    Great article, Kristi! Forms can also be added to Facebook Pages for a similar effect; exportable forms like GetResponse’s work great for that.

    Great point Graham! Have you been getting a good response from custom tabs since you can’t make them default landing pages?

    Hard to believe it’s been almost a year since the change! I’ve gotten good responses hosting contests on Facebook and directing email campaigns to Facebook forms. Hosting forms on Facebook gives customers a sense of security that they might not have had otherwise. Also, if you make the contest Fan-exclusive, you get Likes for your Page as well!

    Enjoyed the post Kristi.

    Notice how everyone has their own preference for the text of the call-to-action button? I’d love to hear what people are using on their forms and what’s worked best for them. It’s an element most of us do not test.

    Regards,

    Interesting article! I have a question: You mention the header as a good place to put the email form and show a bar as an example. I’d like to know what bar or wordpress plugin I could use to place my getresponse form like that in a bar. I’m trying to customize the viperbar. But it’s really a mess with the code getresponse provides. I need help.

    Hi Ayra, unfortunately GetResponse web form code does not support horizontal bars at the moment (so it won’t work with any WP plugin to do so) but it’s in the pipeline so we’ll let you know when it’s available!

    Hi, unfortunately I can’t give you a date at this point but will make sure to let you know as soon as I myself know any details!

    Can I have opt-In into Facebook?

  • Karolina Kurcwald

    Hi Alex, sorry, it is not yet possible to create horizontal forms in GetResponse, will let you know when this is done.
