Bring your business to life with a new Facebook cover that accurately depicts all facets of your businesses with this how-to guide.

The seasons are changing and so maybe it’s time for your Facebook cover to change too.

In today’s world, generating Facebook leads is easier than ever. Simply put, you can use a Facebook cover update to get a jumpstart on driving traffic to your page. Think of this as a teaser for your Facebook post that actually promotes your business with relevant information along with the video or image, a blurb that describes the image and a link back to your website (also known as a call to action).

Have a flick through some of the recent professional (or professional-looking) photos you have of your business. Would any of them make a great Facebook cover?

Remember that the Facebook cover photo size is 820 pixels wide by 312 pixels tall on desktop, but mobile users will see 640 pixels wide by 360 pixels tall.

The above example is by Yarraman Caravan Park, who identified an opportunity to showcase more of the business using 3 different images of beautiful landscapes to give potential customers an insight into what to expect. Not only does it inspire a sense of travel, discovery and nature but offers more value and is far more effective than showcasing their caravans (which people would come to expect to see as though it’s a Caravan park).
