You know what you think of when you see folks with the egghead on Twitter, well, the lovely suitcase for your company name when looking at your Facebook personal page gives me the same heebie jeebies! (yes, that’s a word!)
Anyways, when I know that my friend has a business and I want to support them, I obviously go to their Facebook page and see “where they work”. This should tell me where they work – or their business name which is linked to their business. I can go to their business page and like it and from there even check out their website for more information in their business page About Us section.
Eeeeekkkkk… hold the phone, there isn’t a work history, no business listed or one that isn’t an actual page but that suitcase thingy? What?? Friends don’t let friends claim the Facebook Suitcase.
Seriously people, you can’t expect your friends to know everything about your business let alone remember the name of it and what the URL is. Best way to HELP them out, is provide that for them. Obviously they know your name, so finding you is way easier than trying to remember what your business name is, or if the name is similar to others, which one is yours. GOLDEN info here folks.
Check out this video on what a linked page is and a few examples of where there isn’t a linked page. By the way, I hook up my friends and reached out to them to tell them it wasn’t linked. (4 minutes)
Then, of course, I want to be sure you know how to link your page, so this video, half the length (2 minutes) of the first one and shows you how you can link it. I got your back!
Hopefully this has helped you out and well, if you already have your Facebook page linked/connected, I’m so proud of you! Please share this blog or the videos on my YouTube Channel to help your friends link their Facebook pages.
This is also a great reminder to check over your About Us in Facebook and update it. While you are thinking about it, be sure to check your other social medias and make sure your About info is complete with contact information and a keyword rich description.
If you need any help with social media, be sure to contact me and let me know. Otherwise, I’d love to hear YOUR thoughts about linking your pages, other tips and tricks you use or how thankful you were for this little segment. 🙂 Have a great one!
