It is essential to have an eye catching facebook page banner for your brand/blog.Don’t underestimate this and make sure your cover photo attracts people in.
When you create a cover page,below are the main things to note.
Facebook page banner should be 851*315 pixles.If you dont create the banner with the exact size,Facebook will ask you to adjust the banner to fit when it is uploading.This may lead to remove a part of the important part of your banner.
Dont just share a photo as the facebook page cover.Try to make a collage or specific design that suits with your facebook page theme.
Keep it fresh
Try to change the cover/banner time to time.If you have any new activity in your site,you can upload a new banner with some highlights of that event.A new change is always attracting the eyes of page fans.So,they will visit the page at least to check the changes.
Below is my recent banner for facebook page.
How to create a facebook cover easily?
Now this is the question.If you are a techy person,you know how to use most software and you are able to prepare it of your own which fits to right dimensions.On the other way you can hire a person to create a banner for you.Anyway,usually I do work related with the blog by myself.That is fun and I improve my knowledge by doing so.
Until recent I used another photo editing software to create banners.It took some time to adjust dimensions and to upload pictures.
But,recently I found PicMonkey & love its features.It has a feature to create a facebook banner and no brain is required.Only you have to do is to select the lay out & some nice photos you want to add.
Here is how to do.
(it is free and no registration or downloading is required to create a facebook banner)
Click ‘Create a Collage’
Yay! It is done! No need to adjust dimensions or even think about it.Click ‘save’ and save the banner to your computor.
Upload it to your facebook page.
Anyway,I use the free version and still I am happy with these basic features.
