Cong-A-rats Mark!

I see you got all the likes and did not even set a custom URL for your page, which FB allows you to do after just 25 likes
Here are the FB instructions for setting a custom URL

I started to fool with FB a while back even created a custom FBML landing page for my page.
Though have been ignoring FB for the most part lately.
Twitter seems to be working out much better for marketing, once you build an audience

Thanks and also thanks for the custom URL info, I wasn't aware of that. I've now got http://www.facebook.com/MarkSmithPhotography which is much more cool!

How do you go about getting a custom landing page with FB..... I'm soooo green?!

To create a custom landing page
I followed the instructions I found on this site
http://armesphotography.com/2011/02/...welcome-pages/

Most of it was easy to do, the hardest was using photoshop to create slices and a map for the app button bar I created.
The above tutorial tries to walk you through doing that too.

You can repeat most of the exercise and create more additional pages if you want them, I created a portfolio page as well.

For some unknown reason you need to not be logged into facebook for it to hit the new welcome landing page once you have created it. If you are logged in it forces you to the wall page.

My first effort at a custom FaceBook landing page shows up here
