In this tutorial, I assume you don’t even have a personal Facebook account so we’re going to get really in depth. So let’s get started!
Learn the Basics Before You Run Facebook Ads
Facebook is not just jumping in and running an ad. It’s not that easy. There’s a whole lot more to it. There’s a whole lot more things you have to do. And if you don’t know what you’re doing, you just lose money. I don’t want to see you do that. Okay?
The best way to get rich really is to be able to put a dollar in advertising and get back $2, right? I mean, that’s the coolest thing in the world because you know, you would put all the dollars in the ad.
How to Create A Facebook Account Step By Step
Step 1: Get Your Email Ready
First ensure you already have a working email. I highly recommend a gmail for signing up to Facebook. In this example I will use Samplecompanytraining@gmail.com as my email. Then proceed to Facebook’s sign up page.
Step 2: Fill the Sign up Form
The screenshot below shows the Facebook’s sign up page.
We’ll sign up an imaginary person whose name is John Smith. We have to put it in our mobile number or email. So I’m going to put an this as Samplecompanytraining@gmail.com. Facebook will insert one more field asking you to reenter your email. So you’re going to need to do that.
Yeah. And we’re going to put a password in the New password field. Then you’re going to select your birthday from the three drop down menus displaying Jan 3 1994 (default birthday).
Since this is how Facebook identifies you, you want to make sure you put accurate information in there. If you want to put inaccurate information, make sure you remember what it is because they will ask you this.
Select either of Female or Male button. Finally just hit the Sign Up button and you will have an account. Simple.
Step 3: Email Confirmation
Now as it says on the screenshot, to continue using Facebook, you’re going to need to confirm your email.
Now if you put a phone number in there Facebook would send you a text message instead, but they sent me an email. So let me confirm that.
And the way you can do it here, as you can actually just click the blue button that says Connect to Gmail and it will try to log into your Gmail accounts.
Step 4: Connect Your Email
A new window titled Sign in with Gmail comes up, asking you to choose the correct email. We’re going to select the email we created earlier.
You will be redirected to Facebook’s confirmation page showing you your account is now confirmed. Click the OK button and you’ve now got a Facebook account! It’s that simple.
Add Friends Page
Now if you’ve got some friends on Facebook already, you may want to click the blue Find Friends button and select some of those people. But I’m going to skip that page.
So I just go to click the NEXT button at the bottom right corner. Also skip any subsequent pages asking me “Find your Friends”.
Upload Your Profile Picture
Now the next thing you need to do is upload a picture. But you don’t have any pictures yet, so you’re going to need to click the green button that says Add Picture.
A new dialogue window will open where you can find the location of your picture in your computer.
You want to get a really good looking picture of you because a lot of people are going to see it. So I’ve selected a really nice looking picture as you can see in the screenshot below.
Facebook is going to keep asking you to find the people that you know. You can skip it for now if you want. You may also want to click the blue Take a Privacy Tour button which is not a bad idea.
Opening Your Facebook Account Page
Now click on your name on the top left (see the arrow in the screenshot above) to see what your page looks like.
At this point, Fcebook is asking you if you want to put your cover photo. Now click the OK button to dismiss the little window and go to options for uploading your cover photo
How to Upload A Cover Photo
Since you don’t have a cover photo for now, click on the Select Artwork menu to go to Facebook’s photo gallery (see the screenshot below).
Select the cover photo you like from the Choose Your Cover Artwork window. I’ll just pick a nice little photo on the middle right corner.
You can drag to position it any way you want, depending on how you want it. Then click the Save Changes button. Now I’ve got that beautiful background and that beautiful picture of my profile right there.
You can also edit your profile picture by clicking the white Edit Profile button (shown with a pencil icon).
You can also look at your activity log. For me, Now the only activity I have is this nice pretty picture. And so yeah, that’s how to create a Facebook account.
How to Create A Facebook Page
Okay, so the purpose of setting up a Facebook account is for us to be able to run ads. So the first thing we’re going to need to do is to have a business page to run the ads from.
So click the little arrow on the top menu (follow the red arrow 1) and then click on the blue Create Page drop down menu (follow the red arrow 2). Now watch the video above from 03:43 time stamp to learn how to create your business page.
