But your Facebook fan page should be unique to gain lots of visitors as most of the fan page look same in terms of design. And one of the simple way to distinguish your fan page from others is to create Landing page. Landing page is a tab where a new visitor is taken before he/she is a fan of that page. Static FBML application offers you to create a beautiful landing page but you should familiar with the HTML coding and everyone is not good at it. You can check this link to set up static FBML application for your Facebook fan page.
But there is a new service called Pagemodo that allows you to create a ‘About us’ or ‘Welcome’ tab without any technical knowledge of HTML coding or graphical skills. Pagemodo allows any person to create a Welcome page through a simple to use generator where you can choose from pre-defined layouts, add pictures, choose colors and fonts, add description etc and simply install it on your Facebook fan page with just a click.
This service is free for everyone for creating custom pages which will include their footer. They will come with paid version in the future where you can include Google Analytics, custom tab-names, limited edition layouts etc. But they will always offer a free version in the future with an option of upgrade to paid ones.
Let’s see how it works :
Firstly, sign in with your Facebook account, and choose your layout from 2 pre-defined layouts.
Now editor will open where you can add pictures, description about the website or blog, choose colors and fonts etc.
After tweaking with all options, I have created a landing page for our Facebook fan page which is shown below. I think it will be more enough to inspire you to create your own for free.
After creating your Facebook Fan page with the help of editor, click on “Install” button shown on the bottom of the page. Allow the application to to get access of your facebook fan page account. Follow a series of steps and you’re done.
