Awesome Facebook Cover Photo Ideas to Build Your Business

Facebook is the number one place to be if you are a business owner.  Here are some incredible statistics that will inspire you to get your Facebook page up and running for your business.

  • Facebook is the largest online social network
  • Every 20 minutes 1 million links are shared
  • Facebook has 1.55 billion monthly active users
  • The country with the most active Facebook users is Canada
  • Facebook business pages with 1000+ fans (likes) will generate more traffic and leads to their website than businesses with less than 1000 fans (likes)

Why is your business on Facebook in the first place? To ATTRACT new leads and generate more revenue, right? So if you are looking to get the word out about your business and build your brand you really need to think of your Facebook Business page cover photo as a BILLBOARD for your business. It is another way to ADVERTISE (yes, I said it) what you do and to attract new clients and customers.

A Killer Facebook Cover Photo to GROW Your Business

Creating a cover photo that resonates with your audience will help you generate more likes, comments and engagement. Engagement is key to increasing your exposure on Facebook and getting the word out about your business.

Your Facebook cover photo size (for your business or personal page) should be 851 x 315 pixels. If you create a cover photo that is smaller than these dimensions Facebook will stretch your photo to make it fit and will result in a fuzzy or blurry image.

Tips for an AMAZING Facebook Page Cover Photo

  • It should be very clear and obvious to people what your business is and the services or products you offer
  • Choose colors that reflect your business and your brand – keep them similar to your website colours
  • Add testimonials or contact information on your cover photo
  • Keep the vibe the same as the mood and tone that you use on your website
  • Add a call-to-action on your cover photo that tells people what you would like them to do (ex. sign up for my newsletter, watch video, shop now etc.)
