Creating social accounts for clients - best practice?

2 replies
Hi all

I come from a graphic design background and am new to the marketing scene. Whilst I have had experience with designing content for social media I have never set up or managed social media accounts on behalf of a client.
I am wanting to know what the best practices are for setting up and managing/transferring social media accounts for the client. This client only wants me to setup the page and put a few posts up then give them the details

Facebook: I setup a fake facebook account - it was a massive pain of having to use the client's mobile number to activate it and able to setup the business page - I assume this isn't standard practice.
Instagram & Twitter: setup with the client's preferred email

After all is setup, how do you deliver to the client? In my mind I put the login information into a booklet of our agency design.

Is it worth me setting up a new Facebook account to create client's pages then transferring the ownership of them once they wish to take over?

Thanks in advance.

    I would have the client go through the process of signing up. Then, have them send you their login information so that you can go in, create the page, do the graphics, etc.

    I don't think Facebook will allow you to set up multiple accounts as I believe you'll get some of them shut down. I could be wrong on that, however.
