New Facebook Timeline Tips

Greetings Sellers~

We've been learning a few tricks with the new Facebook timeline. I wanted to share a few of them with you today.

Did you know you can upload a PDF document to your Facebook page? Check out the app (by searching for it on Facebook) called Scribd. It rocks! We're using it for our free ebook on the Poppy Swap Facebook page.

Want to custom edit tab names? Such as your app for your store, newsletter sign up or blog feed? Click here to learn how! This website is full of free information on how to rock Facebook.

Want to customize the image for a tab? Click here and she'll take you through a step-by-step process complete with pictures and diagrams.


We've also been learning that turning the cover photo into a promtional area works! Consider creating a custom photo that highlights a current sale in your Poppy Swap store, new product, photos of your apothecary/medicine-making/harvesting process, etc. People LOVE to get a sneak peek inside! Use that large cover photo with intention. It works!


What else have you been learning with the new Facebook timeline? Let's help each other out, share your experience here!

yay! thanks for the article and infomation. i was just working on networking and website stuff today so this is very fortuitous.

Pictures pictures pictures are essential. People llike to look at things more than read things on facebook I've realized. And even more so.... videos really catch people's eye. When I see that 'play' button on facebook to watch a video that might look interesting, I can't help but push it!

Agreed, James. And... we know that people love to watch those DIY/How-to Herbal videos. Planting another seed for the swappers!

Yay for these!


I was wondering if PoppySwap will be offering an app allowing people to post their storefronts on their FB pages. Etsy has one that I use for Boline but I would like to put up one for PS permanently. Is that in the works?

Boline: Witch made remedies, both medicinal and magickal, in Columbus, Ohio.

Hi Boline~

Yes, an app is in the 'works'... We think this will be a fantastic tool for our Swappers!


As of right now you can check out my FB page. I paid to have my programmer create this for me. The app we create will look similar to this.



Thanks for the suggestion! We welcome any input!
