How to Make Your Facebook Page Pretty
note: this is a post from my old blog, but I carried it over to the new blog because so many people were trying to find it! :)
Hey guys! I gave the Charm & Gumption Facebook Page a little makeover this morning, and I realized that a lot of you bloggers / small biz owners may wonder how to make these changes to your page (because I didn't know how to do this either at first). Keep reading for a step-by-step guide!
. COVER IMAGE, SIZE 851px x 315px
This is the first thing that people see when they come to your business page, so you want to choose something that will show what your business is about at a glance. I chose to showcase my most popular products, and I added my Etsy Shop URL and some colorful stripes.
*according to Facebook guidelines, you can only have 20% overlay text (not including text on products) so be mindful of that as well.
2. APPS, SIZE 111px x 74px
Customizing your apps to match the rest of your page is a small detail that makes such a big difference! Make them pop with color and fun fonts, or choose unique wording so that your apps to grab your reader's attention.
1. Go to the Apps section of your page and click the down facing arrow on the right. This will display all of your apps (photo 1, below).
2. Click the pencil at the top right of the app you are changing. Then click "Edit Settings" (photo 2).
3. Click "Change" (photo 3).
4. Click "Edit" next to your current image, and upload your new image.
*The image will not work if it is the wrong size (even if it is just scaled up).
*Once the image is uploaded, nothing will happen. Just refresh your page and see the new pretty results!
3. MAKE YOUR POSTS FIT THE PAGE, 404 x 404 & 843 x 403
A commonly forgotten about trick (I'm guilty of skipping this sometimes), but your page will look so much more nice and seamless if your images fit the Facebook dimensions. So, remember to crop the image to fit the space.
I hope this was helpful! If you have any questions, just leave them below. Also, I'd love for you to leave the links to your new, pretty page! xo
