If you have a Facebook business page, you probably have all the information you need for a website. For example, if you visit your About page, you can easily find content for a website such as; our story, your mission and your about text.

Taking this information from your Facebook Business Page and putting it on a website is really easy.

This blogpost will walk you, step-by-step, through how to use this information and create a website with YourSimpleSite.

When you create a website with YourSimpleSite, you just do the following:

  • Choose a template to use as the basis of your website
  • Complete a simple form with info about your business
  • Quickly launch your website live on the internet

The information from your Facebook Business Page will be used to complete the form.

Here’s the step-by-step instructions for creating your website…

Go to YourSimpleSite.co.uk and click ‘Create my website’.

Then choose a category that most closely relates to your business.

This will take you through to the template selection screen. Scroll through the templates until you find one that you want to use. Use the blue labels to help you decide.

Once you’ve chosen, click the ‘Use this one’ button to go to the next step.

This is the form step, where you enter information about your business. Some of it you’ll take from your Facebook Business Page.

Firstly, I’m going to enter my business name; ‘YourSimpleSite’. Alternatively, I can upload a logo.

Next, I need to enter a sentence stating what I do and where I do it. This is really important because your website visitors will know straight away if they’re in the right place.

Next, I need to enter information about my business. This is where you can take information from your Facebook Business Page, like your story, your mission and your about text.

Simply paste it into the form.
