How to Install Static HTML on Your Business Facebook Page

By Amy Porterfield, Phyllis Khare, Andrea Vahl

Involver has an application you can use to market on Facebook and it is called Static HTML for Pages. You can display an image on your custom tab or write HTML code to display something more complex.

Involver allows you to use two of its applications for free; after that, you’re charged a monthly fee to use any additional applications. If you’re using two of Involver’s existing applications, you may want to choose one of the other iFrame applications for your custom tab.

To install the Static HTML for Pages app, log in to Facebook as your personal Profile and then follow these steps:

  1. Go to, and scroll down to the Static HTML app.

    This is where you will find Involver’s Application.

  2. Click the Free Install button.

    A pop-up window appears, listing the Pages you manage. Choose which Page to install the App.

  3. Click the Add to Static HTML for Pages button next to the Page where you want to install this app.

    You see a place where you get information about the app and select the visibility (who can see the app).

  4. Choose Everyone from the drop-down menu in the bottom-left corner (if it isn’t selected already).

    This option is usually already selected.

  5. Click Go to App.

    You see the permissions page.

  6. Click Allow.

    You’re taken to a page where you enter your company name and phone number and accept the terms of service.

  7. Enter your company name and phone number, check the box next to the Terms of Service link, and click Save Changes.

    You’re taken to a page where you can enter your HTML or select an image to display.


  8. Select the radio button next to the type of information you want to display:

    • Custom Image: A browser box appears, and you can browse your computer files to enter the image file.

    • Custom HTML: A box appears, allowing you to enter your HTML code.

    • Custom SML: SML stands for Social Markup Language and requires a license from Involver to use. You can find out more at

  9. Click Save Changes.

    You see your images uploaded in a preview box.

    You’re finished and can click Return to Facebook Page in the top-right corner to verify that your custom tab is working properly.
