Should you have a fan page? I think yes if we want to be optimal in doing business online on Facebook because the features on the Fanspage are also designed for users who wish to make from Facebook.

How to create a fan page is also very easy. We click the “+” sign in the upper right corner. Then click “Page.” This is the new Facebook display, and maybe it will be different if you use the old Facebook display.

Continue by filling in the “Page Name” and other information. Fill in the name of the business and the product we want to sell. If it is finished, then all you have to do is complete the Fanspage account profile.

Don't forget to prepare an attractive profile photo and a photo for the header background. Another thing we need to set is contact info so that our customers know how to contact us when they are interested in what we sell.

Create a Business Account on Facebook
This business account is different from Facebook user accounts in general. If our Facebook user account is accessed on the facebook.com site, this business account is accessed on the business.facebook.com site.

This business account is more about managing the fanspage that we create. So, suppose we have dozens of fanpages, which can be set up in the dashboard of this business account. We connect all the fanspages with the same business account with a note.
