How can i make my account an official page by face book …How do you get an official facebook account ☑ (blue check mark)?
All in all, the process for us to set up our profiles to look verifiable took us a few hours of time and less than $100 in advertising fees. After much anticipation, both of us were awarded the tiny blue digital badge of internet credibility. I don’t know why, but for me, this was actually pretty thrilling.
Regardless, immediately after Blake initially announced that he had been verified after his initial trial week, I went through the process and was verified within 48 hours. Then a handful of our friends reached out to us for advice.
They were surprised to learn how simple the application process is.
Despite the common assumption, verification seems to have nothing to do with the number of fans a page has.
With proper positioning, a little effort put towards content, and a tiny advertising budget, we feel that anyone can get their public page verified on Facebook, as long as they fit within one of these categories: Public Figure, Actor, Athlete or Musician.
To get verified, you will need a few things prior to submitting your application.
You will need:
- An existing public page under your name (you can’t use your personal page).
- A history of native content posted to your page.
- Some media references that have your name or image.
- A website.
- An iPhone or iPad with an internet connection (Android devices should work in a few months).
- The Facebook Mentions Application.
With that said, let’s get into how to get verified on Facebook:
Step 1. From your computer, if you are not an actor, journalist, musician or athlete, change your category from blogger, business person, writer, author, or whatever category you may have your page listed as to public figure.
Step 2. Under awards, put the publications you were in, the titles of the articles, followed with links.
Step 3. Write a long form bio describing who you are and what you do. Mine is a bit long, so this is an example of Blake’s.
Step 4. Download Facebook Mentions on your iPhone.
Step 5. Once you download the application and open it up, click ‘Get Started’
Step 6. Type in your name. Since you aren’t verified yet, your page won’t appear. That’s okay though.
Step 7. Since your page isn’t verified yet, click ‘My page isn’t verified…’
Step 8. Now a form will load. Select the page for your personal brand.
Step 9. After you select the page for your personal brand, upload a copy of your photo ID and add a website link, then click submit.
Step 10. Run boosted posts or ads for around $5 a day for a week. Blake ran an advertising budget around $3 a day for a week. I did around $10 a day for 48 hours.
After submission, now all you can do is wait. You’ll get notification for whether your profile was verified in a week with a blue check mark, plus you get to use the mentions app which is super clean and easy to use.
