Section 1: Course Overview and Creating your Profile and Cover Photos Before We Start
Course Overview
2 pages

I included a PDF with the correct sizes for your profile and cover photos with links to more information if you want to create your own photos but don't know the correct dimensions. Knowing the right dimensions for your images can save you time and make uploading your profile and cover photos an easy process.


In this lecture we will create your Facebook profile and cover photo using a free online tool that is easy to use. The tool allows you to upload images, drag and drop, resize, add text and download your images which are then ready for upload to your Facebook page.

2 questions

This quiz will test your knowledge on Facebook profile and cover images.


This lecture is intended for people that might not have a Facebook account. You can skip this lecture if you already have an account. The video is just over 2 minutes and walks you through the process of creating a Facebook account for yourself.

Section 2: Create Your Facebook Page

Finally, the lecture where you get to setup your Facebook page. You will be surprised when you discover it's actually much easier than you thought. I will walk your through each of the screen you have to complete when setting up or creating your Facebook page. From selecting the right category to uploading your profile photo.


In this lecture we will upload the cover photo we designed earlier. The Facebook page has now been created and the first thing we want to do is add the cover photo before we do anything else, such as adding your business information and creating posts.

Section 3: Facebook Admin Tools and Settings

In this lecture you get a quick overview of the Facebook admin tools that allows you to manage your page. This brief overview will ensure that you know where to look if you need to find something on your page.


This lecture features an overview of the general settings on your Facebook page. While it is very easy to make sense of most features on your page (even for a beginner), the settings are important. In the settings, you can control whether you want to publish or unpublish your page, control who sees your page, delete your page and more.


This lecture shows you how to update information such as your address, telephone number, web address, email and more in the about section of your Facebook page. The about section is where people see all your business information and this needs to be completed especially if you are a local business and want people to know more about your business and be able to contact and find you.

Section 4: Adding Content to Your Page

Learn how to post to your Facebook page, how to add a photo, schedule a post and add your location to a post.Posting to your page is easy, especially if you're already using Facebook. For anyone completely new, this walks you through what you need to do and what features are available when posting on your page.


In this lecture you will learn how to upload a video as well as insert a YouTube video in your posts. Videos are a great way to get the attention of people visiting your page so it's important that you know how to add them. it is a simple process and you'll be able to upload your own as well as YouTube videos at the end of this lecture.


In this lecture I will show you how to add a photo album to your page. Sometimes you want to add more than one photo or want to be able to share an album with people and this lecture will show you how to to just that. You will also see how you name your album as well as add a description to each photo.


In this lecture I will show you how to boost a post to reach more people. Boosting is a form of advertising where you pay Facebook to put your post in front of other people of similar interests. it is a great way to reach a bigger audience and get more fans if you have a small budget.


In this lecture I will share 5 quick tips that will help you create more engaging posts. Just posting to your page without putting much thought into it can actually be harmful to your page. people want interesting information that entertains them and add value to their lives. The also want it short and to the point. The 5 simple steps will help you stay on the right track.

3 questions

Test your knowledge on what makes a great post?

Section 5: Bonus

Images are a great way to create more engaging posts. The problem is that most people don't know where to find images. I will share with you where you can download images for personal and commercial use with no attribution required.

Instructor Biography

Aloysius De Klerk, Web Designer, Online Marketer, Programmer

Hi there

Welcome to my Udemy (profile) page. My name is Aloysius. I am a web designer, online marketer, and app developer.

My passion for web design started about 15 years ago. Web design was mostly a hobby but I also designed sites for quite a few companies ... after a few years I had quite a few clients and it was then that I decided to do this full time and leave my job as a banker.

Being a web designer gives you the freedom to work from just about anywhere. It is fun and you get to pick your own clients :-)

I joined Udemy as a means to share my knowledge with others. After all, what's the purposes of learning and knowing stuff but you don't share it?

My other passions and studies include photography, chess, I also have a BA in Health Sciences & Social Services with specialization in Psychological Counselling.
