One of the most popular blog posts I've ever written was THE Blogger's Guide to Facebook. It has been viewed over 20,000 times and the videos within that post have accumulated over 120,000 views.
Unfortunately, those videos are now outdated. Facebook, as many of you know, loves to update and change things around—so my walkthroughs for creating a Facebook page and creating a Facebook landing page are a bit off.
Several people have requested that I reshoot these videos and publish updated versions.
I just finished, and here they are!
Below, you'll find updated videos on how to create a Facebook Page, as well as how to create a Facebook Landing Page.
If you have yet to utilize Facebook for your blog or business, you're falling way behind. There are now over 500 million users active on Facebook and every month people spend a total of over 700 billion minutes on it (see Facebook Statistics).
For me and my own businesses, Facebook has become one of my top traffic sources (2nd only Google), and it has helped me connect with my audience in a way that no other platform has. On my Facebook Page (now 5,060 fans strong) sometimes I can ask for an opinion or pose a question and within minutes I'll have 10 to 20 responses, and within a day I'll have up to 50 or 100. In the past, companies would pay top dollar for an honest response from an audience like that, which is exactly why today you'll see that most companies, big and small, are setup with their own Facebook pages too.
If you haven't already set one up, now you can—for free!
If you do already have a page, I still recommend that you watch through these videos because I've added a few tips and tricks that will maximize your Facebook efforts, and you may end up changing a thing or two (see the image at the very top for a preview).
At the bottom of this post, you'll also see some downloadables. These are the PSD files that go along with the videos, and the code for your landing page as well.
Enjoy the videos!
Part 1: How to Create a Facebook Page (UPDATED!)
Part 2: How to Create a Facebook Landing Page (UPDATED!)
If you have a landing page for your Facebook page, even if you've already set one up before this post was published, I would love for you to leave a link to it here in the comment section of the blog. This way, we can all get inspired by everyone else's landing pages and possibly earn the interest of some new fans for your page as well. No advertisements or descriptions necessary please, just a link and any comments about this post or how Facebook has helped your business grow.
Thank you! Cheers!
(Editor's note: As of 2021, we’ve chosen to move our student course communities off of Facebook. As we strengthen our commitment to fostering strong community for the SPI audience, we believe that Circle is a better community platform for us. We launched our private membership, SPI Pro, on Circle in July 2020. We’ve had such a great experience that we decided to use Circle to host SPI Academy, a shared space for all of our course communities.)
