As an author, I've created a Facebook page for my pseudonym. I also have a coupon code for a free eBook that I'd like to distribute as an incentive to like my page.

How can I ensure that the code only shows up when you like the page? I don't necessarily need a whole landing page, but it should be easily found.

The only way I can imagine is by creating a Facebook application like one of these:

A custom tab


A promotional coupon


These are free for use the first time, and if you don't have a lot of fans (< 300), are always free.

Remember to activate the fangate option when configuring the app.
