How To Create A Custom Facebook Landing Page For Your (Business) Profile in Timeline

Hi, it’s Brandon from www. soldwithvideo. com and I want to show you how to make a Facebooklanding page. Hey everybody , it’s Brandon with www. soldwithvideo. com and I am going to show you how to set up acustom landing page on your Facebook profile. You can use these custom landing pages in a number of different ways. You can use themto show videos, you can use them to host opt-in forms, try to gain more leads, you can usethem to gain more likes and followers to your Facebook profile, you can use them to promoteproducts that show of your products to try to even sell product, or even get people togo over to your website. There’s a lot of different ways you can use them and all youneed to do is a HTML and some CSS or even java code! And you’re all set! So let’s justget right into it. So the first thing we need to do is install the static HTML. iframetab. app. And to do thatyou can just go to the search bar and type in static HTML. iframe. tabs. And you’ll seeit right here with the star icon. Go ahead and click on that and it will pull up thestatic HTML page. So all you do is click the button that says ‘add static HTML. to a page’ and we’ll clickit. This next page will appear and you have the option of adding that to any page youare an admin on. So I’m on several of them here, so I’m going to choose www. soldwithvideo. comand then we are going to click on the add static HTML. iframe’s tab. So now it should be added to our tabs bar but as you can see I already have four tabshere. Taking up all four available spots for the first row. So what is going to happenis his Facebook is going to put it on the bottom row of the last available spot whichyou can see here and you can change it at any time. So if you wanted, go ahead and moveit around. You can click on the pencil icon. . . you choose ‘ swap with’ as you can see here’ swap with’ and you choose the app you want to switch it with. So, let’s just switch itwith my discount code app. And as you can see it switched it. So you can move them aroundanyway you want. So, I’m going to go ahead and move it back just so. . . Just for thesetesting purposes. Okay. So the first thing you want to do ischange out the thumbnail and the tab name. So what we are going to do is hover over theicon and we are going to hit that pencil icon and we are going to choose ‘ edit settings’. So the first thing we want to change is the tab image. We’re going to hit ‘change’. It’sgoing to open up a new window. This will I allow us to add in any image that we wantin place of their star thumbnail. The image size is going to be 111 x 74 pixels. That’syour maximum size. If you go bigger it will resize it and convert down. I recommend using111 pixels by 74 pixels. So I’ve already had one premade. So we hit ‘choose file’. Choosemy thumbnail and upload it. Now I’m going to close that page. And I’m going to hit ‘ok’and as you can see – it changed that for us. So, now we have our custom image in there. So now we’re going to change the icon name. So we’re going to go back over. Hit the ‘pencil’ icon, go to ‘edit settings’ and as you cansee right here. . . It says ‘ custom tab name’. All you need to do fill in the custom nameyou want. Then click ‘save’ and ‘ok’. So let’s just put in ‘ custom name’. We’re going tosave. We’re going to hit okay. Boom, you’re done! The custom Facebook landing page andthe custom name have been switched out. Now we’re going to move to the most importantstep, which is adding in the code for the custom page. To do this, all you need to dois click on the image. You’ll be brought to the edit page. On the edit page, you’ll beable to add in ‘ public content’ and even fans only content. So what’s going to happenhere is that public content is going to be the page everyone sees. Fans or non-fans. You have the option of adding in content that’s only your fans will see and there is a benefitto this. If you create a landing page, you have the option of telling people to ‘like’your page. Or if already are fans of your page, to see certain content. So, I’m going to show you guys an example on how I use this on our www. soldwithvideo. comsite. So as you can see here – I have an icon to get a discount on your next order. I’mgoing to have people click it and tell them here if they want to get a discount on theirnext order. . . All you need to do is like our page, with an arrow pointing up to the ‘like’. So, they are going to go ahead and like the page and when they do they are redirectedto a page that only our fans see. So now it says ‘thanks for liking our page, you canget a discount on our orders here’. Now you can come in here and get a discount on ourorder. So, any time a non-fan goes to our page, we give them an incentive to like ourpage and when they do, they are rewarded with a discount code. Now if someone goes to thepage and is already a fan, they are just automatically brought to our page. Then get the discountcode. So you have the option here with this static HTML. App. You don’t need to do itthat way. You can have one page that everyone sees, like if you’re trying to promote a productor you have an opt in-form, or something like that. . . You can just. . . All you need to dois just add your code to the public top content. So what I am going to do first, is actuallygo to a page I have on my website. It’s a landing form that I have on my website andI’m just going to take the HTML code from that and put it into the public content justto save on time so I don’t have to custom code this. So, I’m going to grab my code andI’m actually just going to go back right into public content and I’m going to paste allof my HTML code. As you can see right there. Now the important thing is if you’re just going to do what I did and grab code off yoursite. . . Make sure all of the URLs are full URLs. Sometimes you might get at URL thatlooks like that. You don’t want that. You want to make sure that it entire URL is pastedin there. So, now that our code is posted in there. . . We can hit preview, to see a sampleof what it is going to look like. So as you can see, we have a video that plays and anoptin-form to try to collect leads and get people to sign up for our newsletter. So nowwhat we are going to do, is go back to the edit tab and you can hit ‘save’ and ‘publish’and now our landing page should be live. So what we are going to do is go to the www. soldwithvideo. com Facebook page. We are going to hit the taband we are going to custom landing page. . . And boom! We have a custom landing page, usingan optin-form to try to get leads off of Facebook. And now we can set up and ad on Facebook targetingbusiness owners and have them redirected to this page and then collect all the leads thatcome from the opt in form. You can do the same! You can use these pages to promote products. So you can run an ad promoting a product and bring them to a custom landing page similarto this. You can create almost any type of landing page you want! So let’s go back tothe edit page. This static HTML app. Facebook actually has a few tools that you can useto custom create this – if you’re not familiar with HTML code. You can also upload an image. So if you have a JPEG or PNG or GIF file, you can actually upload it there and havethe image displayed to all the people that are visiting landing page. You are also ableto add in more tabs. So if you want to add in a few more custom tabs, use the ‘add tabs’button here. You can add in a second, third, fourth. . . As many as you want! And then youhave the option to add in more settings. So you can go in here and add in more settings, if you like. You can add in Google analytics,or you just put in your analytics code to get analytics on how people are getting toyour site. Who was there? How much time is spent on it etc. They also have a bunch of’How to tutorials’ for you to go through if you run into any problems. They also havea drag-and-drop feature to custom design the tab which will help you out. And. . . Scrolldown here. They also have the area here for your fans content – you can have non-fan andfan content – like I showed you earlier. If you’re not putting any content in the ‘fansonly content’ box, everyone visiting your landing page will see the page that you havelisted here.
