Having a facebook business page for your business has become an integral part of having a great web presence.
I have just discovered how to create a short and direct link to my facebook business page. Instead of sending people to facebook.com/pages/name-of-my-page/some-long-number, I can send them to facebook.com/username, and I chose what username to use. So, to visit my facebook business page now, just go to http://facebook.com/goffgrafix.
CREATING A USERNAME FOR YOUR FACEBOOK BUSINESS PAGE
It takes about five minutes to do, and it will make your advertising and marketing so much easier. The graphic designer laying out your business card or print ad for the local paper will thank you, profusely. There will be less chance of a typo linking to your business page from your online marketing. It is all around a very good change to make.
You must be an administrator of the facebook page to make this change.
Log in to facebook and go to your business page.
Click on the EDIT PAGE link in the top right of the page.
Then, click on the Basic Info link in the left navigation options.
Once there, you will see a line of text at the top that says: Create a username for this page?
Click on that link, and type the username that you want below the page name, and then click on the blue Check Availability button.
If the username is available, it will ask you to confirm that you want that username for your business page.
If you like the username that you’ve created, click the confirm button.
It is that easy.
