E-Mail Capture System Options for Your Facebook Business Page

By Amy Porterfield, Phyllis Khare, Andrea Vahl

You may already have an e-mail capture system set up on your website. Many e-mail systems such as Aweber.com have a Facebook app that you can access right from your accounts with those systems.

Check with the e-mail list system you’re using to see whether it provides an easy way to add your e-mail capture form to your Facebook Page.

If you’re using systems such as MailChimp, Constant Contact, or iContact, you can use the way they provide, or just copy the form code and paste it in an iFrame or Static HTML app, re-creating the same thing you have on your website. The trick is using an app where you can paste this HTML or iFrame code.

Here are a few apps you can use for e-mail capture if you don’t use the provider’s app:

  • Heyo: The free account allows you to completely design one app box. You can add images and all sorts of Like and Share buttons, and there’s a space where you can paste the HTML code from your e-mail service. You can use this app as a fan-gate, too.

  • Woobox: Sign up to try the HTML fan-gate app, and use your e-mail capture HTML.

  • Contact Tab: This particular contact app contains a place to display all your social accounts, company information, a map to your business (Bing or Google), and a header image.

  • Contact Form: You can use the free version or upgrade to the paid version if you’d like to add a custom footer and get other little perks. You can see a nice use of this app at http://bit.ly/FanPageFocus.

You can also use any of these suggested apps to create a page for a webinar sign-up form. You can see how the app boxes look on Amy’s Page. Notice the regular e-mail sign-up app box and the webinar app box.
