A great Cover Photo can persuade your customers to spend more time on your Facebook page中文中幕无码亚洲视频 and want to know more about your business. The position is great , right at the top of the page and centered, and so is the size (larger than your profile picture for example). Your cover photo is definitely the first thing that catches the eye when opening your restaurant’s Facebook page, and you have the freedom to change it as you like. So don’t shy away from branding yourself through your cover photo!

Example: You have just introduced a new type of pizza in your menu and want people to try it out? Take a delicious picture of it and post it as your cover photo.

2. Rearrange your Facebook Tabs

Did you know that the right display of Facebook Tabs can even help you bring in more revenue?

You can add almost anything, from a TripAdvisor app to a table-booking app, from Events to Maps, from Add a Review to Order Online.

  • You’re having a big re-opening soon and you create an event on Facebook, then you can move the Events tab to top row to advertise it.
  • Or you can now take online orders inside Facebook, so you want the Order Online button  to stand proud in plain sight, ready for clicks from hungry customers.

To help you create and control your preferred Facebook tabs, here’s a great step-by-step tutorial from Bright Spark Media:

3. How to place a link to a Facebook Tab inside a post

In this app-crazed world, it’s easy to see why Facebook Tabs are key to your restaurant Facebook page. And there’s one more way to make people click through. You can create a link to a Tab inside a Facebook post. Here’s how you can do that! Let’s assume that you have just introduced a new item in your menu, a ‘secret recipe’ pasta in our case, and want to let people know that it can be ordered online using the Facebook Online Ordering App.

  • Start a new post and choose “Upload Picture” ; choose a picture of your new pasta and upload it.
  • Then go to the row of Tabs and click on the small arrow in the right to make them editable.
  • After you’ve made the tabs editable, move your cursor over the Edit icon in the top right corner of the Online Ordering Tab. When you click on it, a list of options will appear.
  • Click on “Link to this Tab” and a new window with a link will appear.
