Whenever new visitor visit to your page the first thing they see is the Cover page and the first thing they read is the About Line of your page. Then generally people read Timeline, click About section and read the description, contact info and see the page owners’ means Admins names. Then they may LIKE your page or just by About Line if it is catchy, they may LIKE your page.
Almost every page set the Welcome Page as a default landing page for new visitors. But from my experience I feel, people are interested to read the latest updates on your Timeline and secondly, welcoming is done by the Cover Page look already, though ‘LIKE our page etc.’ things are not allowed on Cover page.
