It’s the era of social media, and people have almost forgotten about the physical distances through it. Everyone can see what is happening around, and it also turns out to be a great way to convey business offers to the audience.
When it comes to social media, Facebook is one of the most leading platforms with the highest number of users. Businesses have great potential to showcase them and urge the audience to buy products or services from them.
App business is no more different from other businesses in this scenario, as there are a lot of tech-savvy users waiting for new apps every day. Creating a Facebook Page has always been a fruitful marketing strategy, but what if you have an entire app on your Facebook business page?
Yes! The AppsGeyser has come up with a free and easy to use template to turn your Facebook page into an app in just 3 minutes. Without any delay, let’s have a look at how important is an app like this one.
How a Facebook Page App Makes a Difference?
With more than 2.6 billion users around the globe, Facebook shares a massive opportunity for businesses to connect with customers. There are different types of users from different geographical boundaries and interests. Facebook saves the interests of the users as well as their favorite stuff to provide convenience to them while exploring the platform.
On the other hand, businesses can target a specific group of the audience based on their interests. Targeting the audience through Facebook proves to be one of the easiest ways in marketing campaigns. You can also promote your app business through paid advertisements.
Your app business identity should be there on Facebook to engage more people in your app business. Therefore, having a Facebook business page becomes necessary. Remember not to use your personal Facebook profile as your business page as there are many disadvantages of doing that.
Once your app business Facebook page has been created, you will need to attract the audience to your page. You should do that in every possible way, and one of the most effective ways is to turn your Facebook page into an app.
Research shows that smartphone users tend to use more apps than web browsers as apps provide convenience to them. Therefore, having a Facebook page app of your app business becomes essential; otherwise, you will be missing a great opportunity to engage the audience.
You will get the following benefits when you turn your Facebook page into an app.
- User engagement gets a boost: Since users spend more time on mobile apps, there are more chances for you to engage them with an app rather than the tiring process of opening a browser and searching for your page.
- Push Notifications: Through an app, you get ultimate control over what to show and what not to. You can also pop up push notifications on their smartphones to attract them. Special offers can also be conveyed to them through these notifications.
- Increases App Business Reputation: When you create an app from your Facebook page, your entire app business is being considered as a reputable one by the users. It turns out to be a great way to promote the entire product line of your app business.

Surprisingly, the primary task you will do is just to copy and paste your Facebook URL from the browser to this template. After pasting your Facebook business page URL, you are all set to click on the Next button to proceed further.
2. Name the App
An interface to name your Facebook page app will appear just like in the following image.
Now, you have to write the name of your app. Because of the nature of this app, you have to name it differently from other typical apps you develop. It’s an app that provides access to your social media page, which is hosted by a third party, of course.
You can combine your app business name with the Facebook word or choose another pattern to follow. Our suggestion is to name your app in accordance with your app business identity/name. In this way, users can find your app from the Play Store by just writing down your app business name.
The name of your Facebook page app should be:
- Relevant to your app business name
After finishing up the app name writing on the textbox given on the interface, click on the Next button to move towards the next part.
3. Select the App Logo
You will be surprised to know that it is the final step while making your Facebook Page app with our template. Now you will be asked to define a logo for your Facebook page app. A screen like follows will pop up.
As you can see, there is two option to select, one is the default icon, and the other one is the custom icon. You probably are seeing the default icon in just on the interface in front of the default icon radio button.
If you select the other Custom icon option, you can have the opportunity to upload your own app icon. Please remember that the recommended dimensions for uploading an app icon are 512×512. However, you can upload an app icon with large dimensions than this, but it will not look appropriate on the Android platform.
Since it’s an app with a unique purpose, the icon of your app should also be a unique one. Try to add some unusual colors to attract more audiences, but make sure to keep it clean and nice-looking. After uploading or selecting the default icon for your app, you are all set to hit Next.
This is it! Your app is ready to be created. Click the Create button to get your app ready to be published on the Play Store or any other app store.
