Merging two or more fb business pages into one

Postby nehal91 » Thu Nov 01, 2018 4:46 am

Our business has many facebook pages. Such as brandname_cityname1, brandname_cityname2 etc.

You don't have any common fb page for the brand name. So, I was thinking that maybe we can merge all those pages into one. So, that the main brand name can have more exposure.

Well certainly your brand name will glow in a national level. But also check that by doing this you are not going to loose any local level customers.

. Find out if, and how many, ‘places’ Pages were (inadvertently) created for your business. Do this by performing a Facebook search. (Tip: Sometimes the search on the Facebook mobile app will reveal an extra Page not seen on desktop. I recommend doing the search twice.)

2. Write down how many check-ins and likes for each Page. Claim all ‘places’ Pages, one by one.
. If you do find several ‘place’ Pages, start merging these. Most of these Pages have little or no content besides the check ins and are a nuisance. Merging those into one Page will be helpful later on in the merging process and there’s no worry about losing content if there’s none on the Pages. Once you have all these Pages merged into one, move onto the next few steps.

4.Let the audience of both Pages know that you are in the process of merging Pages! This can be done by creating an image and posting about it. Pin that to the top of both Pages so all current fans have a chance to see it. If you have a large audience on both Pages, consider running a Facebook ad or a sponsored story. Don’t forget to inform your email list and other groups of online followers

5. Change the name of one of the Pages to the same name as the other if at all possible! In order for the merge to be approved by Facebook, the names have to be as similar as possible

6. Update the ‘about’ information on each Page to reflect the same information about your business. Make sure the same website, the same phone number and/or address and the same description are listed.

7. The smaller Page (the one with the least number of likes) is usually the one you want to merge. Note: You will lose all content from that Page once you merge! If you have pictures or information on there you want to keep, this is the time to go and download that content. The Page you are keeping (usually the one with more ‘likes’) will keep all its content. ‘Likes’ and ‘check ins’ will be combined. Keep in mind that the numbers won’t always add up to double as people might have ‘liked’ both Pages, resulting in no ‘extra’ new like from that person.

If you don't have much negative outcomes then I think you should go for it.

I don't see any negative effect. If they are all from the same language then why not?
