How to Add a Custom Welcome Page to Facebook

If you have a Facebook Business Page, you can add a custom Welcome Page that will display when someone first loads up your page. Normally, a visitor would see your wall with the most recent posts from you or your friends. You may prefer to have visitors see a custom Welcome Page where you can highlight who you are, big announcements, special offers, etc.

To add a custom Welcome Page to Facebook, you need to install the Static HTML: iframe tabs app. You can search Facebook for iframe, or simply click this link.

Once you are at the app’s page, click the Go to App button at the top.

Select your Facebook Business Page from the drop-down, then click the Add Static HTML: iframe tabs button.


Now you will notice a Welcome tab on the left of your Facebook Page. If you click on it, you can insert your HTML code for your Welcome page.


What is HTML?

HTML is the basic programming language of websites. You have probably dealt with HTML, even if you don’t realize it. If you have ever embeded a video from YouTube, you have probably used the <embed> tag. Luckily, you really don’t need to know much to make a simple Facebook Welcome Page.

Let’s say you have an image you used in a marketing piece or on your website that would be great for your welcome page. All you need is the URL of the image to get started.

The code to display an image in HTML is <img src=”Your Image URL”>

If you want to link that image to your website, you would use something like this:
<a href=”Your website URL”><img src=”Your Image URL”></a>

Note: Make sure your URLs start with http://

Once you are ready, put the HTML code for your Welcome Page as shown below.


How to make your Welcome Page show by default

Your welcome page is done, but when visitors go to your Facebook page they still see your wall. To change what page appears by default, click on the Edit Page button at the top.

Now you should see a drop-down next to Default Landing Tab. Change that from Wall to Welcome.


That’s it! Just remember to keep your Facebook Welcome Page up-to-date!

    Thanks for the information. I was able to add the welcome tab in just a couple of minutes. Can I just insert my web site address http://www.awiseinspector.com and let my website be my welcome page, or would you recommend something else?

    Absolutely, I would point it straight to your website.
