A Facebook welcome page is the first page viewed by visitors to a fanpage. Having a good welcome page is one of the best methods for receiving Facebook likes.
Imagine a welcome page as the cover of a book, or the homepage of a website. The cover of a book often displays a visual summary, along with a title, of what the book is about. The best book covers invoke curiosity, and invite us to open up the pages. A welcome page for Facebook should be no different.
What are the features of an optimally presented Facebook artist welcome page?
- Large images
The artworks should be relatively large, and not small thumbnail images. They should be the main focus on the page, and should visually “wow” the viewer into wanting to see more.
- Choose the best artworks
Art chosen should be the most successful and inviting pieces of the artist.
- A good title
The title should be descriptive of the art displayed.
- A brief bio
A very short artist statement or bio is often displayed at artist Facebook welcome pages. This should only be a brief summary of the artwork, and influence readers into wanting to learn more about the art.
