					  Setup a Custom Landing Page for Your
             Facebook Page




So you have finally gotten around to creating a page for your business or club on
Facebook.

You have secured a vanity URL and your blog’s posts are automatically being pulled into
and displayed on your Facebook page.

Now what?

Why not set up your own custom landing page?

If you haven’t heard of a landing page before, it is the page on a website that you arrive
on.. or land on.

When someone browses to your Facebook fan page for the first time, the landing page is
page that is displayed to them.

Facebook allows you to configure landing pages for new visitors (ie non-fans), so that
they land on that custom page instead of your wall.

The goal of the landing page is to convert new visitors into fans by providing them with
information that makes them want to become a fan.

This guide will show you how to set up a custom landing page.
