Once your Facebook Page is set up and you are an Admin, there are a couple of things to remember.
1. Liking as your Page, vs liking as yourself. When you use the Desktop version of Facebook and click on your Page, because you are an Admin, by default anything you post on your Page will be posted on behalf of [BusinessName], not yourself.

A client asked the other day "How do I get onto my Facebook business page?" (I'd previously set it up for him as part of a website development project).

For the last couple of years, I've been encouraging small business owners to set up a Facebook Page, and to use it to funnel information through to their website, with varying degrees of success. In one project during 2013, we managed to get a brand-new community-based not-for-profit website from 0 to over 5000 unique visits in a single month, across a 4 month period, which was a great result for very little financial outlay.
Unfortunately, in December 2013 Facebook changed an algorithm and now the possibility of information posted by a Page being seen by followers has dropped dramatically. Some brand Pages are reporting that post reach has declined by up to 50%.
