Step 3: Sign into the Facebook account for the business using your Username or email and Password.

  • It's likely your personal page serves as an Admin for your business Facebook page. You will need to log into Facebook using the Username and Password for your personal page. Once logged into Facebook, your personal page will be bypassed to link the menu or services tab to the business page.
