What You Need
To setup a radio station Facebook page, you just need a Facebook account. If you don’t already have one you can signup here.
Create Your Facebook Page
Next up, head to the Create a Facebook Page. Now select Entertainment – From the drop down menu choose Radio Station, and finally enter your station’s name and click Get Started.
Now your Facebook page should be created and look something like this.
At the moment there’s nothing currently on the page, so it’s up to you to update it with your radio station’s details. Here are the essentials you need to update in order to make it stand out and look great.
Add Profile & Cover Photos
The profile photo is what visitors will see when your page alerts them via Facebook or shows up on their feed. Set the profile image as 170×170 pixels – Upload it by clicking the image and selecting Upload Photo.
The cover photo is the header which shows up at the top your page, so it’s the first thing visitors see. Set the cover image by 820×312 pixels.
Update About Info
In the About section, add in your radio station’s details. Add in things like when your station started, your email address, and the story of how your station got up and running with your mission statement.
Click Edit Page Info – In here add more details like your broadcasting hours, your location, and contact details. Be sure to fill out all of these details so it’s easier for visitors to find out more about you and your station.
