Social media is a powerful form of marketing, and when promoting your support services, it can be a great place to start. Being an independent support worker on Mable means you have the freedom to build your own unique support business and Mable provides you with tools and resources to do this. Explore this guide to know how you can create a business Facebook page for free, and use it to build you small business.
Step 1: Create a page
Log into your Facebook account, in the top bar, click on ‘create’ and select ‘page‘ from the dropdown menu.
Step 2: Choose the page type
Select ‘company, organisation or institution.’
Step 3: Enter your business information
Select ‘community service.’
Create the name of your Facebook page. This name will help people find you in search results. Please use the following name for your Facebook Page:
‘*Name* – Independent Support Worker on Mable.
Step 4: Add your bio and link to your Mable profile
This step allows you to tell people briefly what your page is about. You will be able to add more details later in your page settings.
If you’re offering social support and domestic assistance, for example, we recommend writing something like this: ‘I am an independent support worker on Mable, offering social support and domestic assistance. Book me directly on mable.com.au’
After writing your bio, the next step allows you to add a link to your Mable profile. You can find your unique link to your Mable profile in the accounts section: (Login, click on ‘Accounts’ and scroll to the bottom of the page. Click ‘download flyers and cards).
Step 5: Profile picture
To ensure potential clients recognise you when they search for you on Mable, use the same photo you have used on your Mable profile. If your current profile photo needs work, our guide has easy tips.
Step 6: Finding potential clients
In this step, Facebook asks you to tell them more about the people you want to connect with. Please note anyone can find your Facebook page. However, this step will allow Facebook to put it in front of potential clients.
All ready to go!
You can send your new page’s link to your friends, family and on Facebook groups to promote your services. You can also upload a cover photo to your Facebook page.
Remember, if a potential client contacts you via social media, make sure you introduce them to the Mable platform. By keeping your communications and bookings on Mable, you are protected with our safeguards, including a suite of high-level insurances, secure communication tools and our Trust & Safety Team available to help you.
