Social Media in South Africa – Part 2

So you have created your nice page with the profile pic on the left.  What next … Well if you recall I spoke about a “landing page“, now there are a number of “apps” on Facebook that you may want to use to create this landing page, here are a few that I like to use :

  • Ability to post static landing page
  • Ability to layover social feed tabs like (Twitter,Linked In,Facebook)™
  • Insert YouTube™ videos
  • Facebook share
  • Build Iframes

With the premium plan you can do a little more like :

  • Add a flash animation
  • Add MP3
  • Contact Form etc.
One of my favourites… so much you can do with this app:

  • Create a fan gate
  • Create a static landing page
  • Create I dynamic landing page by inserting a flash animation
  • Insert a YouTube video’
  • Embed HTML
  • Embed an op-in form
  • CMS System
  • Twitter Feed
All of this you get for FREE.
By paying a little FEE you can brand this tab with your own Icon & Remove the IFRAME WRAPPER branding
 What i like about this is that you can create your own icon & brand it for your company, your product you business. And you can use in a couple of times within your website with different branded icons.Furthermore is the ability to use different functionality.

  • You can have a Fan Gate
  • You can insert your own HTML functionality
  • You can insert an image
  • You can have a re direct to another page.
  • You can have a link to your website or even build a microsite with a IFRAME
  • You can have an opt – in form that visitors need to fill in before they can go further.
  What’s nice about this app is it’s simplicity. It’s essentially has drag & drop functionality.

  • You can insert a ticker strip box
  • A media box which can have HTML functionality, or a flash animation
  • You can insert a YouTube video
  • A slideshow with different transitions

Premium features :

  • Fan page
  • Change the footer
  • Google Analytics to track visits to your page.
  • Customized Icon
  • Load pages within Facebook
  • Increased storage limits for pics etc.

So try them out. Install on of these apps. The best way to see how there operate is to test them out there are literally thousands of apps on facebook, and the the above list is one’s I have personally tested & tried out.

What out for my video coming soon where I will actually show you from scratch how to make your 1st page.

Create a unique LIKE page with Sensible Designs

Have you got a new business, an idea, perhaps a product you would like to sell, but realistically you have no idea as to where you should actually start.

And yes you have heard about facebook with it’s 700 odd million users that seems to be growing leaps and bounds or is it just a fad ?

Is Social Media a fad ? Is Social Media a FAD ?? by

Like it? Create your own at It’s free and fun! >

Well lets think about that statement for just a moment. According to stats (those geeky guys that put numbers together and come up with something that makes some sort of sense) …. It took 38 years for radio to reach 50 million users … 13 years for tv …internet 4 years …. Facebook less than a year to reach 200 million users !!!

So to answer the question it’s not a Fad !! It’s a social revolution …it’s the new way people get heard whether it is a social or political change !!! Whether its a new product … a new business … a new trend its happening here on so many platforms …

Having had personal experience with the traditional form of contact … i.e. I had bad service with a store … so I emailed them … No or little response … But expose a company on a social platform the experience is quiet different … Not to say that we want to keep on moaning ….because as South Africans we hate to moan …. and like to get “bad service” wasting our hard earned rands ….

But in retrospect what we actually deserve is a product … a business a service that delivers all it promises ….


Well its a business that has recently been established, with a passion for creativity, whose goal & mission is to bring to those making use of it’s service both a unique & rewarding experience.
