Facebook Friday - The Landing Page

I finally did it! It's an important part of the social media process and I'd been putting it off forever and ever but I finally got off my butt
(not really, I sat the entire time it took to create this)
and made a LANDING PAGE for my facebook page.

You can check it out here:

...and if you're already one of my peeps
you'll need to click the Welcome tab
on the left side of the page.





I decided to use Wix.com to make it
and it was super easy... and FREE!
One of the reasons I went with wix
besides the free part
is that I don't know what is going to be happening
as far as the Business Page Timeline goes.
Will it be forced upon facebook business pages?
Will the apps we now use be compatible?
I don't know yet so there is no sense in spending my cents
on a custom facebook page.
Not to mention, most of my customers are small businesses
just starting out... so free is good!

If you want to get started, just click the link at the bottom of my landing page. It will take you to wix.com where you can pick the template for your page.

Remember while you're working on it to save frequently!

Play around with it a bit. You can change the background colors. Add social media links. Use different effects on the buttons they have. Upload your images and make them link to your shop.

When you're all done... hit publish!
Follow the directions on installing... which is really just clicking some buttons and they install it to your page for you.

Once you have it in place, go to the Edit Page button in the top right corner. You will want to go to Apps on the left side menu. Click on edit settings for your Wix app and you can rename your landing page. They name it My Site, I changed it to Welcome. Then you'll want to go to Manage Permissions, again this is on the left side menu. Here you can set your Default Landing Page. Save it and you're done!

Newbies will be taken directly to your fancy new landing page and your faithful fans will go directly to your wall.

Feel free to ask me questions if you get stuck. Once you have your landing page up and visible, leave a comment on my facebook page so we can all check it out and tell you how wonderful you are :)
