    Hi Sylviane,

    First I want to thank you so much for the mention of my last blog post on Facebook.

    I like the way you take your own pictures. I love to do that because it gives us a true individual identity. Mine is on the beach! I like to play around with my headers because when we do, it shows up on Facebook too. They just like us to do that stuff lol.

    I used to go crazy about setting up tabs. Since I learned how to do it, my life is easy. I use the 80/20 rule here too. 20 percent of the time I remind my Facebook friends to click the “red button” where it goes to my sales page.

    You have done a wonderful job with this and I’m heading over to Youtube now!

    Thanks again,

      Hi Donna,

      You’re welcome. I thought your last post about Facebook was great and encouraging for people like me, so I thought it was really appropriate to share it on this post.

      It’s so much fun on top of being so much cheaper to create your own headers and so easy too. Thank you so much for heading on YouTube as well. You’re the best gal :)

        That’s right Sylviane! Donna’s last Facebook post was awesome! I am glad you referenced it as well.

        By the way, your video of setting up Table is great! Very clear, very encouraging and to the point. A good guide to get the job done!

        And I am going to go on your Facebook page and increase your LIKES by one more for sure :-)

        Hi Kumar,

        First off thank you for liking my page(s), however still trying to figure out how to reply to people on there when they do LOL. Facebook is not always user friendly.

        I’m never satisfied when I make a video, but at this time I do not have a good editing tool, so it is as is :)

        Yes, Donna’s post was very encouraging to still use Facebook pages even though some people here and there have said otherwise.

        Thank you for coming.

    Hey Sylviane,

    GREAT Read! Right now I’m not focusing on my page as much as I should be – especially with Facebook’s new pay to play attitude! But, when I jump back into the saddle and get things going I’ll be take a lot of your advice, my timeline image definitely needs some work!

    Thanks for sharing,

      Hi zach,

      I’m glad this post inspired you to work on your Facebook pages. The timeline header is actually not as important as the professional pages. I set my account in a way, that the timeline is no longer accessed through search engines, but my pages are.

      The reason I did this, are two actually. 1) I want people find my professional business pages, not so much my timeline page, and 2) I had some nosy people check on my things that I didn’t want them into. So, it works for me.

      Thanks for coming by :)

    Hi Sylviane,

    I got started 3 times to do a business Facebook page but found it to cumbersome to do. Thank you for writing this ‘how to’ that gives me the info I need to do a page. My only issue is is it worth it? More so in ‘time investment’ than should I have it. There is some controversy as to have a business page vs a personal page. Managing both seemed to be the issue that people complained about. I’m still torn and that’s why I haven’t created one as yet. But you’ve certainly explained a lot and I’m grateful for that. May try it again now that you’ve given me the incentive. :)
    Thanks so much.

    p.s. Got your message. I’ll hit you up tomorrow evening on PM. Been working all week-end.

      Hi Barbara,

      Like I said, I’m no Facebook expert, but I’ve just learned from a freelance writer that having a professional Facebook page is still worth it, and anyone having a service to offer should have one. That’s what I was told recently.

      As far as time consuming, it’s really not. I didn’t calculated the time, but roughly, 10-15 on the header. Maybe 30 for as much as 4 tabs. 15-20 to fill out the page info. So roughly 1 ½ to 2 hours max for one page. It’s really not that bad, Barbara. I am sure you can find two hours of you time to create a fabulous looking professional page.

      I hope this will encourage you to build your page. Let me know when it’s done :)

    Hi Sylviane,

    Interesting tips. Your strategy of using personal picture instead of a logo makes sense. I guess in many cases, using a personal picture will do better than using a logo. It’ll bring people more closer to you.

    And I like the way you made up brilliant and relevant cover picture just using basic tools like- digital camera, free photo editors etc. I agree that they look good and are catchy too. And all that came without you spending any money at all! That’s impressive by the way. :)

    That app to add custom tabs will also come handy. It sure will give a more personal touch to the page.

    I found the link to this post on Kingged.

      Hi Arun,

      Yes, while a logo is something nice to have for business cards and your site, for example, it’s not good to have “instead” of a representation of who YOU are, of your face. Remember that!

      I’m glad you enjoyed this post and thank you for coming.

    Hi Sylvianne,
    A lot of people ignore the importance of having a Facebook page. This is a mistake because they can actually be missing out on referral traffic. Your post is practical and its worth sharing for many to learn.

    Hey Sylviane,

    This was a great tutorial of how to set up a professional Facebook Fan Page. I’ve actually set mines up but I haven’t been using it to it’s full potential, plus I need to do some revamping. I just haven’t made the time for it.

    But besides that, a lot of people do get confused on how to set one up. I like the fact that you really simplified the process for the most novice person to set up. Thanks for sharing and you have a great week!

      Hi Sherman,

      It’s worth it to set up your facebook page properly, as I’m told that Facebook turns off pages that are not completely set up.

      Thank you for you feedback and sorry for the late reply :)

    Hi Sylvianne,

    Informative post indeed :)

    Congratulations on your many Facebook pages now, and I think I’ve already liked them long back when I got your invitation. Yes, creating them is the easy part but maintaining them isn’t all that easy! I made one for Aha!NOW also sometime back besides my other official fanpage that I made earlier, so it does take time to update all of them at least once a day if not more.

    I loved Donna’s recent posts on it too, and she surly shared some good tips. Yes, I need to re-work on my header a week bit, never have enough time in hand! I agree about those tabs and there’s a lot you can do with those. :)

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead :)

      Hi Harleena,

      Sorry for the so late reply, but as you were saying in your comment, time is what’s missing to do it all,right?

      I know what you mean, it takes time to maintain these things, that’s why some people outsources this type of work. I totally see why ;)

      Thank you for coming and have a great weekend!

    I’ve struggled with my Facebook Page ever since I set it up to be honest Sylviane.

    I rarely visit Facebook these days as I spend most of my time on Twitter.

    Maybe now’s the time to go back and rethink that with a Facebook Page makeover!

    I appreciate the tutorial. That will certainly help :-).

      Hi Tim, and sorry for this so late reply here.

      What have you been struggling with in regards to your Facebook page? What I’m struggling with is getting likes, but as for the setting it’s pretty easy.

      If I can help you in anyway, just let me know, OK?

      Have a great weekend.

    Hey Sylviane,

    What a great job of sharing with everyone how to set up their Facebook Fan Pages and the video was really a great addition. So many people get confused on how to set up the tabs and it’s just much easier now then in the very beginning.

    Gosh, I set up my page a couple years ago so whenever I go back and edit things I have to figure out what the heck I did. LOL!!! I know, when you’re not working on those all the time then it’s hard to remember.

    Now we all know that we’re not all fabulous with creating images and things and if they don’t have pictures of their own for their timeline then they should be sure to check out Canva because that program just makes it so easy to use. I linked to my post on that great program below.

    Thanks for the great post on setting up Facebook pages and how to do those darn tabs Sylviane. Really great job.Have a wonderful week.

      Hi Adrienne,

      I tell you I’m only replying to my last comments on this blog post now. What the heck of a busy life I’ve got these days, but as I am stretching to get more clients for my business, on top of work, I got even more tied up!

      There is no way on earth anyone could understand at glance how to set up those tabs. So even though my video sucks a bit, it can still help some people :)

      I know that the tool you blogged about the other day, Canva, should be good for this too. I’ll try it!

      Thanks for coming and have a great weekend.

    Hi Sylviane,I was about to press play but I’d thought I’d leave my comment first. :).

    This was definitely a wake up call for me because when I looked at my Facebook header it is definitely outdated and in desperate need of a make-over.

    Thanks for sharing putting this together. I’ve not taken time to play with Facebook and take advantage of all it has to offer. I’m about to press play and I’ll definitely stop by You Tube to give it a like and subscribe to your channel!I hope you\’re having a great week!

      Hi Corina,

      Nice to see you back. I know you had lots on your plate lately.

      Yes, I think it’s still worth it to update your Facebook page and fill out all the information you need so Facebook will keep the page up rather than turning it off.

      Sorry for this ridiculously late reply.

    Hi Sylvianne, Good post. I like how to wrote out a path so people can walk through steps and have a product at the end. I have played a little with my FB page but really need to carve out time to get back to it.

    P.S. I really like your first picture. I did the same thing withe coffee and a keyboard. Oh, how we think alike :)

    Hello Sylviane,You gave some fabulous tips in this post, but they were not something I had not thought of or heard of before. What made your posts stand out to me was the use of your own personal example pages (the screenshots). Adding those examples made his posts much more credible and I will put them to use because trust has been built.Keep it up.

    And for Donna’s post, it was a great post.
    I’ve read them some time ago :)

    Thanks for sharing this, Sylviane.
