The Importance of a Facebook Landing Page

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.

  1. After fiddling with code and such, I finally settled with PageModo, easy to add and edit via FB. I revised it when the site set to 2.0 and I think it looks even more awesome.

  2. Oh, yay! I love options! And I love your username “HerArtSheLoves”. It makes me think of that Fairly Odd Parents episode when the alien came down to Earth and fell in love with Vicky. “Do you not see why I love her?” Then he said, “This love! It burns!” It was just the way he said it. It was hilarious. Anyway, yeah, I love options, lol.

  3. Am I missing something? How do you create a FB landing page? I would love to learn more…

  4. I agree. I thought this article was going to be about how to create a FB Landing Page – something I have never heard of. It would have been nice to see a link on how to set one up.

  5. Yes, I’d like to know how to create a landing page too. Especially since I’ve tried it several times and have never yet gotten it to stick.

    Instructions please!

  6. It’s the link in blue that says Blogging with Amy’s full article.

  7. On my To Do List next week is creating a landing/welcome page for my FB page. I keep getting that advice from others, so this article is very timely. I’m also happy to hear another vote for a blog site other than Blogger; thanks!

  8. i’m off to see how to do this too. first, blowing you a kiss, from another homeschooling mama. x
