How to... Claim your business on Facebook Places (Step 2)

Following on from last week's post that showed you how to check in & set up your business on Facebook, today I'll show you how to claim your business as your own.

1. Find your business
First of all you need to find your business, the quickest way to do this is to Check In, as I showed you last week. If you have already followed last week's instructions your business should now display on the Nearby Places screen, as Business Systems Services (UK) Ltd does in the screenshot below (again, taken from the Facebook for iPhone App).

Once you have checked in, visit your profile page on the main Facebook.com website and you should see a post similar to below:


Click on your company name and you will see your business page.

2. Claim your business
On the left hand side, below the check in history and above the Share button, you'll see a link that says  'Is this your business?' Click this and you'll get a pop up box askign you to verify that you are an official representative of the business.Check the tick box and click Proceed to continue.



3. Fill in your details
On the next screen you will need to fill in your company details.


4. Verify your ownership
There are two ways to verify your ownership, as described in the form above. You can add an email address to your personal account or upload a document that proves your address.

I think Facebook have adequate help available on this, so I won't go into detail. If you do want more information then leave a comment below.

When you've filled in your details and chosen your verification process, click submit and you should get a message saying:

as well as an email from the Facebook team telling you that they have recieved your inquiry.

If you have added a second email address, you will need to verify it, so do this now.

5. Wait!
You now need to wait until Facebook get back to you to let you know it has all been approved.

Good luck! Let me know how you get on.
