How much do you charge to set up a facebook page for a business?

    I have a client who is a counseling service. How much should I charge to set up his page (not including updates and maintenance)? It will have the standard info page, with photos. Thank you for any suggestions!

    What is their objective for the Facebook page? Are you having logos/graphics made specifically for the page? Opt-in box? What is the page supposed to accomplish for them?

    You can charge anything you want. I find out what the client's objective is, then determine if Facebook fits for the objective and what it takes to meet the objective. If there is a lot of coding and graphics to be created - and the customer value to the business is high (in other words the business makes more than $1,000 per sale to a new customer - or the lifetime value of the customer is high) then I would charge above 4 figures. If they want a hobby page to just fiddle around (I wouldn't take the job) then charge less. A short simple book to read is "How Much Should I Charge?" by Ellen Rohr. A 45 minute read and it gives you basis for any type of business. Most people charge way too little to keep their business from failing.

    I appreciate your comment. When you say "setting up a Facebook page is not a big deal", what do you envision that to be? How much would you charge and how long would it take you to do it? There are different levels of complexity you can offer. I have clients that when they get a new customer it means over $5,000 in revenue per customer. They have no clue how to use Facebook to build a community around their business. If they just opened an account and started posting, it would bring them nothing - so they should pay nothing. If I show them how they can use Facebook to bring in just one customer a month, that's an extra $60,000 per year to the business. I've actually had clients ask me why I charge so little for the amount of business they can attribute to the social media campaigns we help them develop.

    I think standard rates for coding and graphics apply. Other than that, setting up a facebook page is as easy as a few clicks.

    You're right about Mari's page and the company behind the setup of that page does fantastic work.

    I think we are talking two different things. If you just want a page set up then you charge very little.

    I'm talking about a marketing campaign utilizing Facebook. That is what I meant by asking what the objective is. If the client wants just a page setup and they do everything after that, then however little you want to charge is fine.

    As I said there is nothing wrong with whatever you want to charge. The client determines if they see the value and want to pay it.

    I think user Aristoinc actually had a good point about how to charge for the facebook page - but I would take it with a grain of salt. Although a facebook page may be "easy" to set up, if you choose the right firm to help you with an intuitive design and strategy for how to use it, then that expertise is what you pay for...

    if im not mistaken a business cant set up a page on its own, i think when i looked at the rules it said that only a real person can set up an account but then they can talk about thier company as much as they want

    Faebook allows a page for a business/organization.

    From Facebook's own Help section:
    What is a Facebook Page?
    Pages are for organizations, businesses, celebrities, and bands to broadcast great information in an official, public manner to people who choose to connect with them. Similar to profiles, Pages can be enhanced with applications that help the entity communicate and engage with their audiences, and capture new audiences virally through friend recommendations, News Feed stories, Facebook events, and beyond.

    You can create and manage a Facebook Page for your organization from your personal account. Please note that only the official representative of an organization, business, celebrity, or band is permitted to create a Page.

    Developing an entire campaign with measurable results is a lot different than just designing a page and if clients can see a return on that investment then what you charge should be no different than what any marketing company would charge.

    But for just building the page, I generally charge a few hundred depending on how many pages, forms and other interactive stuff that they want.
    My minimum is $200 but can go a lot higher. Usually I do them in addition to other services and rarely bill for just the page.
