Facebook is still huge. For pages, it might no longer be the same as it was, with fewer of our followers now seeing the posts, but it is still an important resource for bloggers and you should continue to maintain and market your page and use it to bring visitors to your site and subscribers to your newsletter. So in this video in the Mail Chimp Tutorial Series, I’ll be showing you how easy it is to add a newsletter sign up tab to your menu and a sign up form to your Facebook page.
If you don’t yet have a subscribers list set up, do go back and visit part one of this series and I’ll show you step by step how to get started. Note – you can make these videos larger using the full screen option bottom right, so you can follow through the on screen instructions more clearly. You can also increase the video resolution to give greater clarity and definition using the little gear icon that appears on the bottom menu once it starts playing.
