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.
