#2 Woobox

Woobox is a great replacement for users who had previously been using Involver or Wildfire apps for running campaigns or creating tabs that add their blog, Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram feeds to their Facebook page. The slick user interface of Woobox can help you grow your fanbase, spread your message, keep fans happy, and even convert  your anonymous likes into names and email addresses that you own. Their pricing plan is based on the number of likes you currently have and how many pages  you want to use the service on. Their free apps include an HTML fangate and tabs for Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest.

#3 Code to invite all friends

Creating Facebook events is a great way to generate attention for your upcoming business events. You can get people to notice the event by inviting your friends and encouraging those who are coming to the event to invite their friends too. If you have a lot of friends, it can be quite cumbersome to click through all the names. This method works for Facebook  only and with Google Chrome or Firefox 5.0 (not anything above 5) and allows you to invite ALL your friends at once to any Facebook event, group or page. Go to the event you want to invite your friends to, join the event and click invite friends, use the filter if you want to narrow the list down to a location or group, scroll to the bottom of the list and then paste the following code into the address bar:

javascript:var x=document.getElementsByTagName(“input”);for(var i=0;i<x.length;i++) {if (x[i].type == ‘checkbox’) {x[i].click();}}; alert(‘Done: please scroll and repeat until all your friends have been selected’);

*IMPORTANT – once you paste the code you have to reenter the word javascript: at the beginning of the text.

A word of warning. Some people have event invite fatigue and will mute you from their feed or even turn off event notifications from you. Be selective in how often you use this feature.

I recently stumbled upon this new tool that allows you to use video on your Facebook feed as a email collecting tool. We all know how to upload video on Facebook or even share a YouTube video, but what about using videos as marketing tools to get customers to opt in to your email marketing campaign. Post Visit their Facebook page for a few examples or visit the Post Magic web site to sign up. This is a paid service. Don’t forget the standard advice for generating leads…ADD VALUE.
