How I Have Utilized This On BloggingeHow?


Previously if you would notice, on BloggingeHow's fan page, I had setup a tab that said "1000$ a Month". This was supposed to be the landing page which I setup as Facebook tab.

So each time when a fan clicked that tab, he was taken to a landing page with in Facebook.

Why you need to redirect the fan instead of creating landing page with in Facebook?

1- That won't really matter until you the visitor to better engage with your blog or squeeze page. I realized that our squeeze on the blog would open more opportunities to convert the visitor instead of letting him stay with in Facebook environment.

2- There are tons of distractions on Facebook and the conversions could be fairly less on Facebook instead of a stand alone squeeze page.

How To Redirect Facebook Fan Page Tab To Your Blog In 5 Quick Clicks?


We'll be using a third party tool for this called 'woobox' which is fairly popular for Facebook tabs. Previously I used another third party tool, but after getting my hands on this one, I can't get over how easy it is with woobox to setup a redirection tab or other sort of custom tabs.

These folks have made it just too simple.

Step #1 Go to Woobox.com (don't worry page will open in new tab.)

Step #2 Click 'Get Started for Free' on the top right

Step #3 Click "Create new tab" at top right corner.

Step #4 Click "HTML fan gate" option from drop down.


Step #5 Click "Redirect". Now this is where you'll be adding your landing page URL (in BloggingeHow's case, I added the squeeze page's URL, that is the download page for the eBook "6 Month to a 1000$ Blog.")


There are 3 things we'll setup here:

1- Your Tab Redirect URL towards your blog
2- Tab Name.
3- Tab Thumbnail image (which needs to be 111x74 px)

The more clear the call to action would be in the Thumbnail, the more clicks you'll be getting on your tab and thus the more traffic towards your blog. So invest some time creating a great looking Thumbnail.
