New Facebook App: Add Signup Forms to Your Facebook Fan Pages

Apr 05 2011, 11:34 AM by

Update: As per changes in Facebook's policy from October 2011 one requires additional permissions for the application to manage pages.

We have made the necessary code changes to adjust the new structure and it should work, provided the steps below are followed.

Clients must follow the steps listed below in order to reinstate the app on their pages again:

1) Log in to Facebook and navigate to the page below
(http://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=applications).
You will need to delete the 'Benchmark Email Signup Form' from above page.

2) After completion of the prior step, please navigate to the page where you have inserted the Signup Form and click on the 'configure' button below. It will prompt you for the same permissions that it did the first time around with the addition of 'Manage Pages' which is now required to install the Signup Form in your pages.

3) You will need to edit the Signup Form settings (if everything went well with step 2, then you should be on this page without having to do anything extra), just save it once for good measure and you are good to go.

We have been discussing the importance of integrating email marketing with social media until we are blue in the face. Of course, it’s one thing to talk about it. It’s another thing to go out and do it. We’ve gone and done something that will make this integration easier on all of you. Benchmark Email has developed a Facebook app that allows people to subscribe to your newsletters from your Facebook Page.

For a step by step guide on how to install the app on to your Facebook Fanpage, check out - How to Add the "Signup Form" App to Your Facebook Fan Page?

Once the app has been successfully installed on your Facebook Fanpage, the final output will look like this:



The Benchmark Email Signup Form Facebook app automatically integrates with your Benchmark Email account. When people are on your Face fan page, they can add their contact information (email address), and all this information will go directly into the contact list/s (that you have chosen) in your Benchmark Email account.

Having issues with Step 2. "navigate to the page where you have inserted the Signup Form and click on the 'configure' button below." What page? The Facebook page? I tried to insert it, came up code. Or, back to the Benchmark page where I created it? There's no configure button that leads me to permissions. Followed each step. Got a different result. Please clarify as I'd like to take advantage of this feature for our business.

Lisa, Facebook has changed some things since this post went live. There's an updated How To in our FAQs or you can contact support directly for assistance with setting up the Facebook ap.

The form on Facebook does not contain all of the fields I specified for my form to contain. Help!

Kelly, You can also use a signup form that you designed in your Benchmark account. Simply copy the raw HTML into an iFrame app on your Facebook page. There are countless free options for iFrame apps. Hope that helps! Andy
