Why Create a Facebook Business Page?
It may or may not seem obvious but to advertise your business on Facebook you need to have a Facebook Fan Page. Without this, you will be throwing your money away by not capturing Facebook likes via a Fan Page and eventually converting them into customers, giving you a return on the money spent through advertising.
There isn’t anything more frustrating than checking a website and clicking on their Facebook link to find that they’ve redirected you to a personal page.
