Wondering how to set up a Facebook page for your repair shop or business? The process is very simple and here are the steps to get you closer to your customers on social media.
What you’ll need to start:
-A name for your page – Example: iXYZ Repairs
-A quick description of your business
Example: New York’s top cell phone repair company. With locations in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Chinatown. We fix everything from iPhones, Blackberry’s, HTC, Droid, Xbox, and PS3’s, to cameras and laptops and computers.
-A Profile Photo – 1:1 Ratio – Displays at 170×170 pixels on your Page on computers, 128×128 pixels on smartphones and 36×36 pixels on most feature phones (Logos are great for business profiles)
-A Cover Photo – Must be at least 400px wide and 150px tall – Displays at 820 pixels wide by 312 pixels tall on your page on computers and 640 pixels wide by 360 pixels tall on smartphones (Examples: Photo of Storefront, Current Promotions, etc.)
-Call To Action – What do you want customers to do when they visit your page? Depending on your business structure, what CTA is right for you? Smaller companies using Facebook frequently may want customers to message inquiries directly on the business page. However, larger companies may want customers to shop on their website. (Examples: Email, FB Messenger, Book an Appointment, Shop)
-Publish – Once all above is complete, congratulations, you’re ready to publish!
-Admins, Editors, Moderators, and Advertisers – Now that your page is live, who’s going to manage it? If you (the owner) doesn’t have time, you can assign different roles for management. These roles connect directly to the person’s Facebook profile and allow access to the business page. All roles are listed here
NOW POST AWAY – posting on a business page is the same as posting on a personal page.
Good luck starting your social media journey and connecting with your customers online!
