Facebook Business Page Tip Number 4

I’ve a few tips lurking in the back of my head at the moment they are for more established Facebook Business Page, but if you need any help establishing yours I’m sure I know someone who can help 😉

Tip #4 is all about how you manage your page and what applications you have on it.  Go into your fanpage now and click on the tabs …. You will only be able to have about 6 tabs so choose them wisely people are  unlikely to click on the arrow to see other tabs.  Firstly is it beneficial to have a ‘photos’ tab when your photo albums are displayed down the left hand side?

Do you have a discussion tab or reviews tab – are they empty?? You’ll find the majority of Fanpages are. Think seriously about whether you need them or not.  If you think they are useful .. fill them in .. start a discussion, ask for reviews.  If you think they are irrelevant ditch them get some new tabs!

New tabs … so what tabs do I suggest.
There are many free applications.

  • Payvment – why not add a free shop. Fans can buy straight from your Fanpage like Rentabuggy has.  It’s easy to add, why not try it for 6 months, no orders then move onto another application.
  • Involver –  enables you to add 2 free applications to your Fanpage. If you check out Charlie Moo’s, you can see I have added a You Tube tab filled with all my videos and ones I like on You Tube and also a Twitter tab.  This tab enables you to start following me and also see my last 5 tweets (you can do more or less).
  • Involver – allows you to also add a pdf tab – this is a great resource for someone who has a product catalogue.  It enables the fan to view the catalogue or download it.  This is a great way to save you capital and also enable more people to see your catalogue.  I like this application a lot.
  • Newsletter Tab –  this is a great idea and since I added one to Charlie Moo’s I’ve noticed an increase in sign ups from those I normally have via my website.  There are a variety of ways to add this tab depending on your newsletter provider.  I personally use Mail Chimp.  ( I will do a post on this for Mail Chimp users)

These are just a few suggestions there are lots more applications and we will come back to this in the future.
So off you pop go check your tabs!

      Monica that’s great!! Went to have a nosey (http://www.facebook.com/myfunnybunny.co.uk) and I noticed on the double arrow you do have 7 tabs on there. Check if you need these or which ones need to be more prevalent as you can only really fit 6 tabs on the top and some people may not look at your double arrows. One of the 7 is videos so you could go into the back office and delete that application as you have added you tube.

      Hope that helps its looking good!
