With Facebook playing more and more of a role in both the private and public sector--and a bigger and bigger role in potential consumers' lives--it's never been important for a business to have a fan page that is strategically designed. And one way to implement this strategic design--to draw the customer in and make it possible for them to find more information on the business with the minimal amount of effort--is through the effective use of custom tabs.
Custom Tab Images
People's attention is usually caught by bright colors and appealing imagery. As a business, it's important to take advantage of custom tab images on Facebook to catch clients and consumers attention. Facebook fan pages are a great way to grow a business and get easily accessibly information to the public. When a customer likes the page of a business, it allows them to be kept up to date on what is happening with the business. The updates also show on each customer's news feed, alerting all their friends that they "like" the business. Essentially a Facebook page directs traffic to the business, so it's important that the page is appealing and relevant for the current and new customers.

For those who don't know how to create a fan page, there are many businesses that specialize in creating fan pages on Facebook for companies. (Click here for one option.)
What's crucial is that the tabs are relevant to both the business and the customer. Tabs should be used for the customer to access the most important information of the business. In this case, the most important information would be seeing floor plans in person and seeing them online. By giving the customer instant information on the company, the customer is put at ease, and--by trusting the company more--is more likely to engage in further interaction.
One example of utilizing tags in a more interactive way is--instead of simply leading the customer to further information on the company--leading the customer to the company's other social media websites.
The Importance of Tabs:
Tabs are important because they support the cover photo and the basic idea of the business with links to further information. The main cover photo can be attractive, but if the customer cannot access any other information about the business, they usually won't make the extra effort to look up the information elsewhere. The goal is to make it as easy as possible for the potential--and current!--customer.
