    Hello,
    I have a new business idea, and would like to use Faccebook as one means of advertising, but do not want to pay, just want to be able to advertise through a regular page. I have a personal facebook account but don't want to use this, do I need to set up a new account? and how do I get this account noticed?

    Set up a business fan page, join your local buy and sell groups and advertise your stock. The best, easiest and cheapest way.

    Thanks for your reply, is it easy to set up business fan page? Do you have to link it in with your personal page?

    Just to hijack the thread, how do you join a page as a business fan page? When I use fb as my fan page it doesnt let me be friends with my local selling page which is pretty gutting :-(

    hey volantary, make your personal page an admin. Then whilst logged in just go to top right (i believe) and click 'use as' in my case lhjewellery then i can go like what i want

    The problem is my local selling pages are effectively just normal users, which means you have to add them as friends rather than like them. Can a fan page do this?

    You can't join groups when using the 'fan page' I tried this the other night. So I just use my personal FB to advertise but when I deliver I hand them a business card with FB fan page and website etc. most will have a look at the very least, I've even had some lovely comments as well :)

    A fan page admin can only like not join or add as friend. Though some have accounts as well as a fan page but i don't and wouldn't bother personally. I think advertising as a person and not a company adds some humanity (if that makes sense)

    Hi beacon,

    All you have to do is go to this page (be sure you are logged in):
    http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php

    I recommend selecting a brand or product page if you are into online selling :)

    Best of luck with your page!
