Follow the steps listed below to set up your restaurant’s Facebook account.
SIGN UP FOR FACEBOOK
The first step in making a Facebook account for your restaurant is to sign up for an account. You have to set up a personal account for yourself first before making a business page for your restaurant.
Create a personal account by entering your name, email address, password, and birthday details. Click ‘Sign Up’ and continue to the next step.
CREATE A NEW PAGE
After you have signed up, you can make a business page for your restaurant. Go to the dashboard’s left side and click on the ‘create page’ option.
Once you have signed up, you are now ready to create your restaurants, then click on ‘Local Business or Place’ and fill in your restaurant’s details, including name, address, and phone number.
FILL OUT YOUR RESTAURANTS INFORMATION
In the third step, add further details about your restaurant, including the kind of cuisine you offer, a description of your ambiance, and add your website link. You can skip this step and fill it out later if you like, or you can come back and modify it any time you want.
DESIGN YOUR PAGE
Design your Facebook page by adding a profile picture and cover photo. You can add a picture bigger than Facebook’s recommended size, and then it resizes it to fit the frame. Make sure the images you add to showcase your restaurant in the best possible way.
CHOOSE A USERNAME
Once you have more than 25 likes, Facebook should allow you to make a username. Under the profile picture, you’ll see the ‘Create Page @Username’ option; click on this link and make your restaurant’s name your username. But if it’s already taken, modify it by adding your city’s name to it. The username allows people to find your page on Facebook easily.
The last step is updating your page by adding content to it. Add exciting content about your restaurant, from menus to staff bios to beautiful pictures of food and your interior. Begin updating your page with fun and relevant information about you and your restaurant.
You can post once a day to keep your followers interested, multiple posts make followers lose interest, and they can end up unliking your page.
