HOW TO GET YOUR MUSIC PAGE VERIFIED ON FACEBOOK

How To Get Your Music Page Verified On Facebook

Written by Omari MC

Despite popular belief, getting verified on Facebook really isn't as hard as it seems. Musicians, athletes, public figures, politicians, and the like often want to get verified to build credibility amongst their audience. One of the ways to do that is through getting that little coveted blue badge next to your name on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube.

To get verified, you'll need a few things prior to submitting your application

  1. An existing public music page under your artist name
  2. A history of native content posted to your page
  3. Some media references that have your name or image
  4. A website (If you don't have one, check out How To Make A Music Website (That Sells)
  5. The Facebook Mentions Application

HOW YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE SHOULD LOOK

Make sure all the details on your page are filled out to the best of your ability. Have a detailed, grammatically correct bio.

Head to the About section of your profile and create a custom username if you haven’t already. Have your start date filled out, genre (e.g. Hip Hop Instrumentals), email (on the same domain as your personal website), press contact, awards (if applicable).

This is letting Facebook know that the account is worth verifying. The more detail, the better.

NEXT STEPS

After you have some good content posted to your page (videos, articles, song links, plain text, photos, memes) it's time to get some ads running.

For one reason or another, Facebook is a little more kind with the verification after you've run a couple ads. You shouldn't have to spend any significant amount of money, but enough to know that it's not just a spam account.

Try setting up a couple ads to run for $5/day for a few days.

WHERE TO SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION

The link to submit is here: https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/356341591197702

You'll simply attach a valid ID and select the page you want verified. Then within about 24-48 hours you'll get a yes or no on the verification.

If you don't get it the first time you can wait another 30 days and try again. Sometimes you may need to get a few more fans or promote your music more effectively.

It does not take a vast amount of fans to be verified on Facebook. Don't let that deter you. It does take a personal website (you own the domain), good content posted on Facebook, a valid ID, and minimal ad spend.

YOUR CREDIBILITY AFTERWARDS

Credibility is something that is changing in our world. Years ago, it wasn't like this. But today, people seem to always judge others based on how many followers they have, what platforms they use, if they are verified and so forth. I'm not saying this is first, but it's a reality.

The credibility of being verified can lead to better collaboration opportunities, more music sales, concert tickets, merchandise, etc.

At the end of the day though, the blue icon is just 1,256 pixels on a digital screen. But it's more than that. If there's other people with a similar artist name to you, the verification helps. If you're telling a record executive how to find you, the verification helps. At the very least, it's worth an attempt.

I'd love to hear about your verification experience. Comment below with your fan page URL, and how the process was for you!
