CoolFBPages is an easy way to create beautiful Facebook Fan Pages which attract more fans and followers. The app helps users design pages that previously would have required the help of a programmer of CSS expert. Users can create custom page tabs, apply beautiful design templates that help the page stand out, and instantly apply widgets that make the page far more interactive. Those widgets could include video widgets, photo widgets, text widgets, and e-commerce widgets. Users can also create a “Fangate” which keeps visitors from seeing most of the page content until they have “Liked” the fan page, thus increasing followers and the effectiveness of any Facebook Fan Page social media marketing campaign. Users can also turn to the CoolFBPages design team if they would prefer to have an expert design their Facebook Fan Page for free.Show more screenshots »
CoolFBPages was created on January 1, 2012. It has not had a lot of time to develop much of a following, nor has it generated much buzz. Time will tell whether or not CoolFBPages will develop a following.
There are many similar apps such as Mediafeedia, Short Stack and Pagemodo. Those apps offer the same kinds of design tools. However, CoolFBPages is the only one offering the help of a fan page designer for free. Most of the other apps seem geared towards helping the owners sell their services, offering expensive design packages, or offering paid monthly plans.
The site is clean and easy to navigate, with a modern, intuitive feel. This is both true for the external site which introduces users to the product and the internal site which allows users to begin designing their Facebook pages. Users should be able to hit the ground running from the moment they get involved with the site. There is a tutorial video on the front page of the site, but few users will need it since CoolFBPages is essentially a WYSIWYG editor for Facebook fan pages that removes the need for CSS or HTML programming that would have achieved the same results in the past. Any computer user who is familiar enough with the web to navigate normal internet usage should be able to pick up on using the app right away.
The registration process takes seconds. Users simply log in with existing Facebook accounts. This is very convenient: registering for hundreds of sites gets painfully tedious at times, and jumping right to the Facebook login is both helpful to the user and in line with the focus of the site itself.
CoolFBPages is absolutely free, even for users who take advantage of a CoolFBPages professional designer. At present there do not seem to be any advertisements, either. It is unclear how CoolFBPages is monetizing the site.
Any small-to-medium sized business owner, solo entrepreneur, or internet marketer could benefit from using CoolFBPages to help a business Facebook page truly stand out from the competition. With hundreds of other pages competing for consumer attention this app is a good, cost-free way to give social media marketing a solid boost.
