How to connect your Facebook business page with your personal profile

So you’ve got a business page on Facebook but people are still finding your personal profile and trying to friend you there.

If you want to keep your personal profile separate from your business page, and grow those “Likes” on Facebook, listen up.

Here’s a simple way to make sure that those finding you on Facebook know about your business or blog so you can grow your “Likes”.

Connecting your personal profile to your business page on Facebook

  • First, log into Facebook
  • Then head to your Facebook Page that you are an admin of
  • Click on the “Admin Panel” button in the upper right hand side
  • Click on the “Manage” button, then “Edit”
  • Select “Featured” from the list on the left
  • Under “Page Owners” click on “edit (or add) featured page owner”
  • Select yourself (you should pop up since you are the admin for this page)
  • Hit Save

Note!  Your Business Page will now show you as an admin with a link to your personal profile. In turn, the “About” page of your personal profile will show and link to your page.

This is where it makes it easy for non-friends to see how to follow you, on your Business Page!

Want to go one extra step?

Add a note to your “About” profile on your personal profile suggesting that visitors come and “Like” your Facebook Business Page.

A fun and easy note like the one below will do the trick.

“So happy you found me! Interested in {enter your what your business does here} then come and visit me on my business page {enter link}”

  1. I did complete this tadah tip, thank you for the easy to follow steps!

    • Hi,

      I’ve tried to manage it for a hour or so, but it’s impossible to be logged in into BOTH the personal and the business page at the same time on the same computer, so I don’t understand how you can manage this…. (when I first log into my personal page then go to the business page, it has a different menu structure than if I’d been logged into only the business page alone, so I can only see the “Featured” link on the left if I’m not logged into my personal page.)

      Any idea how to resolve it? (even tried to log into the two pages with two different browsers, but no success either.)

    You made my day Angela! Way to go! Your Facebook Page looks great, with the new linkage going on :)

  3. Thanks for the tip! I thought since I listed it in my employers, that was enough. This adds more visibility.

  4. We implemented this after we read this on your post. Thanks for the tip! Looking forward to reading more tips from you. Will definitely subscribe on your newsletter. Mahalo!

  5. A simple tip that makes a HUGE difference. Why I have not done this before I don’t know why. You post made me to do and TADAH – it’s now done! Thanks Sarah!

  6. I had already connected my biz and personal pages.. but I LOVE your suggestion about adding a note suggesting to visit/ like the page! I’ve added a note to mine :) I’m looking forward to the newsletter!

  7. MAYBE I’M DUMB BUT I DO NOT SEE AN EDIT ON TH TOP RIGHT SIDE OF MY PAGE???? HELP

    • SarahB says:

      Hi Jean, Since Facebook changed to timeline it’s a bit different now. I updated the post to reflect the change:
      Click on the “Admin Panel” button in the upper right hand side
      Click on the “Manage” button, then “Edit”

      • Hello,

        I’m having difficulty linking my personal Facebook and business accounts.

        I’m logged in as my business page, I’m looking up at the Admin Panel but there is no ‘Manage’ button or ‘Edit’. There is an ‘Edit Page’ button and then a ‘Manage Admin Roles’, is this the same thing?

        If so, I’m trying to add my personal email address which is linked to my personal Facebook account but it won’t allow me to. I’ve ‘liked’ my business page from my personal account but won’t make any difference. What can I do?

  8. Great tip, Sarah! Your tips were easy to follow…especially liked the ready-for-me copy (one less thing).

  9. I signed up for your emails two months ago, but only today got around to opening and reading this first one. Already I got this great tip from you and implemented it immediately. I was embarrassed to post this since it is so long since this tip came from you, but I see from the above posts that other people didn’t get to your February ideas until April, just like me, so I then felt brave enough to post here.

  10. So glad to have connected with your site and tips Sarah! Had a friend send a link via email so I joined your newsletter. This tip alone is so useful!! Going to share your site with fellow authors/cooks. Thank you!

  11. Hello,

    These instructions did not work for me. I’m trying to link my business page to my personal profile. Should I be starting from my business page or from my personal page? When I go from my business page, and click “Featured Owner”, all I see is an icon with a faceless individual. I checked the box next to this icon but I’m still not seeing my business page reflected anywhere on my personal page. What am I doing wrong? Do these two pages have to already be connected somehow? I am profoundly confused and would appreciate any assistance. The FB help center is very un-helpful. Thanks!

  12. I was told to do this, but no-one told me how. These instructions were easy to follow and now I’m connected. Thank you.

    • Jacqueline, you have learned what I have learned: When Sarah tells us to do something, she explains it so well that we can really do it with ease.

  13. I also get just a suitcase icon.

  14. Amanda Sue says:

    I’m really excited to say, I finally did this! I thought they were linked already….I don’t know if I thought the magical biz-fairy did it, or if I assumed FB was smart enough to link them on it’s own (haha!) but I did it today. :) I always love your tips!

  15. Awesome blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Kudos!

  16. Thanks Sarah. I had updated the About section on my personal profile, but I didn’t even know that this was an option on my business page. Done! :)

  17. I’ve recently build my new business website and Facebook page as well. I’ve less ideas about Facebook marketing, therefore glad to enrich my knowledge reading through such informative allocation. To improve my Facebook business page likes and business promotions such tips will help me a lot. Thanks for handy contribution.

  18. I just did this. We’ll see if this helps, though with the new system we have to pay to send messages to a non-friend on FB now, so I’m not sure how much this change things.

    Thanks for the clear instructions!

  19. Thanks for the tip – you made me look good in front of a client!

  20. Porsches along with Ferraris and Lamborghinis definitely outweigh that
    of any domestic built Corvette, as well as any other
    American made automobile. Commercial advertising is important to everyone in business, but
    the best advertising is word of mouth. If the vehicle remains unrepaired, you have your lemon law claim in place and you have essentially undermined their “tampering
    defense” by yourself throwing it into the open for an inspection specifically to either prove
    or rule out the tampering.

  21. I’m no longer positive the place you’re getting your information, but
    great topic. I must spend some time learning much more or working out
    more. Thank you for wonderful information I was on the lookout for this information for my mission.

  22. There are several reasons you may want to choose bigger breast implants, but before you do you should consider
    seriously all of the possible ways your choice may impact
    your life. Having plastic surgery is a big deal, so there is an inherent amount of
    concern that comes along with such a decision. These days
    lots of breast enhancement methods are there which helps women
    not only to increase the size of their breasts but also increasing their firmness or making their
    sizes equal.

  23. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  24. Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.

    Any recommendations?

  25. Good answers in return of this issue with real arguments and telling everything concerning that.

    It’s a good idea to have separate email promotions for prospects and customers, too, because you typically need to send different information to the different groups. Therefore it’s better to always
