Are you looking for an easy way to create attractive pages on Facebook? Are you wondering how businesses are creating Welcome tabs?
In this article I’ll reveal a number of applications that make it very easy to add functionality to your Facebook page.

Custom Tabs: What You Need to Know

You may have seen some Welcome pages on Facebook that encourage new visitors to Like the page. You may even be given an incentive such as a free report or, in Tim Ferriss’ case, a free chapter of his book. This is sometimes referred to as fan-gating, meaning only fans see special content.
A brand may also be using a Facebook custom tab in many different ways, as Social Media Examiner covered in the post 8 Powerful Ways to Use Facebook Landing Tabs.
But how do you create these custom tabs? You can create a custom tab on your Facebook page with an iFrame application.
First, what are iFrames? iFrame stands for Inline Frame and is basically an HTML document embedded inside another HTML document on a website. An iFrame pulls the content from one website into another. So in the context of Facebook, an iFrame pulls the content of another website into an area on your Facebook page.
iFrames are very powerful because anything you can create on a website, you can bring into your Facebook page, providing a unique and rich experience for your community.
