Tools to setup a Facebook Business Page: FaceItPages
Now that FBML is a thing of the past, there was a bit of a shift in what people could do with their pages. For us develoeprs it isn’t much of an issue, but the beauty of the older systems is that your typical business owner could put something up without too much hassle and start gaining some extra leads. Over the coming weeks I’ll be reviewing some of the online tools for setting up Facebook Business Pages for those that are less inclined to jump into the thick of it. FaceItPages.com has an interesting toolkit, whilst their page themes definitely need a bit of sprucing up by a designer, the application base seems pretty solid, and includes;
Upload a company or business branded header to top your page off right.
5 navigation-style menu tabs which link to external pages of your choice.
Write a custom message to your visitors and fans with links and font formatting.

The pricing seems pretty reasonable with a base version which of course is free, and then 2 more options at $8 and $15 US. There are higher plans available, but they don’t add too much extra for end users to worry about.
