How to Connect your Landing Pages to your Facebook Page

Facebook isn’t dead and neither is the Organic Reach on it. But more of that in a later post!

And the good thing is that it is so simple to do – that’s always a bonus right?

How to Set Up Tabs to Redirect to a URL on your Site

Check out what we are looking to do first – we’re going use that sidebar of our Facebook Page and make it work for us. See the example on my Rainy Day Kid page where I link to two of my landing pages on Rainy Day Mum that’s what we are going to set up!

Fantastic isn’t it but you can do a little more. So how do you rearrange those tabs and add more so that you can go to more pages on your site.

Changing the Arrangement of Tabs on your Facebook Page

When you first add the new tab to your Facebook Page it will appear at the bottom of that sidebar but you want people to go there – remember it could be to a Freebie to sign up to get (growing your email list) or it could be to drive traffic around your site (landing pages) or even to your store (MONEY!). But appearing at the bottom is pointless. So lets move it around.

You are amazing!

I had an extra screen, authorizing WooBox, but these directions were all SPOT ON! Months ago, I lost my tabs on one of my business pages and this allowed me to get around it. Thank you so much!
