How to create a page on Facebook: Have you just opened a website or a blog and can’t wait to make it known to as many people as possible? There is no need to advertise it with expensive paid systems, just do some promotion on social media. Yes, exactly! Nowadays, the best way to promote a business is to create a “fan” page on Facebook and animate it every day with contents that refer more or less directly to the site or activity to be advertised.
You obviously haven’t tried it yet, but I can assure you that create a page on Facebook it’s very easy, as well as free. It is true, later it can take some money to promote the page within the social network (by purchasing advertising spaces suitable for your target audience) but this is a discourse that must be addressed later.
For the moment I would say not to think about it and take action: roll up your sleeves and create your page on Facebook. I assure you that it takes just a few clicks to get beautiful personalized pages and instantly report them to all your online friends. Try it and you will see how many “likes” you will receive in no time at all!
Create a Facebook page from your PC
If you want create a page on Facebook using your PC, linked to the social network home page, log in to your account and follow the guided procedure that I am about to explain to you in detail.
Once logged in, click on the button (+) located at the top right and select the item Page in the opened menu. Using the form that appeared on the screen, specify the page name, his category membership and then click on the button Create page (lower left).
Scroll down the sidebar on the left, click on the button Add profile picture and upload the profile photo you want to use. Do this also for the cover photo: click on the button Add cover image and upload the image of your interest. Once this is done, click on the button Save at the bottom left. Well: now you have your page up and running!
To make the page easier to find, I recommend that you create a username for it. To do this, click on the link Create @username, located under the name of the page itself, write the username of the page in the text field in the box opened in the center of the screen and, to finish, click on the button Create username.
If, on the other hand, you want to add custom buttons on your page (for example those to buy a product, view a video or receive emails / calls), click on the button (+) Add a button, click on the action you want to assign to the button in question (eg. Book now, Call now, etc.), provide the information necessary for the proper functioning of the same (eg website, the cellphone number, the telephone number, etc.), click on the button Save And that’s it.
To promote your page and make it known to the public, click on the button (…) which is located under the cover image (always in the tab Home) and select the item Invite your friends to invite your Facebook friends to “like”, or select the item Share to share the page on your personal profile by publishing an ad hoc post.
To change permissions, privacy levels and other advanced page settings, go to the tab Settings (in the sidebar located on the left) and click on the values you want to customize. For example, to add administrators or editors you can select the item Page roles from the left sidebar and use the buttons and menus to indicate the people to be added to manage the page.
To increase the number of likes and make your page known to Facebook users, instead, follow the tips in my tutorials on how to increase likes on Facebook and how to advertise a page on Facebook. I’m sure they will be very useful to you.

Just a small recommendation before saying goodbye: to better manage your page, use the official app Facebook Business Suite, which is available for free for Android And iOS / iPadOS and it is very simple to use. I advise you to contact the latter, as it allows you to manage Facebook pages and even Instagram pages with greater ease, but obviously it is only a personal choice. You can proceed as you prefer.
