How to Add a Contact Tab for Your Facebook Fan Page with ContactMe




Do you have a contact form on your blog or website you manage? If you are still unable to create a contact page for your site, you may missing opportunity and your visitors find it very desperate to contact you. May be you are showing your contacts publicly. But don't you think it may attract spammers more than folks who wanna contact you?

We already discussed about it here, but if you have missed it, you can read why you need a contact form. In addition to your site, where else did you find that people tend to engage with you? Most probably it would be social networks. Isn't it true enough? What if someone who did find your Facebook page just need to contact you and they can contact you while on Facebook without going back to your blog or website?


Don't Wait for It...


Opportunities doesn't come on your way always. Contact form is a way for you to grab more opportunities from outside of your scope. So you have to open for it wherever possible and it can be a turning point too. If you are only finding that contact page on your site is enough for you, it's alright. But sometimes Facebook page is where some people come and look at, especially due to recommendations. Therefore if you are on a business or just an individual who manages a blog or website, Facebook page is a great way to open for opportunities.

"Opportunity does not knock. You have to find it." ~ Sumner Redstone

Anyway forget about sites, but you may have a Facebook page you manage and publish content. So there it is a huge advantage for you by having a way to contact you directly instead of showing off your personal or business email address publicly. Your fans may impressed with the work you do on Facebook and may need to contact you for suggestions, businesses or for such opportunities. You wanna miss them?


Contact Tab on Facebook Page


ContactMe is a contact management service we discussed earlier where you can manage contacts from one place and most probably you already know what it is now. Instead of contact forms for websites, it has a Facebook application where you can display a contact form on your fan page. So further you don't need to expose your personal email addresses for visitors as Facebook page is publicly accessible. It's really simple to set up, easy to customize (No need to update tab for future customization) and you will able to benefit from great features it provides too. Still don't wanna grab your opportunity?


Before You Go:

Prior to set up Contact tab on Facebook, you have to design a contact form with ContactMe. If you don't have a contact form ready, read How to Add a Contact Form to Your Website with ContactMe.


Steps:

1. Go to ContactMe Facebook Application page.

2. Click on Get Started button.


3. Now, select the Facebook Page you need the Contact tab installed.


4. Then click Add ContactMe - Easy Contact Tabs for your Fanpage button.

5. Navigate back to the Facebook page you selected, and click on new Contact tab.

6. Now you will prompt to enter your email address associated with your ContactMe account. Enter your email address in the given field and click Setup Account button.



Note: If you don't have a ContactMe account yet, it will automatically create one with the email you specify here.

7. If you already have a ContactMe account and given email address associated with your ContactMe account, it will prompt to enter password of your existing account. Enter your account password on next field and click Setup Account button again..

8. Once you find the "Setup Complete." message pops up, refresh the page to find your contact form.

Hey Mayura,

I do know about ContactMe, but I didn't know about ContactMe facebook application.  I guess one more thing to check out.

By the way, on search results my pic/avatar is showing under my personal development blog and travel blog, but it's not even showing on my sylvianenuccio.com blog! I did the same thing as far as I know, tough. Do you have any idea why it's not showing?  Let me know if you do.

Thanks Mayura :)

Hi Sylviane,

Yeah it's a cool application dear :) And if you have already created a contact form, you don't need to create one or Facebook tab. Really easy to set up :)

I've checked out your blog dear and I found your author tag as http://plus.google......rel=author. But before rel there should be a ? (Question mark) dear. So add a ? there.

i.e: http://plus.google......?rel=author

Hope now it's clear for you :)

Thanks for commenting Sylviane...

Cheers...

Great post again. Good work Mayura. The majority of my promotion goes through Google+ and Twitter, but FaceBook isn't really my favorite place for that (yet). I will certainly look into that though, because it's kinda stupid to let a (potential) 800 Million people market just pass by.

Mayura De Silva said...

Hi Jan,

You are exposed to 900 million people and you don't take it serious? ;) Yeah Jan, You may find it very helpful on Facebook as it let your fans and Facebook page visitors directly contact you. It's alright that you are not favoriting Facebook, but still opportunities will come on your way, not on Mark Zuckerberg's way, right? ;) And we can't measure how good it is for us without giving it a try, nah?

Thanks for your wonderful compliments mate :)

Cheers...
