Do You Have the Right Kind of Facebook Page?

Some massage therapists have set up a Page for their business on Facebook, but have chosen the wrong type of Page. Ideally, if you have a physical location you want your Page to be a “Local Business” Page. This gives you special functionality on your Page that is specific to a “brick and mortar” business (as opposed to a Brands or Products).

You can see what kind of Page you have by going to your business Page and clicking the Edit Page link at the top of the page and then clicking Edit Settings.

Then go to the Page Info┬átab and look at the Category. It should say “Local Business”. BodyworkBiz is not a local business because there is no physical location, so you won’t see that label on my BodyworkBiz Facebook Page:

If your category is not “Local Business”, simply click the Edit link to the right and choose the proper Page Category from the drop down menu and save your changes.

Then be sure to fill out all the possible fields that Facebook gives you for your local business page. This will help visitors find the information they are looking for when they go to the About tab on your Page: Things like prices, parking, hours, directions, etc.
