Thanks for the tips! I just made the changes you suggested. I don’t remember the last time I went through my Facebook data and updated it, but this was a good reminder to do so. Now my profile is linked with my fanpage, etc. Great video post!

Awesome tip Derek!
Just implemented and on a mindset level, it just makes you more focused on what you want to achieve on Facebook.
Thanks for that.

Thank you Derek! I cannot not even count the times I have been to a profile of a fellow business owner without link to their fanpage. Will share and hope that more people add their pages to the About section!

Katrin – thanks for getting the word out. I was so frustrated seeing people making this tiny mistake, which is why I had to get it out there on the video. Enjoy!

I had been struggling with this and finally realized I had to delete my old employer because you’re right, it wasn’t tied to anything when I did it originally.

I’m now happy, thank you! I’ll also be sharing this. :)

Hi Derek,
Can you tell me, is it better to have this section linked to your fan page or to your website?
Many thanks

Reply

Derek FredricksonNo Gravatar May 24, 2012 at 9:20 am

Zara – you can only link it back to your fan page from that section on your profile. In the “About” section you can add your website to the Contact details part.

Hi Derek ~
Thank you for the video!
Can you please tell me how you link a public figure page (as opposed to a business page) to the list of work?
Thanks,
~ Ava

Derek FredricksonNo Gravatar May 24, 2012 at 9:21 am

Hi Ava, it makes no difference what kind of page it is that you want to list there (whether it’s corporate fan page, business fan page, etc.) The only one that will show on the profile though is the one selected as most current.

I did this quite some time ago and does bring more attention to your fan page BUT I just wish Facebook would have never scrapped the ability of emailing fans :roll:

Reply

Derek FredricksonNo Gravatar May 24, 2012 at 9:22 am

True, Caleb. I miss that feature also but the reason they did it was to avoid having their users “spammed” or “messaged” by fan pages they couldn’t control.

Derek:
I have a business fan page, but I do not have a personal Facebook page. My struggle is that I am unable to like anyone’s page that likes my page. I never set up a personal page because I knew I would not pay as much attention to it as I would need to. How can I increase my business fan page, if I can not “like” those that support my business?

Reply

Derek FredricksonNo Gravatar August 13, 2012 at 9:46 am

Kim – not sure I understand. Everyone must have a personal profile to even login to FB. You can then create a “page” – whether it’s about you or your business is up to you.

Reply

KimNo Gravatar August 16, 2012 at 11:12 am

Honestly, I don’t have one. I have a business page and I log in with my business email address and make updates,post events, etc…people like the page. But I don’t have a personal page. Here is the link I used: http://www.facebook.com/business/overview. I went through each step and it never asked me for a personal page to link to. I am really sorry if I am confusing you. But I created the business page based on a seminar I went to and this is the link they provided.

Growing your Facebook page isn’t hard.

But it takes consistency.

You need to focus on providing value for your audience, and then try different tactics to see what works best.

I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog.
Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality
writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one these days.

This is fabulous Derek. I had updated my work info but didn’t know it could connect to an already established FB page. This was great to find this out. Thanks for the help.

The characters are appealing, both as individuals and as
a group, and I was quickly pulled into their story.

As with all Pixar films, John Ratzenberger’s voice is featured, her as
Gordon the guard. Sherry, because of a childhood accident,
is blessed with a psychic abilityy that when she touches a dead
person, she is able too see the last 18 seconds of what
that person saw.
