Add your Benchmark signup form as a custom tab on your Facebook page

You can add your Benchmark signup form as part of the tabs on your home page.

This method requires a little more work and time, especially if you are not a developer. Also, Benchmark can not troubleshoot signup forms within your Facebook account. However, if you’d like to try adding a custom Facebook tab, please use the resources listed below. To use this method, you’ll need an embedded signup form and the form’s URL.

IMPORTANT

The following information can guide you on how to create Facebook tab.

  • Your form will need an HTTPS (secure URL). Benchmark signup forms are equipped with HTTPS.
  • Your Facebook Business page must have 2000 or more fans.

If the points above apply to you, then you can continue.

  • Sign up as a Facebook developer with your same credentials at the following URL: https://developers.facebook.com/apps.
  • Once there, create an app.
  • In the app created, locate the Basic Settings, and add a platform (Use Page Tab option for the platform).
  • Paste your Benchmark Signup Form link in the Secure Page Tab URL box and locate your APP ID; you will use it later.
  • Note: You will need to use a third-party app to shorten the Benchmark Signup form URL.
  • Use the Page Tab Dialog to add the tab to your Facebook Business Page. Another less complicated way can be pasting this text in a new window of your browser and replacing the red text with your information:

http://www.facebook.com/dialog/pagetab?app_id=YOUR_ID_APP&next=SHORT-BENCHMARK-FORM-URL

  • Finally, select the page where you want to add your custom tab.
  • Click here to see the Facebook doc about tabs.
