Facebook Fan Page

Recommended Posts

So I was really excited about creating my custom URL for my new Facebook fan page....then Facebook ruined it! :angry: You have to 100 fans before you can customize the URL...I only have 48 :(

 

So if anyone wants to be my fan I would really appreciate it! Here it is: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Social-Media...ch/105231108576

 

Anyone else as disappointed as I am?

Girls... not sure if people will still be participating and helping each other today... but if you go to Mashable's site on facebook, and go down to his wall post titled > Mashable FACEBOOK FANPAGE HELP > there is a long list of comments from people fanning each other. They were attempting to do so prior to the kickoff, but they may continue on today in order to get enough fans.

 

Granted, they may not be very qualified fans, but a fan nonetheless. Good Luck!

 

If you have not enough fans at the moment make sure you have booked your Memorable Web Address on Facebook. First add to your personal profile and then you can add to your page. Look for that application to set it up. The link to your business page will look like mine below, a new Facebook one will look like VAnetworking's below.

 

We can start our own list here at VAnetworking as well to build up each others' fan base:

 

VAnetworking's page is : http://www.facebook.com/VAnetworking

My Business page is http://companies.to/timeontaskva

 

Any questions, let me know...

Erin is right Crystal,

 

The 1000 was to create your page vanity url on June 12th. If you had 1000 then you could have done it asap, without waiting until this past Sunday for the second wave.

Well, I'm at 95 fans now but this isn't the only way to get a cool url.

 

www.facebook.com/pages/myfanpage/123456789 is the current URL that Facebook gives you.

 

www.facebook.com/myfanpage is what we are trying to achieve with the 100 fans.

 

www.mywebsite.com/facebook can be created using a redirect (quite simple to do).

 

www.myfanpage.com is a purchased domain name that can be pointed to your Facebook fan page.

Done!

Don't you sometimes feel like a trained circus poodle with all the hoops everyone wants you to jump thru all the time? (I know I have days where I feel that way)

Good Luck!

Soooo... I'm so-so at the web/seo stuff.... but the redirect under your own domain name is the better way to have it all go, is it not? More branding of your own domain?

 

And really everyone should understand that the whole point of facebook, twitter and most social media is to create interest in you and your business so people come to your website and look into your services and products or you as a person to ask/talk to... so make certain that all your facebook pages have links back to you!

Here is one more option that Mari Smith ( facebook guru) suggested via Twitter. This is a facebook app.

http://www.fbook.me This is basically a redirect done for you.

 

I recently built my Facebook page so would appreciate anyone who want to message me with input on how to do it better. Also appreciate any Facebook fans to get me started... :D
