Write a welcome post: IF you want to convince your audience to like and follow you. Create a welcome post that includes details about your business and why people should like your Page. 

Provide information: You could let your potential audience know about what you’ll share, such as special offers, updates about your business and more.

Share meaningful content: Anyone who comes to your Page will see your posts. Make sure you post content that resonates with people and makes them want to follow your business.

Draw engagement: Post something that will draw interaction from your audience. You could add a catchy visual or reference a group, event or story that you posted.

Pin your best or the most important post: Is there important information you want all visitors to your Page to see? A promotion you don’t want them to miss? A top-performing piece of content you want to show off? Put it in a pinned post.

A pinned post sits at the top of your Facebook Business Page, just under your cover image. It’s a great place to put an attention-grabbing item that will draw your visitors in and make them want to stick around.

The pinned post remains at the top of your Page until you change or remove it.

To pin a post you like Click the three dots on the top right of the post, then click Pin to Top of Page.
