How to Leverage Your Facebook Profile for Facebook Marketing

Would you like to add your Business Page to Your Facebook Profile to give a little nudge for your Facebook marketing?

A lot of small businesses are just starting out with their Facebook pages and aren’t doing much with Facebook marketing because it can be confusing and feel like a waste of precious time. 

As a Social Media Coach, I’ve talked to many small businesses and found that about 1 out of 4 don’t realize the difference between a Facebook Profile and a Facebook Page.

Your Facebook Profile is your personal account on Facebook. You set up your Profile when you sign up on Facebook. Profiles are personal and pages are for business.

You can find out more about that here >> Why should I convert my personal account to a Facebook Page? 

Those that want to do more Facebook marketing say:

“I’ve been trying to figure something out, then Facebook keeps changing so much!”

After your Facebook page is ready to share with the world…

If you haven’t done this, then:

You’re going to want to start thinking about your Facebook marketing strategies.

One of the first things you can easily and quickly take care of is ~ connecting your Facebook page with your profile page.

Once you’ve edited and connected your Facebook page to your ‘workplace’ area ‘friends’ that visit your profile can hover over or click on the link to your ‘workplace’ and can view your business page, or just click to visit it right there.Facebook-marketing

You haven’t done this yet?

Think about the value of this for your Facebook marketing plan.

And really!

If you’ve not done this yet, it could be one of your biggest marketing mistakes!

But no worries…

In this short video (above), I show you 2 ways to add your business Facebook page to your Facebook profile.

But why would you want to?

Because your current job title and employer is the first thing listed under your profile photo.

Have you ever gone to somebody’s profile and looked for their Facebook page?

It seems that about 50% of the time many profiles don’t share a way to locate their business page.

Frustrating!

I remember years ago, some very kind person sent me a message and asked ‘why don’t you have your Facebook page listed on your profile’?

And I thought well why don’t I?

In the video, I’ll show you the regular way that you can add your page quickly to your Facebook profile.

Then I’ll share a workaround way in case your Facebook profile can’t locate your Facebook page.

So how do you add your Facebook Page as your employer or workplace?Facebook-marketing

This is the straightforward and quickest way:

  1. Go to your profile > then go beneath your image to the Education and Work section. Click the pencil to edit.
  2. Click on ‘Add a workplace’
  3. Begin typing the name of your Facebook page in the ‘Add a workplace’ field.
  4. If you see your page in the drop-down menu, select it.
  5. Then fill out the remaining fields if you’d like and…
  6. Click save.
  7. Presto! You did it!

Oh…One more thing. 

Just in case 

It doesn’t always happen that easily, as some of us know!

What’s that mean for the ones it doesn’t work out following those easy directions?

If you need help – I have the workaround in the video!

And, I also show the regular way step by step. 🙂

While it’s fresh on your mind watch the video try the first way and if that’s not going to work for you, just easily use the workaround to fix and Customize Your Intro – as you just follow along!

    Social media networking is so important nowadays and Facebook is one of the big ones. I can’t believe there are still businesses without a Facebook presence. This is a great tip to connect one’s profile and business page!

      As I’ve said before, I didn’t even know I could and should have my page on my profile for others to quickly find me, until a kind person told me so – lol

    Ohhh Facebook, the necessary evil that is both time consuming and insanely confusing (FB ads). I would love to crack the code on those because so many people seem to have good luck with them, but me… One click there, zero clicks there – ha! It’s weird.

      I know, GiGi – When I first started FB ads, it was really just experimenting and wasting money! But then I’ve had some successes and do need to get back at that – but yes it all takes time! Thank you for your comment!

    These days, both small and big businesses must have a Facebook business account since it’s one of the easiest way to reach out to target audience and announce about offerings. Search on FB is one of the first things we do when we want to know more about the brand.
