Fan Page Welcome Tab

Social Media Marketing Strategy post –

An entrepreneur member of our Strategic Online Marketing Mastermind on Facebook asked a great question about how did I embed a video on my welcome tab. Here’s my answer to her:

“Hi Carol. Great question!

I’m actually in the process of writing an article and creating videos about the steps I took to create this fan page. I hope to complete that shortly, and I will share that with the mastermind.

I got the idea of creating a welcome tab from Mari Smith’s course FANtastic Fan Pages.

I’m not sure if you have a fan page already or how comfortable you are with adding applications on Facebook. So, if any of the following steps don’t make sense to you, please let me know.

I started out by recording the video on YouTube. I then installed the Extended Info application onto this fan page. To do this, you would click the “Edit Page” link below your picture, and search for the application.

I then inputted the fields necessary to activate the Extended Info application. You’ll need to input the video url, a header text and a description into the fields in the editor. Be sure not to enter anything in the Link URL field. I did this and it turned the entire description into a link–not good. :)

Then you’ll want to click Save Changes. Also, make sure your application settings are set to add the application onto a tab. Then click the “+” along side your tabs and click on Extended Info to add it to your tabs.

Then you probably know that you’ll want to set your default landing tab to the Extended Info tab (this is on your Wall Settings).

Please let me know how you do.”

If you have a fan page or are thinking about creating one, please stay tuned to my article that will give you tips and tricks to make the process easier.
