How to Get Your Facebook Page Verified

Most people think that you need to to have more than 20,000 followers for you to get your page verified on Facebook, but that’s just not true! I’ve seen several Pages and heard stories of people telling how they got their page verified with only 700 to 1000 Page Likes. It’s not about how many page likes you have, it’s all about how authentic your page is. What’s even more surprising is that you don’t have to spend tons of money for ads for this, a small budget is enough.

Here are some things that may help you become qualified to get your Facebook page verified:

  1. Put a lot of info in your profile. Get your page info completely filled out, if possible. Pick an appropriate category for your page: a blogger, business person, public figure, etc. Link your personal Facebook account to this page and make your profile picture from your personal account public by default so that people can view it. In the info section include a long description of who you are and what you do.

  2. Post content regularly. It’s pretty obvious- but you need to post on your page! It doesn’t need to be updated everyday but at least post a few times a week.

  3. Run boosted posts or ads for a week. Advertise your posts by running boosted posts or ads. You don’t have to spend a fortune. You can run ads for as low as $2 a day for a week.

There are two different ways to request your page to be verified. You can request using a phone verification method or by using business documents.

Steps to Verify your Facebook Page via Phone:

  1. Click Settings at the top of your Page

  2. From General, click Page Verification

  3. Click Verify this Page, then click Get Started

  4. Enter a publicly listed phone number for your business, your country and language

  5. Click Call Me Now to allow Facebook to call you with a verification code

  6. Enter the 4-digit verification code and click Continue

Steps to Verify your Facebook Page via Business Documents:

  1. Click Settings at the top of your Page

  2. From General, click Page Verification

  3. Click Verify this Page, then click Get Started

  4. Click Verify with Documents

  5. Upload a picture of an official document showing your business' name and address (bills from your company work great for this)

After Facebook receives your verification code or business document, they will review your info to confirm that it matches public records and will contact you about your verification status within a few days. Keep in mind that you're not required to verify your Page.

It typically takes 3-6 days for Celebrities, Sports, Music and Politics for your page to be verified and 7-45 days for a Business/Organization Category.

I hope this helps you get your Facebook Page verified! If you still have questions, please comment- I’d love to help.
