Yes, your Facebook page can serve as a website, but I don’t recommend it. Here’s why.
- You’re limited on what you can enter in the “about” section of your Facebook page – not so on a website.
- It’s not your platform – it’s Facebook’s. You are just “renting” their space for free. Your website is yours you have complete control.
- Your website has several roles:
- Information on your business
- Blog articles that generate leads
- A Call-To-Action that captures leads
- Though Google respects Facebook and links that you post on Facebook help with search engine optimization (SEO) they’re not indexed in the Google search engine like posts from Google+ and Twitter.
- A website looks way more professional.
Though, if you’re just starting out and your website is not finished, yes, Facebook can serve as your primary introduction to your business for a short time. I wouldn’t keep it that way for more than a month. Creating a free WordPress.com blog/site may be a better solution and then you can export your blog posts when your website is finished.
