Many business owners have their own Facebook business page to help promote their business. Making use of the insanely long URL that Facebook creates for your page is not the most esthetically pleasing or easy to use especially if you want to share the information on a business card. Using URL shortening tools are a great option for emails and on Twitter but some people might be hesitant to click on an unknown link.
The good news is if your page has 25 or more “Likes” there is a way to make your business page’s URL more professional looking and easy to use that a lot of people do not know about. It is done through your Facebook account and it is very simple to do.
To access the page to shorten your Facebook URL visit www.facebook.com/username/ and log in, if you aren’t already. From here you can access all of your business pages and even your own personal profile. To shorten the URL for your business page, select the page your want to shorten, type in what you would like the URL to be and see if it is available. If it is, be 100% sure of the URL you have chosen and that you have spelled and entered the correct information as once you a change is made it cannot be undone. Confirm the change and you’re finished. It’s that easy and now you have a shortened, easy to remember link that you can confidently display on your website, email signatures and business cards.
