Have you set up a business facebook page? If so, how did you do it and how does it differ from a personal page?

If you are referring to business fan pages...The main difference is facebook not only allows you to link your website to the page, but also a description of your business, location etc.

There are no major differences between the two besides the business page allows you to go into more detail about your business.

Do you need a regular facebook account to act as some kind of administrator before you can create a business page?

LOL this is what I got so far. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Lawn-Care-Marketing/265945570146363

How do I make a better url for that? Maybe without the number? Also what else should I do with it to improve it?

Easy as pie. To get your custom url, just go to: http://facebook.com/username

As far as improving the "look" of the page. Facebook is not eye candy and never has been. Now, you used to be able to create a custom html page but they are doing away with that and using "timeline" instead. My team is still trying to figure out a method to code a custom "timeline template" so we can offer full HTML pages again.

Just keep posting, posting, posting on the FB page.

I think you now have to have a few likes to get the better URL I went ahead and liked your page to hopefully help you out. I have not taken mine live as I am not sure how many of my customers will like it and if I have no likes I think it will look like a bad business until I get a few people on the page.

LOL I am overwhelmed with the facebook site.

I heard you need to create a separate account to manage your fan page (business page)

Is this the case and if so, how do you set it up to manage?
