Tip: Adding a Subscribe Form to Your Facebook Page

If your business or organization has its own Facebook Page, Direct Mail makes it easy to add a subscribe form that looks great, syncs automatically with Direct Mail, and doesn’t require your visitors to leave Facebook to sign up! Here’s how to add a subscribe form to your Facebook Page.

Add a subscribe form to your Facebook Page with one click!

First, you’ll need to make sure your business or organization already has a Facebook Page. If you don’t already have one, click here to build one.

Once your Facebook Page is built and working, switch back to Direct Mail. Click on the Addresses tab at the top of the window and select the address group (from the list on the left) that you want your subscribe form to sync with. If you haven’t already, you’ll need to create a subscribe form for that group.

Once your subscribe form is created in Direct Mail, all that’s left is connecting it up to Facebook:

  1. Select your address group (from the list on the left)
  2. Click Subscribe Form: Edit Formsubscribe-form-edit-form-2
  3. Click Add Form to Website and select Add to Facebook Page…

That’s it! Facebook will confirm that you want to add the subscribe form to your Facebook Page. In Facebook terms, the subscribe form is an “app” that you add to your page.

Once it’s added, visitors to your Facebook Page will see a “Newsletter Signup” app icon at the top of your Page (next to the Photos, Likes, and any other app you’ve installed on your Facebook Page). If you want to change the name or icon of the app, that’s easy too.
