How To Add Aweber to Your Facebook Page

Facebook is the biggest social media site on the Internet. With nearly 300 million users, you can’t afford not to be on it since it’s one of the best way to get your message across and connect with your readers. Many bloggers have created Facebook fan pages to keep people up to date on what happens on their blogs or businesses.

What you may not know is that a fan page can be a good source of opt in leads for your email marketing. If you go to my Facebook page, you’ll see a tab call “FREE EBOOK.” Clicking on the tab brings up an Aweber sign up box so you can subscribe to my newsletter and download my eBook. This is a good source of new sign ups and a great way to built your mailing list. If you’ve watched my video on how I make $40,000 with a blog, then you know how important a mailing list is. I added the Aweber sign up box using the Facebook Static FBML application. Here’s a screen shot of how the subscription box looks on my Facebook Page.

My Facebook Newsletter Sign Up Form

The Facebook Static FBML application will add a box to your Facebook Page so you can render HTML or FBML (Facebook Markup Language). What you do is simply add the Aweber opt in code and have Static FBML render it. The end result will be an email newsletter sign up box in your Facebook Page. Here’s a step-by-step video on how to do it.

  8. Veera says:

    Thanks for the information.

    I’ve seen in some blogs, Facebook is their biggest traffic building site. Putting a subscription option in Facebook, will definitely improve the readership count.

    Awesome John.

    I currently use Facebook’s Application called ‘Profile HTML’ It’s not quite the same as what you have done as it does not have it’s own ‘Tab’ but sits within the ‘Wall’ tab.

    To see this Facebook App, visit my page: and click the ‘Wall Tab’. The Profile HTML box is on the lower left.
    You are able to move it around your profile for best position.

    While it is not the same or nowhere near as effective as what you have done, it’s a start. The other downside is you are VERY limited with the amount of space to work with therefore limiting your text and any offers etc.

    Yours is awesome and a whole lot more effective. Not to mention totally customizable and inline with your overall theme and brand.

    Great work 🙂

    Nice idea. Good to see people putting facebook to the test and making it work well instead of it just being a static service.

    Hi John, thanks for the great tip.

    I followed the video and created a Free ebook page but how do you get the Page tab to show in the profile like the one you have?

    Care to share?

    1. John Chow says:

      Just follow the directions in the video.

  19. You should go through your facebook inbox LOL. You have quite a bit in there!

  20. Stefan Des says:

    A very useful tool.
    You can enter any html code?

  21. How in the world did you add a TAB that says “FREE EBOOK” to facebook??’s last blog post: Reaching New Heights

    1. John Chow says:

      Umm, didn’t you watch the video? 😛

  22. videostar says:

    The idea seems to be bright,the video is really praiseworthy.

  23. I am so behind. I don’t really know how to make a fan page that would make what I am doing any different than a regular page. And I don’t really have a marketing site more an information site. I’m going to have to figure out how to leverage an autoresponder but one step at a time. Ingenious idea.

  24. YumchaGirl says:

    Great information here John. This will make me pay more attention to my Facebook fan page. Thanks!!

  25. Lance Nelson says:

    my facebook cant seem to find any pages… and there’s no sign of that icon at the bottom of the page.

    if anyone knows the possible solution, i would live to know as adding my aweber sign up form sounds very senseible.

    This is a great feature to use to help build your email subscription list. The video is extremely detailed, so it should be fairly simple to implement. It helps if you have dual monitors so that you can watch the video on one screen, while following the steps on the other screen. 🙂

    very good info… i will try…
    can that make from getresponse bro?

  35. I just joined your fan page, and immediately went looking for how you added the FREE EBOOK tab, and it is right here. You have earned a new disciple John! I am starting a new project and it will be following all of your hints, tips and secrets. G.Y.W.G.T. Ahhh, the evil John Chow!

  36. The video explained it all very well John. The only thing missing was to change the name of the tab, which is easy to do when you’re adding the code – just change the wording in the Box Title. You may want to add a little introduction, too like “Sign up for the latest news on…”
