Social Media Guide: Custom Facebook Landing Pages (that you can do yourself)

After writing extensively on why a landing page is important to your Facebook fans, I was asked to actually show how it’s done. So in this post, I’m going to give a step-by-step guide to creating your own custom Page Tab which will be your landing page. By using this method, you’ll have total control over the entire look and feel. This isn’t extremely difficult, but if you don’t wish to do it yourself, you can always pay someone for it.

Here’s what you are going to need in order to create the landing page:

  1. Administrative rights to your Facebook page.
    • You are going to need to be able to install the tab onto your page and make edits, so make sure you have access.
  2. A place to upload your landing page html file and images.

  3. Image editing capability

  • Illustrate what your business does
  • Give the prospect a reason to be a fan

These two principles will make a landing page go from good to great. Let’s see some examples from NHL, Coca-Cola, and one of my favorite non-profits: Team Rubicon. They may differ in message and presentation, but their technique is the same: the tell their audience who they are and give them a reason why they should be a fan. Here’s Coca-Cola: Continue reading
