Create a facebook fanpage in 10 quick steps

Do you know those great Facebook pages from Coco Cola, Skittles or Starbucks? They have customized their Facebook pages so it looks great and fits their brand image. Making this can be quite complicated and take some good programming (and web design) skills. But there are a few things you can do yourself quite easily to improve your fanpage. Of course artd webdesign is happy to help you but the steps below might help you on your way.

 


1. You need a personal Facebook account to be able to create a page for your company.

2. Once you have an account you can make a new ‘fan pagehttp://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php
You can select the most appropriate option, probably a company/organization.

3. Once you have filled in all the information, remember to upload a nice logo. This can be 180px X 540px for the optimal effect.

4. At the preferences (edit info) you can set permissions: who can see your page? You can limit it to countries or age.

5. You can choose your landings page under the standard tab option.
This is where you can later select your customized page (welcome for example)

6. You can make a nice url, in stead of the facebook.com/76789545 link. Go to www.facebook.com/username/ to choose one. Then you can send a nice link to people with facebook.com/companyname

7. To customize your fanpage go to https://apps.facebook.com/iframehost/?ref=ts and install the static iframe app. Of course there are other options but this is a really fast way.

8. Once you have done this you can insert some html code into the field. In this html area you can design the page like you want it, you can create Non-Fan Content and Fan Content in different areas. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to write html code. You can use an html editor like dreamweaver or if you have a company page with an cms system you can make a new page in the rich text editor, look at the code and copy paste this into the iframe field. If you have already have a page on your server you can include it with an iframe.

9. That is basically it! Don’t forget to recommend your Facebook page to your friends, link to it on your website etc.

10. And the last step: become of fan of artd webdesign, the leading swiss joomla agency.
