How to get a custom welcome page for Facebook
Getting a custom welcome landing page (aka welcome tab) to invite someone to Like a Facebook Page has become a popular tactic for businesses and organizations to build its audience. While there is Facebook Developer documentation online that has a Page Tab tutorial, I don’t find it plain and simple to use. Here are template-driven web apps for generating a custom welcome page (and asterisked ones have additional apps that integrate into Facebook page tabs):
- www.faceitpages.com * [ed.note: this app calls it a “fan gate”]
- apps.tradablebits.com *
- www.socialappshq.com *
- Static HTML: iframe tabs
- other apps listed in socialmediaexaminer.com, another list

Of course, growing audience engagement takes more than a welcome page, but sometimes non-techie decision-makers aren’t aware of the total cost of effort to keep fresh content flowing consistently. (cf. When A Welcome Tab Isn’t Enough: Use Custom Facebook Tabs To Give Fans More)
