Who doesn’t love free word-of-mouth advertising? Facebook Places is just that for your business. When your business is established on Facebook Places, customers can check-in, then their check-in automatically alerts their friends where they are. This is a great marketing tool for your business and the best part is that it takes little effort on your part. To utilize this awesome Facebook tool, you must first claim your business on Facebook Places. Once that is complete, you can customize the information about your business.
How to Claim Your Business on Facebook Places
- Add your business to Facebook Places by checking into the business on your mobile device.
- Search for your business on Facebook.
- Claim your place. Underneath the image on the Places page there is a hyperlink that says, “Is this your business?” When you click on this hyperlink the verification process will begin.
- Lastly you will be asked to verify your listing. Facebook will request a business email address or a document that has the business’ name on it. Once you supply this information and all information is verified, you will have the rights to edit your Places page. (note that verification can sometimes take up to a weeks’ time)
