Facebook Banner/ Digital Banners
To brighten up your profile the option on Facebook / Digital Banners to add a banner or fan page offers an excellent opportunity to creative’s & agencies to showcase their design smarts and put a smile on people’s faces always.
There are strict guidelines as to what appears in a banner and however, Facebook banner size is fixed. So first we’ll look at the most important guidelines you need to follow and when creating your banner will look at other design considerations to take into account.
Avoid copyright infringement:-
You must avoid using images that are not yours when you create a Facebook banner as per Facebook guidelines – as well as the law in general .This isn’t the worst thing in the world if you think about it. You might as well use a unique image if you want your Facebook page to be unique and you certainly don’t want a public dispute erupting with the owner/creator of the original image.
No calls to action:-
To add a call to action on your banner you’re not allowing i.e. please click, like, share, buy, download etc. Towards the like button adding an arrow directed is similarly off limits.
No sales pitch:-
On your banner officially you are not allowed to mention a price or a promotion or a special offer. Probably best to avoid anyway – after all a picture is worth a thousand words and I have seen a lot of ecommerce websites flouting this rule and seemingly getting away with it.
No contact information:-
On the banner Facebook won’t allow you to put your contact information – email, phone number, address and so on. In the about section these must mention of your page.
Facebook banner size:-
Always make sure you are creating a banner with the right size. Facebook banners are is of 851 x 315 pixels. When you’ll upload it and if you have not created a banner with these exact dimensions than Facebook will ask you to adjust the picture to the page & you may end up cropping an important part of the picture. So keep these things in mind always while creating it.
Watch out for image resolution:-
When you upload them Facebook lowers the resolution of your images so to avoid displaying a fuzzy banner always it’s best to play around with different settings when exporting them for the web.
Write your page’s name:-
When you create a Facebook banner you may not allow to add marketing information but you can add your name or the name of your business. So writing your name distinctly will help and make an instant impression because the first thing your fans will see is the banner.
Try to fit your banner to your page’s theme; don’t just choose a generic photo that could fit for any activity. To make people remember your page too many companies settle for generic lifestyle shots. Ask yourself if you run a cake shop whether your Facebook banner could fit the page of a gardening business and If the answer is yes than you might want to consider redesigning.
Showcase your best work, if you’re a great photographer or illustrator. Don’t hesitate to spend a little time on this design if you’re a designer – it’s worth it in the long run. To show skills and creativity Facebook banners are a great space. Sometimes people are not having so much time to contact you directly so they can connect with you or your brand online – so you have to make the most of it!
Keep it fresh:-
On a regular basis if people are likely to visit your Facebook page than consider varying the content of your banner often to keep things fresh always.
