Feel free to follow the video tutorial along with this blog. Be sure to check us out on our social media platforms, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. Every week we post new blogs that help you optimize your business presence online and offline.
Getting Started with Facebook Business Location
The first obvious step you want to complete is to log into Facebook. Navigate to your business manager page. Simply click on the top right panel icon and find the Business Manager tab. You can also directly navigate to your business manager page here.
We will be following one of Facebook’s help articles for this blog. This will help us add and manage multiple store pages to your business manager.
Open up the help article here on a separate page.
Once you have the help article open, scroll down to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) located at the bottom of the page. Click the first bullet point, “Add Stores to a Pages Structure on Facebook”.
The key requirements you need to complete the following steps are:
- You must be the admin or editor of the main Page.
- You must have a Page structure set up with a main Page.
Setting Up A Facebook Business Location
To set up a business location, open the Stores page on your business manager account.
Choose the specific business profile that you want to use. Simply navigate to the icon in the top right corner. When you select it, your business profiles should drop down. Choose the correct one.
In the left hand panel, navigate to the Stores tab, and open the page.
Once on the Stores page, select the green “Get Started” button at the bottom of the page.
On the new page, you are given the ability to choose what will be your main page. This will be the business profile you are using. Every new store you add will be linked to this main page. You will be able to edit and manage all of your new stores from this main page as well.
If your current main page has an address, you will need to remove it. Since the main page represents the entire business rather than a single store, it isn’t eligible to have an address. Your store addresses will be attached to each respective store page added under the main business page.
To remove the current address, check the box at the bottom of the page labeled “Remove address and make (your business profile name) my main page.”
Once you check this box, you will be given a new option to make the current address a new store page. Select yes, and navigate to the “Next” button in the lower right hand corner.
On the following page, you will be told that the store page can’t be created without additional details. Simply click the lower green button labeled “Add Store Details”.
On the next page, you want to navigate to the green icon in the upper left corner labeled “Add Store”.
The lightbox that follows provides a step-by-step guide that you can use here if you need extra help adding a store.
Hit the “Next” button to continue. You will be given the options to add your store details manually, add multiple stores in bulk, connect via API, or connect an existing store page.
We’re going to add the store details manually. On the following page, fill out your store name, store ID, location descriptor, address, phone number, and WiFi network. On the next page, you will be required to fill out the page username, your business’s subcategories, business hours, and price range.
When completed, save your work.
Final Steps to adding your Facebook Store.
For each additional store that you want to attach to your business, follow the steps above. Make sure you’re using accurate and complete information from your Google My Business page.
