How to make your Welcome page the default landing page for new visitors

When new visitors go to your Facebook Business page for the first time, they automatically go to your 'Wall'. If you've spent time and money on designing a great Welcome Page graphic, then you'll most likely be wanting 'first time' visitors to go there so they can learn about your business and what you have to offer. Here's how...

  1. On your Facebook business page you’ll see a small link on the right below the tabs that says ‘Options’. Click this.
  2. On the next page click ‘settings’.
  3. On the second option that says “default landing Tab for everyone else’ select ‘Welcome’ from the drop-down menu.

Now, whenever anyone who hasn’t already ‘liked’ your page goes there, they’ll go to your welcome page first! Once someone has ‘liked’ your page, they’ll automatically go to your 'wall' each time they visit your page.

I know some of this sounds complicated and difficult and you can waste hours trying to figure stuff out, but lately I’ve discovered if you want to know how to do something, go to YouTube and search for it. And that’s not only for computer stuff. A couple of weeks ago I needed to change the filters in my water filter system, but I couldn’t find the instructions and couldn’t remember how I did it last year, so I ‘youtubed’ it, and there was a nifty little video of a guy crouched down under the kitchen sink, showing me, step by step, how to do it. So cool!
