Branding Facebook Pages

As many of you know, Facebook Pages began to look different at the end of February. The new visual dynamic appeals to many — including brands. With that in mind, I want to share with you some tips on how to improve your Facebook Page for brand development.

What does your cover look like?

Your cover photo is one of the most prominent images of your Facebook Page; it sits at the very top of your page and serves as a kind of introduction to your brand. What does it look like? Choosing the right image is crucial to your branding. The image should represent the larger picture of your brand.

Do you have any custom tabs?

With the option to create up to 12 tabs displayed beneath your cover photo, it’s something to take advantage of. Each tab displays a representative icon for its function. For example, photos are…photos. Photos is, by default, your first tab on your Facebook Page. Because only four of the possible twelve appear on the main screen, I suggest using those tabs you deem most important to your brand presence– what do you want your target audience to look at first? How do you want to organize what will be their options to interact with your brand?

Integrate Facebook and Twitter!

If you Tweet, connect Twitter  from your profile settings. You can display your tweets in your timeline.

Content Must be Good Writing. Exciting Writing.

As always, don’t undermine the importance of good writing. Content should always be fresh. Don’t leave a photo or video hanging without any context. Include a snippet of text that has a call to action.
