UPDATE! 2012, heh. This post is ancient in Facebook years. At the time of posting, there were no great services for landing pages. Heck, landing pages arent allowed on the front of your profile anymore. But you can STILL create pages to feature your signup forms, contests, coupons, etc. Now, marketers run facebook ads to send visitors to these landing pages. The article below lays out steps to create these apps and pages, but now theres an easier way. You can do all this with Woobox, in way less steps and you no longer need a secure server or separate wordpress install. I have an example ‘fangate’ going on my facebook page.
Ive also updated How to Make a Facebook Fan Page for 2013 With steps to get your page up and running quickly and some GREAT cover examples.

While there are services that will build a facebook landing page for you, you might be a do it yourself kinda person or not have the cash to have a landing page made professionally. This video is for you. I’ll guide you through 11 steps to get it done. Plus I’ve created a stripped down WordPress theme to use for your Facebook Landing Pages and included a text version of the steps. Enjoy!
