Having a company Facebook page, much like having a company mailing list or email list, is an excellent way to keep your customers up to date with your business' latest news, offers and events. If you get your strategy right, growing a passionate base of loyal fans on Facebook can be easier and more profitable than sending out those lame old emails.

It also helps you dominate the first page of results when someone searches for your brand on Google. To see what domination looks like, click to search Google for Noisy Little Monkey and see our results.

Not having one often means that Facebook widgets added to your website cause errors. Currently to be eligible for a vanity URL you only have to have over 25 people who like your page on Facebook.

A vanity URL looks like this: facebook.com/NoisyLittleMonkey and to obtain yours follow the steps below:
