Profile Picture and Background

This goes without saying, but make sure that you add a recognisable profile picture to your businesses Facebook page. Make sure your audience can find you easily!

As for the background image, make sure it's not only something relatable to your business but that it is engaging. For example, if your business is a bakery, show some appealing cakes as your main background. Draw your audience in!

Tip: For the added wow factor, why not consider integrating your profile picture and background together like the example below.
