page in addition to your personal page.

Why have a Facebook Business Page?

Facebook is a great way to keep in touch with friends, family and your client base. It’s easy to share articles, photos of new listings and news from your computer or mobile phone. Lots of people use Facebook regularly (as opposed to regular use of LinkedIn or Google+) 

Pros of creating a dedicated business page vs. using your personal page

Pros of the business page:
1. Keep business separate from your personal life. You don’t want all your clients to see the crazy photos you are tagged in or know everything you post online for family and friends.
2. You can use Facebook’s inexpensive advertising services to find new clients.
3. Facebook insights is available to give you data about your page.
4. You can only have 5000 FB friends on your personal profile. Facebook page fans are unlimited!

Facebook tips

1. Post frequently but not so often that your fans find it obnoxious. (at least a few times a week)
2. Make sure to always include a link to your website in every post. 
3. Ask questions of your fans to get active participation. You can encourage followers to post a comment by posting the first comment yourself.
4. Ask your fans to share your posts on their FB so that you can gain new fans. 
5. Put links to your Facebook fan page or stream your page to your websites so that website clients can find you on social media.
6. Download the Facebook app to your smartphone to make posting a snap while you’re out and about.
