tape off wall?

Hi, I had a message board strip attached with the tape that came with it,to my painted wall. I hung too much on it and it came down. The tape is still on the wall. I will now be hanging TWO message boards strips approximately the same place, but I will be painting the wall first. How do I get the permanent tape off the wall before I paint?

Peel off as much tape as you can with your finger(nail)s, then sand and paint over.

Once the tape is off the wall, use the hairdryer to apply heat to any glue residue that might remain. Do not direct the hairdryer at the wall for more that 30 to 45 seconds at a time.
