How-To: Embedding Your BombBomb Custom Form In Your Facebook Page

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

 

In this post, you’ll get step-by-step instructions to place a custom form you build in the BombBomb video email marketing software on your Facebook page.  Many of you asked about this, because you know that forms are a great tool to generate and capture leads and you’re actively using Facebook for marketing.

 

You can use your custom form in Facebook in two main ways.  The first and more permanent way is by embedding it as a tab or app; this is best for standing opportunities and offers.  The second and more temporary is by sharing it to your timeline, then featuring it; this is best for short term and special offers.

 

We’re using it in the first way and that’s what we’ll look at in this post.  We’ll cover the second way in the next post.

 

To get involved with BombBomb you can: 1) become a paying customer, 2) try it free for 2 weeks, or 3) receive a video email example.  We created a form for the third option.  It’s placed throughout our website, but we also placed it on our Facebook page behind a tab.

This video does not show you all the step-by-step instructions below. Instead it shows these 3 things:

  • Where to find your custom form embed code in BombBomb (copy)
  • Where to place your embed code in the Static HTML app (paste)
  • How to change the description and graphic for your Facebook tabs

 

Step-By-Step Instructions: Embedding Your Form As a Facebook Tab

> Click - https://apps.facebook.com/static_html_plus/ (link found by Google search for ”Static HTML: iframe tabs”)

> Click – “Add Static HTML to Page”

> Will bring up a star graphic that says Welcome

Click on the star

In your BombBomb account, in the “Forms” tab, click the “embed” button for the form you want to embed

Copy the “Embedded” code (iframe code), the paste it into the “Public Content” box of the Static HTML set up

Expand dimensions in the beginning of the code as necessary (we used 700 pixels wide x 600 pixels tall)

(Ignore the “[Optional] Fans-only content” box for our purposes here)

Click “preview” next to “save” to see what it looks like

Can change the graphic and the description from “Welcome” and the star that come with it (see video above)
