As promised, I am starting a blog series.
A weekly tip/ tutorial on using Facebook for marketing.
With this being the first in the series, there will be improvements as we move along.
Lesson 1: Setting up a page.
A Facebook fanpage is a very important marketing tool for brands.
Before you can begin implementing this amazing tool, first you have to own one!
(If you already have one, I will have other advice for you after the tutorial)
1. At the very bottom of the Facebook homepage, click “create a page”
this is the screen you will be directed to:
I took several days off from blogging for several reason… I know, I’m horrible.
My Mother was in town for an unexpected visit and I really enjoyed my time with her.
Also, I wanted to get caught up on my Mommy Blog (Beautiful Imperfection) with my weight loss journey.
I have a few HUGE projects coming up, so I wanted to take a step back and get my thoughts all together.
This will really benefit you amazing people out there who have put up with all my randomness!
Also- SITS’ 31 Days to Build a Better Blog started this week, so That is also pretty exciting!
I have a new plan in order!
It has been requested that I write a post on how to enable the Timeline now.
So here goes!
In order to do this, you have to be registered with Facebook as a developer.
Here’s how to do that!
2011 was never dull.
I had joy and disappointment.
There were so many happy moments and at the same time, it was a rough year.
NighLon said hello in 2011, and at just three months old, growing by leaps and bounds.
Remembering this, I am so ready for 2012 and all the things it will bring.
I sat down and came up with some goals for NighLon in 2012.
I have written before about how much I love Facebook, yet I hate it all at the same time.
There is another installment of this: The Facebook Timeline
I got my timeline several months ago as a special release to developers only.
I love the idea of it.
However, If you play games, its not so great when it starts.
The reason for this is when others go to your wall, its hard to fine all of the game posts.
Its wonderful for just pictures, status updates, and the new addition of LIFE EVENTS.
I LOVE this new addition.
I went through and added all of my biggest life events; like my wedding, when my son was born, and when I started NighLon!
I discovered something today.
It may just be the best thing since Twitter!
I had heard of triberr.com before, but really hadn’t given it much thought.
(enter the gets distracted by shiny things side of me)
Earlier today, I was playing on Klout, and ended up on triberr.com.
I have no idea how I got there, just that a lot of clicks were involved!
I start looking into it, and I am totally dumbfounded. It seems absolutely amazing.
Basically, it is a community where bloggers support and encourage eachother.
Triberr in their own words:
“Triberr is a blogging community that solves the number one problem that bloggers have. We do that by allowing small and medium size bloggers to come together and let them tap into each other’s audiences automagically.”
Why didn’t I think of this?
OH yeah, I’m distracted by shiny things.
Anyway. I try to sign up and guess what….
I have to have an invite code!
So to sum up this post:
If anyone has an invite for me, please feel free to share!
Here is a Christmas frame for you!
Just right click and save. If you enjoy or need help inserting the pictures, feel free to leave a comment.
I have skipped the blog of the day for a few days because I have something special lined up!
Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
Behold the email I received today!
I enjoy playing around with Wix to create webpages.
However, I have discovered that for my own personal style, WIX is best for splash pages ; versus full blown websites.
I wanted to make an amazing landing page for my Facebook fan page, but honestly thought that I would have to do some serious coding to accomplish this. Then, like magic, this email appeared in my inbox!
Just go to WIX
Sign up for a free account
Choose a Facebook template
Edit to your liking
Save (choose name)
Then, WIX will walk you through setting your site as your landing page in Facebook
It’s really pretty simple!
I still want to play around with it and tweak a bit, but this is a start.
There are so many things you can incluede:
Play around with it, and let me know what you come up with.
Do you need tips for social media?
Do you need help with marketing?
Do you love all things TWITTER related?
Do you hate TWITTER?
This is the site for you!

GO MY MINIONS
One of my absolute favorite websites is MASHABLE.
I was surfing today, learning about WordPress, when I landed at Mashable once again.
Naturally, I click the social media tag, and find this article.
what could be better than stumbleupon, love, 2 geeks, and “will you marry me?”
