So when you create a Facebook business page, they give you an address that contains your business name along with tons of numbers. It looks something like this, http://www.facebook.com/pages/thatgirlshelley/168090353261321. Did you know that you could customize your direct link (thus create a vanity URL)? It makes it easier for your followers to find your page.
If you are wondering how it is done, read below to get the quick and easy steps.
Steps to Creating a Facebook Vanity URL
Login to Facebook under your administrator account for your business page.
Go to your Facebook business page.
Click on the 'Edit Page' tab located at the top, left of the page. In the pull down, click 'Update Public Info'.
Click on the 'Basic Information' tab located on the left side of the screen.
Locate the 'Username' section and click on 'Change username'.
In the edit box, type in your business name (make sure that you do not include any spaces and any capitals).
I hope you are on your way to becoming vain on Facebook.

In order to be a great entrepreneur, you have to be bold and big or just not waste your time. I recently found the title quote, "Be bold and play big or go home" from Alexandra Watson in this month's issue of 'This Girl Means Business'. I think it is an awesome quote. So how do you play big in your business? Do you try things that are outrageous and innovative? How will you be bold?
Here are some of her tips for building a great business:
You just updated your Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest pages. You have socialized with your fans on your Facebook page and you have tweeted with your Twitter followers. You have checked email and sent back responses. Then you get a ding and you go to check your email again. You are moving extremely fast today and being very productive or so you think. You sit back and reflect on how much you were able to accomplish and you realize that you have spent too much time updating, chatting, googling and not enough time producing.
I get caught in the technology trap too (almost daily). I start out with a plan an then hours later, I realize that I stayed online too long or that I have started googling things that have nothing to do with what I have planned for the day.
I think sometimes everyone justs needs a technology detox. I don't think that I would be able to go a day without technology but I will start setting 'No Technology' time in my schedule. I think the time that I am not online, watching television, checking my phone, or looking at email will give me a chance to listen to my inner creative self. It will give me a chance to work without noise and distraction.
I am going to give it a try. What about you? Are you addicted to technology? How much would be able to accomplish if you just unplugged?
