Facebook Custom URL

I recommend every business have a Facebook fan page.  Marketing that page is a bit tricky because the domain name or URL is so long and ugly.

For instance, my old one looks like this – http://www.facebook.com/pages/SEO-by-Swaby/137031038432?ref=nf.  That’s going to look real pretty on a brochure or other marketing piece isn’t it?

What if there was a way to go from that to something like this – www.facebook.com/seobyswaby?  There is!  Just get 25 fans.  Once you have 25 fans, you can get a custom domain name…if it’s available.  So the race is on.  Once you create your business fan page, invite people who would be interested to join it.  Then you can get the custom subdomain you want!

I’ve been able to convert my top three Facebook properties to custom domains and I’m pretty happy about it.  What about the old URL links?  They still work!

There you have it…how to get a custom Facebook URL.  Don’t have 25 fans?  Invite your friends!

    Is this Facebook’s new feature?
    Really good…with this URL, it definitely helps in attracting more traffic on your facebook page.

    Making 25 friends is not a big deal…one can do it easily.
