Our Facebook application will allow you to easily add a sign up form to a Facebook fan/business page. Due to the nature of personal Facebook profile pages it is not possible to add a sign up form to them. If you do not yet have a Facebook fan/business page you can simply create one.

Step by Step Instructions

  1. First, log into your Facebook account. Once logged in, click this link to add the AWeber app. After the page loads click the "Add App to Page" button.

    Once there, choose the page you'd like to add the app to, then click "Add Page Tab."

    This will take you back to your profile home page in Facebook.

  2. Next you will want to click the gear icon in the top right corner of your Facebook account and select the page that you had installed the app onto.

    Then hit the "Save Changes" button to install your form!

    Note: if you do not complete the above step then a form will not display when a subscriber clicks the "Email Newsletter" tab. Instead they will see a page that says "This Facebook tab has not been setup yet!"

    You will then see a pop up in which you can change the tab name from "Email Signup" to something different and the tab image from the default AWeber one to something else as well.
