Moreover, the creation of one of these pages is a quick and painless process. So, what's preventing you from creating another online social media presence to help promote yourself and/or your business? Your reasoning for now having one could be you don't know how, which is fine, for now.
BUT, in this article, we are going to help with that by explaining exactly how to set up a Facebook Fan page of your own, so keep reading
First things first, if you do not already have an account with Facebook, then you can easily sign up for a standard (personal) page instead of a Fan page if you like. On the Facebook homepage you will find the standard sign up form www.facebook.com/
If you do already have a standard Facebook page, you can create a "Fan" page for yourself or business.
Locate the "Create a Page" link under the green "Sign Up" button on the Facebook home page.
You then see three choices; There are some options that you can create - a Group, Community Page or an Official Page.
We are focusing on the Official Page as the "Fan" page within this article. You want to select the option that fits your situation best. You can choose between options like Local Business, Brand, Artist, Band, etc.
As an example, when I created a Fan page for WishList Bobbi, located at www.facebook.com/pages/WishList-Bobbi/108817762486434, I set it up as a business. As mentioned, you can set up your Fan page in the manner you prefer. As a note, your page will appear the same on Facebook regardless of which choice you make.
Once you have made your selection, click on the button that states "Create Official Page." Facebook will then ask you to invite friends and post info such as Basic Information, Contact Information, Education, etc. as well as to list other Pages you like.
Now you're done! Once completed you can direct your members, clients, friends, ANYONE to your Facebook Fan page!
You can add posts on your new Facebook Fan page Wall, add pictures in the Photos tab, and start a list of topics in the Discussions tab. It is very similar to other areas in Facebook, such as a regular profile page. You can use all of the standard features or learn about more advanced ones to communicate with your fans.
In addition, with your official Fan Page you are able to create a Profile Page. Be sure to fill out as much information as possible in the Information tab.
Now all you have to do is invite all your Facebook friends to 'Fan' you and build your fan base. Be sure to Tweet about your new "Fan" page on Twitter as well and to add a link to your page in your email signature.
Your own thriving community will be started in no time
