As an affiliate marketer, Facebook can be your best friend. It is a great way to meet potential customers, nurture a relationship, build your list and ultimately sell products. While you are sure to have a Facebook page up and running, are you getting the most out of your Fanpage? With a few simple steps, you can have a Fanpage that draws in customers and increases your customer base.
Make the Most of Your Profile Pic
When creating your Facebook Fanpage, what type of image did you use? One of the most common mistakes when creating your Facebook is made when you first create your page. Most people think that a profile image is limited to a 200X200 pixel image. However, with the recent changes, the sizes of profile images also changed. While you still have a 200 pixel width restriction, the height limit was raised to 600 pixels. This gives you more room to promote your products or business. Use this additional space to give your readers more information on your business.
Create a Striking Welcome Page
First impressions are everything. The same is true with your Fanpage. When someone visits your page, you want to put your best foot forward and entice them to follow you. Accomplishing this is easy when you create a Welcome Page. You can even create a page for new visitors and a separate page for followers.
Welcome pages for new customers should draw them in with information about your business and products. Give them a sample of the services that you offer. Use every trick in the book to get them to like your page. Pages for existing followers can be used to promote specials, new products and services. This way, everyone that visits your page will get new information helping you increase sales.
Creating a Welcome page is as simple as installing an app. You do not have to have html or web design knowledge. In fact, most Welcome Page apps do not even require a designed page. The most popular apps for Welcome Tab creations are:
- Fanpage Engine
- FaceIt Pages
Each of these programs lets you choose a layout, images and wording to create a personalized Welcome Page. The cost of running these apps range from $5-$15 per month, however, Pagemodo allows you to run one welcome page free. It is good to note however that with a paid subscription, you have access to more templates and can several Welcome pages on your Fanpage.
Use Apps to Your Advantage
Facebook Apps are your best friend, at least they should be. There are apps for creating events, sharing YouTube Videos, creating promotions and everything in between. You have access to thousands of apps to make the most of your Fanpage and you should be using them. Some of the most popular apps include:
- Networked Blogs
- Promotes your blog on Facebook and incorporates blog posts on your Facebook wall and Fanpage.
- RSS Grafitti
- Centralizes your posts. With this app, you can sync your Facebook, YouTube and Twitter pages and post to all social networking sites with one click.
- Slide Share
- Shares presentations, photographs, portfolios and videos. This app lets you create presentations, slideshows, and webinars and publishes them to your Facebook Fanpage.
- Twitter App
- Syncs your Facebook and Twitter pages.
- Create free Facebook Pages
- Facebook Video
- Supports higher quality video than most video sharing sites.
Creating a Facebook Fanpage is the perfect free advertisement for your business. It does however, take time to gain friends and create a relationship with users. Simply creating a Fanpage is not enough. Make sure your page is optimized to gain the most visitors. Remember, every fan to your Facebook page is a potential customer. Get the most customers you can with these simple tips.

Good to know! Thank you Anthony
Your advice is very helpful because I’m starting out on a very small budget. Thanks so much.
I try to read everything you put out for us. Thank you.
You have more idea and information that one can implement. Is a whirlwind of work to be done. Thanks for the information
This was good information on how to build a fan page. I still need more understanding like when I go onto face-book what do I click on next to start my fan page? I need step by step to help me succeed. I have the picture in my mind what is needed to persuade people to site and to promote traffic, but I need to create the image to get the message across.
Anthony I’m launching this new website and it’s going to be awsome. I personally would like to think you for all you’ve done for me. I also have a cool suggestion for you. Sense your popularity is sky rocketing each day why don’t you come up with something called student of the month where your most knowlegable or successful follower gets recognition. All you would have to do is tag your respective students site or business each day for a week and that would bring them traffic towards facebook and twitter.
Keep helping me to make it big, Anthony; I’ll try it; my granddaughter teaches me how to use fb. np

Thank you Anthony. For everything you have done and all the information you have given us all for free .
I have kept all the emails you have sent for the past year while dealing with the foreclosure of my home, waiting until I am past this crisis and settled in a place close to my sons in San Jose, CA to begin my Internet marketing.
Well I decided I could not wait anymore so I am starting a WordPress free site and all of the above posts have everything I need to know step by step.
Thank you again. I could not do it without you!
I have to get with it. Thanks for the push.
I am rereading old emails I have saved in my email folders and came across this one. I had been thinking about starting a fan page, but was unsure how to start and a little intimidated at doing it. Thanks for this no nonsense article! I now have the knowledge I need to go ahead and start.
I appreciate so much all the help you give us to succeed. Thanks a bunch!
