Your Facebook page can be linked directly to your OM3 address book – so your fans can sign up to your newsletter right from Facebook. You can now create and customize a subscription form that lives on your Facebook page and will automatically place a subscriber into your OM3 address book.
Be certain that you have administrative privileges to the Facebook page you want to add the OM3 Facebook Signup widget to. The following steps will help you complete an installation that takes about 10 minutes.
Read through these instructions first and become familiar with the steps. You’ll need to login to your OM3 account, create a signup contact list, get an API username and password, and customize your signup tab image. Once you do, you’re ready to install.
If you are not familiar with installing Facebook widgets or need assistance during any of these steps, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, and our technical support team will be glad to assist.
