What is Facebook Verification?
Have you ever seen a grey or blue tick on Facebook pages and wondered what it means? The little tick signifies to users that your page has been verified by Facebook as legitimately who/what it claims to be. This seal of authenticity not only looks great, but Facebook verification can actually help you boost business.
Why Verify Your Business With Facebook?
When your Facebook business page is verified, it can be easily found in searches. Facebook gives verified pages a boost in the search results as users prefer to deal with a verified page.
The small verification tick also quickly conveys that your page is the real deal. Users are more likely to trust the information provided by a verified page, and less likely to go somewhere else. On a verified page, users are far more likely to like, comment, share or generally be converted to leads.
