Create a Facebook Page


Facebook provides the ability to create a page about a business, brand, product, etc., which is a prime opportunity for you to get your new blog posts in front of people in Facebook.

Facebook pages

Just go to the “Create a Page” section on Facebook – it's a quick and easy process.

After you've submitted the category for your page, you'll be brought to a page to get started with it.

Get Started Facebook Page

Upload your logo or some other related image for the page. Other customizing can wait, because nobody is going to be clicking “like” on your page before it has some content anyway.

Initially, you'll have a messy, long URL for your Facebook page.

Mine for the Extra Money Answer page was http://www.facebook.com/pages/Extra-Money-Answer/173563666036393.

You'll want a shorter URL where you can use your site name, which is hopefully the same as your Twitter name.

But you cannot customize that URL on Facebook until 25 people “Like” the page. It's the old chicken and egg thing – it's harder to promote until 25 people like it, and people won't like it until it's worth liking and you can get them there.

So go to Fiverr.com, a community where you can get all sorts of things done for $5.

Search for Facebook likes on Fiverr. There are a bunch of people who will help you out and get the needed likes in a short time, so you can then get a custom name for your page on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/username/.

Facebook likes on Fiverr

After getting my 25 likes through somebody at Fiverr, I was able to change my user name, so I now have this url: http://www.facebook.com/extramoneyanswer.

Also, there is a service called NetworkedBlogs, where you can connect the RSS feed from your blog to your Facebook page.

Create an account there and register your blog.

Then follow the instructions from NetworkedBlogs to connect your blog to your Facebook page.

Pretty soon, you'll have your blog posting to your Facebook page, and then you can start promoting the Facebook page from your blog, as well as to your Facebook friends.
