Since Facebook no longer provides a default landing tab option for Facebook pages, the best way to send people to your Facebook page is by sending them directly to one of your Facebook Page Tabs. And preferably a like-gated tab so that you can grow your fan-base 😉
With Landable it’s easy to create a trackable link to share your Facebook Page Tab. In this post we’ll show you how it’s done!
Once you’ve designed your page, just click the green Share button for the page tab you want to share.
Share Page Screen
This will open the Share Page window which will allow you to generate a Short URL and QR Code to use for sharing. The link created here is also a Smart URL meaning it will detect the type of device your visitor is on, and will show them a different design based on the mobile option you select.
There are 3 options available for Facebook Page Tabs:
- Mobile Friendly – Will render a “mini-page” version of your page tab design. It displays your page tab without the Facebook interface, just a mobile friendly header that we include. This is the option we recommend using in most cases.
- Redirect to Mobile Landing – This will send mobile and tablet visitors to a mobile landing page design you specify. You’ll have to create a mobile landing page design first in order to use it here.
- Show Full Site – This will send mobile and tablet visitors directly to your landing page. For Facebook pages, this sends mobile visitors to the Desktop version of Facebook (bypassing the Facebook mobile site). So your page still works on mobile and visitors will see the full version of your page, but may need to zoom and scroll to navigate.
One important note… If you want links and stats tracked under your own bit.ly account, just enter in your bit.ly info under Account->Integrations. You can always add this info later and re-generate the short URL.
