Facebook is an ever evolving social media player on the internet and in a bid to keep a hold of it’s market share has now released what is being labelled the greatest thing since sliced bread by some internet marketers out there.
So what is it and why is it creating such a buzz. Well put simply, you will now be able to ad a call to action button to your posts/status updates on Facebook and you will have a choice of a few.
What are Facebook Call-to-Action Buttons?
The appropriately named call-to-action buttons allow you to add the following CTA buttons to your ads,
- Shop Now
- Learn More
- Sign Up
- Book Now
Now as far as I am aware at publishing this post 13/02/2014 these Call to action buttons on posts are only available in the US but over the coming months should become available globally, but in saying this who can ever be sure of exactly what Facebook does from day to day .
So why is this exciting and why as a marketer should you be excited read more
So you want to add more tabs
Okay so after my last tutorial I received a lot of feedback about adding tabs to your Facebook fan-pages. So I thought I would take a minute to address the major concern that was troubling most Facebook users.
Now adding a tab was simple enough and everyone was successful installing a tab on their Facebook fan-page, then came the excitement of wow I can really utilize these Facebook fan-page tabs to bring valuable content to my fans and engage them even more if I install some more tabs. 🙂
Yes and rightly so you can put a lot of useful info in your Facebook fan-page tabs so it is right there for all your fans to find, and this is where most had an issue. When they went to install another tab using their static html they where confused and unable to find their page in the menu. This is fine because when I first went into this marketing technique on Facebook with my first page I was almost bamboozled…. 🙂
However I was not going to let that stop me so I researched and played around with these static html apps and my tabs until I was able to get it right. This is one of the biggest reasons I have decided to do these very basic step by step walk through tutorials on adding tabs to your Facebook fan-pages. I didn’t want others to get bogged down, frustrated and throw their hands up in despair and quit. So I am putting my knowledge in easy step by step tutorial videos in the hopes of saving you the time consuming, exasperation that I went through.
So here is the follow up tutorial to answer the question??? I have one tab on my Facebook fan-page,!! How do I add another one??
I truly hope this one helps clear up the issue and helps those who need it
