Try switching up the cover photo on a consistent basis but make sure there is some obvious notion that it’s clear to users who’s page this belongs to. You can go with nice clean and simple or crazy and colourful. Whatever suits you best.All of this is in order to keep your fans aware of you, up to date on what’s going on in the business (as they will get notified of the changes) and keep them loving your business!


A few recommendations worth testing:

  • Change it up depending on the season, special promotions, or even slow-business months
  • Try UGC (user generated content) such as a photo that your fans have posted – remember to ask for permission of course
  • Consult a designer or expert on which covers look best and really ‘pop’
  • Hold a contest for the best cover photo – wins their look on your page for 6 months and offer an incentive (a coupon or special offer)

We only listed a handful but the options are endless so experiment and have fun with it. Social media doesn’t have to be so serious!
