Create a Facebook Business Page
Your Facebook page should reflect the look and feel of your business website. The profile should incorporate keywords which describe the business so that new and existing clients are able to find your page. Don’t forget to create a places page by using the “Check-In” feature. This will allow you to claim your business and then customers can use their mobile devices to “check in.” This will automatically post your business name and location on their facebook page. This will inform all of their friends that they are supporting your business. Think of it as free advertising – because it is!
