How to make a fan page (in a few easy steps). Fan Pages in Facebook are powerful, free and are easy to setup and maintain. The trick to a good Fan Page is investing time and thought into making it as useful/valuable as possible. To do this, you’ll want to go way beyond the tutorial below and look at some popular fan page sites to see what they are doing to keep things interesting.
To begin, login to Facebook and navigate to the Create a Fan Page url. You can find this link on the footer at facebook.com
Next, you’ll see a variety of Fan Page types that you can choose from. The Fan Page types are:
- Local Business or Place
- Company, Organization or Institution
- Brand or Product
- Artist, Band or Public Figure
- Cause or Community
Let’s say, for example, you want to build a Cause or Community Fan Page. Facebook will ask you to name your Fan Page and then agree to the Facebook Pages Terms.
Click on “Get Started” and now it is time to setup your Fan Page. Some steps are required and some are optional.
- Add an image
- Invite your friends (suggest this Fan Page to your friends)
- Tell your fans (import contacts and let them know)
- Post Status Updates
- Promote this page on your website
- Set up your mobile phone (so you can post updates via text or mobile email)
After you have completed these steps, then it’s really a matter of fine tuning your setup and looking for ideas to make your fan page as compelling as possible. Afterall, what’s the point of building a fan page if you are not going to offer anything of interest to the fans.
