10 Top Small Business Facebook Page Designs to Inspire You

Facebook pages is the place where a lot of inspiring  innovation, marketing and design is happening on the social web.10 Top Small Business Facebook Page Designs to Inspire You

Major brands are often worth checking out as they can wow you with the the latest in innovation such as Facebook stores, inspiring embedded videos and designs that look like they cost a fortune. If you want to obtain some good ideas it is a good business practice to emulate elements of the most popular Facebook pages in the world such as Lady Gaga or one of the top company Facebook pages StarBucks.

Most companies think they don’t have the budgets and resources to take it to that level.

Some smaller companies who have realised the importance of a Facebook page as an extension of their website and blog  are also providing great examples of what can be done on Facebook without big budgets.

Social Media Examiner is running a competition for the best Facebook pages for small business so I thought it would be worth taking a closer look at some of the finalists.

Keep in mind that design is not just how a Facebook page “looks’ it goes much deeper than that it is also how “it works”
