Your Facebook landing page (also known as your “welcome” page) is the first thing people see when they come to your Fan page. If a person goes to your Fan page and the first thing they see is your wall, they are much less inclined to engage with you or "like" your page than if the go to your landing page first. The reason is that your landing page can tell them exactly what you want them to do. You’re landing page can list an offer that is more enticing because it is bright and colorful, it can point directly to the “like” button requesting that they become a Fan, or it can use video to excite viewers or encourage them to interact with your business.
Thanks to applications like Static HTML, MyTab and iwiPage, it’s easy to create a "reveal tab" welcome page. Check out the fan page for Hungry Microbes to see this in action. Here’s how to set up a Facebook reveal tab welcome page.
