Course Description

This set of video tutorials will walk you through, step-by-step how to transform and pull your WordPress site into a Facebook series of custom Facebook landing pages using the power of iFrames.

Whether you are trying to create a simple 'fan' page or you're a business wanting to create those all-important brand-aware, money-making Facebook landing pages, this course will take you  through the process. I have personally made a small fortune performing this task for businesses and I can tell you, it's a superb way to earn revenue by doing the same for others.

You don't need programming experience to do this course. Facebook's 'Timeline' feature has replaced the old Business or Fan Page look. With the topics covered in these videos, you can really help a business or brand move to the powerful world of Facebook, simply and easily, by 'replicating' their WordPress site.

There were many updates to Facebook that came with the addition of the Timeline to the "Fan" Pages and it can be confusing at first. However my instruction videos will show you how to make these changes work for you by using only FREE tools available on the net to pull your ENTIRE WordPress site – NOT JUST A PAGE – into your Timeline custom application pages. How great is that?!

- Do want to take advantage of the massive traffic potential the Facebook Landing Pages offer?

- Are you having problems creating custom page applications?

- Do you want to learn more about the Timeline for Pages?

- Would you like to create Custom Facebook Landing Pages for your offline business clients?

- Do you wish updating your Fan Pages was as simple as posting to your WordPress blog?

- Wouldn’t it be great to create your Fan Pages without having to outsource all the technical stuff?

After watching these easy-to-follow few video guides, you will be able to check each and every one of those items off your ‘Wish-List’! Not only that, you will be able to create an unlimited number of Fabulous Custom Facebook Landing Pages with ease.

Remember, updating your Facebook Landing Page is as easy as posting to your WordPress blog. You can even add plugins to your WP blog that auto-posts for you and make it a completely hands free ‘Auto-Pilot’ system!

Whether you are creating your Fan Pages for yourself or you are creating them for your business clients, using WordPress & the iFrame custom page applications are the coolest and easiest way to get the job done!

This one-hour long tutorial, which has been broken down into easy to follow step-by-step pieces, will show you EXACTLY how to configure your WordPress sites in order to create your Facebook Custom Pages. Super-Simple!

Section 1: Introduction and Objectives
In this introductory video, I go over the process of using the WordPress site as your custom page within the Fan Page (Timeline) on Facebook and what my overview is for this tutorial.
Section 2: Preparing WordPress for Facebook
This initial video takes a quick walk through of the install process using Fantastico along with a reference to the manual install from WordPress.org

We need to perform a basic cleanup of the default material like removing the default link roll, default page, post & comment as well as changing the permalink structure.


In this tutorial there are some final elements of customization before moving over to Facebook. I cover a couple customization codes like removing the top white space above the header image (this uses the 2011 theme) and most importantly the customizing of the width from the original 1000 px wide to either 520 or 810 pixel width.

Section 3: Preparing Facebook for WordPress

This video introduces the 'Fan Page' and the new Timeline feature as well as goes through the creation process and talks about the main elements of the Timeline for pages.


This video goes through the process of creating the custom page application needed to pull your WordPress Site into the Fan Page Timeline. Also shows the FREE service to use for the SSL url and how to use it. (Please note that I cover SSL in greater depth in the next section).

Section 4: Completing the Transformation

At last, let's pull this all together! I am able to show you how to finalize the custom page application to the Fan Page and we're all done.


Paid SSL versus FREE SSL - Free always sounds better than paid but in a lot of cases, you do get what you pay for. This video covers a couple of things you should consider when choosing between a paid or free SSL option. HINT, Time is money.


Another Option For Free SSL - Following on from my previous video, here are additional details for another option for you to acquire your SSL (secured) URL for your Fan Page Tab for free. It looks complicated but after watching this video you will be a master!

Attached as a resource is the index.php file mentioned in this lecture. Please note that Udemy does not permit uploads of .PHP extension, so after you download, please change index.txt extension to index.php

Section 5: Course Review

Section 6: Bonus Materials
7 pages

In a moment I will show you how to quickly make 5000 Facebook friends and market to them. But before we get to that, I'm going to tell you how you can dominate conversion rates by using the Facebook 'Events' feature...

7 pages

In this bonus article, I tell you how to make a Facebook account with 5000 friends and endless ways to promote to these targeted friends.

8 pages

Top internet marketers know that the best way of getting traffic from Facebook is creating your own fan page. The more fans you add, the more traffic you will get to your websites, products or affiliate links.

A Successful Fan Page Can Bring:

  1. Regular/Consistent Views
  2. Laser Targeted Traffic
  3. Highly interested Traffic

But here's the real treat; You won't be making a fan-page. Why do all that hard work when somebody already has? Here is how you do it...

7 pages

So, I have already taught you all how you can easily build a Facebook page

with 5000 fans, very, very quickly. Not only did I show you that but I also

showed you how to use the Facebook events feature to get high conversion

rates. Now I am going to show you how you can do exactly the same things

with a Facebook fan page to demonstrate how it can go viral.

Instructor Biography

Bob Vernon, Developer at Brenton Gateway Integration Services

I've been using WordPress for a number of years to the point where I customize sites in my sleep! Our company has worked predominantly with brands wishing to grow their customer base and expand their business. For this reason I work mostly with Facebook and Wordpress. I'm also adept in W3C Standard CCS3 and HTML5 Compatible SEO optimized design code providing continuous support and maintenance at any stage of a web project.

In my free time I like to help, particularly beginners to 'get on the ladder' in my industry.  To make my early tutorials attractive, I've identified areas within this industry that are not too hard to pick up, yet are lucrative business ideas to help the novice earning straight away. This is the primary reason I decided to try Udemy and share my knowledge here.

If my knowledge helps others and I gain enough students, I will continue to make tutorials and expand my library.
