Creating a Facebook Landing Page

There are many benefits to having iframe landing pages for your Facebook Page. You can use an iframe landing page to: brand your Facebook Page for your business, generate more likes for your page by providing a strong call to action, build your email subscriber list, develop relationships with customers, generate sales, and provide fans with exclusive content. Whether you are a business or a computer enthusiast a Facebook page is a necessity.

So, let’s create an iframe landing page.

Step 1: Install an app to host and render the page code.

First you need to install an app to host and render the page code. There are several third party apps that can do this, but my two favourites are Static HTML: iframe Tabs (my personal favourite app and the one I use most frequently for clients) and TabPress Custom iFrame Tabs (also a great app that has a more user friendly interface).

There are several WordPress plugins that you can use so that the code is hosted with your hosting provider, but going that route is a topic for another time.

To install the app, you are first going to do a search for the app. Scroll down the app page and click the “Add to My Page” link from the left hand side of the page.

Choose the page you want to add the app to and click the “Add to Page” button, then click “Close.”

Once you have done that, you are going to navigate to your page. You will see the app link at the bottom of the list of navigational links under the profile image on the left hand side of the page. Click on it to open the app.

Step 2: Add code to the app

Now you are going to add the code for your page to the app. You can use HTML, CSS, and JavaScript code in either Static HTML: iframe Tabs or TabPress Custom iFrame Tabs. This will allow you to add and format images and text on the page, embed videos, add an opt-in form, or . . . really, the sky is the limit.

You are going to add the code for what you want non-fans to see in upper box and the code for what you want fans to see in the lower box. Then save and view your page as a non-fan and a fan.

Step 3: Manage Page Permissions

The final step in this process is to set your new landing page as the default landing tab. To do this, you click on either the “Edit Info” link under the Page name or the “Edit Page” button in the upper right corner of the Page. You are then going to click on the “Manage Permissions” link. Click on the drop down by “Default Landing Tab” and select the name of the page you would like to make the default landing tab. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click “Save Changes. “Bonus Step: Change the Name of Your Landing Page

If you want to change the name of a tab link, click on the “Apps” link while you are editing the page info. Choose the app name you would like to change and click on the “Edit Settings” link under it.

Type in the new name and click “Save,” then click “Okay.” Now you are ready to communicate more efficiently to with audience.
