How To Verify Your Facebook Business Page

Start the year off right!  Do an inventory of your social media sites to ensure that you have claimed and/or verified your social media profiles.  I have already talked about verifying our Google + page.  It was a Google prerequisite for your Google+ page and your Google Maps profile to go live.

I want to remind you that you should also verify your Facebook business page.  Verifying your Facebook business page is easy!  Here are directions on how to verify your Facebook business page.

  1. Log into your Facebook account and navigate to your business page.
  2. Go to Settings > Page Verification > Edit
  3. Follow the prompts.   Facebook will call you immediately, so please verify your page during business hours when someone is available at work to answer your phone.
  4. The Facebook call will give you a verification code that you will type into the space provided on the Facebook computer pop up window.
  5. Voila!  Your page will be verified.

PS>> if this does not work, you can send Facebook a variety of acceptable business documents as a means of verifying your Facebook account ownership including the following list of items.  Just follow the prompts.

  • Business utility or phone bill
  • Business license
  • Business tax file
  • Certificate of formation
  • Articles of incorporation

If you need help verifying your Facebook business page, contact Sharon Kantor Bogetz at Cutting Edge Practice at (847) 370-9131.  Sharon has been doing dental marketing and Internet marketing since 2002!

2016 Social Media Research Shows Facebook Still #1

Social media research - Dental Facebook Marketing - Cutting Edge PracticePew Research Center posted the results of their latest social media research study entitled “Social Media Update 2016” on Nov 11, 2016.   Read the entire article to learn more about the demographics of social media use in 2016…    The Center conducted a telephone survey from March 7-April 4, 2016 and spoke to 1,520 adults from across the U.S. States.

The Pew Research Center reported that 8 out of 10 or 79% of adults used Facebook.  This is a 7% increase from their 2015 survey.  Pew also found that 76% of the adults using Facebook checked in and used Facebook daily.   Other social media outlets trailed behind with Twitter use at 24%, Pinterest use at 31%, Instagram at 32% and LinkedIn at just 29%.

How should you apply this social media research to your dental marketing plan for 2017?
