How to merge Facebook pages.
If you search for your business page on Facebook, chances are you’ll find many pages for your business. Some of these pages are created automatically by Facebook, some by searches, and some by customers, or even sellers. While having many pages might seem like a good idea, it is actually hurtful to your online reputation.
Why you need to merge Facebook pages.
Having multiple pages decreases your ability to manage your online reputation. You might be focused on your claimed page and meanwhile another page could be going viral in a bad way. The three main reasons for merging your Facebook pages are Reviews, Content Wasting, and Trust.
Reviews are essential to your business’s online success. Customers use reviews to determine if they want to purchase from you. The more reviews you have, the more likely a customer is to purchase from you and the better you will rank online. If your reviews are spread among multiple pages, then they are not doing you any good. By merging your pages, you will also merge the reviews onto one page.
By having multiple pages, you are in a way wasting followers. The content that you post on your main page is not being shared, liked, and interacted with by those who are following your other pages. By merging your Facebook pages, you are creating one audience that can see and interact with all of your content.
Multiple pages will appear spammy and can often scare customers away. By merging and removing other pages, you are creating one page that is managed by you. This will build more trust in your customers.
