Step by step tutorial: How to create a facebook business page
Facebook fan pages help you to brand, socialize and send messages to all of your blog or website fans. If you have not yet created a Facebook fan page for your blog, do it now and enjoy taking your brand to the next level.

Selecting a facebook page type:
Go to this create a Facebook page link, and select the type of business you have. Selecting the proper category will allow your brand to reach the right audience.
For example, if you need a fan page for your website or blog, select “Brand or Product” and select “websites” from the drop-down menu.  Next, add your brand name. This is not a vanity URL, but you can add a custom URL from your fan page later.
Click on “Get Started”, and then add the details and choose an avatar for your fan page. I would suggest using your official Gravatar, and if you don’t have a Gravatar, you can always create a picture for your fan page that is similar to your brand’s logo. Note: the maximum size for your Facebook fan page profile pic is 180*540 px.
Once you’re finished uploading your picture to your newly created Facebook fan page, Facebook gives you an option to invite your friends to your fan page. You can skip this for now if you wish, and return to this feature later. On the next page add your website details, and click on “Continue.” Once done, you already have a page have a page and you can hit “Like” and recommend people, and also edit page settings.

How to edit Facebook page settings:

Once you have learned how to create a Facebook fan page, it’s time to learn how to edit your fan page.

1) Fan page wall:
Like our Facebook profile, this is the wall for the Facebook fan page. You can use it to upload images, text, share links, ask questions and upload videos. I would suggest that you use in as creative a manner as possible.  Apart from publishing your latest post to your fan page using RSS Graffiti, I also suggest you that you work on asking interesting questions and engage your users in conversation.

2) Edit fan page:
As you are editing your Facebook fan page, you will find the admin management page of Facebook, and from there you can take various additional actions related to your newly created fan page.

4) Use your page as a profile:
Sometime back, Facebook added a new feature to Facebook pages for businesses, and it allows you to use Facebook as a profile. You can “Like” other Facebook pages, and comment using your Facebook fan page name. You can not add another user to your Facebook profile, but from a branding point of view, you can effectively use this feature to make your reach wider. You can engage in conversations and discussions, and if you are an expert, your answers will help you to get genuine fans.

5) Facebook fan page SEO:
It is important to note that your “About” section works as a meta description with search engines. For this reason, you will want to write your “About” section carefully, so that it is easier to rank for any keyword using a Facebook page.
So, choose your name and the contents of your “About” section carefully.

6) Fan count:
This is one number which we would always like to see increasing! You can refer to the tips in my other posts on increasing fans on your Facebook page, and watch this number grow. One of the easiest ways to increase fans on your newly created Facebook fan page is by adding a Fan Box widget on your website. Here are hand-picked articles that would help you get more fans:
You should also download official Facebook page manager app for Android & iOS, which would make it easier for you to manage & update your page from your smartphone.
If you are looking for enhanced branding and social media outreach, I suggest that you also create Google Plus page.
