How To Post Your Email Newsletter To Your Facebook Fan Page

Here’s cool little Aweber trick to start your weekend with. Aweber had the ability to post your email newsletter to your Facebook profile for quite a awhile. However, that ability didn’t extend to Fan Pages. This limitation wasn’t because of Aweber. The Facebook API simply didn’t allow it. That’s all changed with the recent updates to Facebook and Aweber has changed their integration so you can now post your email newsletters to your Facebook Fan Page. Here’s how.

Log into your Aweber account, go to “List Settings” under the “My Lists” tab and select the list you want to add your Facebook Fan page to. Click over to the “Personalize Your List” tab, and you’ll see a section call Social Meda / Sharing. You’ll be able to connect to your Facebook (and Twitter) account there.

Click the Connect with Facebook button. You’ll be taken to Facebook where it’ll ask you if you wish to allow Aweber to connect to your account.

Once you allow Aweber to connect, you’ll be taken back to Aweber and there you’ll see all the Facebook accounts that you control. You should select the Fan page you want as the default.

Now, when you write a new broadcast email, you’ll see a big Facebook graphic that’ll allow you to connect the broadcast and send it to your Facebook Fan Page (or whatever page you choose). You can connect your Twitter account using this same method.

Social media and email marketing are not mutually exclusive. The two works really well together. I use social media to get people to sign up to my newsletter and then use email to build the relationship and close the sale. If I had to choose, then I would take email over social media. However, I doubt we’ll ever have to choose one over the other so you should definitely have both an Aweber account and Facebook / Twitter account.

      1. d3so says:

        I knew about it but never used it. I used the twitter feature though.
        I should use the facebook feature as well.

      2. Hey, ppc ian, Have you tried it?

    2. John Rampton says:

      Me either, sounds like a great tip…

    3. Good info to know. I’ll have to start doing this.

  2. Hey John,

    I’m now learning more about Facebook and your post has perfect timing for me.

    Next Wednesday there’s an AWeber webinar so I wonder if they’ll mention anything about Facebook and fan pages and email newsletters. If they don’t I’ll ask them about it.

    Being able to post broadcasts into Facebook is really good.

    1. PPC Ian says:

      I really agree! This seems like a great way to convert Facebook fans into email subscribers. For people that have a big Facebook following, this seems like a great win!

    2. John Rampton says:

      Where is the webinar?

      1. The webinar is put on by AWeber if that is what you are asking. If you aren’t on their mailing list it may be too late to attend the webinar. But it may not. Go to AWeber’s page and there could be a link there. Failing that you can at least sign up for future webinars.

        I’m not sure if they’ll at all cover Facebook the way John did here but on live webinars you can ask questions.

    3. Good, find it out, and confirm here. It will be easy for others.

  3. Jayrweblog says:

    Hey John that’s cool. Sad to say I don’t have aweber account yet.

    1. John Rampton says:

      You should really get one, it’ll help with keeping track of your subscribers and getting them to come back to your site.

  4. Andy says:

  5. Guru says:

    This is news, good news nonetheless. I will be checking on that. I hope it works out ok and publishes the complete newsletter.

  6. I didnt really know that, I never tried to integrate anything to my facebook fan page yet. Thanks.

    1. It is easy to integrate to facebook fan page.

  7. fas says:

    But why would we want to paste it to facebook?

    1. Ivan Walsh says:

      why not? folks may not be aware of your newsletter and will see it there.

    2. PPC Ian says:

      The main purpose is to share great content with your FB fans, while driving more email signups.

    3. John Rampton says:

      Facebook is a great place to drive people back to your website. I’ve seen a huge increase in traffic when I placed a share button.

    4. Once we paste it to facebook, we will get subscribers easily.

  8. Hey John,

    Great tip man! Wasn’t aware of that. Tried it and it worked like a charm.

    Thanks man,
    Alex

  9. Ah this is awesome tools and tips John!! Got a gift form John on the week end. Thanks!!

  10. Great tip John. Love that Aweber is constantly innovating with great new features.

  11. Alexander W says:

    So does this mean that in order for them to read your message on facebook they first have to sign up to your mainling list? Or can they just be a fan and recieve the full message without signing up to your mailing list?

    If it’s the second then wont this have a negative effect since people no longer needs to sign up with your aweber to recieve the messages? I mean it’s a big difference in just posting to facebook than to recieve an email.

    Anyways, I dont have a Facebook fan page or an aweber account yet so why do I even care.. 😛

      It publishes your newsletter to Facebook. You can pick and choose which newsletter goes and don’t go. If it’s a promotional email, then putting it on Facebook would help spread the promotion. If it’s special content, then you can leave it out of Facebook.

  12. Joseph Bison says:

    Its a good technique to force the sign up. Thanks for sharing John

    1. I don’t think that anybody is forced to do anything. Would you want to force anybody to be on your list? What good would that do to their wanting to do anything then?

      People choose to be on your list because they want to. Facebook just gives them another opportunity and place where to do it.

  13. Dukeo says:

    This looks interesting, but isn’t that going to take your email list value down since the content become less exclusive?

    1. John Rampton says:

      I’d love to know the response to this question…

  14. Damn. Is there anything Aweber can’t do? Just when I was sure I knew all about it, another tip I had no idea about comes up.

    1. Aweber probably can’t wash your clothes or make your bed, but I heard it can cook your meals.

      1. LOL… it’s funny words..

        1. Work online says:

          Hey Semmy,
          Why did you this funny?even Its a good technique to force the sign up.

  15. I gotta get more regular about writing my newsletter for our healthy diet site.
