One of the additional options for landing page publication is publishing it as a Facebook Tab on your fanpage using Facebook Page Apps. Additional bookmarks will appear on the menu on the fanpage:

Landing page as a Facebook tab can be used as a subscription to the newsletter. In this case, a simple landing page with the minimum amount of elements will work best.

What should I know about the Facebook tabs?

  • You cannot target campaigns (e.g., using Google Ads) to the fanpage tab.
  • The tab is visible only on the desktop view.

What do I need to place the landing page as a Facebook page?

  • Your fanpage must have a certain number of fans (> 2000), set by Facebook rules.
  • The domain of your landing page must have installed an SSL certificate.
