Facebook business pages offer you a valuable avenue to communicate with your clients, prospects and centers of influence.  A business page provides you with a way to connect with people interested in your business without having to connect with them using your personal profile.  You also receive a public page that any Facebook user can see and that you can promote on your website and blog.  If you are not familiar with Facebook business pages, I suggest you read my previous article, How to Setup a Facebook Business Page.
