What makes a business website great

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.

How Do I Verify My Facebook Businesses Page?

Verifying your business page is super easy, and best of all free! Basic business information is all you need to get verified by Facebook.

Step 1. Create your Facebook business page if you haven’t already. You can do so by following the steps at this link: Create a Facebook business page.
Step 2. Check your page meets the minimum verification requirements. These requirements are that your page:

  • Is published
  • Has a profile picture and cover photo
  • Has posts

If your page doesn’t meet any of these requirements, go ahead and add these now.
Step 3. Click Settings at the top of your Page.
Step 4. From General, click Page Verification.
Step 5. Click Verify this Page.
Step 6. Enter a publicly listed phone number for your business, your country and language.
Step 7. Click Call Me Now to allow Facebook to call you with a verification code.
Step 8. Enter the 4-digit verification code and click Continue.

That’s it! After Facebook receives the verification code, they will begin the review process for your page. Within a couple of days, they will email you in regard to your verification status.
