How To Add An AWeber Form To Your Facebook Page

Adding an opt-in form to your Facebook Fan Page is not something many people think of as a way of gathering more sign-ups. While it’s explained on AWeber I thought I’d repeat the instructions here for you. It’s actually pretty easy, there are a few steps that need to be completed.

1. First, log into your Facebook account. Once logged in, type in “FBML” to the search box in the upper-right corner.
2. Find the application called “Static FBML”. It should be near the top of the page. Click the “Applications” icon, then click “Add to My Page”, found on the left side.
3. A new window will open containing all of your Facebook pages. Click the “Add to Page” button to the right of the page you wish to have this form added to. Once done, look towards the bottom of the page and click on the “Ads and Pages” icon.
4. Look towards the top and click on the “Pages” link. Scroll down until you find the section that reads “FBML”. Click on the pencil icon in that section and choose “Edit”.
5. Now, log into your AWeber account, and click on the “Web Forms” tab. Create your web form, then click “Get HTML”. A new window will open. Click “Raw HTML Version” in the upper-right hand corner, then copy the HTML for your form to your clipboard.
6. Now, go back to your Facebook account, and paste the HTML of your form in the box. Once done, click “Save Changes”.
7. Now, click on the “Ads and Pages” icon at the bottom again. Then, click “Pages” at the top.
8. Next, click “View Pages”. Near the top of the page, click on the tab with the plus (+) sign, and choose “FBML” from the drop-down menu.

  3. Joel, I have heard lot of IM Gurus mention not to add sign ups on social media site but rather use them as funnels to bring people to your sites where you try to get the opt in.

    Definitely your post only shows how to do it and not what are the best marketing strategies to follow.

    What are your thoughts on this as marketing strategy?

    1. I hadn’t heard that. I always like to give people as many opportunities to subscribe as possible. Why add an extra step for them to come to your site and sign up, when they can do it right there?

  5. Hi Joel
    I think I have just had one of those do do do moments!! Just last night in a very wet UK ( alledgedly a Hurricane by UK standards…..very tame by US) I was thinking about Facebook and fan pages and aweber……….. and then there you go straight into my inbox this morning!!

    Another question while surfing last night I came across a site that said there is a plug in for thesis which will automatically add an optin form to your side bar…again this relates to aweber??

    Any thoughts Joel.

    Best Wishes

    1. Ah, perfect! I haven’t heard of that plugin though, there is an Optin form Adder plugin, but I haven’t seen one just for Thesis.
