Just created my Facebook page
Hey everyone,

I just created my FaceBook page. I would love for you guys to stop by and fan/like/friend it and give me any pointers/tips that you can. It is still a work in progress but I am just excited to finally have it up. I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks ya'll!

Hi Lacie,
This is a great start. I do see you added the FBML application but I recommend you go in and change the title from FBML, to something else...something like "How We Can Help" or if it's going to be it's own tab, then the title will also be the name of the tab, so you could use it as your landing tab and title it "Welcome".

Also, I like the image you are using, which has a call to action to click it to find out more, but it's not clickable. There is no link attached to the image. Again, this is something you can do when editing the FBML box.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Sylvia. I noticed that you were on there. I appreciate it!

Kimberly, how would I be able to change the name of the tab and hook up the link. Do you happen to know? I tried to change the tab but it was not cooperating with me.

Lacie,
Go to Edit Settings on your Fan Page. Look for the FBML app, click "Edit" underneath the app name, then when the FBML edit window comes up, where it says "Box Title" put in the title you want to use.

Hi Lacie,

I became a fan! Thank you for posting this, because you prompted me to set-up my own page... and I have just had my first weekly statistics from Facebook - 308 views! (My hubby suspects it was all me... but I don't have that much time to admire my own page )

Donna, that's great. I will go make myself number "309".
I do see the potential for great marketing with businesses with Facebook. I noticed a lot of small businesses around where I am at use Facebook to connect with clients so I am going to try connecting with the small businesses.

Hi Donna,

I just added my name to your "like" list and would love for you to visit my page.

http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/...6936296?v=wall

How wonderful it would be to visit France and stay in one of the cottages you refer to . . .dream on . . .

Good business page and your website designs look great!

Keep up the great marketing efforts ladies!

Donna, me too. I am definitely "liking" this. haha

I am hoping that all the updates are keeping people looking at my page. I haven't had any comments and I am now trying to figure out how to go about getting small businesses hooked up.

Hi Amy - your link has not appeared properly - do you want to paste it again?

Hi Stephanie - there is a great thread on this site about creating a Facebook fan page (as opposed to your personal one) - and on that page, you can promote your business - it's another great way to network. When you've done it, visit the page, then cut and paste the URL (the bit at the top of the screen beginning http://) into your message. The URL is simply the unique address for your page.

To view the pages in this message - log in facebook, and then click on the link (or cut and paste it into your browser).

Bon chance!

Donna

Hi Amy - got it this time! :-) What is the magic number of "Likes" before you can have your own address?! And how do I go about it... I have 60 something I think? Donna

Yes, Lacie is right, you only need 25 "Likes" to claim your unique URL by going to http://facebook.com/username

Also, if you don't have a unique URL yet, here is a good way to get the URL for your page:
Go to your page,
Click Refresh for your Browser,
This is the link you need. It should look something like this:
"http://facebook.com/pages/yourpagetitle/1234556676" or it might look like this:
"http://facebook.com/pages/yourlocation/yourpagetitle/12324698079"

It should not have the word "profile" or "ref" or "referral" in it.
