Tip #1 Maximize Your Use of Your Timeline

Facebook has given you a lot ways to expose your business with the new timeline on business pages.

First you have your cover photo.  After reading several blogs by Facebook experts, I have found some common advice – one is ‘change your cover image regularly.

I don’t know about you but when  I get my cover image right, I check it off the list and don’t want to go there again!   But I can’t do that.  So I make several images at one time (or go to fiverr and have 3-5 created) so that I can just start rotating through images.

Remember:

  • 851×315
  • no advertisements
  • <20% text
    NOTE: this is a newer rule

Need some ideas?   Here is a good set of examples pulled together by Blogging Tracker:
