There are so many wonderful things that I wish I could take credit for. Take, for instance, a Facebook Landing page. This is yet one more marketing tool for us business owners, bloggers, and self-promoters.
What is a Facebook Landing page?
A Facebook Landing page is a blog or fan page where first-time visitors land first. By default people will land on your Facebook Wall, but it doesn’t really do a good job in letting vistors know what your blog is about.
On a landing page you can put anything you want, such as:
Introduction of who you are or what your blog is about.
An opt in area for newsletter or email list.
A call to action to become a fan.
(Thanks, Jasmine, for that explanation!)
I have recently gotten involved in a different realm of the blogosphere, and even there I am finding great tips that I can apply to benefit my Etsy business. (This other realm is known as Oz to some, but as homemaking/homeschooling to others.) I am learning that there are plenty of Etsians who are stay-at-home/homeschooling moms like myself. Maybe you’re one of us? One such “us” is Jasmine at Far Above Rubies, which is where I found this post, which led me to Blogging With Amy’s full article.
My life has me traveling a new journey at this time, but I am still working my Etsy shop! That’s one thing I love about my business—it can go on the road with me and my family in our motorhome. I can just sew as we go down the road. Talk about multi-tasking! My new Facebook Landing page is a great way to incorporate my personal blog with my shop.
And, just for the record, I use Blogger for my Inside Etsy blog, Weebly for my direct online store, and WordPress for my personal blog, and I gotta say that WordPress is getting my vote hands down! Read this handmadeology.com article about choosing the right blogging platforms.
