Facebook is another market place for online business. Your kids can use facebook to promote their online store. You require a personal facebook account in order to be able to set up a brand or business facebook page. Your kid must be at least 13 years old to have a personal Facebook account.
Say you have successfully set up your T-shirts online store with Teespring.com with no money upfront, following that, this is how to set up a facebook page for your brand or business.
Step 1: Login to your personal Facebook account.
Step 2: Go to the top right-hand corner, on the blue bar, you can see “CREATE”. Click on it. A drop-down menu would appear, you would see the options to create a page or an ad or a group or an event or marketplace listing or fundraiser. Choose “PAGE”.
Step 3: You have two options – business or brand or community or public figure. Choose to get started with Business or brand.
Step 4: Enter a great business or brand name in mind in the PAGE NAME. Then select a category for your product or a service. After that, enter your address and please remember to TICK the Don’t show my address. Only show that this business in the city, state region. This is important especially if it is your home address. You do not want strangers to turn up at your doorstep unexpectedly.
Step 5: Upload a profile picture or your business logo. You can SKIP this page if you have not got a nice picture for your business yet. You can always add your profile picture later.
Step 6: Add your cover photo. Again, you can SKIP this if you have not got your nice photo to upload. You can do it later. Click next to complete.
Step 7: You can invite your friends to like your business brand page! so they can spread the word about your business.
Here is an example of a brand Facebook page created for Amelia with Fallot Heart.
Post something cool about your product or service to attract new like every now and then to engage with your fans.
You may also run a facebook ad on your business page by boosting a post. This option is not free but you can set a budget for each ad. You would require card payment details to do this.
Good luck and may your business prosper.
