How to Post Status Updates to Your Facebook Business Page

By Amy Porterfield, Phyllis Khare, Andrea Vahl

Posting a few interesting status updates before you publish your Business’s Page so as to populate your Timeline encourages people to stick around after they find your business on Facebook. You should make informational posts about the purpose of your Page, its history, and some introductory posts about you or your business.

You should also include one post with a link to either your website or e-commerce site. Another good idea is to add at least one milestone to your Page.

On your Page, look for the publishing area.


Follow these steps to create a simple post:

  1. Click inside the area that says Write something

    This step opens the publishing area. You see several icons along the bottom of this space for scheduling, adding a location, and targeting.

  2. Type something interesting.

  3. Click Post.

    This post shows up on the Timeline. No one will see it until you publish the Page. After the Page is published, you need to create more posts so that they go out into the News Feeds of the people who have liked your Page.

If you created a Local Business Page, you also have the ability to create an offer.
