Design Your Facebook Fan Page With Pagemodo’s WYSIWYG Editor

logo2   Design Your Facebook Fan Page With Pagemodos WYSIWYG EditorIf you want to create an attractive landing tab or a tab to display your company’s products on your Facebook fan page, Pagemodo offers one of the easiest methods to put together an attractive design, without the need for any coding or HTML knowledge whatsoever.

Using the WYSISYG editor, you can add images and text, select your font, background colours and more. While there are drawbacks to using the free version of Pagemodo, it offers a great opportunity for startups or individuals, but for the serious entrepreneur, one of the paid packages will be more appropriate.


If you haven’t already created a Facebook fan page, you can do so here, choosing the category, sub-category and page title.

Once you’ve created your page, the next step takes place at Pagemodo.

Registering for a free account will of course require you to connect Pagemodo to your Facebook account, allowing access to your basic information, send you email, post to your wall and manage your pages.

With a free account, you can create one branded tab, which will feature a Pagemodo footer. There are several customisable templates to choose from, but any templates which include videos require one of the paid packages, starting at $9 per month for three tabs to $59 per month for 15 tabs. Of the paid packages, only the most expensive removes the “Powered by Pagemodo” branding from the top of the page, but with all paid packages, the footer is removed. For a truly professional appearance, the footer and branding may not be the ideal choice for some.

Amongst the templates, there are some, labeled Reveal Content, which require fans to click the like button before being able to view your videos and coupon codes, but this kind of practice could turn away more fans than it gains you.

Once you’ve selected your template, click the customize button, and begin to add content.

The WYSIWYG editor couldn’t be easier to use. Each box is clearly labeled and numbered. You can upload images from your computer, or simply link to images hosted elsewhere.

When entering text, you can also select the background design and colour, and text formatting.

The preview pane makes it easy to see the changes as they are made.

When uploading images, you can scale and rotate them to fit the allotted space.

Once you’ve entered all images and text, you can then save the template for later or, if you’re ready to launch your page straight away, select the Free package, and click the install button.

You will then be redirected to Facebook where you can add the tab to your Facebook fan page.

If you want to make changes to the template at a later date, it’s as simple as going back to the WYSIWYG editor, making your changes, and updating it.

While Pagemodo does offer a very easy method to create a welcome tab, one major drawback, due to Facebook’s settings, is that you cannot rearrange the tabs to place the Welcome tab before your Wall and Info tabs. The best you can do is click and drag the tab into the third slot behind them.

Great little app… I briefly checked it out and started going through the process. One question… can you choose what Facebook page the template applies to? Example: I have a personal Facebook login, but I use that same login while managing my band’s Facebook page. Where do I tell Pagemodo that the design is to be applied to my band’s FB page and not my personal page? (BTW, there is no other login for the fan page – it uses personal logins).

This seems to be a glitch in their service. The first time you create a page you should be given the chance to choose which page you wish to use with Pagemodo’s design. If you have already installed it on the wrong page and wish to change it – you would have to uninstall Pagemodo from Facebook and reinstall the design. Take a look at this http://help.pagemodo.com/pagemodo/topics/want_to_assign_the_welcome_page_to_different_account

Hope that helps.
