FaceBook Tab Manager…In short, we love it! PLUS Switchblade “Sharp Tip of the Week”
The plugin developed by Carr Communications called Facebook Tab Manager has opened new doors for customization of FaceBook pages. Custom pages in Facebook were once limited to the FBML app that only allowed basic HTML. With the release of this app along with the upgrade to FaceBook Pages introduced on February 10, custom pages can now be built using WordPress.
So many new possibilities for landing pages, forms, engaging with FB fans , and another portal to access websites without leaving Facebook. We’re excited to offer these new possibilities to our clients!
Switchblade’s Sharp Tip of the Week
Does your website utilize a form for site visitors to contact you and/or give you detailed information you need? Using the Facebook Tab Manager, you can now put that same form as a tab on your Facebook Page. And if you use a service like Mailchimp, it can be a feed of the same form that lives on your website so you still capture data to single database.
Our client, Jessica Lanyadoo, was the first to give us the opportunity to implement this feature to her Facebook page. She relies on her form to schedule new clients and existing clients, so giving her fans the option to sign up on Facebook will surely fill her calendar for the year (After just one month after her site launched in January, Jessica was already booked through July.)
