You’ve got a Facebook business page setup and you’re rockin the social media marketing now. However, you see other businesses with a url like facebook.com/businessname, but your Facebook url is more like facebook.com/page/yourbusiness/435256256. Why is it a good idea to have a Facebook “vanity url?” 2 reasons. First, it looks more professional. Second, it’s a whole lot easier to share your Facebook url with others. How do you get that nice pretty Facebook vanity url like that other guy? It’s really simple.
- Get at least 25 “Likes” to your page.
- Go to http://facebook.com/username.
- You may have to create a username for your personal profile first. Facebook will suggest one, but you can make up your own if you like.
- Choose a username for your business page. Usually this will be the actual name of your business. Choose carefully, because this cannot be changed once it’s set.
That’s it! See that didn’t hurt at all did it?
