If you are an author with not a lot of knowledge about html or iframes, this post is for you. There are two sites that I have found that can help you make a Facebook Author Page at no cost.
Quick & Easy
Pagemodo’s easy, step-by-step process will guide you through creating your Facebook page quickly and seamlessly. There’s nothing to download and no programming to do, so you don’t need to know how to use FBML or HTML. Just point and click, then publish instantly! Updates are just as simple.
Pagemodo: essentially lets you pick a template that you like and then lets you edit it for your business. Since your business is authoring, you would pick a template that will work for you. The page builder guides you through the process. There is an introductory video. There is a Frequently Asked Questions section with answers. There is also a help section with a contact form.
Pricing: For free pricing you get one tab and one Facebook page. There are three other plans that have a monthly fee but include more services such as a “like gate,” a like gate has a Welcome page and when the user clicks on like the page turns into another page with some kind of offer. You do not get that with the free plan. The other plans are very reasonable, I think. Check out the prices here: http://www.pagemodo.com/pricing.
Lujure : I found out about Lujure because some people were
discussing it on Linked In or Social Media Examiner Clubs. I can’t remember which. Then I went to a webnar about it. I thought it was really easy to use. It is very different than pagemodo. Instead of templates, it gives you a basic form with the dimensions of a fan page that you can add a bunch of different items to by just dragging them to the form where you want them. You can drag images, email forms, and tab gates, etc. It automatically installs your page into Facebook with one click.
Pricing : Lujure also has a free package. You get 1 tab and 1 package, but unlike Pagemodo, you get to use all the applications. The have two other price packages: https://lujure.com/plans. See the video introduction at https://www.lujure.com/.
