Customizing Your Facebook Business Page: Strategies for Maximum Impact

Want to learn all about the benefits of a Facebook business page? Here’s the skinny. 

In our previous article, we talked about setting up your Facebook business page.

Now, we’re delving into customizing your Facebook Business Page. When your Facebook Business Page is up and running, customization is crucial – and this process is key to setting your page apart from competitors and making it perfect for your business and audience. 

Let’s dive in!

Customizing Your Facebook Business Page

Facebook offers several page templates designed with different business types in mind, such as services, shopping, restaurants, and more. Each template prioritizes certain tabs and buttons to suit specific needs. Be sure you have your business defined so you can accurately choose a template. Don’t worry because even if there are templates, you can still edit the page to your liking.

How to Change Templates

  1. Go to your Facebook Business Page.
  2. Click on “Settings” at the top of the page.
  3. Select “Templates and Tabs” from the left-hand menu.
  4. Browse through the available templates to find one that best matches your business.
  5. Click “Apply Template” to make the change.

Customizing your Facebook Tabs and Sections

Tabs like Home, About, Posts, Videos, and Photos are crucial for navigation and content organization on your page. You can customize which tabs are visible and their order based on what’s most important to your business.

Customizing for Your Needs

  1. In the “Templates and Tabs” section under Settings, you can turn tabs on or off.
  2. Drag and drop to reorder tabs to ensure the most important ones are visible first.
  3. Consider adding custom tabs for unique features such as testimonials or product catalogs.

Some suggestions for this:

– A retail business might prioritize the Shop and Reviews tabs.

– A service provider might highlight Bookings and Events.

Adding and Configuring a Call-to-Action Button

A well-placed call-to-action (CTA) button can guide your visitors to interact with your business, whether it’s to book a service, make a purchase, or contact you directly.

**Types of CTA Buttons**

– Book Now

– Contact Us

– Use App

– Shop Now

– Sign Up

Setting Up a CTA Button

  1. Click “Add a Button” below your page’s cover photo.
  2. Choose the type of button that best suits your business goal.
  3. Link the button to the desired destination, be it a booking form, your shop, or a contact page.

Enhancing Facebook Business Page Aesthetics

Cover Photo Tips

Your cover photo should be visually appealing and relevant to your business. It’s the first thing visitors see, so make sure it’s high quality and aligned with your branding. Dimensions should be 820 pixels wide by 312 pixels tall for desktop and 640 pixels wide by 360 pixels tall for mobile.

Profile Customization

You can use your brand logo for this also, and just change it from time to time when there are seasonal events or any promotions you’re trying to get out there. It’s also best to keep in mind that the profile picture overlaps with the cover photo. Try not to make colors clash or make sure there aren’t any important details that will be covered up due to the system’s design.

Page Roles

Managing a business page can be a team effort. Assign roles to team members based on their responsibilities:

1. Admin

The Admin has the most control and access over the Facebook Business Page. Admins can:

– Manage page roles and settings.
– Edit the page and add apps.
– Create and delete posts as the page.
– Send messages as the page.
– Respond to and delete comments and posts to the page.
– Remove and ban people from the page.
– Create ads, promotions, or boosted posts.
– View insights and see who published as the page.
– Access all other functionalities available to other roles.

2. Editor

Editors have several capabilities similar to an Admin, except for managing page roles and settings. Editors can:

– Edit the page and add apps.
– Create and delete posts as the page.
– Send messages as the page.
– Respond to and delete comments and posts to the page.
– Remove and ban people from the page.
– Create ads, promotions, or boosted posts.
– View insights and see who published as the page.

3. Moderator

Moderators are focused more on managing interactions on the page rather than posting content. Moderators can:

– Send messages as the page.
– Respond to and delete comments and posts to the page.
– Remove and ban people from the page.
– Create ads, promotions, or boosted posts.
– View insights.

4. Advertiser

Advertisers are primarily focused on creating ads and viewing related performance metrics. Advertisers can:

– Create ads, promotions, or boosted posts.
– View insights related to ads and overall page performance.

5. Analyst

Analysts have the most limited access, focusing solely on viewing insights and analytics. Analysts can:

– View insights and analytics data to understand page performance without the ability to interact with the content directly.

Each of these roles is designed to allow page administrators to delegate specific tasks while maintaining control over who can perform certain actions within the page’s environment. This structure helps in managing the page effectively, especially as it grows and requires more hands-on management and content moderation.

Integrating Apps

Integrate useful apps into your page to add functionality. Depending on the type of app you want to integrate (e-commerce, booking systems, customer service, etc.), the process might slightly differ. Generally, you will need to:

– Visit the specific app’s website or Facebook app page.
– Select the option to integrate it with Facebook.
– You may be prompted to log in to your Facebook account and authorize the app to access your page.

Thoughts

There you have it! Customizing your Facebook Business Page is not just about aesthetics; it’s about optimizing the page to serve your business goals and meet the needs of your audience. By effectively utilizing Facebook’s customization options, you can create a more engaging and functional experience for your visitors.
