Building Facebook Fan Pages

Building a “Welcome” Facebook Marketing Page

Small Business Tools – Facebook is selective on who can create non-traditional Facebook tabs on their Fan Pages. Portside Marketing offers a “Welcome” tab featuring a fully-designed, fully-functioning mini-website with videos, photos, and links, added to ANY website.

Flower Mound, Texas – Jan 26, 2012 – Introduction:

Portside Marketing started developing Facebook business pages (Fan Pages) in 2010. For most businesses, creating an effective Facebook marketing campaign is limited to their wall and information page, due to constraints in place by Facebook. Facebook requires application developers to be registered and use a secure server to host content in order to create “custom applications” in Facebook, which includes Fan Page walls and other features. It soon became clear that the limited tools that are available to the average business, coupled with the technical knowledge required, limited the small business from playing with the “big guys” in this market. That is about to change. Portside Marketing has created a streamlined, cost effective solution to creating Welcome Fan Pages and other interactive content on Facebook for the small business owner.

The “Info” tab offers contact information listed in boring plain text. Plus, any important, and interesting, information and graphics placed on the “Wall” keeps moving down the page into oblivion as new posts are attached. Portside Marketing’s new “Welcome” tab mini-website solves that problem effectively and elegantly.


The “Welcome” tab mini-website (example: Click here to see example) allows businesses to have their website design replicated and loaded directly into Facebook.

Professional business, spend thousands of dollars to design, develop and maintain their websites. In return, tens of thousands of dollars a year are brought in by the websites as they attract new business. Portside Marketing’s “Welcome” tab mini-website allows a business to re-introduce that commercial edge that is currently missing from Facebook. Rather than being hampered by Facebook’s graphic layout, information is presented in the graphic manner determined by the business to be the most effective at bringing in new customers.

Portside Marketing is offering to design and develop “Welcome” tab mini-websites at an inexpensive, one-time $500 design and development fee. Portside Marketing’s Co-founder, Lisa Parziale, explains that, “While it takes considerable creativity and design time to create a business website from scratch, replicating an existing website can be done in just a couple of days.”
