How to create a custom Landing Page on your Facebook Fan Page | Spark Logix Studios

It’s not common practice… yet. However, customizing your Facebook fan page will become important if not essential. If you have a fan page and are keeping it up, creating a landing page is the next step. This tutorial will walk you through how to create a landing page on your Facebook fan page.

The first thing you’ll need to do is add the static FBML app to your fan page.

GETTING THE APP

  • Visit the FBML Fan page
  • Click “Add to My Page”
  • “Add Static FBML to your Page” pop-up will appear
  • Select which Page you wish to add Static FBML to

First Step Setting Up Facebook Landing Page

 

Next, you’ll need to set up the app to work on your page.

SETTING UP THE APP

  • Visit the Fan Page you plan on optimizing with your custom Splash Page.
  • Under your Fan Page’s custom profile image click on “FBML”

Click FBML on your Facebook Fan Page

  • A new, relatively blank page will open, click “Edit Info”
  • On the left sidebar click “Apps”

Click Apps on the left sidebar

  • Find the FBML App in the list
  • Click “Go to App”

Click go to App to edit

 

The next step demands you know basic HTML. If you don’t know HTML find a qualified professional who can write the code. Also, make sure your design is consistent with your current website and your message. A graphic designer will be useful for this step as well.

EDITTING AND ADDING THE CONTENT

  • Enter Box Title: This is what will show on the sidebar under your custom profile image.
  • FBML “the body” this is where you’ll enter the HTML for your page. Keep the width to a strict 520px wide. The height isn’t as important, it’s up to your preference.
  • You must host all images on a third party website. A few examples would be: your website (your host), Flickr, PhotoBucket, etc.

Edit the FBML Page

 

You’re not done yet. At this point the only way to see the page is to click on a link under the custom profile image. You need to make it the landing page when a new visitor visits your Facebook fan page.

ENABLING THE DEFAULT LANDING PAGE

  • On your Fan Page click on the “Edit Page” button in the top right hand corner.

Click Edit Page

  • At the “Default Landing Tab dropdown” select the “Box Title” you created and want to use as the landing page.
  • Click “Save Changes”

Select the Correct Tab You Want

 

At the time of this post the landing page is only available as a default when the visitor is not yet a fan. So, new visitors to your Facebook page will see your landing page first. If someone is a fan already they’ll have to click the link under your custom profile image to see the custom page.

 

Here’s an example of what a finished product looks like.
