Email marketing is a great way to build relationships and discover leads for your business.
An email list can be a great piece of collateral for your business. Imagine the possibilities open to you with a list of over 10,000 names that have opted in, to hear from you!!! 10,000 people that have given you permission to contact them.
Earlier this month we talked about Email Marketing Companies. Along with all the easy to use templates and tracking abilities these companies offer, they also provide the ability to create opt-in forms, using html code, which can be easily added to your online sites… including facebook.
Let’s take a look at how to add an email capture form to your facebook page. Note, you’ll need a “page” and not a “profile” to do this.
The Facebook App I use is called “my-info-welcome”. CLICK HERE to access the tab link.
Facebook offers a lot of helpful (as well as time wasting) apps. You can search the facebook apps directory HERE.
Once you open the “welcome” app, you’ll want to click the link that will add this app to your page. This action will give you a drop down menu so you can pick which page (if you have more than one) you’ll add the welcome tab.
Open your facebook page and pick “welcome” from the tab menu. If you have a number of tabs, you may have to click the arrow to find the welcome tab.
When the page opens, you’ll see “Welcome” “Your Page Name” and then the link to edit your page.
When you click on “edit tab” you’ll open into a page where you can add the html code from your email program or any other info you’d like.
By adding the code for your opt in form will give you the option of capturing names and possible leads through your facebook account.
I know this looks a little confusing, it was for me the first time too. But try it and if you have any questions please do not hesitate ask.
