    Hi Guys
    Was on another forum tonight (I know I should be working!) and they were sharing their Facebook fan pages. Reminded me that my page was well out of date so I have re-created it tonight. Any of you want to become fans for me and I will return the favour.

    Do you mean how do you set one up? I was going to PM you and suggest this might be suitable for you.

    At the very bottom left of any Business page is a link that says "create a page for my business" after that it is pretty much like setting up a normal page.

    Yes. My IE was playing up so your link didn't seem to work which is why I put it on again - then that didn't work and I knew something was afoot.

    In good old firefox both work fine.

    I realized I had set a page up at http://tinyurl.com/mnxb4n

    It isn't as professional as yours though - my homework for the weekend :)

    Can you please become fans of my friend Jonathan's page.

    I am hoping to indoctrinate him into the joys of Twitter and UK Business Labs but need to start off gently with him;)

    Sorry to bring this one back from the dead, but in my naivety, I didn't even know there was a business page option on Facebook.

    We'd already created a group for Docmail users, but thanks to the above, I've started on a "Docmail - Print and Mail" page.

    Thanks for the info!

    I wanted the full URLs to show above...never mind. You can set up your own URL once you have 25 fans.

    Looks OK and a time saver that they group these services together. However, it appears there is nothing that you couldn't do for free and that way you can pick and choose what services you want too.

    You might find this useful...it doesn't convey everything but is the slide deck from a recent workshop I ran - Grow your business with social media - Grow your business_using_social_media_final

    Next best thing to being there :)

    Good evening all,

    The papers have started noticing the Castoff.net revolution...have you?

    Leaving Facebook... | Facebook <- Link to the Rotherham paper

    Get on over to CastOff, grab a unique user ID and get listing, items listed under 99p are FREE to list, you can take up to 4 photos of one item at no charge, and also the first 100 buyers to buy £100 worth of items get a present from Castoff!!! Plus, use our reserve price feature for items over £25.00 - no sale, no fee - it's so easy. CastOff - 'something for everyone'

    Kind Regards

    Matthew Jenkins

    Here's a tip for publicising your Facebook Page...

    If you own a Facebook Page for your business use the Share Button (bottom left) to remind your Facebook friends (personal friends) of your business. I suggest you use it once a month and give them a reason to visit your site eg a special offer or a special tip.
