I was about to suggest to a friend that they should take advantage of the real estate of their Facebook fan page profile pic, when I could not easily find an example on any of the pages I had liked. Why shouldn’t you take advantage of all the free ad space that Facebook has to offer. If you do not have the tools to do this yourself contact us or a local graphic designer to help.

How to Make the Best Use of this Free Space
1. Do this first – upload your full-size profile picture – 540 pixels high and 180 pixels wide. Grab your designer or Photoshop friend!
2. Keep your branding consistent. On your Fan Page, Facebook allows you to promote your products or services – so go for it!
3. Include a photo of you in your profile picture – its about connecting with people.
4. Include your core offering so your visitors can see immediately how you can help them.
