How-To: Sharing Your Custom Form To Your Facebook Page

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

 

In this post, you’ll learn a few ways to share your custom form built in the BombBomb video email marketing software on your Facebook page.  Many of you have asked about forms on Facebook, because forms help generate and capture leads and you’re regularly using Facebook for marketing.

 

You can use your custom form in Facebook by embedding it or by sharing it.  Embedding it as a tab or app is the more permanent way – more suitable for standing opportunities and offers.  Sharing it as a link in a new post is the more temporary way – more suitable for short term and special offers.

 

We covered embedding a custom form in Facebook in a previous post.  Here, we’ll cover sharing.  Sharing has the advantage of going out to your fans’ and friends’ news feeds, rather than requiring them to come to your wall.  The disadvantage, of course, is that sharing is far more perishable (really – look at your Facebook insights and recognize that Facebook is selling guaranteed broader reach of your posts).

 

As you may or may not know, you can share your emails, videos, and forms from inside your BombBomb account directly to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+.  Even though we’re focusing on forms, the concepts covered here apply equally to your emails and videos.

 

 

Sharing to Facebook From Your BombBomb Account

 
In your Emails, Forms, or Videos tab, you’ll see direct sharing to 4 top social media sites on the right side of each asset (either email, form, or video).  Be sure to be logged in to Facebook as your business or organization, rather than as yourself, if you want the share to go up as the business page.
