    hi all. How do any of you that use Facebook, set up a page to advertise your service. Does it have to be a page created through your existing personal profile as that's tge only way I can see to do it and wasn't sure if that's the best way.

    Thanks

    I create a page from my profile like you said
    Then I invite all friends to like it and get them to pass it on
    Then i search for all local business groups and swap and sell sites and post my link on each daily with a little description
    Gets a few jobs at first then it slows down but keep posting and i get a couple a week still after 5 months

    Cheers davesboy that helps a lot. Do you find the work you get through fb substantial ie. The customers stay with you and don't just cancel after a few cleans?

    once uv got the page up n running spend time searching for local people / businesses in your work area . add them as friends, then when u post updates on your business page they will see it and might go with you.
    dont add as a friend alifrickinbaba ,you wont ever get him spending with you

    now and then i do the paid FB advertising,always with good results. i believe if you could afford it, an ongoing paid facebook advert would lead to a massive round

    I have been lucky and only got 1 proper messer out of all my facebook work
    Maybe as they are either friends of people on these business pages actively looking for a windie rather than me knocking their door on the off chance

    If you do that facebook will shut it down eventually
    They just did it to whizzbizz mark
    Add it as a business page to your personal profile and that is ok
