How to Manage a Multi-Location Business on Facebook (STEP BY STEP)

354 ratings | 9883 views
Managing a multi-location business on Facebook used to be a daunting prospect. But not anymore. Gone are the days when you had to create and maintain a business page for each of your business locations separately. With the latest “Facebook location” feature you can now manage all your shops or offices in just a few clicks from one central place, your Facebook business page. This, not only will give you the chance to increase your business visibility in Facebook search results, but also makes the process of publishing posts on all your pages a lot faster, and above all, you can manage each location page independently. But these are only some of the benefits, there is more. In this video, you will learn what other advantages this feature offers for your business as well as how to implement multiple location pages yourself step by step and click by click. Here is the link to to access your business location dashboard: https://business.facebook.com/business_locations/ For more info on how to upload business locations in bulk visit: https://business.facebook.com/business/help/224119578024377?helpref=faq_content To download the spreadsheet template go to: https://bit.ly/2QzhBO8 For more video like this one why don’t you subscribe to my channel by clicking on this link: http://www.youtube.com/c/RankingacademyUk?sub_confirmation=1

Hello! Thank you for your extremely informative video. Before I created the multi-location pages for a business, I read online that Facebook would give you the option to port over reviews from your existing initial location page, when it transfers that into the parent page, and then creates a new location page. Facebook never gave this option for me. Do you know if it is possible to port over the reviews from the parent page to a location page? Thank you in advance!

Thanks for your comment. I'm afraid i am unaware of the porting over option

I love your videos. They are very informative. I do have a question if I may ask. I work with 2 colleagues, so no shops but services (webdesign) under the same name. But we are at 3 different locations. Would it be wise to use the multi-location? and what if we already have 3 different Facebook pages. How can I link already existing pages without losing content? Love to hear from you. Txs.

I personally don't see issues on registering the different locations. I am not 100% sure how strict facebook is but would assume that you can' regitered hundreds of locations otherwise you would be spamming. Merging facebook pages can be tricky and present multiple issues. You might want to read this thred for more info https://www.localsearchforum.com/threads/facebook-page-merging-advice.53584/

Thanx for a great Video. I have a strange problem with my location pages now. I created multiple location. But Now I want to delete a location. I went ahead in Location Manager and deleted the address BUT the page I created for that location is STILL visible? How can I get rid of this page? Any help will be hugely appreciated!

I must say i've had problems deleting pages myself. I trid to delete pages ages ago but they still exists. Not sure why this is happening

Rachana Nabar (29 days ago)
I am unable to add location pages to my parent page. When I try to add an existing location page, I get an error that Page name needs to be the same as the parent page. So I tried changing the page name via Page Info in About section of the page. But it wouldn't let me change it. Gives an error that a page of this name exists in my business manager. So name cant be changed. Please HELP!

Hi Many thanks for your videos - I have a question - I sell my product in other shops for which I would like to add locations on my page so people would know where to buy my product - is this possible?
Ranking Academy (1 month ago)
That doesn't sound like it would be possible or a good idea as it may conflict with the shops location where you are selling your products from (if they have one on facebook)

I have multiple locations, do you suggest each location has an admin, or should it be centralised through the main company page to keep control? And how do we advertise on each individual specific location page?
David Gemmill (1 month ago)
@Ranking Academy thank you for your response. Are admins able to do paid advertising/ boosting on each specific page?
Ranking Academy (1 month ago)
It depends of the size of you operation. The bigger it is the more difficult it becomes to manage. So if you have 2 or 3 locations you can probably centralise everything with one individual managing all locations. If you have 50 it becomes impossible

Hello! I have followed all the steps, I have two locations, but my problem now is that no one can check in anymore to any of the two addresses of my stores... How can I get back to the original page with the first address? Or how can I check in again from facebook & instagram??? My check in has disappeared...
PROPS by Nefelly (1 month ago)
@Ranking Academy I changed my page into "Main business page" and I followed all the steps and created two more pages as you said, yesterday. Do you think it needs time to appear as a check in? Or should I somehow contact facebook and report it as a problem? Thanks for the prompt reply!!!
Ranking Academy (1 month ago)
People should b able to check in your location pages like any other page. How long ago did you create them?

Ryan Hegter (1 month ago)
@Ranking Academy i deleted each location and it removes details of the store, However it shows the following msg now "There was an issue loading information for this location, please try refreshing the page." nothing i do can delete that, thanks you any assistance you have

You will need to delete the children pages first then the parent page

Ranking Academy Hi thanks for response! Yes I can see both locations on facebook business manager under locations, but I can’t find them on instagram which is puzzling.

Hi Soul ray. Not quite sure why they wouldn't show up on Instagram. Can you see both locations on Facebook?

How do page likes work? Do all likes go to the main page, or do the individual location pages each have their own likes?
Kaleb Wallen (3 months ago)
@Ranking Academy Thanks for the reply, so the current likes will go to the main FB page and one of the locations, and then the second location we add will start from scratch?
Ranking Academy (3 months ago)
Likes go to individual location pages

I have followed your steps and successfully created two locations for my business page. However, after I created those two locations, my customers and myself can no allow able to check in, neither the main page or each location pages. How come the check in location not appear and how can I check in after having multiple location pages.
Borislav Tasic (1 month ago)
Hi Helen. I have the same problem as you. Did you solve something? I 'm not able to see new locations after created them. Please help
Justin Morris (2 months ago)
@Ranking Academy so there is no way for a customer to check in to one of your locations from their newsfeed? Like when I first open my facebook app under "whats on your mind" there is a place to check in but I can no longer check in now that I have a locations page.
Ranking Academy (4 months ago)
You won't be able to check in from the main page as it is not a location. To check in from a location users will need to access your location page, then under the main banner you should see 3 dots. Tap on it. A menu you display from where you can check in

Anyone know if there are downsides to having multiple Facebook pages for one business? I am working with a business now that already has 3 different facebook pages for their locations....

You should have one main page with a page for each location as mentioned in the video

Thanks for your video! I'm looking for a way to publish posts to other pages (for marketing purposes) from a location page. I know it's possible to like another page from the main page, but is it possible to like a page from a location page? Please help!
Ranking Academy (5 months ago)
Hi Denielle. I don't think it is. I've tried and I couldn't find a way of doing it. I think you have to post as the business and not a location but I'm not 100% certain
Damien Vanden Bergh (6 months ago)
When setting up location pages for a business that has multiple locations how does the business name that has been given to each page "Business Name (location) effect NAP with other citations like Goggle My Business, Yelp etc? Great tutorial that was very informative.
Ranking Academy (6 months ago)
Your business name must stay the same for each location page you create. Only the address should change. That way you give visibility to each location separately

@Ranking Academy thank you so much! have a great day. keep up the great work. i'm a fan.
Ranking Academy (8 months ago)
Hi Sara Only places that have a category listed can appear as nearby places. Make sure that you've added all of your basic Page information, including the name, category, address, phone number, store hours, username and short description about your business. The strength of your Page's connections matter as well. Results are personalized and different for everyone. If someone wants to find a specific business in a particular city, places that their friends have recommended or checked into will be displayed higher. Additionally, results that are similar to the people, places and things that a person is already connected to may be ranked higher.

Hey there, I just merged two locations and now all of our photos are MIA. Anyway to get them back? Our original facebook page was about 10 years in the making.
jennifer coan (9 months ago)
Hi Luc, I didn't lose them! They are on the Brand page not on the location pages. I did lose some info on second location page but I had just created that page recently and there was no history to recoup. I understand now that there is a risk of losing info when merging. many thanks!
Ranking Academy (9 months ago)
Hi Jennifer. Here is what Facebook says when merging pages. Content from the merged Page, such as posts, photos and the username, will be deleted during the merge so it sounds very much like you lost your photos unless you saved them before the merge. Also, once merged, it cannot be undone.

It takes a while for sitelinks to appear in Google and it depends on many factors such as the number of links you have pointing to your site, how old the site is etc...Keep building and it will happen ;-)
