What a list! Thank you 🙂
I’m not in the digital product arena, but I’m interested in checking out The Rise to the Top’s FB page for the personal stories.
Also wanna check out Andertoon’s page as I like the cartoons he shares here, Hairy Baby (the title caught my eye!), and Mindful Productivity.
Thanks for the comment! There really are some great pages here. (And I love the Hairy Baby name too!)
I was like, “huh, a baby? hairy?” It was enough to make me stop and think even though it’s not true! They get brownie points from me for coming up with that name!
This is exactly what I need – more inspiration and more articles directed right to my Facebook page which I visit everyday. I don’t know if I get all notifications on my news feed though because of the new Facebook settings. But I guess it is worth following for that extra dose knowledge about my small business.
It’s definitely worth following some more pages to get that info directly in your feed. The Facebook feeds have changed so much that I’m not entirely sure this is still the case – but I do believe you can “opt in” to make sure that all/most of the posts from a particular page appear on your news feed. And I think that commenting/liking/interacting with pages will ensure that you see more of their updates as well!
These FB pages are great. It helps me get an idea for my page. The review is just what I needed
since I am just putting together my Face Book page.
I’m glad the post could help!
Very honored to be included among the top Facebook destinations for small business pages. It’s not just an recognition, but a call to work smarter on behalf of small businesses in need of analytics services. Thank you so much for including Zimana.
You’re very welcome! Great page!
It is soon time for me to build a real small business Facebook page when I start a new startup together with a friend. Until now, I have only my personal page and some like pages for my podcasts and blogs.
I will check out Hairy Baby because I am involved in t-shirt project…
I hope the list can help with some inspiration for your new page! Gotta love that Hairy Baby name!
Annie: Thanks again! Have you done a compilation of Google+ pages?
These 46 business pages are really helpful for any entrepreneur. I’ve already followed 10-15 business pages in this list but some are really helpful and new for me. Content Equals Money at number 24 is really good and it’s in my niche but I’ve never heard about it thanks for sharing. Now I’ll follow all these business pages for getting new ideas and make my business strategies more powerful.
I’m glad you like it! Thanks for the comment!
Wow! I’m honored to be in such good company! Thanks for including me, Annie!
