Yesterday, a friend asked me how I was able to add both “Visit Group” and “Send Message” buttons on my Facebook page so he can also add “send message” and “call now” buttons to his Facebook business page so it can be easier for people to take an action on his page.
Well, I explained how it works for him and I’ve decided to share same with you.
If you would like to add two call to action buttons at the top of your Facebook page, you will need to enable “private messaging” and also add any call to action button to your page excluding the “message” button.
For example, if you want “visit group” and “send message” buttons to display on your Facebook page, follow the steps below :
- Navigate to your Facebook page, ‘settings > general > messages’ and tick ‘Allow people to contact my Page privately by showing the Message button“
- Hover over the call-to-action button below your Page’s cover photo and select “edit button”. Set the button to any desired call to action (excluding “send message” button) and save changes.
Your Facebook users will now see two CTA buttons on your Facebook page whenever they visit your page on desktop and on mobile devices.
You, the admin of the page will not see both buttons when you are signed in to Facebook.
If you want to see both buttons while signed in, click on … (3dots) usually next to the ‘share’ button & click on ‘view as page visitor’.
Alternatively, you can sing out of Facebook and view your Facebook page to see both buttons.
I hope this helps & gives you a peace of mind 🙂
