Facebook Fanpage Tips and Tricks For More Traffic and Syndication

Click the expand option (lower right) to view full screen. 

Facebook Tip #1 – Link Your Profile To Your Fanpage

As seen in the screenshot below, many people will either add their company name or a random word like “Entrepreneur” here that will link over to a miscellaneous community page in no relation to them or what they’re marketing.  I’ve even seen some people list their company name here and without them knowing, it links to another fan page created by another distributer… whoops!

Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen to you.


Step 1.) You must have a facebook fan page. I have a video tutorial on how to create facebook fan pages here, or you can simply follow this link to create a facebook fan page of your own.

Step 2.) Go to your profile and click “Edit Profile”

Step 3.) Click the “Education and Work” tab on the left hand side. If you are currently linking to a page that is not your own, simply delete the existing content.


Step 4.) Click “New Project” and Type in the name of your fanpage. You’ll also want to add details and other links such as your capture page or blog. Change the title of your position to self-employed or CEO. Many just leave it as “Works At…”


NOTE: If your fanpage doesn’t show up it is possible that it is too new, or facebook hasn’t indexed it yet. Here’s a tutorial that should help you get discovered.

Facebook Tip #2 – Importing Your Blog To Facebook

In this quick tutorial we’ll cover the notes app on your facebook fan page. Not only will this enable you to import your blog into facebook, but if you decide to, you can use “Notes” on your fanpage AS your blog. In other words, you’ll be able to write articles or post content there rather than installing a wordpress blog if you choose to do so.

Step 1.) Go to your Facebook fanpage and click the “edit page” button in the top right hand corner, then select “apps” from the menu list on the left.

You will then see a list of apps available for your page and you should see “Notes” as below:


Step 2.) Simply click the “add” button to add the application to your page and you will now see it in the dropdown menu on the left hand bar when you go back to your page.

Step 3.) Import Your Blog by adding your RSS feed. Simply click “Edit Import Settings”



NOTE: If you do not have a blog you can simply skip step 3 and start to write your first note.

  • Notes are Search Engine Optimized on facebook so be sure to include your targeted keywords in your “Note” or in other words, your article.
  • Include a link back to your blog or facebook fanpage in the note.

Now, go and find targeted groups in your niche and ask to join. Start contributing to the “conversation” and drive some traffic back to your sites.

Important: Facebook is a social networking site. So, get involved and comment on other peoples posts before posting your own links.

With that being said, what are your thoughts on facebook notes and your profile link? Leave your comment below and let us know how you’ll be using these features.

How To Create A Capture Page Using Facebook Pages and iFrame

Facebook | Creating a Capture Page Made Simple

Social media has been the talk of the industry for quite some time now. As Facebook and Google battle for top positioning as the world leader in traffic, it would only makes sense to have a presence on both… right? To make things even better, Facebook makes it super easy to get your own custom “page” online, to promote your business, or offer. Until recently  Facebook used an application called FBML, which was at the time Facebooks own twist on HTML. Yeah, it got a little confusing for me to. Well, I am happy to say, there is now a simpler alternative that allows you to get your own autoresponder opt in form, or capture page put together on Facebook… literally, within minutes.

facebook-UpdateAs of March 30th 2012, Facebook’s “Timeline” was launched and the way we create business pages has once again changed. Get the newest and most up to date facebook video here: Facebook Timeline – Creating Capture Pages And Interactive Sites. The video below will help you with iframe and get a better understanding of that application. However, the newer “Timeline” video goes into great detail as to how to put it all together.

How To Create A Facebook Capture Page Using iFrame 

Click the expand option (lower right) to watch full screen


  • To get started, be sure that you are logged into facebook and go to http://www.facebook.com/pages/create
  • Select the appropriate box, i.e. “Public Figure” and fill out the short form.
  • Upload an image. Recommend width – 195 pixels, depth can be as long as you would like. However, I have seen nicer pages keep it right around 500 pixels. If you want to get real fancy, here is a Free photoshop alternative to help you edit your pictures – Photo Filtre
  • Next, do a search for “Static HTML: iFrame Tabs“, select “go to app” and select the page in which you would like to install the app to.
  • Go back to your page and click on the “welcome” tab that the iFrame app created to edit.
  • Input your text or images and add your Aweber / autoresponder code.
  • If you are hoping to create the blur effect, I use a tool called “Snagit”. I Believe there is a free trial version to this as well. Simply take a screenshot of your page and upload it to your host… or to photobucket.com (example) if you don’t have your own hosting account. When you get the address to where your image is located simply use this code – <img src=”Your-Image-URL-Here”/>. Paste that into the Non-Fan section.
  • Click “Edit Page” to fill in your basic info and select where you would like your prospects / readers to land when they arrive at your page under “manage permissions”. Your done!
  • If you are not the tech type, but still want a fancy, well designed fan page online, this is the best and cheapest solution I found – Double Your Likes

facebook - like jonmrozOnce you get 30 “Likes” to your page you can also go to http://www.facebook.com/username to customize your facebook url.

A finished page could look something like this – JonMroz.com/FB

iFrame really does make it simple to create your own capture page and build a presence on facebook. Just be sure to add value to your pages and use social media for what it is … connecting with others, and creating relationships. The last thing you want to do is spam everyone with your opportunity and upset your network : )

Facebook Pages

Facebook Pages | iFrame

Facebook is now a primary tool for marketing leaders worldwide. As google bans tens of thousands of adwords accounts, literally stripping legitimate advertisers incomes from them over night, facebook is stepping up to the plate. With rumors of facebook releasing their own search engine in the near future, “The Big G” may have finally met their match. Now is the time to get ahead of the game and learn the fundamentals of using this powerful marketing resource properly.

UPDATE: The info below still works and will teach you a good amount on facebook pages yet a simpler way to create pages in Facebook has been developed using iFrame. I recommend watching the video tutorial below to pick up info on coding and design and also the NEW tutorial on the following page to simplify the process:

Facebook Pages Using iFrame


Presenting – Facebook Pages

A Step By Step Tutorial On How To Properly Set Up A Facebook Page:

Click the expand option (lower right corner) to watch full screen


Step 1 – Create an account – facebook.com

Step 2 – Search for “pages” and “create page”

Step 3 – Update your profile

Step 4 – add “static fbml” to your page


Use photoshop to create and adjust your image. If you don’t have photoshop, here is a similar FREE version – Photo Filtre.

I found that a good size for your image should be 509 pixels wide. The height depends on your headline or ad size. Below is an example of a headline image, that I have used on a facebook page:


Once you have created your headine (image), upload it to your wordpress blog. (Media > Add New)

For complete details on how to install a wordpress blog be sure to take my 10 Day Online Business Transformation Bootcamp by opting in at the upper right hand corner of this page.

Not ready for a wordpress blog? You can simply upload your image to Photo Bucket and get the image URL from there.

Use this code when placing your image code into your facebook page:

<img src=”IMAGE URL”>


<img src=http://jonmroz.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/Jon-Mroz-10-Day1.jpg>

If you would like to have an image on your facebook page linked to a website or different page, you can also do this by using the code below:

<a href=”URL” target=”_blank”>
<img src=”IMAGE URL” width=”IMAGE WIDTH IN PIXES” height=”IMAGE HEIGHT IN PIXES” border=”0″ alt=”IMAGE DESCRIPTION” />


<a href=”http://jonmroz.com/fb/” target=”_blank”>
<img src=”http://jonmroz.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/Get_Instant_Access_Button.png” width=”235″ height=”61″ border=”0″ alt=”Access My Fan Page FREE!” />

And that would look like this:

Access My Fan Page Free!

Note: To shorten your url’s using your wordpress blog, you can install a plugin called “pretty Link”

That will turn this url: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jon-Mroz/154298704590247?v=app_4949752878&ref=ts

Into this url: http://jonmroz.com/fb

Once you have completed the editing of your code place it in the appropriate area of your facebook page as seen in the video above.


Use photoshop to create and adjust an image that people will see before they play your video (presentation is everything : ). If you don’t have photoshop, here is a similar FREE version – Photo Filtre.

I found that a good size for your video image should be 450 pixels wide by 272 pixels high.

Below is an example of a video image that I used on a facebook page:

Once you have created your video image upload it to your wordpress blog (10 Day Bootcamp) by going to Media > Add New. Get the image url and make a note of it by posting it into a text document (Microsoft word / google docs / notepad) to use in the next step.

Next, upload your video to youtube.com or grab a video from youtube.com that you would like to use. To do this, simply go to youtube.com, find the video of your choosing and click on “share”. Get the video url and use the code below:


Image URL: http://jonmroz.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/jon-mroz-play-video.jpg
Youtube Url: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bj2q-CTwl54

Note: Remove watch? from the youtube url.

Your Final Code Should Look Like this:

facebook html

Note: Add the green code above to your url’s

Once you have completed the editing of your code place it in the appropriate area of your facebook page as seen in the video above.


Having an autoresponder is essential.It is the definition of automating your business and it is literally responsible for 70% of my income.

The 2 Standards in the industry are:

Aweber and Get Response.

Personally, I use Aweber for it’s tracking capabilities, deliverable rate, and ease of use, but that’s not to say that Get Response is a huge contender. If you haven’t made up your mind on which autoresponder to use, here’s a great unbiased review.

  1. Log into your autoresponder
  2. Update list settings
  3. Create a follow up campaign or get it from your upline
  4. Create a web form
  5. Install html code to facebook page

See the video above for autoresponder implementation.

Once you have completed your autoresponder code, place it in the appropriate area of your facebook page as seen in the video above.
